AFL Ready To Meet CIO
On Organic Unity, Bars
Plan of President Murray
By CUSHMAN REYNOLDS
Philadelphia (LPA)—The AFL Executive Council rejected the CIO’s
plan for immediate functional unity among all labor groups, but sug
gested further exploration of ways to achieve complete organic unity.
The council, whose five-day spring meeting was convened here May
8, is ready to select a committee to meet with a CIO committee to work
out a plan for permanent organic unity of the AFL and CIO, President
William Green of the AFL 'said in a letter to President Philip Murray.
Green’s letter was in reply to a letter, Murray, acting with the approval
of the CIO’s vice-presidents, sent April 4 to the AFL, the four indepen
dent rail brotherhoods, the International Association of Machinists and
the United Mine Workers, propos
ing a standing committee to coor
dinate the activities of all labor on
economic, legislative and political
problems. Both the Machinists and
the UMW later indicated {heir
willingness to meet with other
groups to consider the proposal,
but the rail brotherhoods have not
yet replied.
In his letter, Green said that the
Executive Council felt that the
Murray proposal would not “accom
plish the desired objective, viz., or
ganic untiy in the labor forces of
America.” The AFL council, Green
wrote, felt that its counter-propos
al “if realized, will lead to organic
unity for all forces and groupings
of organized labor in America.”
Murray had placed joint action now
ahead of actual organic unity.
At. a press conference, Green im
plied that he would not be surpris
ed if events moved swiftly. Green
did not mention the fact, but Mur
ray was attending the convention
of the United Steelworkers, of
which he is also president, in At
lantic City only 60 miles away.
The AFL leader pointed out that
the CIO proposal differed from pre
vious efforts at labor unity in sev
eral respects, notably because it
included the rail" brotherhoods. He
said the brotherhoods always had
been independent and that they
probably would remain so. In addi
tion, he declared that any action by
the brotherhoods would inevitably
be a longdrawn process.
The AFL chief emphasized that
the executive council was not lay
ing down any advance terms as a
basis for a meeting with the CIO.
However he said that if an AFL
committee met with a group from
the other organization its members
would not be able to commit the
federation to a program without
the approval of the Executive
Council. If the CIO agrees to such
a conference, Green indicated that
the AFL committee would be simi
lar to the committee which met
with the CIO in the spring of 1947.
Asked what organic AFL-CIO
unity would mean, Green replied,
“We are ready to unite with the
CIO because it would conserve

labor’s financial resources, would
end raiding of each other and
would be of great benefit to the
masses—the workers.” End pro
duct would be “development of the
labor movement to its highest ser
viceable point,” he added.
At later sessions, the council
was scheduled to review the status
of the invitation to the Machinists
to re-affiliate with the AFL which
they left five years ago. The decis
ion to ask the Machinists back was
made last winter at the council’s
Miami meeting. The council was
also slated to sit as the adminis
trative committee of Labor’s Lea
gue for Political Education the
afternoon of May 9. I
The complete text of Green’s
letter to Murray follows:
“As indicated in my response of
April 10th, your letter of April 4th
was referred to the Executive
Council of the American Federation
of Labor for attention of our meet
ing now being held in Philadelphia.
Pa.
“Our Executive Council gave
most thorough consideration to
your proposal for unity of action
among the several groups of or
ganised labor to whom you address
ed yourself.
“We regret the absence of a con
ference prior to the issuance of
your invitation and proposal. Our
Executive Council doubts seriously
that the method and procedure sug
gested and proposed in your lettei
would accomplish the mutually de
sired objective, viz., organic unity
in the labor forces of America.
“We find ourselves in complete
accord with the necessity of unity
in all fields of organized labor’s
activities and would direct atten
tion to the several appeals pre­
viously addressed to your organ
ization in the past number of years
for unity not merely upon a tenta
tive and cooperative basis, but upon
a permanent and organic basis.
Our Executive Council would di
rect your further attention to the
unanimous decision of our most re
cent Convention urging the neces
sity and furtherance of unity in the
forces of organized labor in spirit
as well as in substance, not merely
on a conference level, but upon a
permanent and organic basis.
“In view of these decisions and
in accord with the mood and temp
er of your letter, the Executive
Council has, by unanimous decision
authorized and directed me to ad
vise you and your organization that
we are prepared to select a Com
mittee to meet a like Committee oi
the CIO to engage in conference
looking toward an early and suc
cessful realization of unity upon a
permanent and secure basis be
tween our respective organizations.
“We, therefore, await your early
and trust favorable consideration
regarding the foregoing proposal
for unity of organized labor as rep
resented by our respective organ
izations and which, we feel confid
ent, if realized will lead to organic
unity of all forces and groupings of
organized labor in America.”

