B 45 Settlement in Copper Workers Strike Is Still Beyond the Horizon United Press International SALT LAKE CITY Nov a union leader tabbed the most suc cessful strike in the his tory of the unions in the copper industry was in its 110th day today with a settlement still far be yond the horizon Joseph P Moiony vice pres ident of the United Steelwork ers of America and President of the National Strike Coordi nating Committee hailed the strikes prospects last July 15 when approximately 37000 workers wrtlked off the job THE CRIPPLING nation wide strike followed more than a month of bargaining between the u n i o n s and the big four copper companies Kennecott Copper Corp Ana conda American Smelting and Refining and Phelps Dodge Corp as well as a number of smaller producers El Paso is included Sputtering negotiations have been less than profitable as the unions held out for what they termed satisfactory set tlement of local contract issues as well as an increased uniform wage for all workers SOME PERSONS considered talks with Kennecott as the hub of negotiations with others likely to follow the settlement whenever it was reached in the companys western mining division located in Utah Nevada Arizona and New Mexico B u t KCC representatives and union negotiators have not set much of an example as they haggled off and on under the auspices of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service in Salt Lake City and Washington The original KCC offer which has not been rescinded was made June 7 It amounted to just over 50 cents per hour over a three year period The unions presenteda counter proposal in early Octo ber when Moloney said they iproposed a contract totaling about 93 cents per hour IT APPEARED the two sides were at an impasse and negotiations broke down

sentatives calling for federal help SEN WALLACE F Bennett R Utah introduced a reso lution in the Senate asking the president to invoke section 14 B of the act in order to get workers back on the job for an 80day cooling off period ended But other officials said the use of the strike injunction would only mean a much long er more bitterly fought strike after the coolingoff period ter minated At the urging of the gover nors and others KCC and union representatives resumed meetings under the direction of the conciliation service Oct 3 and continued for 17 d a y s when meetings abruptly broke off and Kennecott filed charges with the N a t i o n a 1 Labor Relations Board in Den ver challenging the propriety of certain union bargaining issues A company spokesman said the unions were
