UNION SCALES OF WAGES AND HOURS OF LABOR, MAY 15,1930
INTRODUCTION
Since 1911 the Bureau of Labor Statistics each year has collected,
compiled, and published statisticsrelating to the wage rates and hours
of labor as agreed to by organized workers and their employers.
The study, until 1928, was limited almost exclusively to the principal
general trades paid at time rates and to the principal cities of the
country. The trades covered in these annual reports have varied
from year to year and the list of cities has been increased.
In publishing these reports it was recognized that there were still
many classes of union workers not represented. There were large
numbers of organized workers employed at piece rates, there were
localized industries in which employees were paid by either time or
piece rates, and there were minor trade groups in tne regular cities
canvassed. These trades had not been canvassed mainly because of
the limitation of funds available for the union wage study.
Recognizing the need for additional information on the subject
the scope of the study was enlarged in 1928 to include a considerable
number of other trades and localities, data for which were collected
as of 1927 and 1928 and published in a separate volume as Bulletin
476.
The scope of the study for 1929 was still further enlarged, the
effort being made to include representative scales for all labor organ­
izations in the United States. The effort was not entirely success­
ful, as a few organizations were either unable or unwilling to furnish
the necessary information, but data of a more or less satisfactory
character were obtained from practically all organized trades. These
data are presented in the present volume, continuity with the earlier
reports being preserved by dividing the volume into two parts.
Part 1 covers the same trades and cities as the preceding reports of
the bureau on union wage scales and includes only the principal time­
work trades found in most of the larger cities, the wage scales of
which are of a character which permits of a uniform method of statis­
tical presentation. The study in 1930 was conducted similarly with
the study in 1929. Part 2 presents the union scales for all other
organized trades for which the bureau was able to obtain information.
All the data given in Part 1 and practically all the data in Part
2 relate to May 15,1930, but in some instances the scales in Part 2
are of a slightly later date.




PARTI
GENERAL TRADES PAID AT TIME KATES, BY CITIES
In the first part of this report are presented the union wage scales
as of Majr 15, 1930, for 758,211 members of organized general trades
as found in 67 important industrial cities geographically distributed
so that a fair representation may be obtained for the country as a
whole. Following is a list of the trade groups in this part of the report
and the'total number of union members represented in each group.

Seventy-five trades and subdivisions of trades have been included.
The average hourly rates of wages for the several trades and groups
o f tradesin 1930 in comparison with the rates in 1929 appear in Table
2, page 5. The hourly rate of wages for all trades herein listed taken
collectively shows an increase of 4.6 cents per hour as between 1929
and 1930.
The per cent of change in hourly rates of wages in 1930 as compared
with 1929 is shown by trade groups.

Full-time hours per week of all trades taken as a unit have con­
tinued the steady downward trend, decreasing 0.9 of an hour from
1929 to 1930. B y trade groups the granite and stone trades showed
the largest decrease, namely, 1.7 hours. Other decreases in full­
time hours per week by trade groups were: Building trades 1.2 hours,
linemen 1.3 hours, longshoremen 0.1 of an hour, chauffeurs and team­
sters and drivers 0.3 o f an hour. Laundry workers showed no change at
all, while bakers, book and job printing and newspaper printing changed
so slightly that the change could not be measured m tenths of an hour.
* No change.

G EN ERAL TRADES PAID A T TIM E B A T E S, B T C ITIE S

The average hours per full-time week for all trades and all cities
herein covered are 43.9 hours.
Table 1 shows the average hours per full-time week and the per
cent of members, by trade groups, working each classified number of
hours per week. In this table it is of interest to note that in the trades
listed 37.7 per cent or slightly more than three-eighths have a working
week of 40 hours or less, while only 8.3 per cent nave a week of more
than 48 hours.

