OF COAL INDUSTRY

Industry by 200,000 non-union miners
Joining the solid 'anks of a half mil
lion union workers wa sthe program
Y adopted tonight -by the general policy
committee of the United 'Mine Workers
0 of America for the nation-wide strikc
- set for April 1.
By a unanimous vote of its 115 m0m
t hers, the committee aflirmed the pol
I. cy of a general suspension of union
worke rs, which prohibited the col
summation of single state agreements
e and followed this by directing district
r union ollicials to ask all non-union
men -to join the strike. The unanimity
of action late in the day permitted a
1inal adjolt riment tonight, 'although
the committee had l.'Aanndc( to con
tintue sessions tomorrow.
The resolution for an immediate
call to the non-union men also pro
vided that the "international and dis
trict uiions exert all their powers ani
influence to 'bring about a strike in
the ion-union coal fields of America."
The resolution was offered by Van
Bittner of Pittsburgh, 'Pa., who rep
rehened the provisional Kansas unll
ion orga nization at the committee
jueeting, and it was a(lopted 'without
objectionl and practically Without dis
The indorsement of the policy of a
general suslpesion of the union mn
I er was the committee's acceptance of
the program laid down by the un
lonl's convention a month ago, the
suspension being ordered with the
avowed purpose of gaining wage in
creasts for anthracite miners and re
taining ipresent -basic wages for -the
soft coal workers.
Although taking action, >which the
union leaders said they hoped would
stop the mining of a pound. of coal
'after April 1, the committee declared
itself as not intending to cause any
public suffering. In line with this
stand, the committee authorized the
district union officials to permit any
mine to be operated whenever neces
sary to meet an emergency.' Under
this program the officials said it
would be possiblie to supply fuel for
public utilities and institutions when
ever the .big stocks now on hand run
low. The aim of the strike, it was ex
plained in this connectioti, was to
prevent the mining of commercial
coal as a me'ans of forcing operators
to concede the union's wage demands.
In addition, tile committee also
affirmed- the provision of the strike
all providing for all necessary pro
ection being given to the mines dur
ing the strike. The only condition,
added by the colmittee, iwas that
firemen, engineers, puImpmen and
others who will reigain at work shall
receive the present scale of wages.
Then thousand mien, it was estimated,
would remain at the mines unl1der this
provision, hutt the selection of these
was left to (district union officials.
