ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY

This was a panel hearing conducted under the Disputes Procedures of the Wage Stabilization Board relating to the terms of a renewed contract between the parties. Since the American Locomotive Company was primarily a steel fabricating company, and its contract with the United Steelworkers of America did not expire until January 31, 1952, the parties agreed to con-tinua negotiations rather than take part in the hearings of the Steel Industry Board earlier in 1952.
But the parties were unable to reach an agreement and they returned to the Board. A procedural hearing was held in Washington, D. C. on April 22, 1952. At this meeting it was decided to hold separate hearings on each of the three cases before a single panel. The panel members were:
Public Members Donald K. Strauss, chairman William A. Hazell
Labor Members Benjamin Fischer James S. Killen
Industry Members Virgil Day
George Myers
The union presented a list of 22 demands, approximately the same issues involved in the Steel Industry Dispute; a general wage increase, a guaranteed annual wage, paid holidays, inequities, shift and geographical differeatials, overtime and improved vacations. One particular problem was the request by the union for a company wide contract which the company opposed on the ground that the plants were not similar.
Hearings were held in New York City from May 21, 1952 to June 27, 1952.
