COLLECTIVE BARGAINING FOR FISHERMEN

MONDAY, OCTOBER 15, 1962

U.S. SENATE,

COMMITTEE ON COMMERCE,
SUBCOMMITTEE ON MERCHANT MARINE AND FISHERIES,

Seattle, Wash. The subcommittee met at 9:45 a.m., in the courtroom of the circuit court of appeals, Seattle, Wash., Hon. E. L. (Bob) Bartlett presiding

Senator BARTLETT. The committee will come to order.

The hearings today are concerned with S. 3093. This bill was introduced by Senator Magnuson, chairman of the committee, in April last. I joined in cosponsorship.

By the way, Senator Magnuson, who is chairman of the Commerce Committee, is expected here in a few minutes for a brief time. He has other engagements.

The committee is pleased to have sitting with it today Congressman Thomas Pelly, of Seattle, who has a like bill in the House and who will participate in the hearing today.

The bill under consideration seeks to amend the Fisheries Marketing Act of 1934, Public Law 464 in the 73d Congress.

That act was originally designed to provide fishermen with the right of self-association for cooperative improvements of their condition.

This bill has for its purpose making clear the fact that fishermen's organizations, regardless of their technical legal status, would have a voice in the ex-vessel sale of fish or other aquatic products on which the livelihood of their members depends.

I should like to say that insofar as possible it is hoped that testimoney will be confined here and in subsequent hearings in Alaska to this particular bill. There is a whole wide range of fishery subjects, I know, which could be brought under discussion, and comment on them, of course, will not be barred. But because of the time limitations we do hope that there will be an emphasis on this bill as contrasted with anything else.

Legislation on this subject to attack the problem has been introduced in Congress on several earlier occasions. Hearings were held by me on a similar bill last year at several points in Alaska, and a helpful record was made at that time.
