Collection material in English
The Committee on Industrial and Labor Relations was formed by Joint Resolution of the New York Legislature on 18 March 1938.
Under the chairmanship of Assembly Majority Leader Irving W. Ives, it conducted investigations of and proposed legislation
concerning the arbitration of labor disputes, unemployment compensation, the self-regulation of industry, the moving of industry
into and out of the State, and profit-sharing as an incentive to better labor relations. By resolution of 26 March 1940, the
Committee was renamed the Committee on Industrial and Labor Conditions, and its functions expanded. In 1943, it published
The American Story of Industrial and Labor Relations, a short volume tracing the development of social welfare legislation
in industrial and labor relations areas.
