In negotiating collective bargaining contracts for 1948, respondents (National Maritime Union and its officers) insisted, as a condition precedent to entering into any agreement, upon continuation of existing hiring hall provisions. After refusal of the employers to agree to such proposal, respondents called a strike. Upon filing of charges of union unfair labor practice with the N.L.R.B., held, respondents' activities constituted violations of sections 8 (b) ( 2) and 8 (b) (3), but not of section 8 (b) (1) (A) of the National Labor Relations Act, as amended by the Labor-Management Relations Act. Member Gray dissented from the 8(b) (1) (A) ruling. In re National Maritime Union of America (C.I.O.), 78 N.L.R.B. No. 137, 22 L.R.R.M. 1289 (1948).
