6979 Of Brothers Philip Abramovitz, Max Spahn, Harry Singer, Sam Silverman, against fine imposed by D. C. 9, New York City.

Neither the constitution of the Brotherhood nor the constitution and by-laws of the Council give the D. C. the right to appoint a shop or job foreman. That is a prerogative of the employer.
