National Labor Board

   Established in 1933 to ensure that the labor-related aspects of the National Industrial Recovery Act (NIRA) were applied, the NLB was chaired by Senator Robert F. Wagner and included labor and business representatives. It helped settle several industrial strikes but increasingly faced criticism from employers and organizations like the National Association of Manufacturers. When companies decided to ignore clause 7(a) of NIRA, the board had no power. When General Motors made clear that it would not cooperate when faced with a dispute, President Franklin D. Roosevelt bypassed the board. The NLB was abolished in 1934 by executive order. It was replaced by the National Labor Relations Board.
