ILMEN TO MOVE
FOR 6-HOUR DAY.
Meetings in New England Ad
dressed by Samuel E. Wigs
low and Timothy Shea.
By the Associated Press.
BOSTON, April I.—A Nation-wide
campaign for a six-hour day to com
bat unemployment \yas launched here
yesterday by the Brotherhood of Rail
road Trainmen and its companion or
ganization. the Brotherhood of Loco
motive Firemen and Enginemen. Simul
taneous meetings of New England mem
bers of both brotherhoods were held
in the American House and in Faneuil
Hall, where 13 years ago the drive for
the present eight-hour day for railroad
employes began.
Samuel E. Winslow, chairman of the
United States Board of Mediation, came
here to address the eng.neers and fire
men. but after he had spoken of the
success of his board "in keeping labor
troubles out of sight and in preventing
them." Timothy Shea, assistant presi
dent of the engineers, said. "We must
go to Congress for a bill of rights to
protect men who are being cast into the
junk heap."
"In 1927," Shea continued, "the num
ber of operating employes on the roads
of this country numbereu less than 1,-
700.000. while in 1920. the previous peak
year of history, more than 2.000.000 men
were required. With plans under con
templation which will mean the com
bining of 1.700 railroads under the con
trol of the Interstate Commerce Com
mission in 18 or 20 big systems, it means
that this brotherhood alone will have at
least 20.000 more men out of jobs.
"Neither the railroad labor act nor
any other leg ; slation can prevent the
railroad men of this country from walk
ing out on strike to get justice. The
act is a good thing and will prevent
trouble, but when the railroads refuse to
participate in the proceedings before
the regional boards, other methods of
settling disputes will have to be put into
effect.”
Share in Froductlon.
The trainmen were addressed bv their
president, Alexander F. Whitney of
Cleveland, who said. "I do not believe
that the inveulir -of labor-saving ma
chinery should reap all ii ~ returns from
his invention, but only a share, so that
the employer and employe, especially
the latter, who has been hardest hit,
may share in the increased production
through higher wages and shorter work
ing hours.”
"No nation ran continue great.” he
concluded, “unless it corrects its social
evils, and unemployment is one of the
greatest of these evils.”
A series of regional meetings in New
England and all other parts of the
country were planned by both organiza
tions as part of their campaign. Whit
ney said that the union would call upon
employers to maintain the present basic
wage in grapting the six-hour day.
