AWARDS AND DECISIONS OF THE GENERAL ARBITRATION BOARD OF GREATER NEW

Amalgamated Painters and Decorators v. The Iron League-Painting of structural

ironwork. CMPIRE's DecisioN, SEPTEMBER 7, 1904.-I find: I. That temporary painting, shop coats, priming coats, whether put on at the shop or at the building in process of erection, roughly applied as with large brushes, long-handled brushes, intended for the temporary protection of steel or iron work to be inclosed in the course of the construction, is unskilled work which may be done by nonpainter apprentices, laborers, etc., and that the defense is, thereiore sustained in his contention with regard to rough painting of steel and iron work for temporary protection.

There, however, it is rendered clear by the specifications or contracts that the painting is not merely for temporary protection, but for permanent protection, as for example, where specifications or contracts provide for several extra coats, make careful provisions as to the paint to be used, the colors, mixtures, etc., that the paint be carefully and evenly applied and thoroughly rubbed in, etc., or otherwise indicate and call for the work of a professional painter, I find:

II. That this painting, although the structural steel or iron work to be painted is intended to be inclosed, is clearly not for temporary but permanent protection and calls for skilled labor and is, therefore, according to the arbitration plan, work which must be done by union painters. Painters' District Council v. J. B. & J. M. Cornell-Erposed ironwork, applying of

Masons and Setters' Local No. 84–Setting curbing. DECISION OF EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE, SEPTEMBER 30, 1908.-We visited the Blackwells Island Bridge job and inspected the work referred to in the dispute.

The curbing is not being done with any structural stonework, and in our opinion this curbing belongs to the Amalgamated Bluestone Cutters, Flaggers, Curb and Bridge Setters and should be set by them.

The report of the subcommittee is concurred in, and the executive committee finds that the complaint of the Amalgamated Bluestone Cutters, Flaggers, Curb and Bridge Setters is sustained, and the Journeymen Stone Setters' Local No. 84 is directed to cease performing the work.
