CODE OF FAIR COMPETITION
FOR THE
GRAPHIC ARTS INDUSTRIES

As Approved on February 17, 1934
BY
PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT


EXECUTIVE ORDER

An application having been duly made, pursuant to and in full
compliance with the provisions of Title I of the National Industrial
Recovery Act, approved June 16, 1933 for my approval of a Code
of Fair Competition for the Graphic Arts Industries, and hearings
having been held thereon and the Administrator having rendered his
report containing an analysis of the said Code of Fair Competition
together with his recommendations and findings with respect thereto,
and the Administrator having found that the said Code of Fair
Competition complies in all respects with the pertinent provisions
of Title I of said Act and that the requirements of clauses (1) and
(2) of subsection (a) of Section 3 of the said Act have been met:
NOW, THEREFORE, I, Franklin D. Roosevelt, President of
the United States, pursuant to the authority vested in me by
Title I of the National Industrial Recovery Act, approved June 16,
1933, and otherwise, do hereby adopt and approve the report, recom-
mendations and findings of the Administrator and do order that the
said Code of Fair Competition be and it is hereby approved, subject
to the following conditions:
1. That the provisions of Section 24 of Part I of the Code be and
same are hereby deleted from the Code; and that all powers and
duties delegated in the said section to Labor Boards and/or Commit-
tees are hereby transferred to the appropriate Code Authorities and
Compliance Boards;
PROVIDED, however, that the Administrator is authorized to
appoint a National Graphic Arts Labor Board to consist of five (5)
members truly representative of employers, to be appointed by the
Administrator on nomination of the National Graphic Arts Co-
ordinating Committee, if it desires the appointment of such Board,
and five (5) members truly representative of employees in the
industry to be appointed by the Administrator on nomination of the
Labor Advisory Board of the National Recovery Administration,
if it desires the appointment of.such Board; and one (1) disin-









terested member to act as chairman. The Administrator may
appoint alternate members and the Board may designate such
regional Boards or temporary labor committees as it deems neces-
sary. Any and all disputes between employers and employees with
respect to wages, hours, and other conditions of employment may be
referred to this Board. When the dispute arises in. any industry or
group of industries as determined by the Administrator under the
Graphic Arts Code, the employer members shall be nominated from
the employers of that industry or group, and the employee members
shall be nominated from the employees in that industry or group.
2. That the maximum hours of work specified in Sections 21 (d);
Clause (c) of Paragraph A of Section 22; Clause (b) of Paragraph
B of Section 22; clause (d) of Paragraph A of Section 23, and/or
any other provisions of the Code concerning hours of work, shall
not be construed as a minimum work day or work week;
PROVIDED, that if at any time in any establishment a majority
of the mechanical employees actually employed in any trade,
expresses by written request to their employer a desire to share
available work with bona fide resident unemployed competent
mechanics in their particular trade, the number of hours of work
may be adjusted by mutual agreement, and the parties are hereby
authorized to proceed in conformity with the principles established
in clause (6) of Paragraph 2 of Section 21 (d) of the Code and to
seek the good offices of any agency established by the Code, and/or
the National Graphic Arts Labor Board hereinbefore established
by this order.
3. That the Administrator is hereby authorized to hold such fur-
ther hearings three months after the effective date hereof, as he
may prescribe, to determine whether the definitions of any of the
industries included in the Code shall be modified or eliminated,
and/or whether such industries or any of them shall continue to be
included in the Code.
4. That the provisions of this Code relating to hours, wages, and
employment, as well as full and complete copies of this Order, shall be
posted in a prominent place in the work room of each establish-
ment subject to this Code.
5. That no Trade Association or group shall be entitled to continue
to participate in the administration of the Code one month after the
effective date unless and until it shall have satisfied the Adminis-
trator that it has amended or modified its Constitution and/or By-
laws to conform to the requirements of the National Industrial Re-
covery Act and of the Code.
6. That pending the formulation of a compact or code between
the several states of the United States to insure the sale of prison-
made products on a fair competitive basis with products not so
made the provisions of Paragraph (g) of Section 26 of the Code
applicable to institutions of states or political subdivisions thereof,
be and they are hereby stayed for ninety (90) days, or further at
the discretion of the Administrator.
Approval recommended:
HUGH S. JOHNBON,
A drnistrator.









The following statement shall be published with my Executive
Order approving a Code of Fair Competition for the Graphic Arts
Industries.
I understand that there is some disagreement in the industries on
the provisions of Section 2 of my Executive Order. The terms of
the aforesaid condition were strenuously contended for by certain
members of the industries; they have been inserted. On the other
hand these terms were opposed by the Labor Advisory Board and
by certain of the groups of employees of the Graphic Arts
Industries.
In view of the disagreement concerning the application of the
condition it appears to me desirable to state here that my afore-
said condition is not to be construed or interpreted in such manner
as to conflict with Section 7 (a) of the National Industrial Recovery
Act, nor shall such condition interfere with the right of the
employees of any locality to express their desire to share regular
work with bona fide resident unemployed competent mechanics in
their particular trade or craft and to appeal to all agencies of the
Government to assist them in the exercise of this right.
FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT.
THE WHITE HOUSE,
February 17, 1934.













LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL


THE PRESIDENT,
The White House.
Sir: I submit herewith and recommend for your approval, with
the reservations noted below, a Code of Fair Competition for the
Graphic Arts Industries. This code is the most detailed and com-
plicated which has thus far been presented to the National Recov-
ery Administration. In its present form, the Code will cover nearly
fifty separate and subdivisional industries which presented their
own codes of fair competition. With two exceptions-Photo-
Engraving and Electrotyping and Stereotyping-practically every
branch of the Graphic Arts Industries which is competitive with
another branch has been brought under this basic code.
The amalgamation of the fifty odd codes into one basic code is, to
my mind, a unique achievement. The Graphic Arts Industries,
hitherto divided into, at worst, hostile, and at best, malevolently
neutral groups, will now have an opportunity to show what they
can do in respect of industrial self-government. On the manufac-
turing side of the industry, four major groups-relief printing
(with five constituent industries) ; lithographic printing; intaglio
printing (with four constituent industries); service groups (with
six constituent industries)-are under joint administrative control.
Within the provisions of the code are also seventeen product groups
which will govern themselves in respect of fair trade practices,
leaving to the industries previously mentioned, the task of adminis-
tering the code in respect of its provisions relating to labor. Be-
cause of the number of groups covered by the Code it has been im-
possible in every case to insert the minimum wage rates and the
fair trade practice provisions. The Code is complete, however, so
far as the major portions of the Graphic Arts Industries are con-
cerned, and machinery is provided to fill in the gaps of the Code
with no further delay.
IMPORTANCE OF THE INDUSTRY

Only four other industries exceed the Graphic Arts Industries in
the value added to the product by manufacturing. This value in
normal times is $2,400,000,000 annually. The statistics for the
Graphic Arts Industries are difficult to break down. The wage bill
of the industries is in excess of $300,000,000 annually; there are over
300,000 employees and the periodicals which are published have an
annual circulation of approximately 180,000,000 copies. These fig-
ures, chosen almost at random, show the major character of the in-
dustry and indicate what an achievement it will be if the industrial
self-government, of which I have spoken, proves to be successful as
the industry confidently hopes. Further statistics appear in the sev-
eral reports of the Division of Research and Planning.









In respect of industrial self-government the Code is excellent. So
far as the hours and wage provisions are concerned, however, the
Code is by no means so admirable. The reasons for this are dealt
with at some length in the report which Deputy Administrator
Lindsay Rogers has made to me and which I append to this letter
as an appendix.
SETTLEMENT OF LABOR DISPUTES

The Labor Advisory Board objects strenuously to the setup of the
National Labor Boards. So long as these provisions remain in the
Code, the Labor Advisory Board will withhold its approval. The
specific provisions particularly objected to are the requirement that
the Administrator shall nominate to the Board groups 'to be equally
and truly representative of the two leading types of employer-em-
ployee relationships and the minute circumscription of the powers
of the Board so that employers have easier access to it than have em-
ployees. The Labor Advisory Board recommends that these sec-
tions be stricken from the Code. The Deputy Administrator ap-
proves. I concur in their recommendation and suggest that your
order of approval set up a National Labor Board and offer its good
offices to the industry for the settlement of all disputes.
HoRns

The Code provides for a standard work week of forty hours.
This will, in many sections of the country, mean a reduction of the
maximum work week now prevailing but the forty hours are in
excess of the hours now being worked in many sections of the
country. Unemployment in this industry is extremely acute, as
the reports from the Division of Research and Planning clearly
set forth. It is desirable that the available employment be spread
so far as possible without undue hardship to either employers or
employees. One method of doing this has been agreed to by the
American Newspaper Publishers' Association and appears in the
Code for the Daily Newspaper Publishing Business. The present
Graphic Arts Code contains substantially identical provisions as
applying to the daily newspapers which, by reason of their mem-
bership in the National Editorial Association, may come under the
present Code. There seems to me to be no reason why other
branches of the printing industry under the Graphic Arts Code,
if they so desire, should not use the same method of sharing the
work and I recommend that appropriate provision for this be made
in your Order of Approval.

OTHER CONDITIONS OF APPROVAL
I recommend specifically that the Order of Approval make two
other stipulations:
(1) The Code omits the provision to be found in many codes re-
quiring employers to post in their plants the provisions on hours
and wages. It seems to me particularly important that this be done
in the present case because of the very complexity of these provisions.
(2) The coordination of nearly fifty codes into one basic code is









frankly experimental. As I have said above, two industries which
are properly part of the Graphic Arts-Photo-Engraving and Elec-
trotyping and Stereotyping-have been left out and I am recom-
mending that in respect of the basic Code and in respect of these two
separate codes, the Orders of Approval stipulate that the separate-
ness of jurisdiction is to continue for three months and then is to be
reconsidered. This does not mean that at the end of three months
any changes of the Code will be proposed. It simply means that at
the end of three months Photo-Engraving and Electrotyping and
Stereotyping may be put under the basic code or that, conversely,
certain subdivisional industries now under the basic code may be
given a separate status.
FINDINGS
The Administrator finds that:
(a) The Code complies in all respects with the pertinent provi-
sions of Title I of the Act, including without limitation subsec-
tion (a) of Section 7 and subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof;
and that
(b) The proposing associations impose no inequitable restrictions
on admission to membership therein and are truly representative of
the Graphic Arts Industries; and that
(c) The Code is not designed to promote monopolies or to elimi-
nate or oppress small enterprises and will not operate to discrimi-
nate against them, and will tend to effectuate the policy of Title I
of the National Industrial Recovery Act.
I recommend that the Code be approved, with the conditions in
the order of approval as specified above.
Respectfully,
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
Administrator.

Definitions of the several Industries, and the National Code
Authorities by which they shall be administered, are set forth in
Schedule A, hereto attached, and hereby made a part hereof.
See par. 5 of Executive Order approving this Code.









(b) Provisions of this Code basically applicable to all establish-
ments within the Graphic Arts Industries are contained in the main
body of the Code, exceptions which are applicable only to certain
Industries being made to such provisions.
(c) Provisions of this Code applicable only to establishments
within a particular Industry or members of a particular National
Product Group are contained in appendices hereto attached, and
are hereby made a part hereof with the same effect as if the pro-
visions therein contained were set out in the main body of the Code.
(d) Where the nature of the business in which an establishment
is engaged, or the product or products it produces, might under the
definitions set forth in Schedule A subject such an establishment
to administration under two or more National Code Authorities,
the largest annual sales volume of such an establishment's product
shall determine under which National Code Authority such an
establishment is subject to administration;
Provided, however, that it shall be the duty of such National Code
Authority to enforce all the provisions of this Code regulating or
affecting establishments which might be so subject to administration
under one or more other National Code Authorities. In any such
case an establishment shall be subject to assessment (for code ad-
ministration purposes) by only one National Code Authority;
Provided, further, that an establishment that might, as above de-
scribed, be so subject to administration under two or more National
Code Authorities, may, if it desires, upon agreement by the different
National Code Authorities concerned, be deemed to be subject to the
administration of the two or more National Code Authorities and in
any such latter case it shall be given equitable representation on each
such National Code Authority, and bear its equitable share of the
costs of administering this Code by each such National Code Au-
thority, the share as between National Code Authorities being de-
termined by agreement of the National Code Authorities concerned,
and so assessed as to prevent duplication of assessment. Each
National Code Authority shall adopt any necessary provisions to
make this paragraph effective.

