workers. The CIO Steelworkers have
established the notorius reputation
as a raiding union which fosters and
depends on disunity for any growth,
The Salvas statement continues;
"Our second reason in making this
decision is that all labor in Montana
recognized the peril to the unity of
the Anaconda workers stemming
"A victory for the steel union at
Columbia Falls would be a serious
blow to the unity of all Anaconda
workers all over the state and nat
ion. This raiding outfit must not be
permitted to gain a foothold in our
state and thereby endanger the
traditional unity of Montana labor."
Third reason of the Mine-Mill stand
is: "Our continued participation in
the NLRB election campaign could
conceivably result in a situation
where no union listed would receive
a majority of the vote cast thereby
causing a runoff election later.
This would further postpone a fin
nal certification of a collective bar
gaining representative of the Colum
bia Falls workers."
Then there is a Mine-Mill "pitch"
of "further delay their winning of
wage increases and other benefits
that should have been granted last
July as proposed by Mine-Mill."
"It is for the above reasons that
Mine-Mill is withdrawing from the
Columbia Falls campaign and will
not appear on the ballot. It is for
these reasons also that we urge all
of our members and supporters in
the Columbia Falls plant to support
the AF of L Columbia Falls Council.
We wish to express our thanks to the
many Columbia Falls workers who
have supported our campaign."
The Hungry Horse News feels that
the Salvas statement would indicate
that Mine-Mill was a strong force
in the local contest. The union was
not particularly active here that we
could see, though it is strong in the
