Thursday, September 8, 1948
The case, commonly known as the Bercut-Richards case, grew out of the discharge of 1340 workers from 58 canning plants following the conclusion of a closed-shop agreement with the Teamsters Union-AFL. The agreement followed an elec tion conducted in 1945 in which the Teamsters competed with the Food, Tobacco A Agricultural Workers CIO. The NLRB set aside the elec tion, ruling that the companies should recognize neither union un til one of them was certified. How ever, the companies signed with the Teamsters anyway. The FTA protested and the com panies were charged with signing contracts while certification was pending discharging employes not members of the Teamsters giving the Teamsters organizing priv ileges and other assistance while denying such help to the FTA. The discharged workers were FTA members in 1946. The board’s ruling reinstated all but 14 of the discharged workers in accord with a formula included in a stipulation to which the com panies agreed and which is en forceable by the US Court of Ap peals in San Francisco. If the $205,000 award proves insufficient to pay all back wages found due, the total is to be pro-rated among the reinstated employes, the board said. Meanwhile, union-shop elections among employes of companies be longing to the California Proces sors & Canners Inc. which include all but five of the companies, was scheduled to commence on Sept. 6. Employes were to express their preference whether or not they wished the Teamsters to represent them in bargaining for a union shop agreement. Reinstated em ployes were entitled to vote. Australia Ends Labor Curb Washington, D. C. (ILNS). Dispatches from Canberra, Aus tralia report that Deputy Prime Minister Herbert Evatt had ann ounced the repeal of legislation that froze trade union and Com munist party funds and kept labor from supporting the recent coal strike. Evatt admitttd that law was “without precedent” but said it was supported by the majority of trade unionists and helped break the strike, which, it was charged, was Communist-inspired.

ILGW Union Hao ‘Fair Income Fund j—... .... Philadelphia (LPA)—The “Fair Income Fund” of the International Ladies Garment Workers Union AFL in this city is described by Fortune magazine for August as a “new and iingenious scheme” to straighten out kinks in wages created by seasonal unemployment and irregular layoffs. The dollar-a-throw big business periodical pays tribute to Samuel Otto, a vice-president of ILGWU and ‘manager of the union’s Phila delphia Waist & Dressmakers Joint Board, who conceived the idea of the fund which provides 12,000 workers in 275 shops with unem ployment compensation during slack periods. The employers pay the cost of the program, contributing 3% per cent of their payrolls to the fund, which is administered by repre sentatives of the union, the em ployers’ association and Dr. George W. Taylor of the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School. The fund works two ways. It provides income for unemployed workers and it acts as a spur on management to keep workers em ployed the year around. An em ployer with a consistent record of high employment can retrieve up to 80 or even 90 percent of his con tribution in the form of merit re funds. He may get a little wind fall of $25,000 to $30,000 which union manager Otto says is “quite an inducement to the many small and medium-sized employers in the industry.” As a result of the employer in centive feature, manufacturers have been led to start their sea sons earlier by searching out new markets and to bring out a more diversified line of products to keep people working in normally slack periods. Meanwhile, workers get their benefits directly. If an employe is out of work for one day in a week, he receives a “credit” in his Fair Income Fund book. Twenty credits entitle him to a maximum of $40 for laid off time. During the cur rent year, a worker can claim up to five benefit payments, and un redeemed credits can be carried into next year. Fortune reports that continuity of employment produces a more even wage level. One reason for this is that new styles are intro duced more frequently and nego tiating over piece rates is less bit ter if there has been no unemploy ment or very little unemployment preceding introduction of the new line. Between October 1, 1947, and the end of September last year the fund paid $355,090 in unem ployment benefits to workers and $158,000 to employers in merit re funds. AEC HEARINGS BACKFIRED? Washington (EPA) After a quorum failed to show up for the last six meetings, the Joint Con gressional Committee on Atomic Energy last week closed its long investigation of the Atomic Energy Commission. Sen. Rourke Hicken looper (R, la.), the man who start ed the whole thing in the first place, was one of those failing to show up for hearings or to answer letters from Committee Chairman Brien McMahon (D, Conn.) for the last six weeks. Hickenlooper indi cated he’d rather investigate AEC on his own.

