PREAMBLE
The group presenting this code, and whose individual names are
attached hereto, represents more than seventy-five (75) percent of the
industry, both as to numbers of manufacturers and productive
capacity.
SThe purpose of this code is to increase employment, to improve
standards and wages of labor, to establish maximum hours of employ-
ment, to eliminate unfair competitive practices, and to improve
conditions in our industry generally.
This code is conceived as being fair to employees, competitors,
distributors, and consumers.
It is not the purpose of this code to promote monopoly or to elimi-
nate or oppress small enterprises, and will not operate to discriminate
against them.
To effectuate the policy of Title I: of the National Industrial Re-
covery Act, the following provisions are established a~s a National In-
dustrial Recovery Code for the Chuck Manufacturing Indust~ry.
SECTION 1. DEFINITIONs: The term "LChuck Manufacture" as
used herein is defined t~o mean the manufacture for sale of Chucks of
any nature, and other similar attachments, and their component
parts, which are used as an attachment for power-operated tools
whether chucks or other similar attachments are operated by air,
power, or manually. The term "person" as used herein shall include
natural persons, partnerships, associations, and corporations. The
term "employer as used herein shall include evTery person promoting,
or actively engaged in, the manufacture for sale of the products of the
Chuck Industry as herein defined. The term "effective date" as
used herein is defined to be the elevlenth day after this code shall have
been approved by the President of the United States.
SEc. II. As required by Section 7 (a) of Title I of the National
Industrial Recovery Act, the following provisions are conditions of
this Code:
(1) That employees shall have the right to organize and bargain collectively
through representatives of their own choosing, and shall be free from the inter-
ference, restraint, or coercion of employers of labor, or their agents, in the desig-
nation of such representatives or in self-organization or in other concerted activi-
ties for the purpose of collective bargaining or other mutual aid or protection;
(2) that no employee and no one seeking employment shall be required as a con-
dition of employment to join any company union or to refrain from joining,
organizing, or assisting a labor organization of his own choosing; and (3) that
employers shall comply with the maximum hours of labor, minimum rates of pay,
and other conditions of employment approved or prescribed by the President.
It is clearly understood that the foregoing paragraphs do not impair
in any particular the constitutional rights of the employee and

employer to bargain individually or collectively as may be mutually
satisfactory t~o them; nor does it impair the joint right of employer
and employee to operate an open shop.
Nothing in this code is to prevent the selection, retention, and
advancement of employees on the basis of their individual merit,
without regard to their affiiation or nonaf~filiation with any labor
orgramza~tion.
SEc. III. Subject to the approval of the President, the undersigned
agree:
1. Not to employ any person under sixteen years of age.

more than a maximum week of forty hours in any one week or more
than eight hours in any one day.
4. The maximum hours fixed in the foregoing paragraphs 2 and 3
shall not apply to employees in a managerial, executive, or supervisory
capacity, nor to employees on emergency, m~amtenance, or repair
work, or to very special cases, where restrictions of hours of highly
skilled workers would unavoidably reduce production but in any
such special case, at least time and one third shall be paid for hours
worked in excess of the maximum.
5. Not to pay any of the classes of employees mentioned in para-
graph 2 less than 14 dollars a week: Prov~ided, however, That casual
and incidental labor and learners may be paid not less than 80%0 of
such minimum wage but the total amount paid to such casual and

this agreement which is among other things, to increase employment
by a universal covenant to remove obstructions to commerce, and to
shorten hours and to raise wages for the shorter week to a living basis.
8. Where before June 16, 1933, the undersigned had contracted

agreement, the undersigned will, if requested, make an appropriate
adjustment of said fixed price to meet any increase in cost caused by

having become bound by any code of fair competition approved by
the President.

lete goods, shall not be sold below the cost of production. Such cost

goods are to be stamped "'Obsolete" or "'Second."'

with the approval of the President of the United States, be modified
or eliminated as changed circumstances or experiences may indicate.

practices of the Chuck Industry will be continued by members of the
Chuck Industry with the intention of submitting from time to time
additions to this Code applicable to all employers in the Chuck M~anu-
facturing Industry.
SEc. VII. If any employer of labor in the Chuck M~anufacturing
Industry is also an employer of labor in any other industry, the pro-
visions of this Code shall apply to and effect only that part of his
business which is inlcuded in the Chuck Manufacturing Industry.
