Preface

The U .S . Department of L a b o rfs Bureau of Labor Statistics
had a twofold aim in undertaking a study of collective bargaining agree­
ment clauses providing for labor-management safety, production, and
industry stabilization committees0 One purpose was to examine the
structure, procedures, and functions established for these committees;
the other was to measure the prevalence of such provisions among
major agreements.

This bulletin presents excerpts from a variety of provisions
relating to such committees found in recent union contracts. These
excerpts are presented as a source of reference only, and should not
be considered as ideal, model, or typical clauses. Each of the a g re e ­
ments studied was in effect during the latter half of 1954 or in 1955
and covered at least 1,000 w orkers.

Some of the clauses reproduced in this report were subjected
to minor editorial change to enhance clarity; irrelevant parts were
omitted where feasible.
The clauses are numbered and agreements
from which they have been excerpted are identified by employer and
union in an index (p. 29).

The agreements studied were selected from the Bureau*s file
of current agreements, maintained for public and governmental use
in accordance with section 211 of the Labor Management Relations
Act of 1947.

This report was prepared in the Bureau *s Division of Wages
and Industrial Relations by Robert Platt and Dena G o W eiss.
