AFL Transit And
Metal Workers
Win Pay Boosts
Washington (LPA)—An arbitra
tion board last week awarded wage
increases of from 18c to 23c to 3000
Minneapolis and St. Paul members
of the Amalgamated Ass’n of
Street, Electric Railway and Motor
Coach Employes-AFL. The union
shop, a 40-hour work week, and
better vacation and sick leave pro
visions are included in the award.
Altho protesting that the wage
boosts, part of which are retro
active to the first of the year, still
do not bring the transit employes
abreast of increases in living costs,
union spokesmen hailed the new
agreement as bringing Twin Cities
transport pay more in line with
national averages.
The AFL union also recorded
wage gains for Utica, N. Y., bus

TRUTH—COMMIE VERSION—Sure, you’ve seen this picture
before. But this is a clipping from “Avanti”, paper of the pro-Com
munist Socialists in Rome, Italy. And under the photo of the sort
of caption you’ll find behind the iron curtain. “Walter Reuther, presi
dent of the United Auto Workers, in bed with an arm fractured by
police during the recent strike in Detroit,” is the translation.
Atlanta (LPA)—Meeting in At
lanta last week 250 representa■
tives of the Textile Workers-CIO
determined to push for a 15c an
hour wage increase, comprehensive
employer-paid insurance programs,
and improved vacation pay for
120,000 southern cotton and rayon
mill workers.
Knowledge of the textile
try’s huge profit margin convinced
the unionists that the industry can
meet their demands without taking
it out of the consumer. TWUA
President Emil Rieve said: “In,
spite of union gains the wages of
southern textile workers are still
far too low. They are too low to
provide the workers with proper
living standards, and too low to
permit textile communities to be
prosperous. Yet even the present
low standards are threatened by the
ever rising cost of living.

Where’s Elephant
Who Never Forgets
Philadelphia (LPA)—Paste this
story in your hat. In about two
years, you may be able to point
i out how the 1948 Republican plat
i form was as quickly forgotten as
was the 1944 one. Here are con
densed versions of the references
i to labor in each of them:
We pldege continuing study to
improve labor-management legisla
tion in the light of experience and
changing conditions.
Collective bargaining is an obli
gation as well as a right, applying
equally to workers and employers,
and the fundamental right to strike
is subordinate only to paramount
considerations of public health and
Government’s chtef sanction in
this field is to promote good will,
encourage cooperation and where
resort is had to intervention, to be
impartial, preventing violence and
requiring obedience to all law by
nil parties involved.
The rights land obligations of
workers are commensurate with the
rights and obligations of employ
ers and are interdependent.
These rights should be protected
against coercion and exploitation
from whatever quarter and with
due regard for the general welfare
of all.
We favor equal pay for equal
work regardless of sex.
In the past 18 months, the Re
publican Congress, in the face of
frequent obstruction from the exe
cutive branch, made a record of
solid achievement. Here (is one) of
the accomplishments of the Repub
lican Congress:
A sensible reform of the labor
law, protecting all rights of labor,
while safeguarding the entire com
munity against breakdowns in es
sential industries which endanger
the health and livelihood of all.
We pledge an end to political
trickery in the administration of
labor laws and the handling of la
bor disputes.
The Republican party is the his
torical champion of free labor. Un
der Republican administrations,
American manufacturing develop
ed, and American workers attained
the most progressive standards of
living of any workers in the world.
Now the nation owes these work
ers a debt of gratitude for their
magnificent productive effort in
support of the war.
The Republican party accepts the
purposes of the National Labor Re
lations Act, the Wage and Hour
Act, the Social Security Act, and
all other Federal statutes designed
to promote and protect the welfare I
of American men and women, and
we promise a fair and just admin
istration of these laws.

Norman Thomas Cover Convention
Philadelphia (LPA) Socialist
Presidential candidate Norman
Thomas arrived here this week to
take his seat in the press section
of the Republican convention. He’ll
be back for the Democratic and
Walalce conventions too. Palmer
Hoyt, publisher of the Denver Post
noted that “too many papers give
too many people on the left too
much reason to believe that they
print too much stuff from the
right” So he hired the democratic
left-winger to report the party
conventions. Over a dozen other
papers have arranged with Hoyt to
carry the Socialist’s reports. Mean
while, reporter Thomas has applied
for membership in the
Newspaper Guild.
Just As Well If
G.O.P. Forgets
Labor Pledges
Philadelphia (LPA)—You
have to rend the fine print in the
Republican Party’s platform io
learn there’s nothing much in it
for the people of the US, and very
little for organized labor.
Here’s what it savs about la’w
“Collective bargaining is an obli
gation as well as a right, applying
equally to workers and employers
and the fundamental right to strike
is subordinate only to paramount
considerations of public health and
safety. Government’s chief func
tion in this field is to promote good
will, encourage cooperation, and
where resort is had to interven
tion, to be impartial, preventing
violence and requiring obedienef

tion in the light of experience and
changing conditions.”

Included, after a four-hour figh‘

This, Negro and labor leaders
agree, is the testing point of any
civil rights program in the politi
cal arena. The platform calls for
an anti-lynching law. The rest of
the civil rights plank calls for
abolition of the poll tax (without
mention of the method) and states
the Republicans “are opposed to
the idea of segregation in the arm
ed services of the US.” Both state
ments leave plenty of loopholes, as
