Mr. JOHNSON. When a man sits down to bargain with whoever is your representative, or with yourself, do you really sit down and bargain—he wants so much, and you want to give him this, and that goes on or do you say, “For the work you are doing, you are entitled to $250 a month
Mr. GOLDIE. Most of those changes in the rates come voluntarily through the management. The man is notified that his work has been good, that he is entitled to more money, and he is given more money.
Mr. JOHNSON. That is all.
Mr. HARNESS. Speaking of the railway employees, they do not cperate under the Wagner Act, do they? Mr. GOLDIE. I cannot tell you that. Mr. HARNESS. They have their own act, the Railway Labor Act? Mr. GOLDIE. I believe they have; yes. Mr. HARNESS. That is all. The CHAIRMAN. Mr. Stewart?
Mr. STEWART. Do you notice any "slowdownness" in the increase of the hours from 40 to 48 a week?
Mr. GOLDIE. I have not noticed any, because we have been operating most of our departments for 48 hours, or a large percentage of them, for the last two years and a half.
Mr. STEWART. So, there has been no increase in slowdownness in production in your operations?
Mr. GOLDIE. 'No, sir. I may say that our operations are practically all on the incentive system,
The CHAIRMAN. I did not hear that.
Mr. GOLDIE. I say, practically all of our operations are on the incentive system.
Mr. STEWART. Do you pick out as foreman the men who present the best picture—the men who do the best job and who show the greatest ability and capacity to develop it?
Mr. GOLDIE. Yes.
Mr. STEWART. You do not draw your line of differentiation on the question whether a man came out of the union or was nonunion?
Mr. GOLDIE. Not at all.
Mr. STEWART. You just go back to the old American system of picking a good employee?
Mr. GOLDIE. Yes, sir.
