The article looks at both past and pending U.S. National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and court decisions. In the U. S. Supreme Court decision on the case of Carey v. Westinghouse, it declared a dispute between two unions as "so-called jurisdictional dispute," that may involve either "representation" or a "work assignment". The Taft-Hartley Amendments of 1947 gave the NLRB a statutory basis for resolving and stopping "jurisdictional" disputes. In the inconsistent arbitration awards involving McDonnell and Co., NLRB argued the dispute involved a "representation" and not a "work assignment" issue.
