Qualified Reuther Victory

July 1956
New Republic;7/9/56, Vol. 135 Issue 2, p6
The article focuses on the foreign policy clash between American Federation of Labor & Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) president George Meany and vice-president Walter Reuther. The controversy was precipitated by Meany's attack on the Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. Reuther joined the battle to settle once and for all the status of Meany's foreign policy adviser Jay Lovestone and his Free Trade Union Committee, left undecided by the merger of negotiation. In his recent compromise with Meany, Reuther has cramped Lovestone's style to a gratifying extent.
