Frank I. Michelman, State Power to Govern Concerted Employee Activities, 74 Harv. L. Rev. 641 (1961).

Abstract: A recent Supreme Court decision and recent federal legislation have focused attention upon the question of state court power to provide compensatory or injunctive relief against concerted employee activities. The author considers this problem of preemption as a conflict between the national interest in a uniform labor relations program and the state interests in preventing local economic disruptions and compensating injured individuals. His analysis suggests the possibility of a more satisfactory accommodation of these interests than is provided by presently accepted principles.
