Settlement Sought
After Strike at 64
Plants Is Called Off
By the Associated Preu.
CLEVELAND, Oct. 12.—Concilia
tion procedings involving the Cleve
land Graphite Bronze Co. and the
Mechanics' Educational Society of
America were scheduled today after
officials of the unaffiliated union
abandoned plans for a sympathy
strike of 68,000 members in 64 Ohio
and Michigan war plants.
MESA National Secretary Mat
thew Smith had called the walkouts
for today in protest against what
he termed company refusal to dis
cuss settlement of a dispute involv
ing one worker. The concern’s dis
charge of an employe for allegedly
breaking a lock on a company lock
er, he said, precipitated a strike and
resulted in Army seizure of Graphite
Bronze properties September 5.
Mr. Smith called off the threat
ened strikes after a War Depart
men declaration that settlement of
the dispute must proceed according
to a regional War Labor Board plan.
The WLB specified conciliation as
the first step in settlement and di
rected that a three-man arbitra
tion panel handle the case if con
ciliation failed.
James L. Myers, Graphite Bronze
executive vice president, said the
company was ready to comply with
the WLB conciliation order "at the
proper point in the grievance pro
cedure.” Mr. Myers maintained the
union had broken off grievance pro
cedure.
