Four decisions rendered by the Supreme Court. at the close of the 1950 term may alleviate some of the confusion inherent in section 8(b)( 4)(A) of Title I of the Labor Management Relations Act of 1947. This section, whose concern is with the motive with which union activity is undertaken, rather than with the character of the activity itself, is probably the most "broadside" in the act. In essence, it purports to prohibit labor unions from engaging in or inducing strikes and concerted refusals to handle goods, "where an object thereof is ... forcing or requiring . . . any employer or other person ... to cease doing business with any other person."
