Recommendations of the Industrial Appeals
Board in six cases, announced recently, sus-
tained former NRA rulings in three instances
and opposed them in the other three.
Acting on the Appeals Board recommenda-
tions in all of the cases, the NRA asked the
restaurant and bakery industries Code Au-
thorities to appoint committees to Iron out
their problem of jurisdiction over restaurant
bakeries; exempted a New York parcel deliv-
ery company from certain trucking Code pro-
visions; overruled a recommendation of the
National Compliance Council that a glass
company lose Its right to use NRA Insignia;
and instigated a survey of employment prob-
lems in the canning industry.
'The restaurant Industry Code .Authority
had appealed to the Industrial Appeals Board
from an NRA ruling requiring restaurant
bakeries to comply with the Baking Industry
Code and to come under the baking industry
Code Authority jurisdiction.
After hearing witnesses from each Indus-
try, the' Industrial Appeals Board recom-
mended that the NRA ask the respective Code
Authorities to appoint committees "to confer
with each other on this problem in an effort
to reach a speedy conclusion of all the points
at issue."
The Board specified that in the event that
a solution is not reached through this method
by February 15, 1935, or if at any time the ap-
pellant (the restaurant Code Authority) noti-
fies this Board that such an agreement cannot
be reached, then this Board will make defi-
nite recommendations regarding the proper
disposition of this appeal."
Tle National Industrial Recovery Act was
designed to foster self-regulation of industry,
subject to adequate governmental supervi-
sion," the Board said In its recommendation.
"The problem presented here is one which to
us seems peculiarly adapted to negotiations
between and settlement by the representatives
of the two industries concerned. It is our
belief .that a solution so arrived at would be
infinitely -preferable 'to any settlement pro-
posed by us."
In the case of the United Parcel Servipe,
New York, N. Y., the Appeals Board held hear-
ings on the application of the company for
exemption from the registration, rate-filing,
trade, agreement, display of registration Insig-
nia, and secret rebate provisions of the Truck-
ing Industry. Code, which the NRA had .denied.
An exemption 'from the wage and hour pro-
visions bad been previously granted.
In recommending the exemption of the Ap-
peals Board pointed out that the functions of
the company-delivering packages for retail
stores under contract---:-do not compete with
other members of the trucking industry. If'
the appellant did not exist ", the Board stated,
"the business which it now conducts would
not fall to the other members of the truck-
ing industry. The business would, in that
event, be carried on by the stores themselves,
as is the actual situation in most of these
establishments.",
Granting the exemption, the Appeals Board
stated, would help the appellant without
harming thbq industry.
"The NRA Codes are not Intended to op-
press anyone or cause needless inconvenience
unless such inconvenience is essential to pre-
vent injury to others through unfair competi-
tion ", the Board went on. "To grant the
exemption sought by the anpellant * *
would remove the inconvenlence which appel-
lant now suffers and would not at the present
time subject members of the trucking indus-
try to unfair competition."'
The Putnam County Glass Co., Hurricane,
W. Vs., was operating in the rebuilt plant
which had been seriously damaged by fire.
The rebuilding was done and the plant re-
opened last fall by the son of the former
operator, and the name of, the company
changed.
Since the fire occurred a year before the
Code became effective in February 1934, and
since no notice was given the Code Authority
for the American glassware industry of the
reopening of the-plant until October 10, 1934,
the Code Authority :preferred charges of vio-
lation. The Code requires registration of all
melting capacity within 15 days of the effec-
tive date of the Code, and requires a certifi-
cate from NRA before'any new or additional
capacity mpay be installed. On the facts, the
National Compliance Council found that Code
had been violated and recommended that the
right to display the Blue Eagle be withdrawn.
The company appealed the findings, and
action was suspended pending decision on the
appeal.
The Industrial Appeals Board found the
Code Authority's interpretation of the produc-
tion-control provisions of the Code was "alto-
gether too narrow." It pointed out that, con-
trary to the position 'taken by the Code
Authority, violation of the registration provi-
sion did not necessarily obligate the company
to comply with the "new or additional
capacity" provision.
The Appeals Board finding continues:
It cannot be denied that a plant rebuilt
after destruction by fire would be classed as
replacement and not new construction. Such
rebuilding of plant capacity cannot be consid-
ered new or additional. Apparently, the pres-
ent add rebuilt tank is less than pre-existing
capacity *. *. The capacity of the In-
dustry (as a whole) has not been increased.
"The period of inactivity was one during
the severe economic depression and in an in-
dtfstry which Is admittedly dying * *.
The lapse of such a length of time cannot
convert replacement into new capacity."


