The Bureau of Labor Statistics conducts annual surveys of wage rates and weekly
straight-time hours of work for specified crafts or jobs in the construction, printing,
local transit, and local trucking industries. A biennial survey of grocery stores also is
included in this program. These studies present the wage rates in effect on July 1, as
reported to the Bureau by the appropriate local labor organization officials in each of
the 70 cities surveyed.
Preliminary listings of union wage rates and hours for printing trades employees in
each of the cities surveyed were issued before this bulletin. Copies of individual city
listings are available from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Washington, D.C.

This study of printing trades wage rates was conducted in the Bureau's Office of
Wages and Industrial Relations. Mary Kay Rieg of the Division of Occupational Wage
Structures prepared this bulletin, which provides a comprehensive account of the
current study and also includes indexes of wage rates for printing trades employees
from 1907-73.

Summary

Average union wage rates for printing trades workers
in large cities increased 6.3 percent between July 1, 1972,
and July 1, 1973. This increase was smaller than the 8percent advance reported a year earlier, and was the
smallest 1-year rise since 1967-68.
Union wage rates for printing trades workers averaged
$6.28 an hour on July 1, 1973. Day-shift workers in
commercial lithography shops had the highest average
hourly rate ($6.91). This compared with $6.43 for

ink only in the depressed image areas. Image transference
takes place when the paper against which the printing
plate is pressed drinks up ink from the depressions.
The fastest-growing of the three processes is litho­
graphic printing, in which image transference is accom­
plished from a plane or flat surface wrapped around a
drum, rather than from depressions or elevations on
the printing plate. The image area on the plate is chemi­
cally treated to accept printing ink; the nonimage area

it is pressed against a rubber surface or "blanket"
which accepts the image without wearing down the
surface of the printing plate as paper does in letterpress printing. It is the blanket that is then used to
impress the image onto paper, in an operation called
"offset".

Among the nine regions studied separately, the
highest average wage rates were recorded in the Middle
Atlantic and Great Lakes States. The lowest rates were
recorded in the Southwest. Grouped by population, the
largest cities (1 million or more) had the top wage levels,
and the smallest cities (100,000 to 250,000) had the
lowest. Among these size groups, however, considerable
overlapping

Stages o f p ro d u ctio n . The workers covered by this survey
are grouped according to their involvement in one of
the three major stages of production. (See chart.)

Type o f establishment. Workers studied were employed
in one of three types of printing establishments: (1) Book
and job shops, which print books and fill many different
types of small printing orders; (2) newspaper shops,
which produce large volumes of newsprint rapidly at
very low cost per unit; and (3) commercial lithographic
shops which mass-produce items of high quality (e.g.,
catalogs, magazines, etc.) for wide distribution.
Processes. Three major printing processes are in common

These occupations include: hand and machine composi­
tors, photoengravers, stereotypers, electrotypers, litho­
graphic artists, camera operators,1 strippers, and platemakers.
The pressroom group consists of press operators,1
and press assistants and feeders. This group mounts the

and ink, supervises the quality of the printing done,
and performs routine maintenance on the pressroom

use today. The oldest and most widely found is the relief
or letterpress method, in which the image to be printed
is carried on a surface raised above the rest of the
printing plate. The

image areas are inked, and the

printing plate is pressed against paper and removed,
leaving the ink image on the paper to dry. In the
intaglio, or gravure process, the image to be printed is
depressed into the surface of the printing plate. The
entire surface of the plate is flooded with ink, then



For purposes of this study, job titles that denote sex
stereotypes, such as cameramen or pressmen, have been retained
in the tables where they refer specifically to labor-management
contract terminology. When occupational classifications describe
work duties in the generic sence, such as workers operating
printing presses, and not as a contract term, they have been
changed in the text to eliminate the sex stereotype, e.g., press
operators for pressmen and camera operators for cameramen.

The finishing group is made up of bookbinders,
bindery workers, and mailers. They bind the printed
pages into books and pamphlets, assemble newspapers
and magazines, or otherwise prepare printed materials
for distribution.
Developments in printing equipment during recent
years are producing significant changes in the size and
occupational composition of the industry's work force.2
These technological innovations include: Computers
which automatically justify lines of text; phototypeset­
ting machines, which enable a specially trained typist to
set text in film without the expensive manufacture of

Survey findings
Wage trends. On July 1, 1973, union wage rates for
printing trades workers in cities of 100,000 inhabi­
tants or more averaged $6.28 an hour— an advance of
6.3 percent, or 37 cents, over the figure for the preceding
year. This percentage increase, down from the 8.0
percent recorded for the year ending July 1, 1972,
brought the Bureau's index of straight-time union wage
rates for all printing trades to 153.3 (1967=100). The
wage index for book and job workers was 155.1, and for
newspaper workers it was 152.2. (See table 1.)

growth in demand for printed material.
Moreover, automation modifies, and in some cases
lowers, skill requirements for printing trades workers.
Functions which formerly called for extensive hand
crafting— the setting of metallic type, the etching of
plates, and the binding of books, to name a few— are
largely carried out today by a smaller work force trained
in computer programming, keypunching, monitoring of
electronic equipment, and the operation of various
specialized machines.

