Strike - and litigation - drags on

The American Federation of Labor, unsuccessful in settling the dispute, gave the IA 60 days to obey the “clarification.“ The Alliance held its ground and the strike dragged on throughout 1947.

Litigation in the courts was extensive. The Carpenters Union, supported by the CSU, brought one suit after another trying to oust the IA from the studios. Without exception, each suit was dismissed and on appeal the rulings were upheld.