In reading this report it must be kept in mind that it does not cover
all cities of the United States nor all trades and that the averages are
based on the data here compiled. In computing the averages for the
trades the rates in the several cities were weighted by the number of
members in the city.
The averages are based on all data available each year. There
may be an effective scale in a city one year and not in the next year.
If mere is no effective scale, the city does not enter into the average.
A change in the average, therefore, is possible though there be no
change m any of the other cities.
Further, mere may be a change in the average when there is no
change in the rate or hours for any city, all due to a change in the
relative number of union members. If there is an increase in mem­
bership in high-rate cities and not in low-rate cities the average for the
country is raised. Conversely, if increase of membership occurs in
the low-rate rather than in the high-rate cities the average is lowered.
A few changes in the large widespread trades may cause but little
change in the average, while a few changes in a trade limited as to
cities or as to membership may materially affect the average. For
example:
In 1929:
City A reports 16 men, at $50 per week, earn an aggregate of_$800
City B reports 10 men, at $60 per week, earn an aggregate of600
_
Total, 26 men earn_ _____________________________ 1,400
1-man average. $53.85.
In 1930:
City A reports 12 men, at $50 per week, earn an aggregate of- $600
City B reports 12 men, at $60 per week, earn an aggregate of720
Total, 24 men earn________________________________ 1,320
1-man average, $55.

UNION SCALES OF WAGES AND HOURS OF LABOR

The cities are mainly the largest cities of the country where rates
often are higher than in the small cities. The trades covered are
those in which the workers are almost universally paid at time rates.
It is not practicable to tabulate in this section of the report the many
piece rates that are found in some trades.
For convenience in comparisons, all rates are shown in Table A
(p. 78) per full-time week as well as per hour. The average full-time
weekly rate for 1930 for all trades combined increased 1.3 per cent over
the 1929 rate.
Weekly rates in 1930 by trade groups showed small increases in all
groups except bakers and the granite and stone trades, ranging from
one-tenth of 1 per cent for the newspaper printing trades to 7 per cent
for linemen. The bakers’ and the granite and stone trades’ rates of
wages per full-time week each decreased 1.2 per cent.
It is impossible, of course, to follow up the thousands of individual
union members and get from them the time they work and the amount
of time they do not work; hence no statement can be made of their
actual earnings in a week or in a year. This report can treat only of
rates of wages as distinct from actual earnings.
For a description of the scope of this report and the methods
followed, see pages 73 and 74.
AVERAGE HOURLY RATES OF WAGES AND NUMBER OF
CHANGES IN UNION SCALES, BY TRADES
The average money rates of wages per hour as of May 15, 1930
and 1929, for the country as a whole are given for each trade and for
trade groups in Table 2. These averages were obtained by multi­
plying each hourly rate by the number of members of the union,
then adding the products and the number of members and dividing
the aggregate wages_ by the aggregate number of members. The
number of members is held strictly confidential and is used only for
the purpose of computing the averages.
Table 2 shows that the average rate per hour of all trades considered
increased from $1,204 in 1929 to $1,250 in 1930.
For 1930 there are tabulated 4,593 union-scale quotations, for 357
of which there are no comparable data for 1929. Of the 4,236 unionscale quotations for which there are comparable data for 1929, 2,723
had not changed during the year and 1,513 had changed in rates or
hours or both of these items. There are 1,181 instances of an increase
in hourly wage rates in 1930 as compared with 1929; 942 instances of
an increase in wage rates per week; and 28 instances of an increase in
hours of labor. There are 74 instances of a reduction in hourly wage
rates in 1930 as compared with 1929; 404 instances of a reduction in
wage rates per full-time week; and 572 instances of a reduction in
hours of labor. Of the 572 decreases in hours per week, none occurred
in the bakery trades or laundry workers; 407 occurred in the building
trades; 71 in chauffeurs and teamsters and drivers; 10 in the granite
and stone trades; 3 in linemen; 2 in longshoremen; 11 in book and
job printing; and 68 in newspaper printing trades.

