JURISDICTION AWARDS OF THE BUILDING TRADES DEPARTMENT OF THE AMERICAN
International Union of Marble-Workers v. United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners-
Building of scaffolding for marble-workers where carpenters' tools are not required belongs to the marble-workers.
But where carpenters' tools are required, then the work belongs to the carpenters. 97394°-Bull. 124-13-5
Sheet Metal Workers' International Alliance v. United Brotherhood of Carpenters and
Under a decision by the Tampa Convention of the Building Trades Department, the right of manufacturing and erecting of all metal door and trim was conceded to the sheet-metal workers.
Bridge and Structural Iron Workers v. United Brotherhood Carpenters and Joiners.
The Bridge and Structural Iron Workers claim the erection and removal of all necessary false work, but as this is only of temporary nature and refers more particularly to the erection and construction of steel and iron bridges, it was conceded that this comes properly under the claim of jurisdiction of the ironworkers.
NOTE. The above refers to the erection and construction of steel and iron bridges, and not to false work in or around buildings.
Derricks and travelers and the handling and operation of same belong to the ironworkers.
The framing of travelers and derricks where wood is used belongs to the carpenters. SCAFFOLDING.-As no framing is necessary in the construction of scaffolding for the ironworkers, any more than to throw timbers or planking from one beam or girder to another, or hang same by means of rope or chain, and as the ironworkers are under heavy expenses in the payment of disability claims, and death claims as well, resulting very often from the manner in which scaffolding is erected, they decided to erect their own scaffolding in their own way, and will not work on scaffolding erected by other men, be they mechanics or laborers. But where framing is necessary with carpenter's tools then such framing work belongs to the carpenters.
PLACING OF MACHINERY IN POSITION.-As the placing of heavy machinery in position does not include the alignment, leveling, adjustment, and fitting up of said machinery ready for use, that being work that comes under the jurisdiction of the millwrights, United Brotherhood Carpenters and Joiners of America, no objection is raised by the United Brotherhood against the ironworkers placing heavy machinery on buildings where designated.
WHARF BUILDING AND DOCK BUILDING.-The ironworkers do not claim jurisdiction over wharf and dock building where same is constructed solely of wood, but where iron is used, and sheds built of corrugated iron, they claim that part.
On this matter we agree that where wooden beams and timbers are used, with heavy planking and flooring, that same belongs to the carpenters, but where iron girders, iron columns, steel trusses are used, or ironwork of any form, same belongs to the ironworkers solely.
SETTING OF SEATS IN PUBLIC BUILDINGS.-All metal or partly metal seats fastened to metal-the assembling and setting of same-is conceded to the ironworkers, and all seats fastened to wood-the assembling and setting of same-is conceded to the carpenters.
KALAMINE AND IRON DOORS.-The dispute at issue in the matter of hanging kalamine and iron doors was laid over for further investigation by the representatives of both organizations, so that a satisfactory adjustment of the disputed points may be arrived at if possible.
Hod Carriers and Building Laborers v. United Brotherhood Carpenters and Joiners of America.
BUILDING OF SCAFFOLDING.-The building of scaffolding for plasterers, bricklayers, and masons where carpenter's tools are not required, where such scaffolding is not framed, spliced, bored, nailed, or put together in such manner requiring skilled labor,
belongs to the laborers' organization, but where scaffolding is built and where carpenter's tools are required, then the work belongs to the carpenters.
THE BUILDING AND SETTING OF CENTERS.-The building and setting of centers where scaffold plank is used exclusively on flat floor arches, and where carpenter's tools are not required belongs to the laborers.
All other forms, centers, and arches, where carpenter's tools are required, belong to the carpenters.
THE SHORING AND UNDERPINNING OF BUILDINGS.-The shoring and underpinning of buildings where carpenter's tools are required belong to the carpenters.

Amalgamated Sheet Metal Workers' Union v. Carpenters' Joint District CouncilSetting of iron or steel door trim and doors.
UMPIRE'S DECISION, APRIL 23, 1909.—The question presented has proved difficult to answer, but after reading all the evidence and the papers submitted to me I came to the conclusion that the setting of the iron or steel door trim and doors, samples of which were submitted to me, does not belong to the sheet metal workers. They are thick castings and not of the kind of sheet metal which the sheet metal workers handle and to which their tools are adapted. The samples before me are so thick that they have to be cut with a saw, and no doubt such castings may be even thicker. They could not be cut with a shears, or bent, or united, or worked, or soldered after the manner sheet metal is handled and fashioned. They are not contemplated by the rules which fix the domain of the sheet metal workers. The method and skill which the work requires does not belong to the craft of the sheet metal workers but to that of the carpenters. The substitution of metal for wood does not oust the carpenters. Even though the butts on which the trim and hinges are to be put be of iron or steel the case is the same.
MOTION OF EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE, MAY 5, 1909.-That the decision of Judge Gaynor [quoted above] in the case of the Sheet Metal Workers v. the Carpenters be received and placed on file and embodied in the minutes of the executive committee. (Unanimously carried.)
