This article addresses the difficult legal issues involved in labor sympathy strikes. The Supreme Court had earlier allowed for injunctions when a union strikes over a matter that could be brought to arbitration. Does a federal court have the power to enjoin sympathy strike when the strikers do not have a dispute with the primary employer that could be brought to arbitration? Professor Abrams explains why courts should not enjoin such sympathy strikes, an outcome later accepted by the Supreme Court.
