Union Wages and Hours of Motortruck Drivers and Help ers,
July 1, 1948
Summary
Basic hourly contract rates for organized motor­
truck drivers and their helpers increased 9 percent
between July 1, 1947 and July 1, 1948 raising the
hourly rate index (June 1,1939=100)1to 175.1. This
over-all increase represented an 11-cents-an-hour
gain for drivers and helpers, bringing the levels of
minimum hourly pay to $1.43 for drivers and $1.182
for helpers. Through contract negotiations during
the 1-year period, over half of the drivers and helpers
were working under agreements providing minimum
hourly scales of at least $1.45 and $1.25, respectively.
Numerous increases have become effective since
July 1,1948, the date to which the survey relates.
Straight-time hours for union motortruck drivers
and helpers dropped approximately 1 percent be­
tween July 1, 1947, and July 1, 1948. On July 1,
1948, over two-thirds of the members were covered
by agreements stipulating a 40-hour straight-time
workweek.

Warehousemen and Helpers of America (AFL); in
some cities they were secured from local union offi­
cials by Bureau field representatives.
Trend of Union Wage Rates and Weekly Honrs
Union wage scales advanced 75 percent between
June 1, 1939 and July 1, 1948, two-thirds of the
increase having occurred after YJ-day. In June
1939, agreements providing minimum scales of $1 or
more an hour applied to only 14 percent of the
drivers, whereas in 1945 such rates were received by
about half of these workers. By July 1, 1948, twothirds of the drivers were covered by contracts
specifying minimum hourly scales of at least $1.35.
In 1939, minimum rates for three-fourths of the
helpers varied from 50 to 80 cents an hour, and in
1945 two-thirds of the workers in the helper category
were receiving basic rates of 70 to 95 cents. On
July 1, 1948, the majority of helpers had scales
ranging from $1.15 to $1.35, with about 12 percent
employed at rates under 95 cents an hour.

Scope and Method
This bulletin is based on effective union scales as
of July 1, 1948, for 235,394 motortruck drivers and
34,682 helpers engaged in local trucking in 77 cities,
ranging in population from 40,000 to over 1,000,000.
Over-the-road drivers and local city drivers paid on
a mileage or commission basis were excluded from
the study. The data for the study were primarily
obtained from regional representatives of the Inter­
national Brotherhood of Teamsters, Chauffeurs,

T able 3.— Percentage distribution of union motortruck drivers
and helpers, by hourly wage rate, July 1,1948

Straight-time hours for union motortruck drivers
and helpers dropped approximately 1 percent be­
tween July 1,1947, and July 1,1948. The tendency
toward a shorter workweek has been fairly constant
since 1937, the first year for which comparable data
are available. On July 1, 1948, over two-thirds of
the union drivers and helpers were covered by agree­
ments stipulating a 40-hour straight-time workweek.
Relatively few contracts (affecting less than 5 per­
cent of the total membership) specified work sched­
ules in excess of 48 hours at straight-time pay. In
contrast, workweeks of 48 hours or more before
premium rates became effective applied to over half
of the drivers and helpers in July 1945 and to twothirds in June 1940.

Wage-Rate Changes, 1947-48
More than three-fourths of the drivers received
wage advances resulting from contract negotiations
during the year from July 1, 1947 to July 1, 1948.
Basic wage rates of half of the drivers included in
the study were increased from 5 to 15 percent.
Agreements covering over 50 percent of the drivers
specified minimum scales of at least $1.45 an hour
on July 1, 1948, whereas on July 1, 1947, only 3 out
of 10 drivers had such scales.
Approximately 85 percent of the truck drivers’
helpers received wage boosts during the 1-year
period. Well over half of the helpers (55 percent),
benefited by increases varying from 5 to 15 percent,
while the pay rates of one-fifth rose from 15 to 25
percent above those in 1947. On July 1, 1948, the
majority of the helpers were working under agree­
ments providing minimum scales of $1.25 or more
an hour. In the preceding year, such rates applied
to only one-fifth of these workers.