Dubinsky Calls
Training Institute
Major Union Move
New York (LPA)—“The most
important event in my life and in
the life of the union.” That is the
way David Dubinsky, president of
the AFL International Ladies Gar
ment Workers, described the open
ing of the union’s training insti
tute May 1. He advised the labor
movement to watch the novel ex
periment closely as a possible
answer to the acute shortage of
labor leaders in the United States.
“Who knows but that among you
may be a future President of the
ILGWU”, said Dubinsky as he fac
ed the training institute’s first
class of 32 men and five women,
out of 250 applicants chosen for
their desire to devote their lives
to the labor movement.
The ILGWU executive board has
voted an initial annual budget of
$100,000 for the institute.
“Somebody has tAld me that you
can’t train leaders,” he told a dis
tinguished audience of educators
and labor leaders at ILGWU head
quarters, 1710 Broadway, “but I
wasn’t born a President”. He drew
a laugh as he hinted that he might
have made the jumps to the top
faster, if he had training the young
folks sitting before him are about
to begin. He admitted, too, that the
labor leader of the future will need
to be an expert in government af
fairs, in statistics, and other fields
not required of the present genera
tibn.
To ILGWU officers afraid that
the young people might supplant
them, Mr. Dubinsky said, “don’t
be scared”, pointing out the
ILGWU has 170 more officers now
than in 1943. “There is plenty
room for new blood.”
He described the prosperity
his union but said that so far
has not built leadership for the
future. Whether the training school
will be the answer, he said, will de
pend largely on the skill with which
the institute is conducted.
“You will have to work very,
very hard you don’t become a
labor leader through comfort,”
Julius Hochman, chairman of the
ILGWU’s educational committee,
warned the students. He indicated
it was a big innovation for unions
to open their doors to students
without union connections, though
union members and children of
members will be favored as appli
3ants to the institute. Ten of the
first institute class are members of
the ILGWU 14 have ILGWU con
nections and three have other
union connections. The other five
have no union connections.
In the past, Hochman said,
unions have been loathe to trust
outsiders because too often the in
tellectual turned out to be some
one trying to use the labor move
ment for social changes he believ
ed in. In the training institute, he
said empKasis will be laid on hav
ing the students become an inte
gral part of the labor movement.
He revealed that the ILGWU is
iow
spending approximately $335,
000 a year on educational activities.
Since 1940 it has maintained of
ficers’ qualification courses in New
York and for a while supported
labor fellowships at Harvard and
Cornell.
The new “ILGWU” Training In
stitute is a day school, offering a
full one-year course seven months
of class work and five months of
field work, entailing visiting shops,
observing at close range the work
of organizers, business agents and
managers, the impartial chairman
machinery where it exists, the pro
cedures in organization, and the
following up of labor relations
cases.
Outside lecturers and key people
familiar with the various facets of

