ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY

Detroit Edison was part of a large holding company called North American Edison Company. North American's stock had once been one of the twelve component stocks of the May 1896 original Dow Jones Industrial Average. North American Company was broken up by the Securities and Exchange Commission, following the United States Supreme Court decision of April 1, 1946.
After that Detroit Edison operated independently, and publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange, under the ticker symbol DTE through the mid-1990s. In early 1996, it became an operating subsidiary of the new holding company, DTE Energy Company, which replaced Detroit Edison Company on the stock exchange, and took over the trading ticker symbol.

COLLECTION DESCRIPTION

This was a voluntary arbitration proceeding with the arbitrator, Mr. Aaron Horowitz selected as the mutual choice of the parties from the American Arbi-tration Assn. Mr. Donald F. Kigar served as consultant for the company and Robert Reynolds for the union. Hearings were begun in Detroit on Deo. L4, 1953.
Issue: "Did the company violate the agreement by unilaterally transferring certain Production Dept. Maintenance employees of this named department into newly named Construction and Maintenance Department and merging them with employees of the last named department in a centralized maintenance group, all of which subjected a large number of employees to changes in wages, hours, and working conditions.
