On January 12, 1942, President Franklin D.
Roosevelt revived the National War Labor Board (NWLB) for World War
II. In order to prevent wartime labor stoppages, the NWLB was set up
to arbitrate labor disputes that arose during the war. The NWLB also
managed wage controls over the airplane, automobile, shipping,
mining, telegraph, and railway industries during the war.
The original NWLB was created by President Woodrow Wilson during World War I for largely the same purposes. Read Cornell University's collection of NWLB files from both World Wars.
