each trade or occupation included in the trade schedule of the yard, and shall report to the commandant the result of such inquiries, and recommend rates for the payment of workmen of corresponding classes and trades at the yard.

3. The per diem pay shall be so established as to be a multiple of 8. When the per diem pay as ascertained by the board in any class of any trade or occupation is not divisible by 8, the amount shall be increased or decreased to the nearest multiple of 8, and when the amount is equidistant from two multiples of 8 the higher amount shall prevail in determining the pay.

4. When the board submits to the commandant the proposed semiannual schedule of wages, it shall also make a separate report, stating in full all changes from the previous approved schedule which involve an increase or decrease in the wages of any class of any trade or occupation, with the reasons therefor.

5. The commandant shall then forward, in duplicate, the proposed schedule of wages for the yard, as approved by himself, which will be made on the blank form designated “Navy-Yard Orders, Form I, Revised,” to the Department for its revision and approval; and when said schedule is approved by the Department it shall remain in force during the ensuing six months.

6. Whenever a necessity arises for workmen in a trade not authorized in the latest approved schedule of wages for a navy-yard, the trade can only be added to the schedule in accordance with the provisions of paragraph 21, of Navy-Yard Order No. 23, Revised. Trades thus allowed shall be included in the schedule of wages for the yard on and after the date of the Department's approval.

7. The semiannual schedule of wages shall not include the “civil establishment,” provided for by statute, or "special employments (Schedule D),” authorized by departmental order, the pay of which is fixed by the statute or order creating them, but shall be confined exclusively to the approved trade schedule of the yard, with approved additions to date.

Wherever in Navy-Yard Order No. 23, Revised, the phrase “quarterly schedule of wages” appears, the phrase "semiannual schedule of wages” will be substituted.

The commandants of the respective navy-yards and the boards appointed by them will hereafter be governed by the provisions of this order.

Secretary of the Navy.
