The article presents information about labor law in the U.S. When the labor committees of the 83rd Congress settled down to their business several weeks ago, there was some cautious optimism and a little wishful hoping by labor that something might be done about the Taft-Hartley Act. U.S. President Dwight David Eisenhower's campaign speeches had pledged a "fair and just" labor law. The surprise appointment of Martin Durkin as Secretary of Labor, who had consistently advocated repeal of the Taft-Hartley Act, was an even more encouraging sign. Full-scale hearings on the Taft-Hartley Act were ordered in both houses and the committees went seriously to work.
