ABSTRACT
This article presents information about the visit of U.S. labor leader Walter Reuther, to India. Accident rather than design has forced the pace of the foreign-policy showdown between President of American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO). George Meany and Vice President Reuther, although Meany's attack on Reuther's trip to India at the May 1 AFL-CIO council meeting was itself hardly accidental. Now that the showdown has come, both would agree that the basic issue is not Indian Prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru at all. For anti-Communist Indian labor federations, Meany made fellow-membership with the U.S. labor in the International Confederation of Free Trade Unions a serious local political liability--at the very moment when a new Communist-backed Arab-Asian labor alliance was making friendly overtures to the Indians, and when the Indian unions were engaged in a critical struggle against Communist penetration of railway and defense industries.
