SmR: This is a report upon an amendment (number I) proposed
to the Code of Fair Competition approved for the Cast Iron Soil
Pipe Industry in the United States, and on the hearing conducted
thereon in Washington, D.C., on October 23, 1933, in accordance with
the provisions of the National Industrial Recovery Act.
nisand OF THIS AMENDMENT AS TO WAGEB AND HOURS
This amendment qualifies the exemption provided for executive
officers and their supervisory staffs by providing that such exemption
shall apply only to those earning $35.00 or more per week, and pro-
vides for certain classes of employees who were not specifically cov-
ered in the Code as originally drawn, as follows:
The Code of Fair Competition for the Cast Iron Soil Pipe Indus-
try was signed on September 7, 1933. Since its consideration the
development of codes has shown the desirabilityv of making special
provision for the classes of workers named in the amendment and
the need for such provision in this Industry. It is believed that the
amendment will prev-ent improper interpretations by clarification
of S~e~ctions 3 and 4l of the Code.
The limitation on the number of learners and superannuated em-
ployees and the establishment of minimum wages for them, and of
maximum workingr hours for watchmen and shippingr crews, will
plrevent. misulnderstandingc and resultant discrimination and result in
increased stabilization of labor.
I believe that the amendment to the Code is fair to Industry, and
to Labor, and within the intent and purpose of Title I of the National
Industrial Recovery Act.
Accordingly, I hereby recommend the approval of this proposed
Amendment Number I to the Code of Fair Competition for the Cast
Iron Soil Pipe Industry approved September 7, 1933.