AFL Names Tobin,
Tracy, MacGowan
To Confer With CIO
Philadelphia (LPA) Another
step toward labor unity was taken
at the closing sessions of the AFL
Executive Council here when the
council named three top labor
chiefs to conduct negotiations with
the CIO.
They are Presidents Daniel W.
Tobin of the Teamsters, Charles J.
MacGowan of the Boilermakers,
and Dan W. Tracy of the Electrical
Workers.
AFL President William Green
explained at a press conference
that there will be no strings at
tached to the three-man committee.
“We want to leave the negotiations
wide open,” he said. “Our commit
tee will be prepared to give consid
eration to all proposals that are
made.”
(President Philip Murray of the
CIO welcomed the AFL action. He
said the issue will come up at a
meeting of the CIO vice-presidents
in June, and that arrangements for
joint meetings will be made shortly
thereafter.),
On the question of reaffiliation
of the Int’l Association of Machin
ists, Green said he will confer soon
i with officials of the I AM oh next
moves. The council sent an Invita
tion to the Machinists to reaffil!
ate, but officials of the latter union
declared they would have to study
the terms of the invitation to deter
mine whether they are such as can
be submitted to a membership ref
erendum for a decision.
Action to promote and retain
high employment was demanded by
the council in a statement on the
economic situation. Unemployment
is still serious despite a seasonal
rise in jobs during April, the coun
cil said. Much of the joblessness, it
declared, is due to heavy post-war
mechanization and increased pro
ductivity.
“Unless the market for the goods
produced by the nation’s factories
is expanded, this growing produc
tivity will mean fewer and fewer
workers on the job,” it warned.
of

it
As a solution, the council pro
posed these steps: (1) higher un
employment insurance* payments
and for a longer period than now
(2) higher wages to boost consum
er buying power (3) prevention of
price increases and retention of
rent control (4) formation of local
full employment committees (5)
revision of government programs
in the fields of public works, taxa
tion, agriculture, resource develop
ment, etc., so all will be geared to
the goal of high employment.
Among other actions the council:
Urged a billion-dollar reduction
in-excise taxes on consumer goods
and services.
Favored revision of estate and
gift tax laws to plug loopholes and
boost rates.
Assailed Postmaster General
Donaldson for his orders cutting
back mail delivery services and
wiping out thousands of postal jobs.
President Truman, Congress^ and
Donaldson were called upon to re
scind the orders.
Announced the 1950 AFL con
vention will open September 18 in
Houston, Tex., and the next Execu
tive Council meeting will be Aug

Set up a three-man committee to
study the whole subject of pension
plans in private industry. The
members are President William L.

MOVIE CHAIN SUED BY US
IN ANTI-TRUST CASE
Nashville, Tenn. (LPA)—The U.
S. has filed civil and criminal con
tempt proceedings against the
Crescent Amusement Co. and
others, charging they violated a
1943 anti-trust judgment. Involved
are movie theaters in Tennessee,
Alabama and Kentucky. The 1943
judgment was designed to end
practices which suppressed the
growth of independent competition.
Comment On
’World Events
The American Federation of
Labor has rcl’nrated its call for a
constructive policy in Germany and
has ag^in assailed dismantling of
German plants essential to peace
time production a foolish policy
which this column has denounced
on several occasions.
Declaring that 'West Germany
has left no doubt of its desire to
cooperate with the W -tern Allies,
the AFL says in its latest labor’s
Monthly Survey “the people of
Germany do not want an alliance
with Russia. But they are faced
with many difficulties. Foremost is
the problem of making a living.”
Germany, the federation recalls,
has always depended heavily on
trade with the east to provide a
market for her products ard jobs
for her workers. Ttday, trade with
the east is reduced to a mere trickle
and if Germany is to support her
self, other foreij/n trade must be
developed to replace it.
The federation says that unem
ployment in western Germany now
affects 13 percent of the popula
tion, a level equivalent to 8 million
unemployed in the United States.
The problem of German export
trade, it is added “should be a first
concern of the occupying powers,
Britain, France and the U. S. For
until it is solved the German peo
ple must depend for support on
American taxpayers unemploy
ment will continue and German
workers cannot hope to raise their
living standards. Since the occupy
ing powers have not permitted Ger
many to set up diplomatic relations
with other countries, the responsi
bility is theirs.”
Discussing the dismantling po
licy, the federation gives compell
ing reasons for changing the policy.
“Britain continues to dismantle
essential German factories in her
zones. The AFL has steadfastly
opposed dismantling as an unnec
essary burden on the American tax
payer and a crushing and needless
blow to German working men and
women. Dismantling destroys work
ers’ means of earning a living,
eliminates needed factories, adds
to unemployment.
“The argument that dismantling
destroys war potential misses the
points factories now slated for dis
mantling were never on the official
list of war plants they were de
clared ‘surplus’ under the ‘level of
industry’ rule which restricts pro
duction thus limiting employment
and living standards.”
“The German people do not want
communism,” the AFL asserts.
“But they desperately need the jobs
that could come from industrial ex
pansion and they want to share in
the restored European economy and
help make it a going concern, se
cure against Soviet infiltration and
agression. They want to revive Ger
man trade in order to maintain ex
pansion. The 5 million German
trade unionists and the Social
Democratic Party have voluntarily
decided that they do not want Ger
man rearmament—but they want a
chance to produce adequate food,
clothes, housing.”
In conclusion, the AFL points
out: “The real security is not in
dismantling German plants ©r in
separating off German territory,
but in restoring the German econ
omy, thus strengthening her pre
sent friendly government, and in
enabling Germany to play a con
structive part in building the new
Europe.”
9 Bell Strikers
Freed In Trial
On Riot Charges
Lockport, N. Y. (LPA)—Nine of
the 23 members on trial for riot
and conspiracy here as an after
math of the Bell Aircraft strike
conducted by Local 501, Unite I
Auto Workers, last year were dis
missed by County Judge John S.
Marsh for lack of evidence. He
withheld a ruling on a defense mo