ing. In case of any such disqualification, the body designating such
member shall be entitled to designate a substitute to sit as a mem-
ber of such governing body temporarily during the consideration
and determination of any such proceeding.
SECTION 3-NATIONAL AND REGIONAL CODE AUTHORITIES
(a) There shall be designated for each Industry subject to this
Code and which is listed in Section 2 hereof an administrative body
which shall act as National Code Authority for the Industry.
(b) It shall be the function and duty of each National Code
Authority to administer all of the provisions of the Code relating to
its Industry, except as otherwise specifically in this Code provided;
and all powers, authority, and duties relating to the administration








and enforcement of this Code, except to the extent that they have
been by the provisions hereof otherwise conferred and imposed, are
reserved to the National Code Authorities. In such enforcement a
National Code Authority may interpret the provisions hereof and
the same shall be binding upon all parties unless and until reviewed
and changed on appeal; provided, that a National Code Authority
shall, within its jurisdiction, enforce, observe and give due effect
to the decisions of the Graphic Arts National Labor Boards.
The autonomy of the respective National Code Authorities, except
as limited by the provisions of this Code, shall not be infringed nor
curtailed.
(c) Each National Code Authority may designate the local organ-
ization in each region, whether now existing or to be organized,
within the Industry, which shall administer this Code locally; and
the National Code Authority may delegate to any such designated
local organization, to be known as a Regional Code Authority, such
of its duties as it may find advisable, except such as it is prohibited
from delegating. The duties of such Regional Code Authority and
its powers to incur assessable expenses shall be those prescribed by
its National Code Authority. Appeals from any decision, ruling,
regulation, order or finding of a Regional Code Authority shall lie to
its National Code Authority.
Where the necessity for economy and coordination of administra-
tion seems to require some form of regional cooperative operation of
two or more Regional Code Authorities, any such joint cooperative
regional organization may be formed with the permission of the
respective National Code Authorities concerned and may carry out
the code administration functions delegated to it. The expenses of
such joint cooperative regional organization shall be apportioned as
between Industries and assessed in such manner as the Regional Code
Authorities may agree and determine. Appeals from any decision,
ruling, regulation, order, or finding of such joint cooperative re-
gional organization shall lie to the National Code Authority to whose
jurisdiction the appellant is subject. Any such joint cooperative
regional organization, if formed, may provide procedure for the
arbitration of disputes between establishments under its jurisdiction
when such procedure has been agreed to by the establishments con-
cerned.
(d) Each National Code Authority shall cooperate with the
National Product Groups in the administering and enforcement of
trade practice and other provisions of this Code, and shall develop
the methods necessary to accomplish this result. It shall be the
duty of each National Code Authority to enforce all the provisions
of this Code regulating or affecting establishments within its juris-
diction which are not members of a particular National Product
Group but which produce the product or products with which such
National Product Group is identified.
(e) Each National Code Authority shall be responsible for the
payment of its share of the expense of administering this Code, and
shall have the power to collect the amount of its share of said









expenses from the establishments within its jurisdiction by assess-
ment in such proper and equitable manner as it may determine.
The share of each National Code Authority of said expenses shall
include the total operating expenses, both national and regional,
of its own organization and its share, as apportioned by the pro-
visions of Sections 4 and 5, of the operating expenses of the National
Graphic Arts Coordinating Committee and of its National and
Regional Compliance Boards, and its share, as allocated under the
provisions of Section 24, of the expenses of the Graphic Arts Labor
Boards and Temporary Labor Committees with which it is
concerned.
(f) Each National Code Authority shall have the power to require
any establishment within its jurisdiction to submit, through a confi-
dential agency designated by the National Code Authority, any
statistics, data, or information reasonably necessary to enable it
to prescribe accounting methods, cost finding methods, or cost de-
termination schedules, or to supply the National Graphic Arts

Exception 1: An establishment whose gross business (not includ-
ing circulation and advertising receipts of newspapers and periodi-
cals) is under $100,000 per year, located in a place of less than
25,000 population, which might otherwise come under Class 2, may
obtain a terminable permit from its National (ode Authority to









