The first document outlines the events and employment data forming the basis of the chairman's decision on a dispute beginning
on October 23, 1943, between the San Pedro Local of the International Longshoremen's and Warehousemen's Union and the Maritime
Industry Board. The rule proposed by the union was to repair perceived disparity of earning and unequal work opportunity by
reassigning men to employers every fourteen days. Statistics for the carloaders are cited and advantages for those who work
steadily versus those who are rotated are discussed. Document two is a decision pertaining to a proposal made by the San Pedro
Joint Local Labor Relations Committee for added pay for holdmen who are called to do bull rope work. The document defines
bull rope work and burton work and the hazards involved in both jobs.
