Address delivered by John E. Fogarty at the American Federation of Labor, Rhode Island State Convention


Title:
Address delivered by John E. Fogarty at the American Federation of Labor, Rhode Island State Convention
Creator:
Fogarty, John Edward, 1913-1967
Date:
16 May 1943
Description:
Fogarty supported the rights of war-industry workers who threatened to strike, although some critics called this unpatriotic. A United Mine Workers strike in May 1943 prompted the rapid passage of the Smith-Connolly Act (aka the War Labor Disputes Act) in June; the act placed extra constraints on strike actions, and allowed the federal government to seize and operate industries threatened by strikes that would interfere with war production.
