Threats Increasing
That Hawaii Strike
Will Spread to U. S.
■v the Associated Prest
HONOLULU, Aug. 4.—The threat
to spread Hawaii’s 96-day dock
tleup to the mainland ballooned
today. A union spokesman said
CIO Pacific Coast longshoremen
can walk out to support the
strikers.
The reason, said Robert W. Mc
Elrath, is that the West Coast con
tract nevor has been ratified by
the rank and file of the Interna
tional Longshoremen's and Ware
housemen’s Union. He is the ILWU
press spokesman here.
ILWU headquarters in San Fran
cisco has advised that the Pacific
Coast contract will not be ratified
“if Hawaii employers and their
agents in the territorial govern
ment continue with their strike
breaking program,” Mr..McElrath
said.
Statement Due Today.
Coast longshoremen, he said in
a radio address last night, have
worked under a “back to work”
memorandum since December 6,
1948. That was the date of sign
ing a contract ending a 95-day
West Coast dock strike.
This memorandum, Mr. Mc
Elrath asserted, was to be effec
tive until the ILWU membership
approved or rejected the general
contract.
In San Francisco, ILWU head
quarters said only that a formal
statement “relative to the matter”
will be issued later today. Coast
employers likewise refused im
mediate comment.
Meanwhile, all negotiations to
end the Hawaii tieup were at a
standstill.
Legislature Recesses.
The Hawaii legislature, in the
midst of efforts to pass a bill
aimed at ending the strike by
putting the Government in the
stevedoring business, recessed
until Friday.
Both House and Senate yester
day bowed to Gov. Ingrain M.
Stainback's last-minute plea to
modify a House-approved bill
banning the use of strikers or
management employes. They
passed resolutions to give the Gov
ernor a free hand in hiring
workers.
Before recessing House and Sen
ate set up committees to draft an
j amendment to the House bill. The
! committees have to iron out two
issues: Whether profits from Gov
ernment dock operation should go
to industry or to the territory,
and whether stevedores should be
paid the $1.40 hourly pre-strike
wage or less.
The 2,000 ILWU stevedores
struck Hawaii’s seven dock firms
May 1 lor an hourly raise of 32
cents.
Working Under “Recess.”
ILWU President Harry Bridges
is due here tomorrow from San
Francisco. His office said only
that his trip is in connection
with the strike. Some observers
were inclined to think, however. I
that his coming might signal re
sumption of negotiations.
Mr. McElrath asserted Pacific j
Coast longshoremen have been;
working since December under a
“recess” of last year’s strike. They
have complied with all Taft-Hart- j
ley Act cooling-off requirements,
he said, and could end the “re
cess” immediately.
Mr. McElrath said an immedi
ate Referendum on the contract
will be asked August 22 at a
longshore caucus of all Pacific
Coast ILWU locals. If the con-;
tract is voted down, he declared, j
coast longshoremen will be on j
strike. j
“One of their demands will be
that the strike in Hawaii be set-;
tied before they return to work,”
Mr. McElrath said.
The small amount of steel made
in United States colonial days was
used mainly in bayonets, swords
and cutting tools.
