Description

Excerpt from Jurisdictional Disputes Resulting From Structural Differences in American Trade Unions For the last decade their adjustment has been one of the chief concerns of the Executive Council of the American Federa tion of Labor, to say nothing of the numerous conference commit tees of the individual unions, which with varying success have been considering these questions. Furthermore, with no question has organized labor up to this time been so helpless. Jurisdictional disputes result from: (1) Similarity of craft technique, which renders accurate demarcation between crafts difficult. (2) Changes in the technique of industry, which transforms the skill requirements of a particular kind of work and thus brings a new group of workers into competition for it. (3) The introduction of new commodities, which either partially or entirely supersede the older commodity. (4) Political, social and geographical divisions among Workers in the same craft, resulting in the formation of dual unions. (5) Personal ambi tion and jealousy of leaders of different factions. (6) Structural differences of unions, which may be the result of any one, or any combination, of the foregoing causes of dispute. It is my purpose to discuss jurisdictional disputes arising from structural differences of the unions. These disputes center around the industrial union.