come under Class 1 if and so long as that part of such gross business
which originates in places of more than 25,000 population and/or
with firms whose headquarters are in such places (hereinafter re-
ferred to as foreign business) was less than $6,000 for the preceding
quarter of the calendar year-under the following conditions:
(1) A terminable permit shall be issued upon the filing of a sworn
application stating that the applicant's foreign business for the last
preceding quarter of the calendar year was less than $6,000 (listing
the items comprising the same).
(2) Such permit shall continue for successive quarters upon its
filing reports with corresponding information within 15 days after
the expiration of each quarter.
(3) A permit shall expire 15 days after the expiration of a quarter
upon the permitted's failure to file a report thereon, or upon such
report showing over $6,000 of foreign business in the preceding
quarter of the calendar year.
(4) The National Code Authority may revoke a permit and/or
refuse further permits to any establishment which it finds to have
made a materially false statement hereunder.
Exception 2: In establishments located in places of less than
10,000 population (1930 Census) which had gross receipts of $12,000
or less in the preceding calendar year from job and contract printing
(not including circulation and advertising receipts of newspapers
and periodicals), the requirements of Paragraphs 1 and 2 shall not
apply; but mechanical employees shall receive not less than eighty
(80) per cent of the minima set forth in Column 1 of the fore-
going schedule; provided, however, that when an employee in such
an establishment performs tasks coming within several of the classi-
fications set forth in Paragraph 1, his minimum hourly rate of com-
pensation shall be determined by averaging the minimum rates for
such various classifications.
PARAGRAPH 2. Each establishment, with the exception of those-
(1) Which are operating under wage agreements arrived at
by collective bargaining; and
(2) Those which are paying not less than the wage rates
which they were paying on July 15, 1929,
shall make increases in its average hourly compensation for all
classes of skilled labor, within 30 days after this Code becomes
effective, on the following basis:
Including increases made under Paragraph 1 of this Section
each plant shall increase the hourly rates to a point where (in-
cluding increases made since July 1, 1933) they are 10 per cent
higher than the hourly rates in effect on July 1, 1933, with this
limitation, that they need not increase rates above those paid on
July 15, 1929, in the same plant, or above those paid in similar
plants in the same locality coming within the above clauses (1)
or (2).
PARAGRAPII 3. Within 30 days after this Code becomes effective
any rate increases under Paragraphs 1 and 2 must be further aug-
mented, if necessary, to bring the average hourly compensation paid
in each establishment up to 90 per cent of the hourly rates prevail-
ing on July 1, 1933, in the same locality, for those base classes of
skilled labor named in the schedule set forth in Paragraph 1 hereof.









Prevailing rates shall be the average of the hourly rates paid to
the employees constituting that 50 per cent of each class of skilled
employees coming under this Code in that locality which was re-
ceiving the higher hourly wage rates on July 1, 1933. For example,
if in a locality of Class 1, a total of thirty comnlpositors were em-
ployed, ten of whom were receiving 82 cents per hour and twenty
of whom were receiving 67 cents per hour, the prevailing rate would
be the weighted average of 82 cents for ten compo-itors and of 67
cents for five compositors (making together 50 per cent of the total
number) or 77 cents, and 90 per cent thereof would be 69.3 cents.
It is provided, however, that in a locality where one establishment
employs 50 per cent or more of the total skilled employee.- of a
particular class in that locality, and the rate paid by said estab-
lishment is higher than the average rate paid by the other estab-
lishments in that locality, the employees of that class in said es-
tablishment so employing 50 per cent or more of that class shall be
omitted in computing the average hourly wage rates for that locality.
[NOTE.-For the purposes of Paragraphs 2 and 3 "Averaire ", in case varying
,ates are paid for the same classitication of laulor, means average ;scertained
by dividing the total of hourly compensations hy tlh total numlier ft' employees
whose wage rates are being averaged.]
PARAGRAPH 4. In applying the foregoing paragraphs. differentials
in wage rates from basic rates for varying tasks within the same
class shall be maintained as in effect December 1, 1933, in the
individual establishments.
PARAGRAPH 5. In no instance shall the foregoing be applied in a
manner to reduce the present hourly rate paid to any class of em-
ployees, or to establish minimum wage rates in establishments where
collective bargaining is not practiced higher than the minimum for
the same class of employees in establishments in that locality where
wage rates were arrived at through collective bargaining.
PARAGRAPH 6. It should be specifically understood that the fore-
going provisions are intended to establish only minimum and not
maximum wage requirements.
(c) General wage prov'i'ions.-In connection with the foregoing,
the following rules shall apply:
(1) No establishment shall pay to any employee coinig
within any of the classifications enumerated in the schedule in
(b) Paragraph 1 an hourly rate lower than the minimum estab-
lished for unskilled mechanical employees in that locality by this
Section.
(2) Except as provided in Exception 2 of Paagrgaph 1 an
employee performing duties coming within more than one of the
classifications in the foregoing schedule shall be compensated on
the basis of the rates applying to such several classifications for
the time employed.
(3) The foregoing requirements as to mechanical wage- do
not apply to apprentices, who are referred to in (e) of this
Section.
(4) In establishments where newspapers are printed the pro-
visions of clause (b) and the preceding subclauses of (c) of
Section 21 need not apply for skilled mechanics while engaged

in the production of newspapers; provided, that in such etab-
lishments the minimum wage rate for such mechanics shall be 40
cents per hour, and provided further, that the differentials exist-
ing December 1, 1933, in the hourly wage rates of such employees
shall be maintained.
(d) Hours of labor-1. Standard working hours.-Standard wvrk-
ing hours shall be 40 hours per week for all mechanical employees,
including proprietors, supervisors, foremen and/or others for. the
time actually engaged in mechanical work. The work week in the
case of each individual employee shall be divided into not more than
six shifts, no one of which will be more than 8 hours unless overtiime
be paid. When necessary, overtime shall be permitted; provided (1)
that a mechanical employee shall receive not less than the local over-
time rate (one and one-third times or one and one-half times his
hourly wage) for all work in excess of 8 hours within any 24-hour
period; and (2) that no more than 520 hours shall be worked by
any mechanical employee in any 13 weeks period.
It is not intended that any of the foregoing provisions shall limit
the number of days per week or shifts per day an establishment may
operate.3
2. Ma.irm um. hour exceptions.-(1) The maximum hours fixed by
this Section shall not apply to professional persons employed in their
profession, technical employees, or employees on emergency main-
tenance, or repair work, nor to employees in cases where the restric-
tion of hours of highly skilled artistic or mechanical workers on
continuous processes would unavoidably reduce production; but in
the case of such a highly skilled artistic or mechanical worker the
local overtime rate (one and one-third times or one and one-half
times his hourly wage) shall be paid for the hours worked in excess
of the maximum.
(2) A tolerance of 10 per cent, without overtime pay, over the maxi-
mum hours herein prescribed, shall be allowed in the cases of wash-
up crews, shipping crews, material handlers, elevator operators, and
other mechanical employees whose duties have no direct connection
with Graphic Arts processes, and a tolerance of 20 per cent without
overtime pay shall be allowed in the cases of outside delivery men,
porters, engineers, firemen, janitors and watchmen. The maximum
of six shifts per week shall not apply to engineers, firemen, janitors
or watchmen.
A toleren'e of 10 per cent, without overtime pay, shall also be al-
lowed establishments engaged in the service of library binding, such
tolerance to be averaged over six months' periods, provided no em-
ployee shall lie allowed to work over 48 hours in any one week.
(3) In establishments having periods of regular variations or sea-
sonal swells rising from the publication of newspapers (other than
cdilics) or t11( production of special editions, employees may work
more than eight hours in any one day without overtime pay.
(4) In est:ablishnints where a daily newspaper is printed, in
cities or townis whi-rt t(ire aire no available surplus mechanics com-
petent for the (a.ks to be performed, employers may work their ine-
cihanicirl m ploIiyees more tialn eight hoilus per dayi during periods of

