At a meeting of the executive committee of Shochtim Union Local 440, organization of kosher poultry slaughterers, a resolution was adopted backing the Kashruth Association in any move it may take to enforce Kashruth, it was announced yesterday.

The resolution came after the Kashruth Association decided at a meeting at the Hotel Pennsylvania to place a ban on all poultry if the poultry market owners do not accept the decision of Judge Otto A. Rosalsky, the Mayor mediator in recent poultry market difficulties, by October 8.

Judge Rosalsky’s decision provides for establishment of rabbinical supervision of markets under the control of the Kashruth Association.

It also contains provisions for attachment of tags to kosher-killed chickens to attest to their having been killed in accordance with the Jewish ritual, a maximum of 12,000 pounds of poultry weekly to be killed by each shochet and a minimum wage of $45 for shochtim.
