The article presents news concerning industrial arbitration in the United States as of July 1964. A company was found by Arbitrator Sidney A. Wolff to have violated the contract when it decided to change its filing system in a department and assigned employees from another department to work on a Saturday to complete the changeover. Employees from the department complained that the company had violated that section of the contract providing that each department arrange for the distribution of overtime within the particular department on an equitable basis. The company claimed it was under no obligation to assign the work in question to the complainants since it was not within their normal job duties. A dispute concerning an alleged oral understanding regarding the method to be followed by a company in recalling employees who were on strike was held by Arbitrator Sidney A. Wolff not to be arbitrable. Following a strike settlement, the company and union discussed the matter of recall of employees.
