National Labor Relations Board, Fort Worth Office Records:
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is a federal agency that conducts labor elections, mediates disputes, investigates charges, and enforces laws as they pertain to labor issues. During the 1930's, the Fort Worth regional office of the NLRB conducted investigations and hearings pertaining to labor disputes throughout the state of Texas. One such hearing involved the the Ford Motor Company plant in Dallas, Texas and the actions, including violent episodes, undertaken by the company and its supporters to prevent attempts by workers to unionize at the plant.
The records consist of a scrapbook of newspaper clippings and correspondence. Clippings pertain to labor issues in Texas and include topics such as the National Labor Relations Board, labor unions, legal matters, violence, organized activities and various strikes that occurred from 1934-1940. Many clippings as well as some correspondence in the scrapbook pertain to a National Labor Relations Board hearing against the Ford Motor Company plant in Dallas.
