The board recommended a peu- 'sion and insurance system which 'it estimated would be the equiva- lent of about ten cents an hour per employe in payroll costs. i The C.I.O. steel workers union ;had threatened a strike of a million .workers, starting at 12.01 a.m., next Wednesday to back up its tle- .mand for a 30 cents an hour "pack- iage" increase. i The union had wanted 12.5 cents an hour in added wages, 11.23 for pensions and 6.27 for insurance. Acceptance Pending- Whether the union would accept the recommendations of the fact- finding board set up by the presi- dent remained to be seen. The rec- ommendations are not binding on either party. The board's pension recommen- dation called for S100 monthly old age payments when added to gov- ernment social security benefits. The recommendations were filed with President Truman this fjre- noon and released to reporters shortly thereafter for publication later in the day. There were indications the strike may be postponed to permit bar- gaining on the basis of the board's recommendations, which were con- tained in an 80-page report.
