National Labor Relations : 

National Labor Relations National Labor Relations is a 1935 United States federal law that protects the rights of most workers in the private sector to organize unions labor, to engage in collective bargaining, and to take part in strikes and other forms of concerted activity in support of their demands. The Act does not, on the other hand, cover those workers who are covered by the Railway Labor Act, agricultural employees, domestic employees, supervisors, independent contractors and some close relatives of individual employers.

Amendment of this Act : 

Amendment of this Act Opponents of the Wagner Act introduced several hundred bills to amend or repeal the law in the decade after its passage. All of them failed or were vetoed until the passage of the Taft-Hartley amendments in 1947 for such things as triple damage awards and mere sight checks of union authorization cards for a union to be certified as the collective bargaining representative.

The Enforcement : 

The Enforcement the first few years of the Wagner Act many employers simply refused to recognize it as law. The United States Supreme Court had already struck down a number of other statutes passed during the New Deal on the grounds that Congress did not have the constitutional authority to enact them under its power to regulate interstate commerce.
