The Code of Fair Competition for the Silk Textile Industry shall i
be amended by adding at the end thereof, as Article XIII, their
XIII (1) The Textile Labor Relations Board shall appoint & .:!
Silk Textile Work Assignment.Board, to be composed of an imrpar-.
tial chairman, one representative of the employers subject to tohe 1i|
Code of Fair Competition for the Silk Textile Industry, aid one i
representative of the employees in that Industry. .
"(2) In order to provide opportunity to develop a sound method.i
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 tit ';
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 noti
be increased where the character of the raw material, yarn, construe-
tion of cloth, preparatory processes, type of equipment used, or:i
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'i j
then the work load formerly used on such product shall be the gumi',:::
in determining the proper work assignment. .i
"Where, on September 21, 1934, a new style of yarn or cloth li'
any other new type of product was in course of introduction or
thereafter during the period above referred to introduced into a i
or finishing plant, a tentative work load may be established duit

the foregoing principles.

or of any employee or employer affected, or his representative, or'
its own motion, the Silk Textile Work Assignment Board may
vestigate any work assignment which has been increased since-'

increase. If the Board finds after fair hearing such assi
requires excessive effort it may require its reduction accordingly':I

ity to issue rules and regulations and to appoint such agents H.
may select, who shall have authority to make investigations
recommendations in order to carry out the provisions of this
"(5) The Silk Textile Work Assignment Board shall, subject-!-
