The evolution and current state of relations between the labor movement and the Negro community are the subject of this study. The author, after tracing early strains in these relations, examines the period of rapprochement during the era of the CIO, which, in turn, was succeeded by increasing tensions following the AFL-CIO merger. Despite these tensions, the author concludes that Negro unionists are not likely to withdraw from the labor movement, and that the latter can be expected to undertake an increasingly vigorous policy of eliminating discrimination in its ranks.
