Utility Workers Quit
In Paris Area, Subway
Strike Is Rumored
By th» Associated Press
i PARIS, June 9—Plagued by a
nation-wide railroad strike, France
| was threatened today by another
i serious labor situation as public
utility workers walked oil the job
in several plants near the capital.
Gas and electricity plant workers
struck at St. Etienne and Montlu
con, and some of the Paris suburbs
; were expected to be without gas
| this afternoon. The workers acted
'several hours before the government
was to inform their union of what
i concessions it was willing to grant.
Premier Paul Ramadier succeeded
in averting a threatened nation
| wide 24-hour utility plant' strike 10
days ago by ordering requisition of
the workers. Agreement was reached
for an arbitrator—Paul Grunebaum
Ballin—to work out an accord. The
deadline was last midnight.
Rail Strikers Make Bid.
Mr. Grunebaum-Ballin was ex
pected to report to the union leaders
this afternoon. As in the rail strike,
I impatient workers struck prema
j turely, and it remained to be seen
i whether Mr. Ramadier would react
; in identical fashion—suspend fur
ther negotiations until the strike
! ended.
Whispers of a strike on the Paris
Metro (subway) also were heard,
i Such a stoppage, in conjunction with
the rail strike, would paralyze the
capital. A Metro official said today
that no decision had been made for
a strike, but that the subway union
workers possibly would take a defi
nite stand before Friday. A 24-hour
token strike for higher wages has
been called for that day by the
Public Service Federation, of which
the subway workers’ union is a part.
A full government council session
was called to meet in the office of
Socialist President Vincent Aurio! to
canvass the situation, which has in
creased in seriousness since the Na
tional Railroad Workers Federation
called the railway strike early Friday
for higher pay and reclassification;
of jobs.
Union leaders last night said they
were always disposed to negotiate
and hoped “this appeal will be
heard.” Mr. Ramadier remainded
The transportation ministry, in
charge of the government-owned
railroads, planned to broaden sub
stitute transport services begun
yesterday. Long-distance bus serv
ice was to be tripled and more extra
flights were to be added to Air

Industry waited to see how the
strike, which spread throughout the
country over the week end, would
cut factory forces. The nation's
capital itself has some 680.000 com
Railroaders still moved foods, but
in some places local strike commit
tees stopped freight trains to ques
tion their crews before letting them
go ahead. In Northern France yes
terday strikers halted 53 coal trains.
Mr. Ramadier—who last month
formed a new cabinet without Com
munists—and other Socialists have
accused the Communist party of try
ing to exert pressure on French for
eign policy through domination of
Premier Called “Stubborn.".,
Tn Speeches last night, JadqueS
Duclos, Communist secretary, termed
the Premier "stubborn.” and said
only those who would sell France
out to "international trusts” were
against a strike settlement. He de
I dared that France’s foreign policy
was “sliding dangerously to the
right,” threatening her independ
ence. He called for "a union of the
working class * * * to lead France
back to the left.”
Buses substituting for passenger
trains began moving early yesterday
out of Paris’ main railroad stations
and out of a crowded emergency
bus terminal set up in the Esplanade
des Invalides, a square between
Napoleon’s tomb and the Seine

for points within 100 miles of the