During the July 1972-73 period, about four-fifths
of the workers studied received hourly wage rate increases.
Approximately one-third of all workers had hourly gains
of less than 7 percent. A similar proportion received
between 7 and 11 percent. Relatively few increases
exceeded 15 percent. (See table 8.)
The average increase in book and job shops was 7.4
percent, compared with 5.6 percent in newspapers and
5.5 percent in commercial lithography shops. (See table
5.) Advances in pay rates over the year ended July 1,
1973, were recorded for a larger percentage of book and
job workers (94 percent) than for those in either the
newspaper (70 percent) or the commercial lithographic
field (76 percent). During this period, Pay Board roll­
backs of contract wage rates negotiated prior to July 1,
1972, in the New York newspaper industry resulted in
actual wage declines for approximately 9 percent of all
newspaper workers covered by the study.

on July 1, 1973, were reported on night shifts. Nation­
wide, the differential for nightwork in newspaper

boosted the average for that industry branch as noted

plants averaged 34 cents an hour. Night-shift differentials
were found in all 66 cities with unionized newspaper
trades, but the size of such differentials and the pro­
portion of workers receiving them varied by city
and trade.
Finally, differences among industry branch averages
result from the way workers are distributed among the
cities surveyed, as well as from industry pay relationships
within cities. Text table 2 illustrates variations in industry
pay relationships and employment mix among the six
largest cities studied (those having 1 million inhabitants
or more). It shows, for example, that pay averages in
lithography and newspaper establishments were about

previously. Over half of the newspaper workers studied

the same for the six largest cities combined, compared

in low-paying, semiskilled bindery worker occupations,
performing a number of routine tasks unique to that
industry branch. Had the wage rates of these workers been
excluded, the July 1973 average for book and job shops
would have been raised approximately 50 cents an hour.
Newspaper and commercial lithographic operations, on

Although lithography was typically the highest paying
industry branch, averages for newspaper establishments
were reported highest in two of the largest cities—
New York and Detroit. Also in New York, where the
largest concentration of printing trades workers was
found, average wage rates for workers in book and job
shops exceeded those for workers in commercial litho­
graphy by nearly 9 percent, a marked contrast to their
relationships in the other five largest cities, and in the

of 100,000 to 250,000. However, considerable over­
lapping of individual city averages among population
groupings in the survey was noted. For example,
Fresno, a city in the smallest size grouping studied,
recorded the second highest city average in the survey
($7.03). On the other hand, wage rates in Houston, one
of the six largest cities, averaged less ($5.61) than those
in 21 of the 43 cities studied with fewer than 500,000
inhabitants.

$3.85 per hour for semiskilled bindery workers to $7.16
for photoengravers. The range of daywork rates in news­
papers was $5.92 for mailers to $6.85 for photoengravers.

Also, a particular craft may not be covered by a collec­

excluded from the survey, whereas all or part of the
workers in the craft may be covered in other cities. In
addition, certain types of work are more prevalent in

book and job and lithography branches, wage rate
averages were developed only from the daywork (first
shift) rates weighted by union members at these rates;

Information presented in this bulletin is based on
union rates in effect on July 1, 1973, for approximately
109.000 printing trades workers in 70 cities. Data were
obtained primarily from local union officials by mail
questionnaire; in some instances, Bureau economists
visited local union officials to obtain the desired
information.
The survey was designed to reflect union wage rates
of printing industry employees in all cities of 100,000
inhabitants or more, excluding Honolulu, and is based
on the 1970 Census of Population. All cities that had
500.000 inhabitants or more were included, as were
most cities w ith ’ 250,000 to 500,000 inhabitants. Data




in the newspaper branch, members at nightwork or
second shift rates were also included in the averages.
Rates for third or "lobster" shifts, however, are excluded
from the scope of this survey.
These averages were not designed for precise year-toyear comparisons because of fluctuations in membership
in the classifications studied. Average cents-per-hour
and percent changes from July 1, 1972 to July 1, 1973,
however, were based on comparable quotations for
the various job classifications in both periods, and
weighted by the memberships reported for the current
(1973) survey. The index series, designed for trend
purposes, was constructed similarly.
