Mr. and Mrs. Melvin Jenner and quaintance of Ruby'S Press and radio news reports over the MarCh 20-21 week-end have relayed a warning from IWA-CIO headquarters in Portland that a strike in the woodwork- ing industries is imminent. In a desperate attempt to gain rank- and-file support for this drastic action, the IWA-CIO officials are deliberately misleading the employees as to the facts. In Portland negotiations on March 19 the employer committee spokesmen ex- posed the union's untrue statements con- tained in the widely circulated "Bulletin No. 3," written by the IWA Northwest Re- gional Negotiating Committee. The bulle- tin claims that the employers are trying to cut wages, take away paid holidays and vacations, etc. In the presence of the full IWA.CIO Negotiating Committee and a pal three Federal Conciliators, emg read into the official record this tin No. 3" group represented in these gotiations involving some 23,000 ees. The IWA negotiators did not charges but attempted a weak tion on the basis that in a few some employers had opened the to cut wages. They did not tell the ployers who or where these people The employer members of the County Loggers Association want employees to know the truth. We sincerely regret a strike but if the officials force the industry into important that the workers who take the financial loss.should know true facts and issues involved. HERE ARE THE FACTS IWA-CIO "Bulletin No. 3" is too long to reproduce here in its entirety. If you haven't seen it you can doubtless obtain a copy from your local union or we will be glad to mail one or more copies on request. The "meat" of this piece of un- ion propaganda is contained in the tion which charges the employers trying to take something away employees. The specific union and our answer to each one are l OWS: THE UNION THE TRUTH The Employers are trying-- 1. To Cut Wages 1. Faisel The Tri.County employers have offered repeatedly to renew the present wage scale (highest average in the industry) for an- other year. 2. To Take Away Paid Holidays and Vacations 3. To Remove Present Protection Against Contracting and Sub- contracting Abuses 4. To Take Away All Seniority After 6-Months" Layoff 2. False! The Tri-County employers have not even opened the con- tracts on these subjects. W~ have repeatedly offered to renew pres- ent contracts. 3. Truel But the "abuses" are com- ing from the union, which evi- dently wants to make it increas- ingly difficult for' the small log- ging operator to stay in business. 4. Fatsei The Tri-County employers - did not even open the contracts on the subject of s~niority. FULL The IWA-CIO leaders also claim In their "Bulletin No. 3" that the employers have refused to discussvany of the union's proposals and have said #'no" to every- thing. Negotiations have now been held over a period of six weeks commencing Feb- ruary 10. Tri-County employers have been in session with the union, discuss. ing and re.discussing the iuues involved, on February 10-!1,12-23-24-25 and March 4-5-11-19-20. Hundreds of pages of offi- cial written transcript have been taken of the "discussion" which the union claims we haven't had. This record speaks for itself I We readily admit having said "no" to the union's fantastic demands for a 22~/~e HELD hourly wage increase, a 6-hour daY 8-hours pay and increased vacation paid holiday benefits. The saddled with the highest production in the history of the industry and prices and demand have been on downgrade for many months. The union's Northwest Regional tiating Committee declined to negotiations this week due to scheduled a meeting of the IWA-CIO ecutive Board March 24-25-26. We are so informed that representatives of the local unions are being Called broad conference in P~rtland on Next negotiating session with the gon- Washington employer groul~ scheduled for April 2-3. T0 The Tri-County employers have offer. ed to renew the present contracts on wages, holidays and vacations for 1953 and this is a matter of official record. We sincerely urge the union leadership and the employees of the timber indus- tries in this area to give the threatened strike some careful thought." Just eleven months ago--April 29, 1952---these same employers were struck by the IWA-CIO. Eight weeks later--after an economic loss to employees and their communities of hundreds of thousands of payroll dol- lars---a settlement was mdde on the same terms as the employers had offered be. fore the strike began. Most everyone knows that the post-war inflationary boom is over and our econ- omy is leveling off. The job of labor and management today is to try and consoli- date the gains we have made and do our best to maintain the present full employment and high living.
