Sample text

The difficulties of applying the ‘‘unlawful objectives’’ test articulated in Duplex, the opportunity for judicial bias, and the artificial nature of judicially fashioned boundary lines became apparent in Coronado Coal Company v. 27 The opinion was written by Chief Justice Taft. Evidence established that a strike had been prompted by the ‘‘keen competition’’ between nonunion employers and employers that had bargaining relationships with the union, and the Court concluded that this demonstrated an unlawful attempt to prevent the manufacture and production of goods and to restrain control of their supply entering into interstate commerce.

Duplex arose out of a suit for injunctive relief to restrain a secondary boycott against a printingpress manufacturer in Battle Creek, Michigan, employing about 200 machinists in the factory in addition to some office employees and others. The company followed an ‘‘open shop’’ policy, purportedly refusing to discriminate against either union or nonunion men. The union, which had as its goals a closed shop in which only union members could be employed, the eight-hour day, and the union scale of wages, called a strike at the factory.

Contempt problems arose regularly, sometimes because of liability that was imputed to the union by conduct of other parties through the ‘‘vicarious responsibility’’ doctrine.

The concerns expressed by Justices Brandeis and Holmes in previous opinions became increasingly vexatious after the Duplex decision and the increased popularity of the labor injunction.