Early in July the company obtain ed an injunction limiting pickets to 15 at a gate. Then it tried to import scabs. On Aug. 11 it sent a back-to-work appeal directly to the workers. The back to work drive was a flop. More than a week ago Gov. Dewey assigned Msgr. John P. Boland as a mediator in the dis pute. The company then violated an agreement that mediation offers would remain confidential during discussions. As a result the union is nqw making public its offer: 1—The strike be ended Sept. 6 and all strikers return to work ac cording to seniority provisions in the previous contract. 2—All contract provisions agreed on in conferences be reduced to writing and signed by representa tives of the corporation and the union. 3—All issues remaining in dis pute be submitted to an arbitrator for decision within 60 days. Dock Strike Talks Move To New York Honolulu (LPA)'*— Representa tives of the striking Int’l Long shoremen’s & Warehousemen’s Union and the seven struck steve doring firms are scheduled to meet with Cyrus Ching, head of the fed eral conciliation service, in New York on Sept. 7. Whether the talks with Ching will lead to settlement of the long drawn out strike is held to he a matter of sheer conjecture. While the union readily agreed to send representatives to New York, the employers acted with obvious re luctance and were openly pessi mistic about what the results would be. The strike, in which wages are the main issue, is now in its fifth month. The Hawaiian territorial govern ment continued to run the struck firms and its authority to do so was affirmed by a federal District Court which denied a petition by the left-wing ILWU to bar the government from the stevedoring business. However, the court did order a full review of the consti tutionality of the dock-seiqure law but not as part of the labor dis pute. The union’s suit against ter ritorial officials for $3,000,000 damages will be heard separately.

The corporation, Livingston charges, “has broken off all nego tiations with the union and appears to desire a continuation of the strike rather than a fair and de cent settlement.” He termed the company condi tions for settlement “a denial of all principles of collective bargain ing.” Ignoring a record of recogni tion of the union for 12 years, and an established collective bargain ing relationship, the company de manded during a mediation pro ceedings that UAW prove its rep resentation of the 1700 production workers involved. When tne union offered to enter into an election to prove its repre sentation, Livingston said, “imme diately the company imposed new demands which call for the com plete surrender and destruction of the union organization. It announ ced its demands as an ultimatum which must be accepted before any further discussions can be held.” THE POTTERS HERAW, EAST LIVERPOOL, OHIO EU«OtQGI|r PSYCHOLOGIST I ----------------------PSYCHATIIIST OCCUPATIONAL LAIOPATOItY» w^st-tkhmcian ..............

(gests Arbitration h------------------------------------------ Justice Dep’t May Take Action In Georgia Beatings Washington (LPA)—Two vic tims of beatings and all around anti-union rough stuff by armed thugs of the American Thread Co. in Tallapoosa, (5a., came to the capital last week to tell their story to the Justice Dep’t. BerneH Rochester, who together with his wife was cruelly beaten on Aug. 19, and J. P. Abercrombie, who has been in several groups of organizers dispersed by company thugs, conferred with Alex Camp bell, Ass^ Attorney General, and urged that criminal charges be brought against the police and other public officials of Tallapoosa for assisting or conniving in at tacks on the rights of union mem bers and union organizers. Aber crombie and Rochester are mem bers of the Textile Workers Union of America. There is a strong chahce'Xhat the Justice Dep’t may act, spokes men for the union said. If so, basis for the action will be a series of post-Civil War federal statutes de signed to protect the right* of Negroes. These statutes make it a federal crime to interfere with a person’s civil rights, and accord ing to one interpretation they can be cited to protect the rights of union organizers as guaranteed .by labor legislation. Bernell Rochester was assaulted outside the unorganized American Thread plant in Tallapoosa while handing out union literature to workers ctming off shift. When his wife, who was among those leaving the plant, tried to come to his rescue, she too was attacked. Both were badly beaten. The assailants were identified as Durwood Teal and his father Elzie Teal. The union charged that Dur wood Teal did the actual beating, using a club, while his father stood guard with a sawed off shotgun. The two Teals were charged with assault with intent to kill but have not been indicted. Abercrom bie and Rochester said that the Teals’ bail was pledged by mem bers of the Tallapoosa city council. The Rochesters have sued the Teals for $300,000 damages. On previous occasions, union or ganizers were driven off by com pany thugs armed with pistols, knives and guns while local police watched, the union reported. At the time of the attack on the Rochest ers the Superior Court of Georgia had just handed down an injunc tion forbidding officials and agents of the American Thread Co. from interfering with members of the union. Swedish Seamen’s Pay Gains Stockholm (ILNS).—The Swed ish seamen during the last 4 years achieved an increase of 60 percent in real wages, according to a re port presented at the recent con gress of the Swedish Seamen’s Union in Helsingborg.

(ILNS).—Five hundred strikers of the Interna tional Chemical Workers Union, A FL, voted to accept a 6-cent-an hour pay increase from the Gener al Aniline Dye Works.

The com panies, which are dominated by Hawaii’s 19th-century minded “Big Five” business combines, first of fered eight cents, then 12 cents, then agreed to the 14 cents recom mended by an emergency fact finding board. The union has in dicated it will accept less than the 32 cents originally demanded. SENATE PROBER WARNS BUSINESS OF MONOPOLY By DONALD WOODS Madison, Wis.
