75 NEGRO CARPENTERS TO
GET WORK IN TENNESSEE
An agreement that Negro union<
carpenters will receive the first 75
of an estimated 200 new carpentry
jobs in the construction of the
Volunteer Ordnance Works in
Tennessee was announced by Dr.
Robert C. Weaver, Chief of the
Negro Employment and Training
Branch, Labor Division, WPB.
This agreement wos reached on
March 10, 1942, by representatives
of Dr. Weaver’s office and the
President’s Committee on Fair
Employment Practice in a confer
ence with representative^ of Ne
gro and white carpenter’s locals in
Chattanooga, with contractors, the
War Department and the United
States Employment Service.
Forty-one Negro carpenters, in
cluding two foremen, are already
employed on the project which is

tion to the number already at work

ing the local labor supply,” he
said. “They insisted that the lo
cal labor market should be ex
hausted before outside carpenters
and other skilled workers were
imported for the job.”
The 75 Negro carpenters will be
referred to the job by Local 2216
of Chattanooga, who had complain
ed to the Negro Employment ami

dell Lowery .business agent of1
Local 2216, had resulted in an in
crease of colored carpenters to the

March 10 agreement.
Following subsequent comp
laints from the local, Dr. Weaver
