Co. v NLRB (CA2) 110 F2d 148. Whatever may have been the law of earlier times, it is now crystal clear that the rights of working men to organize and to designate their representatives for purposes of collective bargaining are clearly recognized both by the courts and statutes. No longer can there be doubt that a labor union when authorized by its members may make contracts in their behalf. 31 Am J Rev ed Lab § 86.
