Portal Pay Bill Goes
To White House, With
Its Fate Uncertain
A bill to knock out claims for
billions of douars in portal pay
headed for an uncertain fate in
the White House today.
Republicans sounded a conten
tion that a veto would scuttle the
President's own campaign for lower
prices.
Administration supporters said
Mr. Truman should blackball the
measure on the ground that it would
weaken the Wage-Hour Act.
The bill would outlaw the bulk
of pending court claims totaling
$3,000,000,000 to $6,000,000,000 for
nonproductive time workers spent
under their employers control—such
as walking to their work stations.
As the Senate and House com
pleted action yesterday on a com
promise version, Chairmen Wiley
and Michener of the Senate and
House Judiciary Committees told
the President a veto would unsettle
business.
"Overnight thousands of business
and industrial concerns can be
plunged into such economic uncer
tainty as to considerably retard or
which now is within our grasp,"
they said in a joint statement.
Senator McGrath, Democrat, of
Rhode Island, who says Secretary
of Labor Schwellenbach will rec
ommend a veto, reiterated his be
lief that the bill would be a blow
at the Wage-Hour Act, which re
quires a wage of 40 cents an hour
in inter-State commerce, and time
and a half for all over a 40-hour
week.
As It reached the President's desk,
the bill was the re&ult of month
long discussions between Senate
and House members to compromise
conflicting versions approved by the
two chambers separately.
The final draft was approved by
a voice vote in the Senate and by
a 173-to-27 standing vote in the
House.
Major Clause· in Bill.
Its major provisions would :
1. Prohibit generally both exist
ing and future claims for portal-to
portal pay unless the claims are cov
ered by employer-worker contracts
or are recognized as valid by tra
dition or practice.
2. Authorize the compromise of
past and existing claims involving
disputes over amounts to pay if the
compromise meets minimum hourly
wage standards of 40 cent* for reg
ular time and 60 cents lor overtime.
). Prohibit compromising of fu
ture claims, and* place a two-year
limit on filing suits under existing
wage and hour laws. Past claims
would be covered by the State
statutes of limitations if filed within
1% days from the time the im
posed law becomes effective.
4. Prohibit the filing of group
claims by one worker unless he (rib
tains a writtpn order from each
worker.
5. Release employers from liabil
ity on past claims if "any Govern
ment agency" had by order, regula
tion or interpretation approved the
wage paid.
