EXHIBIT "A"


Re~olriol, That arnienln11ents to Attiloe III ind Article IV of the
Code of Fair Competition for the Bituminous Coal Industry by and
the same hereby are proposed, to be and to become effective generally,
so that said Articles III and IV will read as follows:
ARTICLE III-MAXIMUM Houb s oF LABOR
No employee, except members of the exeicuti v., supervisory, techni-
cal and confidential personnel, shall be eFip)loyed in excess of seven
hours per day and five days per week, subject to the exceptions here-
inafter stated.
Seven hours of labor shall constitute a day's work and this means
seven hours work at the usual working places for all classes of labor,
exclusive of the lunch period, whether they be paid on the day or the
tonnage or other piecework basis; except in cases of accident which
temporarily necessitate longer hours for those required on account
thereof; and also excepting that number of w:rki;rs in each mine
whose daily work includes the handling of man-trips and those
required to remain on duty while men are entering and leaving the
mine.
The following classes of mine workers are exempted from the pro-
visions as to the maximum hours of work:
(a) All workers engaged in the trninsportation of coal shall work the
additional time necessary to handle muan-trips, and/or haulage animals,
and all coal in transit, and shall be paid the regllair hourly rates.
Mine workers engaged in the dumping, handling and preparation of
coal, and in the nimlnuifactlire of coke, shall work the additional time
necessary, not to exceed thirty minutes, to dump and prepare the coal
deliveridl to the tipple each day and to complete the usual duties
incidental to the operation of coke ovns, and shall be paid the regular
hourly rates. This rule shall not encourage the working of such over-
time except where it is necessary to take care of the conditions named.
(b) Employees engaged at power houses, substations and pumps
operating continuously for 24 hours daily are especially exempted
from the seven-hour prvis-ion. Special (c'.eXlptions of employees
other than those named above may be provided, by joint agreements
negotiated in n.'r.lia u nce wvith this code, which shall not provide for
work in excess of 8 hours per day and 40 hours per week.
ARTICLE IV-MINIMUM RATES OF PAY
From April 1, 1934 to April 1, 1935 the basic minimum rate for
inside skilled labor and the basic minimum rate for outside common
labor shall be the rate hereinafter set forth in Schedule "A" for each
district therein described for each such classification of labor, with the
understanding that other classifications of employment will maintain
their customer differentials above or below said basic minimum rates.
To secure the parity bet ween minimum rates for day labor and mini-
mum pay for work performed on a tonnage or other piece work basis,
the latter shall be determined by the following increases over existing











rates in all of the Districts of Schedule "A" except as hereinafter
expressly provided:
On the basis of the 2,000 pound ton, an increase of 10 cents per ton
for pick mining; 8 cents per ton for maiicine mining; an increase of 1
cent per toll for cutting, and for all yardnaze and dead-work rates an
increase of 9 percent.
In addition to the increases above provided the minimlnl rates for
tonnage anjd other piecework in Districts B, G, H, J and J-1, shall be
further increased by an amount sufficent, to maintain the parity
between p:ay for such tonnage and piece work and the basic minimum
rates for day labor as prescribed for such Districts in Schedule "A".