Distribution of Workers by Hourly Wage Rates
On July 1, 1948, the average hourly rate for
organized motortruck drivers in the 77 cities studied
was $1.43; helpers averaged $1.18 and the two
groups combined $1.40. Only 2 percent of all the
drivers covered in the present survey had basic
scales under $1; one-fourth of them fell in the
interval of $1.30 to $1.45, while two-fifths were
receiving scales of $1.50 or better. Minimum scales
for helpers ranged from 52 cents to $1.79. Hourly
rates for over 75 percent of these workers were
concentrated between 99 cents and $1.50.

($1.72), Seattle ($1,668), and Los Angeles ($1.60).
In nine other cities, the wage levels were in excess of
the general average ($1.43) for all cities combined.
Only seven cities, six in the south and one in New
England, had average hourly scales of less than $1.
Increases in wage levels for drivers between July 1,
1947 and July 1, 1948 ranged from 3 cents in New
Orleans to 24 cents in Phoenix. Cincinnati was the
only other city which showed a gain of more than
20 cents. Wage advances of 10 cents or more an
hour were negotiated during the year in 54 of the 77
cities included in the study.
Average hourly rates for helpers on July 1, 1948
varied from 63 cents in Charleston, S. C., to $1.64
in Oakland. Spokane, San Francisco, and Seattle
were the only other cities in which average rates
exceeded $1.50 an hour. Twenty-six cities had wage
levels higher than the general average of $1.18 for
all cities.
Between July 1, 1947 and July 1, 1948, average
rates for helpers advanced from 1 cent in Syracuse
to 22 cents in Spokane. In 49 cities, wage scales
increased at least 10 cents an hour since July 1,1947.

Wage-Rate Increases After July 19 19483
Available information, though limited, indicates
that numerous increases have become effective since
July 1, 1948, the date to which the survey relates.
For example, between this date and December 31,
1948, wage increases ranging from 10 to 22J^ cents
an hour were negotiated for approximately 18,000
truck drivers and helpers in New York City. Con­
tract renewals in Newark and Milwaukee advanced
the basic hourly rates of 4,500 motortruck workers
by 15 cents. Wage scales of 3,000 drivers and helpers
employed by Baltimore trucking companies were
raised 14 cents an hour. Increases of 13 cents be­
came effective since July 1, 1948, for members of
some local unions in Buffalo, Philadelphia, and
Washington, D. C. Wage boosts from 7 to 22)^
cents were reported for several other cities.8

1 Less than 0.05 of 1 percent.

City Wage Levels
Because of variations in size and type of trucks
and commodities handled, there is a wide range of
rates within a city. Classifications of drivers and
drivers' helpers differ considerably from one city to
another. This fact accounts partly for intercity
differences in rate levels. The relative position of
the wage level for a particular city in comparison
with others also depends upon city size and its
geographical location.
On July 1, 1948, average hourly rates for drivers
ranged from 95 cents in New Orleans to $1.74 in
Oakland, Calif. The next three top ranking cities




8 As partial information only is available on wage changes since July 1,
1948, no attempt has been made to estimate their effect on rate levels in
this report.

1 Does not include drivers paid on a commission or mileage basis.
2 Based on all rates reported for July 1, 1948; individual rates weighted by number of union members working at each rate.
3 Based on comparable rates reported for July 1, 1947 and July 1, 1948; 1948 membership used as the weighting factor for both years.
4 Includes Rock Island and Moline, 111., and Davenport, Iowa.

All effective scales were listed and the letters “A,”
“B,” “C,” etc., were used to designate the different
quotations. The sequence of the letters does not
indicate the relative importance of the quotations or
unions so designated.
Union scales are defined as the minimum wage
rates or maximum schedule of hours agreed upon
through collective bargaining by employers and
trade unions. Rates in excess of the agreed mini­
mum which may be paid to union members because
of long service, for special qualifications, or for other
reasons are not included.

Listing of Union Scales, by City
Tables 7 presents union scales of wages per hour
and hours per week reported to be in effect on July 1,
1948, and July 1, 1947, for each classification of
truck drivers and helpers in each of the cities included
in the survey. In some cases, two or more scales for
the same classification in the same city are shown.
This occurs when two different local unions have
different scales for the same classification, or when
a particular union has several agreements with
different employers, or when both situations exist.