UNION SCALES OP WAGES AND HOURS OF LABOR

Table 2 shows further that of the 270 quotations for bakers tabu­
lated in 1930, 254 were comparable with 1929, and that of the 254
comparable with 1929, 7 increased, 10 decreased, and 237 had no
change in wage rates per hour; 8 increased, 6 decreased, and 240 had
no change in wage rates per full-time week; while 7 increased and 247
had no change in number of hours per full-time week. The other
items of the table may be read in like manner.
Expressed in percentages of the total number of union-scale quota­
tions in which there were scale changes, 78.1 per cent resulted in
increases and 4.9 per cent in decreases in rates of wages per hour;
62.3 per cent provided increases and 26.7 per cent decreases in wage
rates per full-time week; and 1.9 per cent provided increases and 37.8
per cent decreases in the hours per full-time week.
WEEKLY HOURS OF LABOR, BY TRADES
Table 3 shows the percentage of members in each trade or occupation
working certain classified hours per week on May 15, 1930.
It wul be observed from the table that 96.7 per cent of the bakers
had a week of 48 hours or less, and that 55.5 per cent or more than helf
of the building trades members had a week of 40 hours.
Seven crafts in the building trades with averages of under 41 hours
per week had the shortest working week. The longest working week as
shown by the report was that for teamsters and drivers, 55.5 hours,
and for chauffeurs, 53.2 hours.

The continuing decrease in hours per full-time week for the past
several years has been largely due to the adoption of a 5-day week by
many of the crafts. Table 4 shows the extent to which the 5-day week
was in effect in the trades and cities included on May 15,1930.
The general adoption of the 5-day week by trade-unionists is being
very rapidly accomplished by some trade groups, the most significant
advance in this movement being among the building trades, where
all crafts have the short week in some degree. In some cities all
crafts of the building trades have adopted the short working week,
and the lathers, painters, and plasterers and some individual crafts
within the group have gone far toward its general adoption. Con­
sidering the membership of the granite and stone trades in the
cities in which these trades were found, more than half of the granite
cutters and more than a third of the stone cutters had a 5-day week.
Among the balance of the groups, linemen show a trend toward the
adoption of the 5-day week, longsnoremen and laundry workers show
no members at all on such a basis, while the bakers ana the chauffeurs
and teamsters and drivers show only a superficial beginning. In the
printing trades, both book and job and newspaper, few members have
a 5-day week. The few that do have the short week are mainly em­
ployed on foreign text composition, the exception being the photo­
engravers, especially in the book and job printing trades, who have a
long-term agreement providing a 5-day week for an additional month
each year until the whole year is worked on that basis.




WEEKLY HOURS OP LABOR, BY TRADES

11

The table does not reflect the entire adoption of the 5-day week
because some of the crafts, for instance the building laborers in the
building trades, although actually working only 5 days per week have
not officially adopted or incorporated this 5-day week m their agree­
ments with employers. In such cases the bureau is bound by the
agreements and shows a 5K-day week for them as the craft could work
the longer time, the elements of union wages being as defined in part,
“ an agreement between the craft and employers and for maximum
hours.”

According to Table 5 the weekly rate for bakers increased 157.1
per cent between 1913 and 1930. This means that the bakers’ full­
time weekly wage rate in 1930 was more than two and one-half times
.the rate o f .19.13... Between.1907 and. 1930 the bakers’ weekly rate
increased 202.2 per cent. In other words, bakers’ wages in 1930
were more than three times those of 1907.
Data for all trades are not available as far back as 1913. So far
as shown, the greatest increase in any trade between 1913 and 1930
was in steam and sprinkler fitters’ helpers. Here the increase was
205.8 per cent, making the rate more than three times as much in
1930 as in 1913. The greatest increase between 1907 and 1930 is
also for steam and sprinkler fitters’ helpers. In this trade the weekly
rate in 1930 was more than three and six-tenths times the rate in 1907.
INDEX NUMBERS OF ALL TRADES COMBINED, 1907 TO 1930
The index numbers in Table 6 are percentages in which the rates
for all of the years were compared with the rate in the selected base
year (1913), which is taken as 100. Table 6 shows the extent of the
changes in all cities and all trades combined, in union wage rates
taken as a whole for each year from 1907 to 1930: the data for pre­
ceding years are drawn from earlier reports.

