The enactment of the National Industrial Recovery Act last June inevitably has brought to the fore a number of questions which as yet remain unanswered, including those connected with the application and interpretation of Section 7(a) of the Recovery Act, the subject of this article. Under this section, hailed by labor as a "new Magna Charta," employees are apparently given two interrelated rights - the right to organize with no discrimination against them by employers as a result thereof, and the right to collective bargaining through representatives of their own choosing. Employers are prohibited from interfering with such rights through intimidation or coercion, and "yellow dog'' contracts are specifically outlawed.
