Appellant, a local union of the American Federation of Labor, sought a declaratory judgment and equitable relief in the Nebraska courts as a result of appellee's refusal to discharge certain employees who had failed to maintain membership in the union. The employer relied on an anti-closed shop amendment to the Nebraska Constitution forbidding discrimination in employment on the basis of affiliation with a union and prohibiting contracts for this purpose. Appellant's assertions of invalidity of the amendment under the Federal Constitution were rejected by the state courts. Upon appeal to the United States Supreme Court, held affirmed, all justices concurring. Lincoln Federal Labor Union No. 19129, AF.of L., v. Northwestern Iron and Metal Co., (U.S.1949) 69 S.Ct. 251.
