ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the Railway Labor Act in the U.S. Any state constitutional provision or law forbidding the union shop is inapplicable to a collective bargaining contract within the scope of the Railway Labor Act. Yet when the Supreme Court performed this elementary exercise in logic, it provided another, occasion for cries of alarm from the U.S. Congress and mutterings in the press about the court's usurpation of power. The campaign to indict the court as a usurper has gained considerable momentum. It is bottomed on the opposition of some Southern political leaders to the court's segregation decisions.
