ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY

Executive order of the President dated January 13, 1951, resulted in the appointment of an emergency board composed of Mr. David L. Cole, labor consultant of Paterson, N.J., as Chairman; Hon. Frank P. Douglass, former Chaiman of the national Mediation Board of Pine, Colorado; and Mr. Aaron Horvitz, Attorney of New York, N. Y.
Public hearings were begun in Washington, D.C. on January 25, l95l, and on January 29 the proceedings were moved to New York City. These hearings continued until April 27, 1951, and at the conclusion of the hearings. : the board met jointly with the parties, also separately, in an effort to secure a settlement of the disputes by mutual agreement but without success. The record consists of 4,770 pares of testimony and argument and 106 exhibits. Extension of tine to May 28, 195l, for report of the board was approved by the President. The report was made on May 25, 1951.
The complicated issues in dispute had been the subject of continuous negotiation and mediation, lasting almost 18 months, and had resulted in the taking of a strike vote. A major issue resulted from the REQUest of the Air Line Pilots Association to place limitations on the number of miles pilots would be required to fly each month, depending upon the speed of the the plane; other changes of rate formulae for pilots and copilots were in dispute, a total of 27 issues as broken down in the board's report.
In its report, the board recommended a sizeable increase for copilots, which will acerage $1,800 per year. The board did not recommend reduction in flying hours below what they now are. The board recommended increased vacation allowance for captains, a provision guaranteeing more free time for all pilots, a minimum-pay guarantee, improved sick leave, furlough allowance for poilots whith two ore more years' seniority, and increased meal allowances. Other recommendations included a no-strike clause to be made part of the new agreement and that machinery be established for submitting unsettled grievances over dismissals and interpretation of the contract to a form of arbitration.
