The Principal Issue
» •
in the Telephone Strike
Is Wages
1. Here's What Our Employees Get Now
For Five-Day Week
Basic Starting Wages Maximum
(In Training) Basic Wages
Operators-$29 $44
Stenographers_ 29 49
Installer-Repairmen_31 72
Central Office Repairmen
and Cable Splicers_31 76
(In many cases, the above wages are increased by
overtime, holiday or Sunday work, night work,
etc.)
2. Here's What the Unions Want
Increases and other adjustments in wages rang
ing from $12 to $31 per week.
3. Here's What All of the Unions*
Demands Would Cost
An annual increase of $10,341,000 in the cost of
furnishing telephone service In Washington. This,
.is three times as much as the Company’s total
earnings last year. It is equal to an average of
$5.08 per month for each subscriber we serve—or
$2.23 more per telephone every month 1
4. Here's What We Have Offered
We have offered to renew our liberal contracts
with the Unions. All favorable practices, includ
ing seniority and wage progression increases,
would be continued. THIS OFFER STILL
STANDS.
We have offered to arbitrate the basic wage rates.
THIS OFFER STILL STANDS.
We believe our wages are fair and are willing to
subject them to this test.
The acceptance of either proposal would
have averted this strike and even now would
stop it immediately. .

There is no justification
for a Telephone Strike
/
Wage adjustments in the last six years represent a 55% increase in basic wages for employees
represented by the Union. Their wages are well in line with what other businesses in this com
munity pay for work requiring similar skill and training.
The Unions’ demands are not justified. To meet them would mean that their members would
receive substantially higher wages than other people are paid for comparable jobs. This is
not fair to the community which pays the bills.
If the Unions do not agree that telephone wages are good, the question can easily be settled
by an impartial board of arbitrators, as we have offered. , ,

/■ s
During the strike, most local calls will be handled as usual.
We will do our best to handle as many Long Distance calls as passible.
