VHI iii ME 92 - NUMBER 330 LO npicb (SttjeHt CITY FINAL 15 CENTS NIXOH CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1974 Sees Mines Reopening By Monday WASHINGTON (AP) - United Mine Workers President Arnold Miller Thursday announced approval of a nationwide contract by a vote of 56 percent in favor. He said he was confident most coal mines will reopen Monday. Ratification came after the strike moved into its fourth week and threatened to seriously further disrupt the economy. Miller announced that UMW members voted 44,754 in favor and 34,741 against. Five of the 18 districts rejected the three-year pact. ‘‘Full Democracy” Miller said the minority would: go along. He said the voting! represented ‘‘full democracy in; the United Mine Workers.” Immediately after announcing the results at a news conference, Miller signed the agreement with Walter Wallace, pres-1 ident of the Bituminous Coal! Operators Assn. The industry group’s chairman, N. T. Camicia, said the! contract while “very costly fori the industry,” would benefit the1 miners and “serve the public in-1 terest as well by providing im- ; proved productivity and greater' stability of production” in the! coal mines. Camicia said operators should make immediate preparations to open their mines.
