This article presents information on Taft-Hartley Act related to labor laws in the U.S. Some of the legalistic changes made by Senator William Howard Taft's law, not yet generally denounced, are proving to be added allies. To the small, newly formed union this combination is devastating. How these legal steps work under Taft-Hartley is better shown by a current case out of Kentucky, where the employers' lawyers recognize the new tools handed to them by the new law. The employer has a right to ask for a re-hearing, which is almost always denied, but it eats up more time. When the rehearing is denied, the employer will probably turn toward the Supreme Court with a petition.
