National Labor Relations Board V. Jones & Laughlin Steel Corp

(301 U.S. 1 1937)
   In the case National Labor Relations Board v. Jones & Laughlin Steel Corp. on 12 April 1937, the Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of the National Labor Relations Act. The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) had found the Jones & Laughlin Steel Corp. guilty of unfair labor practices in firing union members and had ordered it to cease and desist. When the company refused to comply, the NLRB took them to court, and the case eventually reached the Supreme Court. The court upheld the right of Congress to legislate on labor relations and extended the meaning of interstate commerce in arguing that some intrastate commerce could be within a “stream” or “flow” of interstate commerce and therefore crucial to it.