Table 6 shows that union wage rates per hour were higher in 1930
than in any preceding year, the index for 1930 being 272.1. This
means that union wage rates per hour as a whole were nearly two and
three-fourths times as much in 1930 as they were in 1913.
Full-time hours per week were 10.2 per cent lower in 1930 than in
1913 and full-time weekly earnings were more than 2.4 times as much
in 1930 as in 1913.
As some readers may desire to make comparisons with the initial
year, 1907, a table of index numbers has been computed from the
same basic figures starting with 1907 as 100.

Table 7 shows an index for wage rates per hour of 303.2 in 1930 as
compared with 100 in 1907. This means that the rates per hour were
more than three times as much in 1930 as in 1907. The index for
full-time hours per week in 1930 is 87.5, meaning that since 1907 full­
time hours per week have decreased 12.5 per cent. The index for
full-time rates of wages per week stands at 266.3in 1930,meaning that
full-time weekly earnings were slightly less than two and two-thirds
times as much in 1930 as in 1907.




INDEX NUMBERS, BT TRADES

An inspection o f these index numbers shows that the grand average
o f union rates of wages per hour has increased each year save one for
the last 22 years, the average for 1922 being lower than the average
for 1921. The average rate per full-time week showed an increase
every year except two— 1922 and 1928.
While the rate o f wages has been increasing the hours per full-tim e
week have been almost as steadily decreasing; only two years showed
increases, viz, 1921 and 1922.

To set forth more clearly the extent of change from year to year in
the grand average of union rates of wages per hour and of hours per
full-time week Table 8 is presented. This table shows the per cent of
change in the rate of wages per hour and in hours per full-time week
in May of one year compared with the rate and hours in May of the
preceding year.

Certain other trades and trade groups not included in this report
have been carried by the bureau in the union wage reports in pre­
ceding years. A list of these trades and the bulletins in which they
appear are stated in Bulletin 404, page 57.
The asterisks in the preceding list indicate cities added since the
first report. In Table A, page 78, data for each of the cities are given
for each trade in which a scale was in effect.
EXPLANATION OF TERMS AND METHODS

A union scale, as the term is here used, is a statement, either
written or definitely understood, of wages and hours of labor agreed
to or accepted by an organization of union men and an employer or
group of employers, under which agreement, expressed or implied,
union men actually work. A union scale usually fixes the limit in
only one direction. It sets a minimum wage and a maximum of
hours for a regular day’s work. This report shows such minimum
wage and maximum hours as are estabhshed by the agreed to or
accepted scale. In certain cities and trades, however, some work­
men, and in some few instances all or nearly all workmen, actually
are paid more than the scale, and in some instances employees work
fewer hours than the scale calls for. As a general rule, however, the
union scale represents the prevailing wage of a locality.
In cases where bonuses are definitely reported in one fixed amount
and apparently are to rem ish
&
effect indefinitely, such bonuses
have been combined with thg'l^giitat’ rdte.
The observance of Labox. Day as a holiday is so general and the
fact is so widely understood.ithat it has been deemed unnecessary to
refer to the many
dements *which prohibit the performance of
ordinary work on th^rd&y:. ‘Hpwever, in instances where the pro__

