Steel Strike Would Hit
Big Section Of Industry
- +_____
Walkout Of 800,000 CIO
—United Steelworkers
Scheduled Monday
BY JOAN SKIDMORE
PITTSBURGH, Jan. 13. — HP) —
steel-hungry nation with a pent-up
demand for the fruits of peacetime
production is on the threshold of
a strike which union spokesmen
claim will shut down the steel in
dustry.
A walkout of some 800,000 CIO
United Steelworkers scheduled for
Monday not only would close the
widespread operations of United
States steel corporation and hun
dreds of smaller steel companies—
it would stop production at about
1,000 fabricating plants and, if pro
longed, would hit every manufac
turer and every worker who de
pends upon steel in his business.
The steelworkers, whose demand
for a $2-a-day “cost of living” pay
raise was rejected by “big steel”
local unions are involved. These
unions range in size from 10, the
smallest unit, to a huge 20,000
and many smaller employers, say
that members belonging to .1,335
member unit in Gary, Ind.
About 450,000 of its members, the
union estimates, are in the basic
industry: steel and aluminum
mills, iron ore and bauxite mines.
It prepares the metal that goes to
factories in sheets and bars, plates
and wire.
The other 350,000 to 400,000
members are employed in fabrica
tion. Their work includes produc
tion, maintenance, plant protection
and office and clerical tasks.
Production workers prepare
from raw metals the finished pro
ducts with which every American
is familiar — machinery, bridges,
containers, ashtrays, coat hangers,
refrigerators,, autos and so on.
Other fabrication employes per
form the many jobs necessary to
keeping the production wheels
turning.
Should a general strike halt
those wheels next week, some un
counted thousands of persons in
other industries probably soon
would be thrown out of work. A
lew, in tne small portion 01 tne
fabricating industry which is un
organized, would lack steel with
which to work.
Others, in manufacturing plants
which may seems remote to the
steel industry, would lack neces
sary parts to repair their machines.
Consider, for instance, the plight
of the textile industry if a strike
stopped the almost steady flow of
bobbins required by its machines.
Spokesmen for steel corporations
report their companies have "ra
tioned” steel in an attempt to
make the supply released by the
war’s end spread further. But a
backlog of orders has piled up, and
a stel strike this month woul
find the industry with practically
no finished steel on hand. Also, un
ion spokesmen expressed a belief
that organized truckers and rail
roaders would refuse to handle
shipments from stockpiles during
a strike.
The fabrication indusry presents
this picture:
Topping the list of fabricators
who use huge amounts of steel is
the auto industry, iroubled during
reconversion with a major strike
of its own. Even if all employees
were on the job, auto manufacture
could not continue long without
fresh supplies of steel. -
Railraods, the next biggest con
sumer of steel, have 20,000 passen
ger cars on order. Manufacturers
have been prevented from carry
ing big inventories, and car pro
duction probably would cease al
most simultaneously with work at
steel mills.
The container industry, supply
ing metal drums, barrels and cans,
would be hard hit soon.
Commercial construction, plans
:or which have been progressing
-apidly since the war’s end, has
Keen held to 40 or 50 per cent of
>perating capacity because steel
ihipments are behind. Cessation of
steel mill operations would halt
structural fabricating.
Machne tool and agricultural
equipment manufacture also would
feel the strike’s impact almost at
once.
The oil, gas and mining indus
dustries would be less hindered
because in a large part their equip
ment can be re-used.
If the strike develops as plann
ed, the ,335 local unions will de
cide individually such questions as
when and where to picket, provide
plant service men, and assist
needy families.
The steelworkers executive
board has made clear that the
walkout will bring no strike bene
fits, as such, to its members. It
has authorized, however, supplying
of standby or service men to at
tend to plant property.
David J. McDonald, secretary
treasurer of the steelworkers,
said:
“The one thing we’re interested
in is that there be no production
or maintenance work in these
plants. Anything else we don’t
care about, except plant property
protection. Production facilities de
teriorate for lack of attention.”
Some steel operations must be
fed a certain amount of heat to
prevent damage. Coke ovens, for
instance, ordinarily are maintained
at a high temperature while coal
is being “roasted” to produce gas
and coke. Cooling contracts the
oven bricks, endangering collapse
of the structure.
McDonald said it would be to the
union’s best interest to supply la
bor for such standby operations so
work could be resumed readily
when the strike ends. Persons au
thorized to continue work will have
passes, issued by the union, to per
mit them to cross picket lines.
The union members would de
rive little individual benefit from
a division of tthe union’s fund
among them, he said.
Asserting that $5,000,000 divided
among 800,000 men would give
each only $6.25, McDonald said
“it’s an open secret that our trea
sury amounts to five million.”
He said the strikers would be
able to turn to a number of wel
fnrp anH cnrial acrpnripc onW
U. S. Employment service.
Robert M. McCullough, manager
of the Pittsburgh offices of USES,
said the service was “lining up
places adjacent to the mills where
we can move in and with the help
of union stewards, arrange regis
tration.”
The USES manager outlined un
employment procedure for Penn
sylvania thus:
Strikers are “disqualified” from
registering as unemployed for five
weeks after the start of a strike.
Then “one normal, and one com
pensable” week of waiting must
follow before their checks are
ordered from the state capitol.
So it would be about eight
weeks’ time from the start of a
walkout before compensation
would be forthcoming for strikers.
Persons whom the unemploy
ment compensation bureau at Har
risburg decides are not striker*,
but forced out of work through no
fault of their own, may apply at
once for compensation. Ordinarily
they have only a three-week wait,
McCullough said.
Each state makes its own regu
lations as to unemployment pay.
Some make no payments to
strikers, but many have proce
dures similar to Pennsylvania’*.
DIES OF WOUND
MARSHALL, Jan. 12.—UP)—An
drew Hoyle, one of six men shot
during an affray in the Foster’s
Creek section of Madison county
yesterday, died this afternoon at
an Asheville hospital. He was
struck between the eyes with a .45
calibre bullet, Sherriff Jeter P.
Ramsey said.
National Association of Air
rransporters predicts that 19
American airlines will purchase
more than $750,000,000 worth of
lew airplanes and ground equip
ment during the next five years.
