JURISDICTION AWARDS OF THE BUILDING TRADES DEPARTMENT OF THE AMERICAN FEDERATION OF LABOR.
American Brotherhood of Cement Workers v. International Union of Hod Carriers and Building Laborers.
[Decision of the Tampa Convention, Building Trades Department of the American Federation of Labor, adopted October, 1909. See printed proceedings Tampa Convention, pp. 130-131.]
We, your committee, recommend that where there are existing agreements between the American Brotherhood of Cement Workers and International Union of Hod Carriers and Building Laborers, they shall remain the same, but we concede the right to the cement workers to control all laborers working exclusively at the cement industry. American Brotherhood Cement Workers v. Operative Plasterers' International Association.
Agreement entered into between the representatives of the Operative Plasterers' International Association and the American Brotherhood of Cement Workers at the headquarters of the building trades department on January 16, 1909:
The Operative Plasterers' International Association claims for its members all exterior and interior plastering, whether of stucco, cement, or any patent material, when done in and by the usual methods of plastering.
We contend the covering of all walls, ceilings, soffits, piers, colunins, or any other part of a construction of any sort, when any part of said construction is covered with any plastic material in the usual methods of plastering, is the work of the plasterers.
The above claim is recognized by the representatives of cement workers as not to apply to the construction of any concrete work in building erection or the forming or casting of asphalt or cement blocks, nor does the term "compo" employed in the above claim refer in any manner to concrete construction.
It is further agreed that sanitary base not to exceed 6 inches in height when run in connection with cement floor shall be the work of cement workers.