question indicates (hat aninsignificant number of union members
were working for less than the scale, while a considerable number
were receiving more than the scale. Some trades were not organized
in certain cities, and some were organized only in part. When
organized in part, with a scale in force for such men as were organized,
the scale is published.
The union scales in this section of the report are almost entirely
time-rate scales. The only piece-rate scales shown are for lathers, and
for machine operators in the printing trades, and one quotation for
longshoremen. These occupations nave simple units of payment
which are commonly understood. Many trades work to a large
extent on piece rates. Such rates are so great in number and the
units of payment so variable that it is not practicable to quote them
in arbitrary tables as are shown in this section.
The various scales agreed to by employers and trade-unions state
wages for differing units of time. Some scales designate the rates
of wages by the nour, others by the day, week, or month. The
varying rates have beat converted into common terms, and both
hourly and weekly rates are shown.
General Table A (p. 78) shows the rates of wages per hour and
the rates per full-time week, the rates for overtime, Sunday, and
holiday work, the regular hours for a full day, for Saturday, and
for a full week, the number of months in the year for whicn the
agreement provided for a Saturday part or whole holiday, and the
per cent of members receiving more than scale and the amount or
range received. Corresponding figures for 1929 are reproduced, in
part, in this table.
Certain unions have agreements that Saturday or some other
week day shall be a day of rest instead of Sunday. In such cases
the overtime provision for this day has been tabulated as equivalent
to the usual Sunday provision. In other words, “ Sunday” is con­
sidered as comprehensive enough to cover any fixed rest day. Like­
wise, if there is a short day in the week other than Saturday, it has
been tabulated as equivalent to a Saturday provision.
Due to some peculiar local conditions the actual rates per hour
and per week ana the hours per week are not exactly what the agree­
ment shows. The bureau has tabulated the rate and hours that the
full-time employed man receives; for example, in Worcester, Mass.,
the nominal rate for web pressmen, night, is $45 per week for 42
hours and the nominal rate per hour would be 107.1 cents. How­
ever, all the men employed work an extra 1 hours every Saturday
%
for which they get $1 additional, and time and a half, which makes
an actual wage of $48.73 for 43K hours, received regularly each week
by them.
Where two or more quotations of rates and hours are shown for
the same occupation in the same city, such quotations represent
two or more agreements between unions and employers, sometimes
different unions, sometimes different employers, sometimes both.
The letters A, B, C, etc., are used to designate different quotations,
but have no other significance..
When the number of hours per week differed during a part of
the year from that shown for May, the difference has been noted
in the table.

UNION SCALES OF WAGES AND HOURS OF LABOR

When a strike or lockout was pending on May 15, the scale which
was in effect before the strike or lockout began has been tabulated
with a note, “ Old scale; strike pending.”
Most of the data for this report were obtained by special agents
of (he bureau through personal visits to business agents, secretaries,
or other officials of the respective trade-unions in the several cities.
The State labor bureaus of Massachusetts, Ohio, Pennsylvania,
and Wisconsin, for their own purposes^ collect union-wages scales
within their respective States. To avoid duplication of field work
in these States they have furnished such information as is necessary
to this compilation.
^The Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin data were collected en­
tirely by personal visits of special agents of those States. The
Massachusetts bureau collected its data in part by correspondence
and in part by sending out special agents.
In the work of this bureau and of the four State bureaus named,
wage scales, written agreements, and trade-union records were con­
sisted wherever available. Over 2,000 union representatives were
visited.
Scales for apprentices are not shown, but scales for helpers in a
number of trades are given. In some trades (he work of helpers is
performed in part by apprentices. Whenever it was found that the
work of helpers is largely done by apprentices, the scales for such
helpers have been omitted.
An inspection of the general table shows for some occupations a
great variation in trade terms and classifications^ in (he differen(
cities. For example, bakers are classed in some cities as first hands,
second hands, ana third hands; in other cities as mixers, bench men,
oven men, etc. The difference in occupation names makes a com­
parison between cities difficult. Inquiry has shown tha( (he terms
“ first hand,” “ second hand,” etc., do not cover identical work in
the different cities where these terms are used. Certain work may
be considered first-hand work in one ci(y and second-hand work in
another city. Of necessity, this bureau has followed the terminology
used in each city.
There are also great variations in classification and in the extent
of subdivision of chauffeurs and teamsters and drivers, and of book­
binding and presswork occupations, making comparison of city with
city quite difficult; and similar conditions, less in degree, are found
in several other trades. Special rates for inconsequential groups
within these occupations have been omitted in some cities.
As stated before, (he average rates shown in preceding tables were
obtained bv multiplying the rate for each city by (he number of
union members, adding (he products for all cities, and dividing (he
sum by (he aggregate membership in all cities which makes (hem
weighted averages. The same method was used in computing average
hours.
Index numbers are computed (o make comparisons easier as
be(ween years. They are only percentages which show (he increase
or decrease in all other years as compared with one year selected as
the base. In most of (he (ables 1913 is taken as (he base. In other
tables 1907, (he first year of (his series of reports, is taken as the base.
The index numbers for rates have been ob(ained by computing
ratios from the rates for each two successive years and, beginning




