STENGEL. T5he Plumber
All hoisting engineers throughout
Illinois reported for work at the
Secretary Treasurer William I)
Ryan of the miners, befcre his depart
ure for San Francisco to attend the
anntial convention of the National
Federation of Labor sfnr out a pr:iit
ed statement to the locals of Illinois.
It reviews the situation and also gives
in detail all arrangements which have
been made with the operators relative
to the engineers. After referring to
the meeting of the miners' executive
board and the attempt to induce the
engineers to come into their union the
Slalrinrnt by Mlnrra.
"A committee from our board went
and met the operators, stating to them
that we had made a proposition to
the engineers; that the engineers were
at that time considering it. and that
we had no proposition at that time to
make to the operators relative to the
engineers. Neither could we state to
the operators what the proposition was
that we had submitted to the engi
neers until after the engineers had
given us their answer. With this
statement to the operators, we with
drew, and in a short time met again
with the engineers, who informed us
that they had considered the proposi
tion made to them by our board anil
had decided to reject the same. They
stated that they were willing to sub
mit the question of wages to arbitra
tion, but that the assimilation of their
organization by the United Mine
Workers was something that they
could not agree to, giving as their rea
son that there was no authority vest
ed in them that would permit them to
take such steps. They could, how
ever, agree to arbitrate the question
of wages after the proposition had
been rejected by their membership
without getting any further advice or
instructions from the rank and file
Just here we desire briefly to state
our reasons for the policy pursued by
our executive board and sub-district
Cnn't Violate Aerrrnimt.
"Last spring the United Mine Work
ers were forced, through circumstanc
es, and by a majority vote of our or
ganization, to accept a reduction of
5.55 per cent, notwithstanding the fact
that a majority of the miners in this
district were in favor of a strike. Yet
we were forced to yield, and were not
permitted to come out on strike to pre
vent a reduction of our own wages.
and at this time we could not consist
ently sit idly by and see our mem
bers remain idle and, to all intents
and purposes, practically on strike,
violating their agreements, to prevent
the engineers from receiving the same
reduction that our people had receiv
ed, and to secure an agreement for
members of another organization,
whose wages had been materially ad
vanced and their working conditions
made much more acceptable, their
hours of labor considerably shorten
ed, and this practically through the
efforts of the United Mine Workers,
and who never received an advance
except as we secured an advance, and
surely they ought to be willing to ac
cept a reduction on the same basis.
"We have always contended that
every man who works in and around
the mine should be a member of our
organization: that at any mine, fac
tory or other establishment, where
men are employed to produce any one
commodity, they should all be mem
btjs of the same organization. They
have had no organization or standing
of any kind, except in the state of Illi
nois, the coal hoisting engineers in
other states being members of the
United Mine Workers of America, and
if we permit them the privilege of
having an organization when they
have no national standing, surely the
other trades above mentioned are en
titled to the same privilege when they
have an international organization and
who are affiliated with us through the
American Federation of Labor.
!Vecealty of l'nl.
"You can readily see that if all the
different crafts employed at the mine
were granted the same privileges that
the engineers have been enjoying, we
would have endless trouble, for the
reason that each organization insists
upon having a separate agreement,
which would so complicate matters
that the miners would never know
when the mine was liable to be thrown
idle on account of such a chaotic
condition existing. For the last few
years every possible effort has been
made by our organization to induce
the engineers to become members of
the United Mine Workers, but they,
together with the operators, have tak
en a firm position that we should have
no control whatever over the engi
neers and we have always been
faced with the possibility of a strike
; if we should attempt to force them
into our organization.
j "In fact, we have never had an
opportunity prior to the present time
,at which we could assimilate their
organization without a strike, or caus
ing them to violate their agreements,
because of the fact that their agree
ment neither began nor ended at t-.
time ours did. It is possible that had
their agreement ended at the sanv
tims our agreements did. this trou
ble would have arisen, but that a few
men should be able to tnrovr the en
tire membership of our organization
idle, thereby making the miners do
the real fighting, right in the middle
of our scale year and at the time of
the year when a few days work can
be secured by our membership, seems
to us to be the height of folly.
Juntify Their Action.
"We believe this to be our oppor
tunity and feel that we are entirely
justified in the action we have taken.
We would have liked very much to
have been able to say to the engineers
and operators that we were in accord
and sympathy with the stand that the
engineers had taken and that we
would refuse to work in those mines
until they got the scale asked for,
but, owing to the fact, as stated above,
that our people had already been
forced to accept a similar reduction,
and that our agreements were such
that we would be obliged to work and
mine coal regardless of whom the op
erator had at the throttle as engineer,
whether he was a union or a nonunion
man. just so he was a competent man.
holding a certificate by the state.
That being the case, the operators
would secure licensed engineers, and
they in all probability would work
without being members of any or
ganization, either the hoisting engi
neers nor the Urited Mine Work
ers, and in order to prevent anything
of this kind taking place, we deemed
it best to enter into negotiations with
the operators to formulate a scale
with the understanding that the engi
neers become members of the Unite!
Initiate EaiclneerN Free.
"Any engineer presenting a transfer
card from the Brotherhood of Coal
Hoisting Engineers, showing him to
be a member in good standing at the
time their strike was called, shall be
accepted free of initiation fee. Also
any engineer who claims he is unable
to secure his transfer card from that
organization, shall be accepted free
of initiation fee up to and including
the 14th of the present month. New
engineers who have not been members
of the Brotherhood of Coal Hoisting
Engineers or the United Mine Work
ers must pay the initiation fee of $10.
"The United Mine Workers have
endeavored at all times to safe-guard
the interests of our membership, and
we have always felt that what was .i
injury to one was the concern of all.
We assure you that as members of our
organization your interests will be our
interests; you will receive the same
careful consideration that has been
and will be given to all other mem
bers of our organization. Between the
engineers and the miners of this state
there should be no ill will shown in
any manner, but remember that we
are co-laborers and should be one or
ganization and work for the better
ment of all concerned."
