The purpose of this article is to present briefly some aspects of the recent attempt at joint collective bargaining in the rubber industry. The writer will study the question of how joint bargaining was introduced into the rubber industry. He will describe the major parts of the two joint agreements successfully negotiated. He will present the attitudes of some large and small rubber companies toward these agreements and toward the prospects for further joint bargaining. Finally, he will discuss briefly some of the broader problems of industry-wide bargaining.
