The committee heard testimony on House Bill 5, which would amend the National Labor Relations Act and the Railway Labor Act to prevent discrimination against workers who participated in strikes. The bill would ban the permanent hiring of replacement workers for employees involved in strikes, and has strong support from organized labor and the Democrats in the House of Representatives. Labor Secretary Martin said the president would veto the bill if it was introduced to him, on the grounds that it would affect the currently healthy state of labor/management relations by encouraging the increased use of strikes. Labor officials support the bill because it gives workers greater bargaining leverage without the fear of being fired for participating in a strike. close