EXPLANATION OF TERMS AND METHODS

77

with the base year, com pounding the ratios each year. The ratio
of the 1914 rate to the 1913 rate is the index number for 1914. The
index number for 1914 thus found, multiplied by the ratio of 1915
to 1914, gives the index number for 1915, etc.
In the earlier years the ratio was based on the average as computed
from identical unions that reported for both years, old quotations
dropping out and new quotations coming in being omitted from the
average. In the later years the averages are based on all data
received each year.
The same method was used in computing index numbers of hours
and of wages per full-time week.
In computing the general index number when an industry is added
or omitted the ratio is based on the data for identical industries.
Here it is not a question of a trade or an industry coming into or
passing out of existence, but a question of discontinuing or taking on
an industry that is in existence. To illustrate, the metal industry and
the millwork industry were omitted in 1925 and have been since, as it
was known that more representative data for these two industries
could be obtained from establishment pay rolls. These trades were
covered in 1924 and earlier years and entered into the general index
for all trades in those years. Before computing the general index
for 1925 a new grand average was computed for all trade groups,
with these trade groups omitted. Then the ratio between 1924 and
1925 for all the remaining trade groups combined was computed and
the general index for 1924 was multiplied by this ratio to get the
general index for 1925.
Caution should be used in considering these index numbers. The
result obtained by a subtraction of index numbers does not repre­
sent the per cent of increase or decrease between the different years.
For example, referring to page 16, the index number of bakers’
rates of wages per week in 1907 was 85.1 as compared with 257.1
in 1930 making an increase of 172.0 points in the index number.
This 172.0 is 202.2 per cent of 85.1, thus making the increase in 1930
over 1907, 202.2 per cent as shown in Table 5,

[In some instances the rate for overtime and for Sunday and holidays is indicated by figures closely followed by the letter c, which means that the amount given is the rate in cents
per hour. The rate shown for overtime is for the primary overtime only, secondary and other further rates being considered of small importance. When overtime work fe pro­
hibited it is indicated by “ Pro.” When no statement is given for 1929 there was no union or, if a union, no effective scale. The few cases in which the day of rest is other than
Sunday have been tabulated as Sunday, and those in which the short day is other than Saturday have been tabulated as Saturday]

PART 2
OTHER TRADES
As explained in the introduction to this report, Part 2 presents the
union scales of wages and hours of labor for trades which have
recently been added to the bureau’s survey of union wages. These
added trades are presented separately for the following reasons: (1)
The trades included in Part 1 are limited to those normally occurring
in the large cities and for which the wage scales are in a form permit­
ting uniform tabulation. As a result it is possible to combine these
data so as to derive average wages and hours, and index numbers
thereof, for various groups of cities and trades, over a series of years.
(2) Part 2 includes trades added to the bureau’s survey which,
whether because of their more complicated wage scales or for other
reasons, do not permit of combination for the present at least, with
the data given in Part 1.
The data presented in this second part were derived from a com­
plete survey of all organized trades in 18 cities and by correspondence
with, or personal visits to, those organizations which are of a noncity
character—such as those concerned with railroads and mining. The
cities covered by the survey referred to are:
Baltimore.
Birmingham.
Boston.
Butte.
Chicago.
Cleveland.