Martin Gerber, director of UAW
Region 9, who was never arraigned
after he was injured Sept. 7.
Under persistent cross-examina

1. That Bell Aircraft furnished
helicopters and horses for use by

2. Blackjacks and bludgeons
were manufactured by the salaried
engineers and scabs on company
time for use against the strikers.
(Fourteen of these weapons have
been presented and marked for
identification as evidence by the
defense.)
3. The company installed a sound
system at the main gate of the Bell
plant to jam the union’s sound car
announcements and fire hoses
were laid out for possible use
against the pickets on Sept. 7.

Council Endorses
Proposal To Aid
LLPE Activities
Philadelphia (LPA)—The AFL
Executive Council on May 9, the
second day of its spring meeting
here, endorsed a proposal by
Labor’s League for Political Edu
cation that all AFL unions be as
sessed 10 cents a head to support
LLPE’s educational activities. Such
an assessment would be purely vol
untary, AFL President William
Green emphasized, and it would be
paid from union treasuries.
The Council also endorsed a sec
ond LLPE proposal that a special
campaign be conducted in June and
July to persuade AFL members to
contribute $2 a piece to support the
League’s activities in connection
with next fall’s Congressional elec
tions. This endorsement was
strongly urged by Joseph Keenan,
LLPE director.
In addition, the Council approv
ed the invitation Green had sent
to the International Association of
Machinists, asking the IAM to re
turn to the AFL fold, Green told
reporters. The IAM left the AFL
in 1945, following a jurisdictional
dispute with the Carpenters. At its
Miami meeting last winter, the
Council voted to invite the IAM
back. Now it’s up to the IAM mem
bership who will vote in a refer
endum on the issue. Green said the
AFL expects and wants the IAM
to vote to return.
Further action by the Council in
cluded strong endorsement of Pres
ident Truman’s “Plan 12,” reor
ganizing the National Labor Rela
tions Board. Under the plan, the
NLRB’s general counsel would lose
the independence he’s enjoyed un
der the Taft-Hartley Act, and the
present counsel, Robert N. Denham,
would be hunting a job. While
labor’s opposition to the present
setup is partly rooted in its dis
taste for Denham’s bias against the
unions, labor also points out that
as now organized under two heads
the NLRB is a house divided.
President Green said he was con
fident that committees of the AFL
and CIO would meet “in the near
future” to discuss possible plans for
a merger. Twenty-four hours earl
ier, the Council rejected CIO Pres
ident Murray’s proposal for a
standing committee of all Ameri
can labor to coordinate legislative
and other matters, but at the same
time offered to send a committee to
discuss “organic unity” with
CIO.
the
Wisconsin Bell
Settlement OK’d
Washington (LPA)—The Com
munications Workers of America
announced that it had approved the
first settlement of the 25 series of
negotiations with the Bell System.
The new agreement covers 10,000
plant and traffic workers of Wis
consin Bell, and provides pay hikes
for 70 to 75 per cent of the force,
averaging 7 cents an hour on the
basis of a 40-hour week. For all
10,000 the average would be 5
cents.
There was no general wage in
crease, the pay boosts being accom
plished by shortening the 8-year
apprentice period to 6’s years, up
grading 16 of the 60 towns involv
ed, and upgrading a number of
jobs in both departments. The in
crease was effective May 7 for
those on the Milwaukee payroll,
and May 14 for outstate.
CWA officials said this should
be “a good guide” for settlement
of the other 24 negotiations. The
CWA scheduled a strike of 250,000
for Feb. 24 and then deferred the
walkout for 60 days at the request
of President Truman. A few hours
before expiration of the truce on
April 26 the union postponed the
strike indefinitely, announcing that
developments indicated the possi
bility of agreement.