special editions, provided that time and one-third shall be paid for
all Work in excess of eight hours per day.
(5') In establishments in Industry A-5 of this Code where news-
papers are printed, the maximum unit of hours to constitute a day's
or night's work for mechanical employees engaged in the production
of newspapers shall be S continuous hours, exclusive of lunch time.
The foregoing maximum hours of work .shall not be construed as
a minimum either for a day or a week, and if at any time in any
locality newspaper mechanics of a given trade, through their chosen
representatives, express by written request to the employer or
employers a desire to share available work with bona fide resident
unemployed competent newspaper mechanics in their particular
trade or craft, the number of hours of work may be adjusted by
mutual agreement.
If local agreement proves impossible within 15 days, the question
may be appealed by either party to a local Fact Finding Board made
up of two representatives of the employer or employers and two
representatives of the employees.
The local Board as thus formed shall endeavor to agree upon1 the
facts with regard to the number of resident unemployed competent
newspaper mechanics in the locality for the purpose of reducing the
number of such unemployed newspaper mechanics so far as is pos-
sible without undue hardship to either the employer or employers or
his or their employees.
If a majority agreement cannot be arrived at, the four members
shall choose a fifth and impartial member of the Board who shall
act as chairman.
The Board shall proceed diligently to complete its findings of fact
and make its recommendations.
Should either the employer or employers or his or their employees
disagree with the findings and recommendations of the local Fact
Finding Board, appeal may be made to the National Relief Printing
Labor Board provided for in this Code, which, after notice and
opportunity for the parties to be heard, shall make a finding which
shall be binding upon all parties of interest.
These provisions as to sharing of work shall not apply to any
newspaper having ten or less journeymen mechanical department
employees.
If in any locality there are not available competent journeymen
newspaper mechanics to permit the operation of any newspaper in
such locality on a 40 hour week, then the work week may be ex-
tended to not more than six times the maximum unit of hours here-
inbefore set forth as constituting a normal day's or night's work,
without overtime; provided that in any locality where less than 8
hours normally constitutes a day's or night's work, then the work
week may not be extended beyond six times that unit of hours
unless overtime be paid.
An employer may divide an employee's work week into as many
as six shifts, each of such length, not exceeding 8 hours, as the
employer may determine, and shall have the right to designate the
shifts, schedule of hours, and starting time of each employee. Over-
time shall be worked when necessary.









(6) In establishments in Industry A-2 of this Code where'i ews-
papers are printed, the maximum unit of hours to constitute a day's
or night's work for mechanical employees engaged in the produc-
tion of newspapers shall be 8 continuous hours, exclusive of'lunch
time.
The foregoing maximum hours of work shall not be construed as
a minimum either for a day or a week, and if at any time in any
establishment a majority of the newspaper mechanics of a given
trade express by written request to the employer a desire to share
available work with bona fide resident unemployed competent news-
paper mechanics in their particular trade or craft, the number of
hours of work may be adjusted by mutual agreement.
If local agreement proves impossible within 15 days, the question
may be appealed by either party to a local Fact Fninding Board made
up of two representatives of the employer and two representatives
of the employees.
The local Board as thus formed shall endeavor to agree upon the
facts with regard to the number of resident unemployed competent
newspaper mechanics in the locality for the purpose of reducing the
number of such unemployed newspaper mechanics so far as is pos-
sible without undue hardship to either the employer or his employees.
If a majority agreement cannot be arrived at, the four members
shall choose a fifth and impartial member of the Board who shall

findings and recommendations of the local Fact Finding Board,
appeal may be made to the National Relief Printing Labor Board
provided for in this Code, which, after notice and opportunity for
the parties to be heard, shall make a finding which shall be binding
upon all parties of interest.
These provisions as to sharing of work shall not apply to any
newspaper having ten or less journeymen mechanical department
employees.
If in any locality there are not available competent journeymen
newspaper mechanics to permit the operation of any newspaper in
such locality on a 40 hour week, then the work week may be extended
to not more than six times the maximum unit of hours hereinbefore
set forth as constituting a normal day's or night's work, without
overtime; provided that in any locality where less than 8 hours
normally constitutes a day's or niglit's work, then the work week
may not be extended beyond six times that unit of hours unless
overtime be paid.
An employer may divide an employee's work week into as many
as six shifts, each of such length, not exceeding 8 hours, as the em-
plvyer may determine, and shall have the right to designate the

than 40 cents per hour, in which latter case establishments shall not
pay less than such hourly rate on July 15, 1929, and in no event less
than 30 cents per hour.
(b) Skilled mccha.ical employees-AMinimum wages.-(1) Each
establishment which operated on July 1, 1933, on a basic work week of
40 hours or more shall put into effect, as of the effective date of this
Code, hourly rates for all its skilled mechanical employees at least
10% higher than were the hourly rates in effect on July 1, 1933; pro-
vided, that no such hourly rate shall be less than the minimum hourly
rate established by this Sub-Section 22-A for unskilled mechanical
employees, and provided further, that no establishment shall be re-
quired under this paragraph to pay any employee a weekly wage
for 40 hours greater than the weekly wage paid for the same class
of work for the basic work week in operation in such establishment
on July 1, 1929.









