The article comments on the paper, Unions and the Negro Community, by Ray Marshall, published in the January 1964 issue of the "Industrial and Labor Relations Review." The author finds some misinterpretations in Marshall's writing about the case of Ernest Holmes, a Negro worker, against Local 10 of the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union before the New York State Commission for Human Rights, the agency that administers the state's fair employment practices statute. Marshall characterizes the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People'S effort to secure the decertification of anti-Negro trade unions by the U.S. National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) as a failure. Furthermore, the recommendation by an NLRB trial examiner that the certification of the Independent Metal Workers Union be revoked at Hughes Tool Co. in Houston, Texas because of discriminatory racial practices, which Marshall refers to, is now before the Board and it has been anticipated that it will be sustained by the full NLRB.