fense argues this was part of a
plan put into effect by Bell Air
craft to provoke violence in an ef
fort to discredit the union.)
NLRB Rules Out
Phony Wage Data
In Bargaining
Na
has
Washington (LPA) The
tional Labor Relations Board
cracked down pn another company
device to obstruct true collective
bargaining, in a case involving the
B. F. Goodrich Co. and the Rubber
Workers, acting for 20,000 em
ployes at the Akron plant.
The company had furnished an
alphabetical list of employes and a
separate list of pay scales in var
ious departments, but refused to
match the two lists so the union
could tell what individual employes
were actually being paid.
The board ruled this was a
phony, and ordered the company to
supply data “in a manner not so
burdensome or time-consuming as
to impede the process of bargain
ing.” Specifically, the board ojd- r
ed the company to: furnish a list
of all workers, identified by name,
d-partment and pay-roll nurr^-r,
sla ving
the salary of each emp.oye
before and immediately after a
horizontal increase July 1, 1948,
the pre salary of each employe
the nun.uer of performance rating
points received by each employe in
the last rating.
The board ruled the union needed
this data to bargain effectively and
to determine whether the wage
provisions of the contract were be
ing administered properly. The
Board al.-o ordered the e imp,uiy to
supply information on merit raises.
Using Red Smear
Tactics To Defeat
Sen. Wayne Morse
Portland, Ore. (LPA)—The old
“red” smear has been dragged out
in the Republican primary cam
paign against Sen. Wayne L.
Morse, who is seeking renomination
May 19. “Morse has sided with the
pinkos, the commies and the left
ists practically 100 per cent of the
time,” reads one advertisement.
Morse, who in his own Words is
“running like a scared rabbit,” is
opposed by Dave ’’Deadwood Dave”
Hoover, a farmer from central Ore
gon, w^o says he doesn’t believe in
farm subsidies but accepted pay
ments “only because everbody else
did.” A price-support farm pro
gram, says Hoover, is a step on the
road to socialism.
Hoover’s campaign is well-fin
anced, with an abundance of huge
billboard ads, newspaper ads, and
radio speeches. The ads say Morse
is brilliant but “so was Klaus
Fuchs, who gave the secrets of the
atom bomb to the Russians.” The
ads attack Morse for having voted
to confirm Leland Olds to the Fed
eral Power Commission for back
ing the “far-to-the-left” ADA for
supporting the Marshall Plan. The
ads have even gone way back to at
tack Morse for helping get a par
don for Tom Mooney, “the radical
who had been given a life sentence
for his part in the 1916 Prepared
ness Day bombing in San Fran
cisco.” (Impartial students long
ago decided Mooney had been
framed.)
Hoover, who leans to the 1928-32
outlook for another Hoover (Her
bert), drew an audience of four to
an advertised talk in a small town
recently. The press reported that
of the four, one was a reporter, two
were Morse ‘spies’ and the fourth
was a Hoover man.