(2) If. after the increase in hourly rate provided for in the pre-

ment to any skilled mechanical employee is less than 90% of the pre-
vailing hourly rate on July 1, 1933, the hourly rate of such employee
within 30 days from the effective date of this Code shall be increased
to not less than 90% of such prevailing hourly rate. For thd pur-
pose of this paragraph, prevailing hourly rate is defined to-be the
average rate paid that class of skilled mechanical employees by a

bor Board, hereinafter provided for, promptly after its organization
shall appoint a committee composed of an equal number of repre-
sentatives of employers and employees to study carefully the ap-
prenticeship situation and to make recommendations thereon to the
National Lithographic Code Authority. In making its study the
committee shall not limit itself to existing data and information but
shall secure through the National Code Authority from establish-
ments within the Industry such additional facts as it may deem
necessary. Its recommendations shall include apprenticeship ratios
and methods of applying them equitably for the Industry. Upon
receipt of the recommendations of the committee, the National Lith-
ographic Printing Code Authority shall adopt rules and regulations

SECTION 23
MECHANICAL EMPLOYEES (continued)
A. ENfAl;ED IN TnrH PROCESS OF GRAVUnm INTAGLIO PRINTING
The provisions of this Sub-Section 23A shall govern all establish-
lmeint eng(iged in any of the processes or partial processes of gravure
printing and shall be applicable to all the mechanical employees of
such c.stablishments engaged in carrying on any of the operations of
such processes.
I S'e par. 2 of Executive order approving this Code.









(a) Unskilled mechanical employcs-mi;nn i u wages.-Estab-
lishments covered by this Sub-Section 23A shall not pay any un-
skilled mechanical employee less than 40 cents per hour, unless, on
July 15, 1929, the hourly rate for the same class of work was less
than 40 cents per hour, in which latter case they shall be paid not
less than such hourly rate on July 15, 1929, in the same establish-
ment (or in the same locality in the case of a new establishment)
and in no event less than 30 cents per hour.
(b) Skilled mechanical employees-minimum wages.-PARA-
GRAPH 1. Minimum hourly compensation for various classes of
I skilled workers and/or artisans shall be established for establish-
ments coming under this Sub-Section 23A, as follows:
Rotogravure Pressmen----------------------------_ $0.91
SRotogravure Assistants (or brakemen) -------------- .55
Photo-Engravers ----------------------------- 1.00
PARAGRAPH 2. Each establishment, with the exception of those-
(1) Which are operating under wage agreements arrived at
by collective bargaining; and
(2) Those which are paying not less than the wage rates which
they were paying on July 15, 1929,
shall make increases in its average hourly compensation for all classes
of skilled labor, within 30 days after this Code becomes effective, on
the following basis:
Including increases made under Paragraph 1 of this Sub-Section
23A each plant shall increase the hourly rates to a point where (in-
cluding increases made since July 1, 1922) they are 10 per cent higher
than the hourly rates in effect on July 1, 1933, with this limitation,
that they need not increase rates above those paid on July 15, 1929,
in the same plant, or above those paid in similar plants in the same
locality coming within the above clauses (1) or (2).
PARAGRAPH 3. Within 30 days after this Code becomes effective any
rate increases under Paragraphs 1 and 2 must be further augmented,
if necessary, to bring the average hourly compensation paid in each
establishment up to 90 per cent of the hourly rates prevailing on
July 1, 1933, in the same locality, for those base classes of skilled
labor named in the schedule set forth in Paragraph 1 hereof.
Prevailing rates shall be the average of the hourly rates paid to
the employees constituting that 50 per cent of each class of skilled
employees coming under this Code in that locality which was re-
ceiving the higher hourly wage rates on July 1, 1933. For example,
if in a locality a total of thirty rotogravure pressmen were employed,
ten of whom were receiving 96 cents per hour and twenty of whom
were receiving 90 cents per hour, the prevailing rate would be the
weighted average of 96 cents for ten pressmen and of 90 cents for
five pressmen (making together 50 per cent of the total number) or
94 cents, and 90 per cent thereof would be 84.6 cents.
[NOTE.-For the purposes of Paragraphs 2 and 3 "Average," in case varying
rates are paid for the same classification of labor, means average ascertained
by dividing the total of hourly compensations by the total number of employees
whose wage rates are being averaged.]
PARAGRAPH 4. In applying the foregoing paragraphs, differentials
in wage rates from basic rates for varying tasks within the same class









shall be maintained as in effect December 1, 1933, in the individual
establishments.
PARAGRAPH 5. In no instance shall the foregoing be applied in a
manner to reduce the present hourly rate paid to any class of em-
ployees, or to establish minimum wage rates in establishments where
collective bargaining is not practiced higher than the minimum
for the same class of employees in establishments in that locality
where wage rates were arrived at through collective bargaining.
PARAGRAPH 6. It should be specifically understood that the fore-
going provisions are intended to establish only minimum and not
maximum wage requirements.
(c) General wage provisions.-In connection with the foregoing,
the following rules shall apply:
(1) No establishment shall pay to any employee coming
within any of the classifications enumerated in the schedule
in (b) Paragraph 1 an hourly rate lower than the minimum
established for unskilled mechanical employees in that locality
by this Sub-Section 23A.
(2) An employee performing duties coming within more than
one of the classifications in the foregoing schedule shall be com-
pensated on the basis of the rates applying to such several classi-
fications for the time employed.
(3) The foregoing requirements as to mechanical wages do
not apply to apprentices, who are referred to in (e) of this
Sub-Section 23A.
(d) Hours of labor-1. Standard working hours.-Standard
working hours shall be 40 hours per week for all mechanical em-
ployees, including proprietors, supervisors, foremen and/or others
for the time actually engaged in mechanical work. The work week
in the case of each individual employee shall be divided into not
more than six shifts, no one of which will be more than 8 hours
unless overtime be paid. When necessary, overtime shall be per-
mitted; provided (1) that a mechanical employee shall receive not
less than the local overtime rate (one and one-third times or one
and one-half times his hourly wage) for all work in excess of 8 hours
within any 24-hour period; and (2) that no more than 520 hours
shall be worked by any mechanical employee in any 13 weeks period.
It is not intended that any of the foregoing provisions shall limit
the number of days per week or shifts per day an establishment
may operate.
2. Maximum. hour exceptions.-(1) The maximum hours fixed by
this Sub-Section 23A shall not apply to professional persons em-
ployed in their profession, technical employees, or employees on
emergency maintenance, or repair work nor to employees In cases
where the restriction of hours of highly skilled artistic or mechanical
workers on continuous processes would unavoidably reduce produc-
tion; but in the case of such a highly skilled artistic or mechanical
worker the local overtime rate (one and one-third times or one and
one-half times his hourly wage) shall be paid for the hours worked
in excess of the maximum.
(2) A tolerance of 10 per cent, without overtime pay, over the
maximum hours herein prescribed, shall be allowed in the cases of
wash-up crews, shipping crews, material handlers, elevator opera-