"We feel that under all the circumstances
the appellant was under no obligation to se-
cure a certificate allowing it to operate new
or additional capacity and that *
there was no violation of section 2 (requiring
such a certificate).
"It is reasonable to hold that where regis-
tration was impossible 15 days after the ef-
fective date of the Code It may be effected at
the earliest date possible. * At the
time. the Code became effective the appellant
was undecided as to whether he would under-
take operation of the plant (and) did not
know in what way he would replace or recon-i
struct the old tanks if he did start up * *
Obviously, therefore, he could not have regis-
tered his capacityV within 15 days after the
effective date of the Code. In the light of
this, It is our opinion that the letter of
October 10, 1934, which was forwarded to the
Code Authority constituted the only 'compli-
ance possible with section 1 (requiring
registration)."
The Industrial Appeals Board confirmed the
NRA decisions denying Code exemption to the
Climax Specialty Co., Troy, Mo.; the Orrison
Cigar Co., Bethesda, Ohio; and Warren J.
Courtney & Son, Mundy Point, Va.
In the Orrison Cigar Co. case the Board
upheld a ruling issued by NRA since the hear-
ing on the company's appeal and granting a
higher tolerance than formerly established.
The Climax Specialty Co. is a member of
the corsetand brassiere industry. It had ap-
plied for permission to pay $6 a week for
learners; $10 a week for operators, and $15 a
week for cutters, although the respective
Code minimum rates are $10, $14, and $25.
This request was denied by NRA.
The company based the appeal on its size,
employing only 20 people; on its location in a
small town, distant from the market-and from
supplies of skilled labor, and the argument
that before the Code its wages were extremely
low, and compliance with the Code rates
would impose a great hardship. The Board
found that the company is not below the in-
dustry average in either volume or number of
employees, that most plants in the industry
are also located in small towns, and that the
pre-Code wage scale of the Climax company
was not unique."
"In our opinion ", the Appeals Board said,
"arrived at after careful consideration of the
general claims which the appellant has made
Sand of the whole record in the case, we do not
find that. the Code or any of its provisions
oppresses or discriminates against the appel-
lant."
A similar finding was made in the case of
Warren J. Courtney & Son, which operates a-
canning factory in the Tidewater area of
Virginia. The Compliance 'Council had found
the company violated .the minimum wage pro-
visions of the Canning Industry Code and
recommended that It be deprived of the right
to use NRA insignia.
The Code violations were admitted, but the
company based an appeal on the argument
that compliance with the Code provisions is
not general in the Tidewater Virginia area,
and that some Tidewater canners would be
unable to operate if compelled to pay the' Code
wages.
In its findings the Appeals Board said:
"In the light of all the. circumstances
* we are of the opinlop that there was
no abuse of discretion by the Cbmpliance
Council * *, nor does evidence, sub-'
mitted to us establish that the appellant is
discriminated against or oppressed by any
provision of the Code. The appellant employs
over 100 persons. The wage rates provided
In the Code are low in comparison with provi-
sions of other Codes. The appellant stated
that it would comply with the wage require-
ments of the Code next year. It seems to us
more than probable that Its difficulty this
year was caused by the fact that It made a
large commitment for its output early in the
season at an unfavorable price. It failed to
show that it could not have operated under
the wage rates provided for In the Code.
We, therefore, affirm the recommenda-
tions of the Compliance Council.. At the same
time,.we recommend that a thorough study of
the labor problems of the industry be under-
taken immediately with the purpose of mak-
ing any desirable changes before the next
canning season."
In the case of the Orrison Cigar Co., Be-
thesda, Ohio, the company was granted per-
mission on January 14 to pay bunchmakers of
stogies retailing at 3 for 5 cents a minimum
of 85 cents per thousand cigars, and rollers of
similar stogies a minimum of $1.66 a thousand
cigars. The company had previously asked
exemption from the minimum wage rate of
$1.20 and $3 per thousand, respectively, estab-
lished for such cigars by Administrative order
under the Cigar Code.
Data on the average rate of production of
the company's employees was not furnished to
support the original application, nor was in-
formation on the pay they earned at the piece
rates established. After appeal bad been
taken to the Industrial Appeals Board the
company furnished a record of its pay roll for
several months of 1933 and the average pro-
ductivity of the bunchmakers and hand roll-
ers on the 2 for 5 and 3 for 5 cigars. Figures
were also submitted on the average productiv-
ity of similar classes of workers of other firms
in the district.
In the light of this new evidence the peti-
tion was remanded to the deputy administra-
tor for further consideration, and the order
granting a lower piece rate was issued.
IjA Its findings the Board said, "We are of

