ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY

The foundation for this proceedings was to be found in a so-called moratorium provision in the agreements signed by the parties in 1951 and 1952. The moratoruim provided for wage adjustments when the wage stabilization policy permitted so-called annual improvement wage increases. A referee was to be appointed by the President if the parties were unable to agree that a wage increase was justified. The President appointed Paul N. Guthrie as referee on December 1, 1952. The referee decided that this proceeding had power to determine only three issues. First, whether further wage increases were justified; second, If so, what such increases should be; and third, the effective date thereof. Hearings were held and voluminous data accumulated according to the report, but this collection contains only the printed items listed below.
