Executive Order 11329—Creating a Board of Inquiry to Report on a Labor Dispute Affecting the Shipbuilding and Repair Industries of the United States
WHEREAS, there exists a labor dispute between the Pacific Coast Shipbuilders' Association, Alameda, California, representing Lockheed Shipbuilding and Construction Company, Seattle, Washington, Bethlehem Steel Company, San Francisco, California, Lake Union Dry Docks Company, Seattle, Washington, Pacific Coast Engineering Company, Alameda, California, Albina Engine and Machine Works, Portland, Oregon, Northwest Marine Iron Works, Portland, Oregon, Todd Shipyards Corporation, Seattle, Washington and Alameda, California, Guy F. Atkinson Company, Portland, Oregon, Willamette Iron and Steel Company, Portland, Oregon, and certain of their employees represented by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, AFL-CIO; and
WHEREAS, such dispute has resulted in a strike which will, in my opinion, if permitted to continue, affect a substantial part of the shipbuilding and repair industries, which industries are engaged in trade, commerce, transportation, transmission, or communication among the several States or with foreign nations, or engaged in the production of goods for commerce, and which strike, if permitted to continue, will imperil the national safety:
Now THEREFORE, by virtue of the authority vested in me by Section 206 of the Labor-Management Relations Act of 1947 (61 Stat. 155; 29 U.S.C. 176), I hereby create a Board of Inquiry, consisting of Mr. J. Keith Mann, Chairman, Mr. George E. Reedy and Mr. Paul D. Hanlon, whom I appoint to inquire into the issues involved in this dispute.
The Board shall have powers and duties as set forth in Title II of such Act. The Board shall report to the President in accordance with the provisions of Section 206 of such Act on or before March 8, 1967.
Upon submission of its report, the Board shall continue in existence to perform such other functions as may be required under such Act.
