REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The~ I'h ite Ho-use.
SIR: The Codle Auithority of the Aultomoltive Par~ts and Eq~uipmlentf
Manufacturing Industry has made application inl behalf of said.
Industry that the Code of Fair C'ompetition fori said Indlustry be
amendedl so as to pe~rmit. thep avenrgingr of houlrs' per' week over a
period of one year from the effective cdate in~itend- of ov\er each six
months' per~iodl fromn the effective date.
The reason for requlestingg this ameltndmnlrl t is that du~e to. thle recent
change in the ('Code for the Auitomobile nlanufacturiing Industryl_
whereby the members o-f that Industry arec allowed to, average h~ours'
over a period of one y~ear, the automoncbile malnulfacturerse are:I able to
work the mlaximumnl hours per weeki dluringr the pea~k prlod.uctfion
period while the autom~otive parts mainurfuitrturer wh~o supply a
large proportion of thne ~a rts for automo~bile~ prod:uc-t io~, ar~e feed~~
at the present timne with the necessity of r~edu~c~ing the houlrsl of eml-
ploymenrlt p~er week( in order to ar~riv~e at. the ave'rage permllittedl under
the Coder for the six months' p~eriodc endling May~ 183, 1934~.
In order to comiply with the provijsions o~f ther Cod~ie as nowF writtenl,
the par~ts ma~nlufac~turers are fac~ed~ with~ the altelrna~tivc o~f working
uip to t~he maxnimnum of 48 hours per week permiiitted byr thne Cod,(e until
approximately April 10, 19341, at which timie they' wourlld ha\e to lay
off their me~n in order to stay within thle averaging prlovisiorn o-f the
Codle or drastically reduce the hours per wek immllediately for the
balance of thle period. In either ense they woull be uinable' to main-
tain the necessary production of par~ts for automlobile produrcti~nn
which. in turn, would make it imiporsible for thc nuternobJilel mnnii-
facturers to mnaintain production sch~edules..
Owing to the close proximity of automotive p~arts planrts and~
automobile plants, the parts mlanufactulrers have b~een fuied~ for sev-
eral weeks with the problems of r~etaining their skilledl workersY whlo,
aware of the ability of the automobile malnulf neturerels to work a
greater number of hours per week during the p~eak p>eriod,. have in
large numbers been leavling the parts plants andt going to work in
automobile plants. I am advisedl that in one cn e this tulrn-over has
been at, times as highz as 100 men per day.
I have been adlvisedl that a survey, which~ is poenticlly comlplt~eted
shows that. there are, at the present time, more emplloyees in theo
Automotive Parts and Equipmlent. Manufacturing Inldustry) than in
the peak period of 1929 and that thie average hour~ly rate is at least
equal to that of 1929.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to mre having foundl
as herein set forth andi on t~he basis of all the proceedlings in thnis
ma tter ;
I find that:
(a) Compliance with the Code as now written on the part of
the automotive parts manufacturers would result in a drastic cur-
tailmenit of production.
(b) Such curtailment would result in similar curtailment of
production in the automobile Industry.
(c) The Automotive Parts and Equipment Mlanufactuiring Indus-
try has effectuated the purposes of t~he National Industrial Recovery
Act, employment being greater than that of 1929 and average hourly
rates of pay being at least equal to those of 1929.
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this application.
