Miner pact wins Okay for 1st year by Bill Neikirk Washington pay Board okayed the first year of the new Coal Industry contract by a 10-3 vote Friday in a key test of president Nixon s phase ii wage guidelines. The agreement easily surpasses the Board s wage guideline of 5.5 per cent a year for new contracts although even the Board s members disagreed on hew much the Coal miners Are to receive in the first year of the pact. The five labor and five management members approved the contract signed just 15 minutes before Nixon s wage Price freeze ended at Midnight nov. 13. But three of the five Public members said in a statement that such an increase in wages clearly runs against the goal of the stabilization Effort. They said the actual hourly compensation amounts to a 16.8 per cent increase in the first year. The management members said 4 per cent of the increase goes to make the Union s welfare fund solvent and the balance of the increase 11 per cent for salaries is allowable As a catchup wage hike. As the Board announced its action United mine workers president w. A. Tony Boyle issued a statement saying that the entire three year contract re that the entire three year contract re ported to Call for a 39 per cent increase is binding since the Board has no jurisdiction beyond next april 30. We Are therefore calling upon All Jmwa members to return to work with out delay so that they May reap the benefits of the new Boyle said. Mine workers have remained on strike pending a pay Board review of the contract. The Board voted that the first year of the contract is not unreasonably inconsistent with its Over a wage guideline of 5.5 per cent. That is its Rule for existing contracts those that were signed before the new stabilization plan went into effect. Pay Board chairman George Boldt and one other Public member abstained but both Siad they would have United nations n. Y. A communist chinese Delegate denounced the saudi arabian ambassador Friday for expressing Shock at reports of a chinese nuclear test explosion. Our development of nuclear weapons is for self defense and it is a limited development and every time when we test we make a statement that we will not be the first ones to use such a weapon we will denounce such voted against approval if they had cast a vote. Normally the Coal contract would have gone into effect without a pay Board vote. But two Days ago acting under its rules the Board voted to review the contract to determine if it fit guidelines for existing contracts. It is highly improbable that the rate of inflation will be reduced significantly to meet the goal of the stabilization Effort if increases of this magnitude Are the three Public members said. They said however they would have allowed an Over All boost of 12.5 per cent including a 4.1 per cent Rise to take into account a shortage in the Union s health and welfare fund. The management members said the increase to take care of the health and welfare fund has no flow through effect on pay but goes to protect and contains existing benefits to retired and disabled miners. Therefore it does not adversely affect the objective of reducing Infra labor hostile to Nixon talk bal Harbour Nix on Friday appealed Here to the Al Cio to cooperate with his phase ii economic controls but declared that he would proceed with his program whether we get that participation or the president addressed1 the biennial convention of the american federation of labor and Congress of Industrial organizations a Day after the convention mandated its representatives on the phase n pay Board to adopt a policy of noncom Perandon.
