The article presents various decisions of the U.S. courts and administrative agencies relating to labor relations. The article adds that the New York State Labor Relation Board's (NYSLRB) fight with the NLRB to obtain "State's rights in labor relations matters" resulted in a round of victory for the underdog this month in two cases involving local New York taxicab companies. Under the jurisdictional yardstick established by the NLRB last year, one of the categories is called "instrumentalities and channels of interstate or foreign commerce," and under this category the national board has been claiming jurisdiction over local cab companies, maintaining that their activities "affect" interstate commerce (even though they are not "engaged" in interstate commerce because they carry passengers to and from interstate railroad, bus, ship and air terminals. The NYSLRB, in its annual report for 1950, discussed extensively the whole question of NLRB jurisdiction of predominantly local matters, and expressed its ire over the national board's taking local cab cases.