Dallas.
Denver.
Jacksonville.
Kansas City.
New Orleans.
New York.

Philadelphia.
Pittsburgh.
Providence.
San Francisco.
Seattle.
St. Louis.

For each of the organizations concerned, every effort was made to
secure the prevailing scales of wages ana hours or representative
examples of such scales. In a few cases the organizations were unable
or unwilling to furnish this information, but these exceptions were
very few, and on the whole the information in Part 2 combined with
that in Part 1 gives a fairly complete picture of the prevailing union
scales in force in the organized trades of this country.
In the wage presentation of Part 2 time rates are shown wherever
such are available. Otherwise, sample piece rates are given and in a
few cases estimated earnings under these piece rates are quoted. In
general, however, it is to be noted that union rates are m inim um
rates and in many cases are considerably below actual earnings.
The total membership of the organizations presented in Part 2 is
slightly less than 1,000,000,

TRANSPORTATION

Information regarding wage rates and hours of labor was secured
for the principal labor organizations of the steam railroads. These
data were furnished by officials of the national organizations except
in a few cases where it was found more practicable to obtain data
from officiate of local unions in selected cities.
BAILWAY CARMEN

Union rates of wages of railroad carmen shown in Table 5 are
practically the same on all railroads with which the Brotherhood of
Railway Carmen has working agreements. For that reason it is
deemed unnecessary to specify rates for the various railroads. For
rates for the New York Central Railroad add 1 cent per hour to the
rates given in the table.

TRANSPORTATION

In the case of conductors and trainmen in passenger service, the
daily rate is computed from an average run of 150 miles. Thus, a
conductor would receive one hundred and fifty times the mile rate
of 4.8 cents, or $7,20; this is his minimum daily rate, even though
the run may be less than 150 miles. If his run exceeds 150 miles,
he is paid tne specified rate per mile for each mile of the run.
However, if the monthly earnings of regularly assigned passenger
trainmen from guaranties, mileage, overtime, and other rates do not
yield the average daily amounts given below, it is provided that for
each day that the trainmen are on duty they shall be paid such
daily rates.

In the freight service “ 100 miles or less, eight hours or less, straight­
away or turnaround” constitute a day’s work, and all runs in excess
of 100 miles are paid for at the regular mileage rate.
The provisions for overtime in the passenger service read as
follows:
(a) Trainmen on short turnaround passenger runs, no single trip of which
exceeds 80 miles, including suburban and branch line service, shall be paid
overtime for all time actually on duty, or held for duty in excess of 8 hours
(computed on each run from the time required to report for duty to the end
of that run) within 10 consecutive hours; and also for all time in excess of 10
consecutive hours computed continuously from the time first required to report
to the final release at the end of the last run. Time shall be counted as con­
tinuous service in all cases where the interval of release from duty at any point
does not exceed one hour. This rule applies regardless of mileage made.
For calculating overtime under this rule the management may designate the
initial trip.
(b) Trainmen on other passenger runs shall be paid overtime on a speed basis
of 20 miles per hour computed continuously from the time required to report
for duty until released at the end of last run. Overtime shall be computed on
the basis of actual overtime worked or held for duty, except that when the
minimum day is paid for the service performed overtime shaft not accrue until
the expiration of 7 hours and 30 minutes from time of first reporting for duty.
(c) Overtime in all passenger service shall be paid for on the minute basis at
a rate per hour of not less than one-eighth of the daily rate herein provided.

In the freight service it is provided that—
(b) On runs of 100 miles or less overtime will begin at the expiration of eight
hours; on runs of over 100 miles overtime will begin when the time on duty
exceeds the miles run divided by 12%. Overtime shall be paid for on the minute
basis, at a rate per hour of three-sixteenths of the daily rate.
(c) Road conductors and trainmen performing more than one class of road
service in a day or trip will be paid for the entire service at the highest rate
applicable to any class of service performed. The overtime basis for the rate
paid will apply for the entire trip.

