Gelbe Gewerkschaften#

Labour Unions, "Yellow" (Gelbe Gewerkschaften) or peaceful unions were associations which generally rejected combative measures for obtaining their goals and were often supported by the management as well. Played a certain role during the 1st Republic: In 1928 the "Independent Unions" were founded in Leoben; they had close ties with the Heimwehr units (para-military forces) and were especially promoted by the Oesterreichisch-Alpine Montangesellschaft. Christian unions were also often called "yellow" by their opponents.