tors, and other mechanical employees whose duties have no direct
connection with Graphic Arts processes, and a tolerance of 20 per
cent without overtime pay shall be allowed in the cases of outside
delivery men, porters, engineers, firemen, janitors and watchmen.
The maximum of six shifts per week shall not apply to engineers,
firemen, janitors or watchmen.
(3) In establishments having periods of regular variations or sea-
sonal swells arising from the publication of newspapers (or of parts
thereof) or the production of special editions, employees may work
more than eight hours in any one day without overtime pay.8
(e) Apprentices.-The ratio for apprentices under Sub-Section
23A of this Code shall be not more than one apprentice to three or a
major fraction thereof of journeymen of the respective skilled classi-
fications. However, any plant may have at least one apprentice in
each or any classification of skilled labor in which a journeyman is
employed. The minimum base rates of pay for an apprentice shall
represent the percentages shown below of the minimum wage of a
journeyman of the skilled classification under which such apprentice-
ship is being served:
Per cent Per cent
First Year----------------- 30 Fourth Year ---_------__ -- 60
Second Year 4------__----- 0 Fifth and Sixth Years ------- 75
Third Year----------------- 50
The maximum terms of apprenticeship shall be: For rotogravure
pressmen, four years if (1) over twenty years of age at the start, or
(2) advanced from rotary assistanceship, otherwise six years.
These apprenticeship rules shall not prevent the continuation of the
status of persons already at work under apprenticeship arrangements
made prior to July 1, 1933.
Upon the completion of the term of apprenticeship, journeymen's
minimum rates of pay shall apply.

(1) and A (2) of this Section.
[NOTE.-In case any National Compliance Board shall fail to appoint mem-
bers for a National Labor Board within 30 days after written notice from the
National Graphic Arts Coordinating Committee that such appointment is in
order, the members of said committee representing the Industries concerned
may by majority vote appoint such members for such National Labor Board.]
B. Regional Labor Boards and Temporary Labor Committees:
Regional Labor Boards and/or Temporary Labor Committees may
be appointed, within the jurisdictions of the respective National
Labor Boards above specified, in the following manner:
Any National Labor Board shall establish a Regional Labor.
Board (or a Temporary Labor Committee to deal only with a
particular labor problem) upon written request from a National
Compliance Board stating that in an area specified in such re-
quest there exists a sufficient demand to justify the same. In
such case such National Labor Board shall establish:
(a) A Regional Labor Board for such area, with such num-
ber of members as it finds advisable and so selected that equal
numbers of its members shall represent employers and em-
ployees; and its membership shall be truly representative respec-

provided that such arrangements or procedures are definite and
equitable and are properly posted in the establishment. If no
such arrangements are posted, any complaining employee shall
deliver to the manager or proprietor a specific written complaint
and allow at least 10 days for its adjustment.
(b) A claim not settled under the provision of Clause (a)
may be taken before the appropriate Graphic Arts Regional
Labor Board, if any exists covering the territory where such es-
tablishment is located, or before a Temporary Labor Committee
appointed to deal with the particular labor problem involved.
Where no such Regional Labor Board exists, or no such Tempo-
rary Labor Committee has been appointed, such a claim may be
taken directly to the appropriate National Graphic Arts Labor
Board.
(c) Except where they act under Sub-clause (d) or under
Clause (2) below, National and Regional Labor Boards and
Temporary Labor Committees shall act only upon written peti-
tion accompanied by an affidavit showing that Clause (1) (a) of
Paragraph 2 hereof has been complied with, setting forth the
result of action taken thereunder, and making proof of service
of the petition personally or by registered mail upon each estab-
lishment concerned, its National Code Authority, and its Na-
tional Compliance Board. The Labor Board or Temporary
Labor Committee concerned shall thereupon defer action for
twenty (20) days after the filing of such petition (unless the
National Code Authority concerned shall consent to earlier
action), in order to permit such National Code Authority to
investigate the facts, endeavor to remedy the same, and to re-
port its action thereon to such Labor Board or Temporary Labor
Committee.
(d) Each decision of a Regional Labor Board or a Tempo-
rary Labor Committee under (1) of Paragraph 2 shall be re-
ported in writing within 20 days to the appropriate Natiunal
Labor Board and shall be final, except when reviewed and mod-
ified or reversed by such National Labor Board on its own mo-
tion. Each decision of a National Labor Board shall be final.
(2) Any National or Regional Labor Board or Temporary Labor
Committee may act with respect to, or assist in the solution of, spe-
cific questions relating to wages, hours, or other conditions of labor,
upon the written request or consent of the National Code Authorities
concerned, made or given at the suggestion of some establishment or
establishments affected thereby. In each case, such Board or Com-
mittee shall determine its own procedure.
(3) During the consideration of any controversy, neither party
shall change the conditions existing at the time the controversy
arose, or utilize any coercive or retaliatory measures to compel the
other party to accede to its demands.