FISHING
DEEP-SEA FISHING

Members of the Deep Sea Fishermen’s Union of the Pacific are
employed on vessels engaged in deep-sea fishing only and not in
fishing for canneries, which is of a seasonal character.
No hours are set by their agreement and it is therefore fair to
assume that the hours are largely dictated by necessity. Wages are
paid on the pound basis, as follows: Halibut, 3% cents; black cod
(sablefish), 2 cents; and other acceptable varieties, 1 cents.
%
%
When deckhands are not obtainable the fishermen agree to do the
necessary deckhand’s work and receive therefor the deckhand’s wages.
The employer agrees that the fishermen shall be represented on the
scales by one of their own members and that they snail receive their
pay checks after vessels are in port 24 hours.
H
alibut fishing.—A second agreement of the same organization,
covering halibut fishing, covers all members of a crew except the
captain or an employee who owns one-fourth or more of a vessel.
The fishermen agree to pay their share for grub, fuel oils, cylinder
oils, cup greases, waste, ice, salt, and bait, and to keep the fishing
gear in good order and to replace lost and condemned fishing gear.
“ The share of the vessel shall be one-fifth of the gross stock except
when gear is lost.”



270

UNION SCALES OP WAGES AND HOUBS OF LABOB

The agreement provides that one fisherman approved by the cap­
tain shall attend the weighing of the fish and must, in the captain’s
absence, assume all responsibility therefor. Settlement is made (in
the port where the fish is sold) between the captain or his agent and
the fishermen. After the bills are paid, back bills are to be paid as
follows: When the share is $25 or less, nothing shall be taken out;
when the share is over $25, one-half of the amount from $25 to the
full share shall be taken out. If the captain desires to fit out on a
cash basis, he shall be empowered to use the proceeds of the voyage
for this purpose. When money from the stock is used for cash pay­
ments, the members of the crew shall receive their share of whatever
discount may be allowed for such cash payments.
The agreement further provides that it is the duty of fishermen to
discharge fish “ from tackle to scale,” to head fish if required, to “ wash
out fish holds and decks,” and to keep living quarters sanitary.
SALMON FISHING

with the packers in the salmon industry is made a part of the shipping
articles between the members signing and the packers or association
of packers.

men may be called upon for “ work day or night (Sundays and holi­
days not excepted), according to the lawful orders of the captain,”
and for work on boats, lighters, vessels, in canneries, salteries, etc.,
but 48 hours constitute a week’s work before and after the fishing
season. The beginning and ending of the fishing season is determined
by the superintendent. Extra compensation is provided at 75 cents
per hour for any man working more than 48 hours during any week
or more than 11 hours in any 24, or on Sundays or holidays.
•Other provisions of the agreement relating to gill-net fishermen
include the following:
(а) Each gill-net fisherman shall receive in addition to the wages of $150 for
the run and all other moneys earned under this agreement 20 cents for each

(d) When boats are on the limit they may make one or more deliveries be­
tween midnight and midnight, but all boats must be discharged clean at the
receiving station in the presence of the tallymen. Accurate account of all salmon
discharged above limit to be kept by tallymen and such salmon shall be credited
pro rata to all boats short of the limit, but in no event shall any boat be credited
in excess of the limit except when detained as provided hereafter in this section.
Any boat short of the limit is permitted to receive from any other boats sufficient
salmon to fill the limit.
Any boat detained from delivering salmon at receiving station for more than
5 hours after haying there reported arrival shall be credited with 100 red salmon
for each hour’s detention, but not more than 1,200 salmon, in addition to all
salmon delivered on such day, shall be allowed for 24 hours’ detention. The

pensation shall be paid for salmon caught by boats transferred to another station.
(k) The basis of compensation of wages if paid by the case shall be a case of
