The decision in a recent case to the effect that a dispute concerning the construction of a contract of employment between a labor union and a railroad may be adjusted by carrying it before the Railroad Adjustment Board, or by carrying it directly to the courts makes this an apt time to examine the applicability of the doctrine of prior resort to disputes. covered by the Railway Labor Act. Such an examination seems especially necessary in view of the fact that in such cases the courts have not even mentioned the doctrine.
