NATIONAL INDUSTRIAL RECOVERY BOARD,
By W. A. HARRIMAN, Administrative Officer.
PRENTISS L. COONLEY,
Acting Division Administrator.
: WASHINGTON, D. C.,
November 24, 1934.
REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White Houze.
SmR: This is a report on an amendment of the Code of Fair Com-
petition for the Cotton Cloth Glove Manufacturing Industry.
Article IV, Section 1 (a) was amended by increasing the hourly
wage rate for glove cutters from forty (40) cents per hour to forty-
five (45) cents per hour.
A Public Hearing, of which due notice was given all interested
parties, was held September 5, 1934, on minimum piece-work rates,
submitted by the Code Authority for the Industry pursuant to para-
graph II, Section 4 of Article IV, of the Code as approved by you
December 30, 1934. These piece-work rates were for the purpose of
making an equitable adjustment of wages for all productive labor.
Among these piece-work rates was a provision for the hourly in-
crease of wage rates for glove cutters which was submitted with a
statement that "the operation of glove cutting was not uniform
throughout all factories, some cutting piece work and some day work,
and it is the opinion of the Committee" (of the Code Authority)
"that it would be impracticable to establish piece-work rates for this
operation which would be workable at all plants without placing
undue hardship on some other manufacturers."
The N. R. A. Legal Division representative, attending the Hearing,
pointed out that since the hourly increase would change a provision
already written in the Code as approved, it would be necessary to con-
sider it as an amendment to the Code and not as a part of the mini-
mum piece-work rates.
In accordance with the suggestion of the Legal Division, this
amendment was approved by a Show-Cause Order, allowing twenty
days in which any interested parties might object prior to the effec-
tive date of the amendment. However, this amendment was discussed
at the Public Hearing held on the minimum piece-work rates and no
objections, either written or oral, were made.
Since the date of the Public Hearing, and before the date of ap-
proval of the amendment, the Industrial Advisory Board, Consumers
Advisory Board, Labor Advisory Board, Research and Planning Di-
vision and the Legal Division of the National Recovery Administra-
tion made reports on the amendment and all such reports have been
carefully considered by the National Industrial Recovery Board.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to the National In-
dustrial Recovery Board on said amendment to said Code having
found as herein set forth and on the basis of all proceedings in this
We find that:
(a) The amendment to said Code and the Code as amended are
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of the
National Industrial Recovery Act, including the removal of obstruc-
tions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which tend
to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the general wel-
fare by promoting the organization of industry for the purpose of
cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and maintaining
united action of labor and management under adequate governmental
sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competitive prac-
tices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the present pro-
ductive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restriction of
production (except as may be temporarily required), by increasing
the consumption of industrial and agricultural products through in-
creasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving unemployment,
by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitating
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limita-
tion Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said amendments on behalf of the Industry as a whole.
(d) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed to
and will not operate to discriminate against them.
(f) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process will not
have been deprived of the right to be heard prior to the effective
date of said amendment.
For the above reasons this amendment has been approved.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
