Comparing Taft-Hartley to NLRA
The National Labor Relations Act has a U.S. Legislation infobox while this act has a Labor infobox. Are there any objections to removing the Labor infobox in favor of the U.S. Legislation infobox? Or should both be used? Biccat (talk) 15:43, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
Agreed. Could someone more savvy than than I remove the current infobox and replace it with a legislative infobox to the NLRA's template (with long name, nickname, enactment date, date of effect, citations codifications legislative history, major amendments and significant Supreme Court cases relative to the act.)? 22.214.171.124 (talk) 20:58, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
Swigert and Bill Authorship
The introduction states: The principal author of the Taft–Hartley Act was J. Mack Swigert  of the Cincinnati law firm Taft, Stettinius & Hollister.
Citation 5, a link which contains an interview of Swigert himself, provides a more accurate description. this. "[Taft] asked Mr. Swigert for advice...Several weeks later, [Swigert] had produced three pages of suggested amendments to the Wagner Act. Included were the right of workers to stay out of unions and the government's ability to end strikes in the name of national security.. But he insists that he did not write the Taft-Hartley bill, noting that only Mr. Taft had the political muscle to push the bill through.
Since the core bill's spirit was suggested by Swigert, and supposedly much of the letter (and it would be interesting if someone found documentation of Swigerts suggestions, followed by drafts of the TH act, and compared it to the bill in its final form to make this evaluation) it may not be a far stretch to call him principal author or the principal author, but that begs the question what does authorship entail? 126.96.36.199 (talk) 20:58, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
"According to First Amendment scholar Floyd Abrams, the Act "was the first law barring unions and corporations from making independent expenditures in support of or [in] opposition to federal candidates". However, there is no language in Taft–Hartley that actually bars such contributions and, upon a careful reading of the cited article, it can be seen that Professor Abrams is merely hypothesizing about what could happen had the Supreme Court decided the case of Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission differently."
