ABSTRACT
The provision in the Taft-Hartley Act requiring a union security election as a precondition for a union shop agreement has been under almost continuous fire since the act was adopted in 1947. It has been charged that particularly with regard to the maritime unions and the building and construction unions the Taft-Harrier Act provision had been detrimental to the interests of organized labor. In this article the application of the provision in the building and construction industry is explained and examined.
