Hagerman Eagle Square strike Over seniority rights defined Shaftsbury production at the Eagle Square mfg. Co. Began moving Back to Normal Friday night following settlement of a dispute that had led the Large majority of the workers Union membership to go out Ona a Wildcat Quot strike thursday morning. The ice was broken about 6 . When the Union membership overwhelmingly voted to accept a proposal made by the company giving key recognition to seniority in the filling of production Job vacancies. It was the Issue of seniority which had touched off the strike. Management a proposition was in the words of one Union official �?o99 per cent Quot of what the striking workers had sought and in the View of another was actually somewhat better than the proposal which the Union membership at a meeting during the afternoon had directed its negotiating committee to seek. Originally the company had said it considered the strike to be in violation of the contract which it has with the Union local 645 of the upholsterers International Union us and that for this reason it would not discuss the seniority Issue until the Idle workers went Back to their jobs. The striking group which represented about 85 per cent of the Union membership and company production workforce in response had said it wanted to talk before it went Back to work. The company thus appeared to have Given ground when it agreed late Friday afternoon to meet with the Union s negotiating committee and discuss the new contract provision which the Union membership had indicated it wanted to obtain. The company a counteroffer which differed from the Union s primarily in its greater spelling out of the procedure to be followed in the filling of Job vacancies was promptly accepted by the striking Union membership Union officials then reported that some workers on the regular night shift were expected to be Back at work Friday night and a number More on the Day shift to return to their jobs today. Under the personnel policy spelled out by the company just prior to the strike where two or More applicants for a particular vacancy were considered by the company to have essentially equal qualifications for the Job then the Man with the longer company service would be Given the Job. Under the company a new proposal accepted by the Union seniority will now be Given greater recognition and the Union itself will be More directly involved in the selection of applicants for Job vacancies. Basically the new procedure to be used is the following the company will make the initial selection of an applicant for an open Job a notice of which vacancy will have been previously posted. If this Man is of Junior seniority rank compared to the other applicants manage ment will then meet with a previously established special Union committee and will explain the reasons for selecting the Junior Man. If the Union has no grievance then the selected Man will simply be notified that he has the new Job. If however the Union committee disagrees on the com see strike Page 2, col. 6 sends More examiners Washington up a atty. Gen. Nicholas Katzenbach Friday dispatched Federal voting examiners to help Register negroes in 12 counties in Mississippi Alabama South Carolina and Louisiana. They were expected to Start listing voters Early next week. In his stiffest action under the new voting rights act Katzenbach also demanded a speedup in registration to get new voters qualified before state elections next Spring and summer. Friday s action listed counties in South Carolina for the first time. And altogether it was the largest number of counties designated by Katzenbach at one time since the act was signed into Law by president Johnson.

The two counties in South Carolina a Clarendon and Dorchester a were the first to be designated in that state. The attorney general also named West Feliciana Paris county in Louisiana.

He previously designated 20 counties �?9 in Mississippi 7 in Alabama and 4 in Louisiana a for assignment of Federal examiners.
