From the International Socialist Review: World of Labor
Max S. Hayes uses his column to warn Labor about the recent N.A.M Convention.
During the past month [April 1903] the annual convention of the National Association of Manufacturers was held in New Orleans, and In his annual address, which covers sixty pages, book form, President Parry did not mince words in referring to organized labor. He reiterated his former charges that the unions are lawless institutions and should be destroyed root and branch. He accused the so-called "pure and simple" leaders with attempting to bring about Socialism by forcible methods and differed in this essential with the Socialist Party, which was aiming to accomplish the same end through the ballot-box. Of course, Gompers and other national officers are storming and declare that Parry does not present the real views of the manufacturers ...But, all the same, the delegates in New Orleans almost to a man endorsed the sentiments of Parry.SOURCES

From Stern Burger with Fries: Results from Kaiser Election
Late in the afternoon, the NLRB announced its election results… which left many observers surprised and stunned given the outpouring of support for NUHW during the campaign. Here are the results, according to the NLRB's website:More here:
SEIU-UHW: 18,844, NUHW: 13,101, No Union: 334.
Tasty’s sources say the scene at the final vote count was quite revealing. Apparently, the happiest people in the room were not SEIU-UHW... but Kaiser! As the NLRB announced its final tally, Kaiser executives reportedly grinned from ear to ear.
Kaiser has not only kept its preferred “partnership” union atop the 45,000 workers, but it has made SEIU-UHW even more endebted to Kaiser as a result of the HMO’s extensive election assistance… which included Kaiser’s withholding of annual bonuses from NUHW’s members and blocking NUHW’s supporters and staff from accessing Kaiser facilities.
