ABSTRACT
The article presents a case concerning the violation of the no-strike law in New York City. New York City teachers have been out on strike at the instance of President of American Federation of Teachers Albert Shanker in violation of the state's Taylor Law. Albert Shanker had willfully violated the temporary court order to comply with the Taylor Law. Irving Saypol, New York's leading judge, has announced that he himself intends to sit as a Criminal Court judge in bringing Shanker to justice. Shanker was sent to jail twice in recent years for the same offense he has committed this year. The violation of the Taylor Law Shanker could lead to an imprisonment of 15 days which Shanker has served in 1967 and 1968. However, a contempt of court conviction would result in a sentence of up to a year in jail.
