NOVEMBER 31 1933.
The PRESIDENT,
The Wh'ite House.
SIn: The proposed Code of Fair Competition for the M~otor Fire
Apparatus MIanufa~cturers Industry was submitted to the Adminis-
trator on October 10th, 1933, by the Mlotor Fire Apparatus Manu-
facturers Association, representing approximately 70%i~ of the numn-
ber of manufacturers engaged in the industry, and 90%b or more
of the dollar volume of the industry. The Hearing was conducted
in WVashington, on October 24, 1933, and the Code was revised during
the recess of this hearing and was submitted in its present form for
approval. All persons who requested an appearance were properly
heard in compliance. with statutory and regulatory .requirements.
Fire apparatus manufactured by this industry is Individual and
built to specifications; the market for the products manufactured
by the. industry is limited to municipalities, divisions of State or
Federal Government, and large manufacturers, maintaining inde-
pendent fire protection.
The Industry has suffered a tremendous decrease (approximately
70%,) in its sales during the past four years. The capital invested
in the Industry has been seriously depleted. The equipment of its
principal purchasers, namely mIusIic~ipa~ities, is comparatively mod-
ern. Throughout this period, however, the wages of its employees
have been steadily maintained, and the extremely high average hour-
ly rate of approximately 72 cents bespeaks the fairness of the
members during the depression period.
The number of employees has only decreased in the same period
approximately 50%~. With the provision of a maximum week of
35 hours and the possibility of credit extensions through possible
Governmental loans to its limited consumer market, it is estimated
that a 25%~ increase in wages and an additional 10% increase in
emnploymnent will result..
ARTICLE I. Plrp)oses.
ARTICLE 11. Definitions.
ARTICLE III. Provides a maximum week of 35 hours with a toler-
ance of 3C9i for all employees except watchmen, outside salesmen,
and dlelivery engineers and employees en''aged~ in a managerial or
executive espncity earning in excess of $35.00 p~er w~eek. Employees
engaged solely in maintenance. and repair work, engineers, furnace
firemlen, and janitors are limited to 40 hours per w~eek.
ARTICLE IV.~ Establishes a mlinimumn rate p~er hour of 40 cents
and a minimum rate for all employees of $14.00( aind provides for
full adjustments in all pay sched~ules.
ARTICLE Y~. PFOVildes DO peiSOni under 16 years of age miay be em-
ployed. No one under 18 yepar of age may be employed in a hazard-n
ous occupation. Prohibition of reclassification.








AnnanL VI. Provides for a code authoritytcoisoffvin-
viduals representing the industry and two additi onals nonvotring me-
bers may be appointed by the Administrator.
ARTIOLE VII. Provides the fair trade practices of the industry.
ARTICLE VIII. Provides a merchandising p~lan.
ARTICLE IX. 1\fodifications.
ARTICLE X. Monopolies.
ARTICLE XI. Provides for filing with association of changes in
price.
ARTICLE XIIT. General.
ARTICLE XIII. Effect~ive date.

FINDINGS

The Administrator finds:
A. This Code complies in all respects with the pertinent ph~rases
of title I of the act including without limlitation subsection A of
section 7 and subsection B~ of section 10) thereof.
B. The Mlotor Fire Apparatus 10aniufactur~ers Association is truly
representative of the 1\lotor Fire Appara~tus Maniufacturers Indus-
try a.nd the bylaws of this association contains no inequitable restric-
tions on memberships,.
C. The code is not designed to promote monopolies or to eliminate
or oppress small enterprises and w~ill not operate to discriminate
against then and will tend to effectuate the policy of title I of the
National Recovery Act.
It is rec~ommlendled, therefore, that this code be approved.
Respectfully,
HUan S. JOHNSON,
A dminiistrantor.
