Honors Senator Robert Taft, the namesake, with Representative Fred A. Hartley, Jr. of the Taft-Hartley Act, a United States federal law that monitors the activities and power of labor unions. Taft-Hartley became law by overcoming U.S. President Harry S. Truman's veto on June 23, 1947; labor leaders called it the "slave-labor bill" while President Truman argued that it was a "dangerous intrusion on free speech", and that it would "conflict with important principles of our democratic society".
