Its surrsy showed 15,100,000 man-days of strike idleness in the three-month period. About 85 per cent of this resulted from shut downs in the coal industry and the Chrysler strike. The department noted that pensions were the primary issue in the Chrysler dispute and also were a major factor, along with wage demands, in the coal strike. 60 New Strikes in Quarter. In addition, it said, disputes over pensions and other social in surance benefits were “prominent” in about 60 new strikes that occurred in the quarter. Counting the coal and Chrysler strikes, these issues accounted for 88.7 per cent of total man-days of idleness caused by labor-man agement disputes in the period. (By man-days idle, the de partment explained it meant all workers made idle for as long as one shift in establishments di rictly involved in a strike. Other workers indirectly thrown out of work are not counted.) The vast majority of strikes during the quarter, the depart ment said, were only local. Alto gether, 650 new strikes, involving 293,000 workers, were recorded in the three-month period. 718,000 Workers Involved. With the strikes continuing in to 1950 from the previous year, a total of 770 strikes involving 718, 000 workers were in progress at one time or another during the quarter. Because of the coal and Chrys ler strikes, Michigan, Pennsylva nia and West Virginia were the States primarily affected. In Michigan more than 4 mil lion man-days of idleness were counted, while in each of the big coal-producing States of Pennsyl vania and West Virginia the total was more than 3 million. By contrast, New York led in the number of new strikes—103 in the quarter—but had a rela | lively low record of strike idle ness. AFL unions were involved in about 45 per cent of new stop pages and about 5 per cent of strike idleness. CIO unions were parties to 30 per cent of new stoppages and 35 per cent of strike idleness. UnafHliated unions like the United Mine Workers were in volved in 18 per cent of the new stoppages while accounting for 60 per cent of strike Idleness. 52 Firms Enlisted In Southwest Cleanup Fifty-two business firms have been enlisted in a Southwest Cit izens’ Association drive to keep trash off the streets, Frank M.