Approves Codefor


SRetail Meat
' President Roosevelt has approved a Code
':for the retail meat trade, according to a
.'recent announcement by the National Indus-
. trlal Recovery Board. The Code Is binding
i'on establishments in which sales of meats
.account for more than 50 percent of the total
. sales.
SA separate schedule, amounting to a sup-
'.plementary Code, was approved for "kosher"
i:meat retailers.
E': Labor provisions of the Retail Meat Code
: follow very closely those of the Retail Food
t and Grocery Code. Maximumnworking hours
:,are set at 48 hours a week, at minimum
wages of $10 to $15 a week, depending on
population, with' a $1 differential In the
LSouth. Managers are exempt from the maxl-
|.mum hours provisions; provided they' receive
.-certain minimum salaries; also graded by
r population and region. Overtime allowance
!' Is made for holiday periods. The schedule
-{for the "kosher" trade establishes minimum
wages of $25 in cities over 1,000,000 and $20
Ielsewhere for employees engaged In cutting
.pr preparing. meats for sale or assisting in
s..uch work. Messenger boys and delivery
ikboys In the South are not subject to the mini-
in'mum wage provisions but must receive at
-least 20 percent more than the rate prevail-
Ming June 15, 1938.
r The Code contains provisions making it an
Inair trade practice to misrepresent meat as
.tbat for which a definition of identity has
'been prescribed by the Department of Agri-
ulture and which simulates such a product
br falls to conform to such definition, and to
sell meats which have been kept in storage
[below freezing longer than 30 days except as
cold-storage meat. It also contains the
standard destructive price-cutting provisions
jnd permission for the National Industrial
Recovery Board to establish minimum prices
luring any emergency found to exist. These
"rules, however, were stayed by the, Presi-
dent's order of approval until the same. pro-
vistons can be incorporated In Codes govern-
ing the retailing of meat not covered by this
ode.
The letter transmitting the Code to the
President says:
I. "Provisions governing the advertising and
sellingg methods for the dealers who will be
-governed by this Code should ,be incorpo-
rated In the Code of fair competition for the
'retail food and .grocery trade."
SOther trade practice rules, which are not
stayed, 'prohibit defamation of competitors.
commercial bribery, inaccurate advertising,
false Invoicing, enticing employees, and, sell-
ig. except by net weight of 16-ounce pounds.
t'.'The President's order approving the Code
prescribes the constitution of the Code Au-
thbrity to administer the Code. It is to con-
iSt of 11 industry members, 7 to be selected
by the 'Board of Directors. of the National
Association of 'Retail Meat Dealers, Inc., 1
-. the Federation of Kosher Butchers of
Greater New York, Inc., 1 by the National
Association of Meat, Poultry, and Game Pur-
veybrs, and2 2by' the National Industrial Re-
Iovery Board to represent members of the
-rade not affiliated with those organizations.
."any )memberships remain unfilled after 30
days the board may appoint representatives.
tThe schedule for the "kosher" trade is to
be administered by an 11-member Code Au-
'ority, 7 selected by the Board of Directors
o'fthe Federation of Kosher Butchers of
iGreater New York, Inc., and 4 by members

