since last November Voted by public and labor ber over stiff industry objections j it calls for a pay boost that will eventually total cents an hour plus other sions including the union shop The union had asked for cent hourly pay boosts with other concessions estimated to bring the overall increased costs to around 35 cents an hour Steel companies gave no diate reaction to the WSB plan But industry members ier denounced the proposal in a statement as unfair and inflationary Murray announcing his fourth delay in strike plans called for renewed negotiations starting day with steel companies here and at Pittsburgh The chief of both the CIO and the steelworkers Union said if no settlement with steel firms is reached by April 4 the unions will give 96 hours no- tice and strike

accompanied by compensating price increases Steelmakers have said an ex- additional price lowance is too little to cover an- extra labor costs The statement of WSB industry members said the proposals are union appeasement and mated they would cost the steel industry 30 cents an hour direct added labor costs immediately and eventually 60 cents These figures were disputed by WSB Chairman Nathan P er