PARAGRAPH 3. EXPENSE.-Members of National and Regional
Labor Boards and Temporary Labor Committees shall serve without
compensation but shall be reimbursed for ordinary expenses; pro-
vided, that Chairmen may be compensated on a basis approved by
the National Compliance Boards concerned.
The shares of the expenses of the Graphic Arts National and Re-
gional Labor Boards and Temporary Labor Committees, to be borne
by the Industries concerned, and their allocation among the various
Industries, shall be determined by agreement among the National
Code Authorities within the jurisdiction of the respective Graphic
Arts Labor Boards, such allocation to be made as nearly as possible
upon the basis of the amount of time devoted to the affairs of the
respective National Code Authorities by each such Graphic Arts
Labor Board or Temporary Labor Committee. In case such agree-
ment cannot be reached by the National Code Authorities con-
cerned, the matter shall be determined by the National Graphic Arts
Coordinating Committee. The National Graphic Arts Coordinat-
ing Committee shall have charge of the collection and disbursement
of such funds.'0

S plete as the method prescribed, with such variations of application
and exceptions as may upon proper showing be approved by such
National Code Authority.
S (b) Economic costs, production standards and cost determination
schedules.-Each National Code Authority, within thirty (30) days
after the effective date of this Code, shall compile cost and produc-
S tion records from comparable and representative establishments to
determine departmental economic hourly cost rates and production
standards and cost determination schedules, and, subject to the re-
view of the National Graphic Arts Coordinating Committee and
the Administrator, shall declare and from time to time revise and
declare such cost rates, standards, and schedules.
(c) Cost determination.-After the principles and methods of
accounting and cost finding and, or the departmental economic hourly
cost rates and production standards and or cost determination sched-
ules for an Industry have been declared and prescribed as provided
in paragraphs (a) and (b), each establishment therein shall deter-
mine the costs of its products:
1. In conformity with the principles and methods of account-
ing and cost finding as provided in paragraph (a) ; or

duction standards as provided in paragraph (b), including the
cost of all materials used; or
3. Upon cost determination schedules as provided in para-
graph (b);
it being understood that an establishment may use the method, herein
provided, resulting in the lowest costs of its products. Until the
methods for determining costs as above set forth are prescribed, it is
intended that each establishment will use such a method as has been
prescribed; except that until the cost finding method provided in
paragraph (a) has been prescribed by its National Code Authority,
an establishment having an adequate cost finding system may use
such system, subject to the review of its National Code Authority.
(d) Selling below cost prohibited.-After the costs of its products
can be determined as provided in paragraph (c) of this Section, no
establishment shall sell or offer to sell any product at a price or upon
any terms or conditions that will result in a sale of such product for
less than the cost thereof as so determined; provided, however, that
for a period of twelve (12) months after the effective date of this
Code and thereafter until revoked by the National Code Authority
concerned with the approval of the Administrator, an establishment
may in defense of its business meet a bona fide known competitive
bid of any other establishment provided that the facts of a bid so
made shall be immediately reported to its National Code Authority
anrd to any other National Code Authority concerned; and provided,
further, that any issue of any newspaper or periodical may be sold
or delivered by the publishers at less than the cost thereof as defined
in paragraph (c) of this Section, and any bona fide issue of any
advertising newspaper may be delivered by the publishers without
cost to the reader.
Any National Code Authority may establish departmental eco-
nomic hourly cost rates and production standards or cost determina-
tion schedules, and when such costs have been so established they









may be declared by the National Code Authority or by the National
Product Group with which any such product is identified. Such
declaration by a National Code Authority or a National Product
Group shall be binding only after it has been communicated to the
Consumers Advisory Board of the National Recovery Administra-
tion and approved by the National Graphic Arts Coordinating Com-
mittee and by the Administrator after such notice and hearing as he
may prescribe. After the approval of any such declaration no estab-
lishment shall sell or offer to sell any such product at less than such
costs.
(e) Open price plans.-A National Product Group, a National
Code Authority, or any specialized or regional group of establish-
ments within the jurisdiction of a. National Code Authority, may
adopt an Open Price Plan, which shall become effective not less than
ten (10) days after adoption, provided any such plan substantially
conforms to the provisions hereinafter set forth, does not permit
selling below cost as cost is defined in paragraph (c) of this Section,
and, further, conforms to such rules and regulations as the National
Product Group or National Code Authority concerned may from
time to time prescribe subject to the review of the National Graphic
Arts Coordinating Committee.
1. Within ten (10) days after the effective date of any Open
Price Plan, each establishment, unless excepted by the provisions
of such Plan, shall file with the National Product Group or
National Code Authority concerned a list giving the complete
schedules of prices and/or departmental hourly rates and pro-
duction standards used and/or cost determination schedules
and/or catalogues as such plan may require together with terms
and conditions of sale of all products included in such Open
Price Plan and offered for sale by such establishment, which list
shall become effective in not less than seven (7) days after the
date so filed and shall remain effective until revised as herein-
after provided.
2. An establishment having filed a list with a National Prod-
uct Group or a National Code Authority may revise, change or
modify such list by filing with the National Product Group or
National Code Authority concerned a revision of such list, which
revision shall become effective in not less than seven (7) nor
more than ten (10) days after the date so filed.
3. An establishment filing a list or a revision of a list shall at
the same time furnish the National Product Group or National
Code Authority concerned such copies thereof as may be re-
quired, and the National Product Group or National Code Au-
thority shall within five (5) days after the filing of the list or
revision thereof make same available to all interested persons
in such manner as may seem most practicable.
4. No establishment shall sell or offer to sell any product cov-
ered by such Open Price Plan to which it is subject at a price or
prices lower or upon terms and conditions more favorable than
stated in the list or revision thereof filed by it as hereinabove
provided. However, for a period not exceeding ten (10) days
after the effective date of any revised list, any establishment may
sell as low as any price specified in such revised list.









Any such Open Price Plan may be modified, discontinued or dis-
solved at any time by the group or body originally adopting same,
written notice of which action shall be filed with and made avail-
able by the National Product Group or National Code Authority
concerned.
All rules and regulations governing an adopted Open Price Plan