J:Ln 1929 the total meat sales reported in
eesus figures were $2,090,125.000. There
as a decline in 1933, to $1,166,428,911. Fig-
iEes on the number of employees are difficult

Pnnected with grocery retailing. However,*

l22,995 persons directly employed in retailing

.There are three principal methods of meat

Interpretations


Motor Vehicle Retailing Trade
No, 46-55, Article III, Title B, Sections (4) and (6)


FACTS.-In Its first eight lines, article -II,
title B, section 4, of the Code provides for
minimum wages in cities of various sizes.
In lines 8 to 20, it provides for an exception
to those minima in the following terms:
"Except" that one washer-or greaser or
porter or'helper or aged or physically handi-
capped worker may be employed at less than
$13 per-week In such establishment; and ex-
cept that in establishments employing more
than 19 employees the number of such em-
ployees who are paid less than $13 per week
may equal but not exceed 10 percent of the
total number of employees In any such estab-
lishment; and provided further, that no em-
ployee shall be paid less than $13 per week
who was not receiving less than this wage
on August 1, 1933; and, provided further, that
the wakes of any employee receiving less than
$13 per week shall be Increased by at least
20 percent, despite his shortened hours, pro-
vided, however, that no employer is required
to raise the wages of any such employee
above $13 per week."
Section 6 of the same article and title pro-
vides for hourly rates for mechanics and then
states: "The weekly minimum wages estab-
lished in paragraph 4 above shall also apply
to mechanics covered by this paragraph (6)."
The company concerned employs seven me-
chanics and pays one of them 6nly $8 per
week. The man receiving only $8 per week
was hired in March 1934. All seven of these
men spend a paTt of their time washing and
greasing cars.
QUESTION-Under article III, title B,
section (4) and (6), can a mechanic be paid
less than the minimum weekly wages pre-
scribed in the first eight lines of section (4)?
Can a washer or greaser be paid less than
the minimum wages prescribed in the first
eight lines in' section (4)?
INTERPRETATION.-Section (6) incor-
porates only so much of section (4) as pre-
scribes a weekly minimum (lines 1 to 8).
The exception contained in lines 8 to 20
applies only to washers, greasers, porters,
helpers, or aged or physically handicapped
workers. Therefore, a mechanic, unless in-
cluded in the aged or physically handicapped
workers class, may not be paid less than the
minimum wages prescribed by section (4),
lines 1 to 8. In establishments having 19 or
less employees, one washer, greaser, porter,
helper, or aged or physically handicapped
worker may be employed for less than $13
per week provided such employee was em-
ployed before August 1, 1933, and provided
the pay of such employee was increased by
20 percent of his pre-code wage, except that
no employer is required to raise thewnges
of such an employee above $13 per week. In
establishments having more than' 19 em-
ployees, more than one employee may be paid
at a rate of less than $13 per week, but such
number of employees may not exceed 10 per-
cent of the total number of employees, pro-
vided such 10 percent of the company's em-
ployees are washers, greasers, porters, help-
ers or aged or physically handicapped


workers, and that theother con

2. It is a violation of article V, section 4,
not to pay such employees at least the milni-
