Washington. Aug. 18. Hugh S.
Johnson, the NRA chief, about mid
night announced that an agreement
had been reached upon a code of fair
competition for the rich steel indus
The agreement had been read to
President Roosevelt over the tele
phone and was approved by him, in
addition to Johnson, the steel indus
try and the labor advisory board of
It provides a 40-hour work week
averaged over a three months' period,
with a maximum per employe of 48
hours and a six-day week.
On or after November 1, 1933, as
soon as proauction reacnes 60 per
cent capacity, the eight-hour day is
provided for all employes except su
pervisory, technical and emergency.
Wages Raised July 1
The agreement cited that a general
increase of 15 per cent had been
made in wages since July 1.
"Minimum wages fixed In the code
are estimated by steel companies to
exceed an average of 40 cents per
hour," the text of the agreement
"This results from the fact that
higher minimum wages than those
fixed in the code are paid to large
groups of common labor."
The agreement continued:
"Code to be effective for 90 days
as a trial period to determine effect.
NRA Board to Watch
"Provision for three representa
tives of NRA to receive full informa
tion, with access to necessary records.
to meet vith board of directors of
iron and steel institute upon admin
istration of code and advise the presi
dent so as to provide assurance that
code operation is in full compliance
with the law, providing adequate pro
tection of public interest and furnish
ing the basis for recommendation to
the president as to continuation or
modification of code after 90 days'
period of trial and determination of
results." i '' "; . ' ;
Announcement of the agreement
was made smilingly by Johnson short
ly after a six-hour session with the
steel magnates had broken up. 1
