OPERATIVE PLASTERERS' INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION.

ORIGINAL CHARTER CLAIM AND JURISDICTION.

All plastering, plain and ornamental, when done with stucco, cement, lime mortars, or patent materials, artificial marblework, and compo work in all its branches.

All moldings in permanent buildings must be run in place and the ornament placed and pointed by practical plasterers.

(Practical plasterers are men who are proficient in the use of the hawk and trowel and other implements or tools of the trade.)

No member of this association will be allowed to put up staff that can be run. All staff shall be classed as plastering.

Believing that the Operative Plasterers' International Association is an organization that stands for the protection and advancement of the plastering industry throughout the United States and Canada, whether it is done by its old and usual system of plastering or for the purpose of ornamental decoration. And considering that the aforesaid industry and products could not be controlled for the best interests of the members of the Operative Plasterers' International Association unless the producers of any of the said industries are likewise controlled by the same organization. That it shall be the duty of every local affiliated with the Operative Plasterers' International Association to organize as speedily as possible all workers following any of the branches of the plastering trade, and especially those that follow the ornamental plastering branch of the trade, including the modelers, by either forming new locals or by taking them into their own locals.

It shall be the duty of the organizers, wherever possible, to organize locals of modelers, and when any locality has not sufficient modelers to form a local make all effort to have them affiliate with local Operative Plasterers' International Association.

No member of this association shall be allowed to use models or cast from models unless same have been made by modelers affiliated with the Operative Plasterers' International Association. In localities where no union modelers are employed, or boss modeler does his own modeling, members of Operative Plasterers' International Association can handle work as furnished, but under no condition shall we recognize any combination of modelers to enter a combination of partnership to defeat the provisions of this act.

All models produced by members of the Operative Plasterers' International Association must bear an embossed stamp that will reproduce itself on all casts taken from such models, said stamp to be copyrighted and bear a number that will designate the employer using same.

No members of the Operative Plasterers’ International Association shall use or handle any models or casts that do not bear such stamp.

No union modeler or shop hand shall do work for any contractor who is unfair to the Operative Plasterers' International Association.

All interior or exterior plastering of cement, stucco, stone imitation, or any patent material, whether cast or worked in place, also corner beads when stuck, must be done by practical plasterers of the Operative Plasterers' International Association. This includes the plastering and finishing with hot composition material in vats, compartments, or wherever applied; also the setting in place of cork plates, and the application of any plastic material to the same must be done by members of the Operative Plasterers' International Association who are practical plasterers.

It is agreed that on walls upon which a foundation or base coat is put on must be put on by the plasterer, and ample room shall be allowed for a final coat of not less than three-eighths of an inch to be put on by the tile layer so as to give sufficient bed for the placing or sticking of tile or mosaic.

American Brotherhood Cement Workers v. Operative Plasterers' International Association.

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, columns, 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.

Second. It is also agreed that the plasterers shall use only sand and cement in preparation of walls for work above stipulated.
