The language of section 9(h) of Title I of the Labor Management Relations Act of 1947 conditions assertion of rights under the act by a labor organization upon its submission to the Labor Board of particularly described affidavits executed by each of its local officers and the officers of "any national or international labor organization of which it is an affiliate or constituent unit." The Board had considered the scope of the quoted phrase not to include the federation type of organization. The Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit had agreed with the Board's construction. The Fourth and Fifth Circuits, and one district court, had taken a contrary view. The Supreme Court in the recent decision in NLRB v. Highland Park Manufacturing Company accepts the latter view.
