AMENDMENT TO THE CODE OF FAIR COMPETITION
FOR THE COTTON TEXTILE INDUSTRY
Section XVII of the Code of Fair Competition for the Cotton
Textile Industry is hereby repealed and the following provisions
shall be substituted therefore:
"XVII (1) The Textile Labor Relations Board shall appoint a
Cotton Textile Work Assignment. Board, to be composed of an im-
partial chairman, one representative of the employers subject to the
Code of Fair Competition for the Cotton Textile Industry, and one
representative of the employees in that Industry.
"(2) In order to provide opportunity to develop a sound method
and adequate organization for the regulation of work assignments,
no employer prior to February 1, 1935, shall make any change in
work assignment of any class of employees which shall increase the
effort required over that prevailing on September 21, 1934.
"During this period the number of looms, frames or other ma-
chines required to be tended by any class of employees shall not be
increased where the character of the raw material, yarn, construc-
tion of cloth, preparatory processes, type of equipment used, or
character of finish or put-up, is not changed. Where such changes
do occur the number of machines tended by such employees may be
increased or decreased in such manner as will not increase the
amount of effort required of the worker.
Where, during the period above referred to, a mill resumes the
manufacture of any specific product which it has made within six
months prior to September 21, 1934, and where the conditions of
manufacture enumerated in the preceding paragraph are not changed,
then the work load formerly used on such product shall be the guide
in determining the proper work assignment.
"Where, on September 21, 1934, a new style of yarn or cloth or
any other new type of product was in course of introduction or is
thereafter during the period above referred to introduced into a
mill or finishing plant, a tentative work load may be established
during the period of determining a proper work load in accordance
with the foregoing principles.
"(3) Prior to February 1, 1935, on petition of any employee or
employer affected, or his representative, or on its own motion, the
Cotton Textile Work Assignment. Board may investigate any work
assignment which has been increased since July 1, 1933. at any mill
and the mill shall show the reasons for such increase. If after hear-
ing the Board finds such assignment requires excessive effort it may
require its reduction accordingly.
"(4) The Cotton Textile Work Assignment Board shall have
authority to appoint district impartial chairmen and such other
agents as it may select and to issue rules and regulations to carry
out the foregoing provisions of this Section.
"(5) The Cotton Textile Work Assignment Board shall, subject
to instructions of the President, make a study of actual operations
in representative plants and report to the President as to a permanent
plan for regulation of work assignments in the Industry."
