Hull runt lot nov a control the very forces who have protested to the High heavens against governmental interference in our system of free Enterprise today have the Driver s reins and Are dashing hell Bent toward government control. Of course it is just government control of labor that Thev Are interested in. They have the strange idea a hat democracy can travel a split Road Hall of it the labor or human half the Road of state control and the property half the Road of free Enterprise Thev propose to limit severely of prohibit the right to strike in essential industries. They seek to destroy the strength of unions by prohibiting them from acting on an Industry wide basis. They would restore the use of injunctions such As were used to wreck labor after the last War. In Short they would return us to the situation of the 20s. When unions were prostrate when profits soared while consumer purchasing Power represented in wages stood still they would Lead us a not he disastrous depression. Then All of the National to. Y would fall inevitably under go ment direction and control. Off but Why can t / up my anti labor Bill first letters suggests shop Portal solutions so by As an officer of a local must Star tin signature of the president and Secretary and the Union Seal. This is to avoid the impression an officer May be speaking for a local unless that is the Case if ask Al Cio a. J.

Age factory wage is Only $45 a week when everyone knows living need in this nation is not government of unions but genuine collective bargaining which Many of our Large industrialists Are not willing to subscribe to. The of editor the Sun we have been hearing and and the Senate Are pouring swarms of Bills into the legislative machinery. There Are Bills designed to outlaw the closed and Union shops and All other forms of Union Security Bills to compel unions to bargain with individual Plant managements rather than the True owners of paid. Misconstrue Portal suit issues too much nonsense is v4ng spread about the pin Tal to Portal suits by Union members and it is obvious that they Are taking their Cue from the labor baiting articles in the local press. Now Congress which is the highest legislative authority m the land passed the wage and hour act for the Benefit of working people the supreme court is the highest judicial tribunal in the land and in interpret my the wage and hour Law it held that the time spent from the Tima clock to the place of work and i a make ready time Quot were Bompensa under the Law unless the time so consumed is a a few seconds or a few minutes now 1 done to think that any worker should be ashamed of asking for what Congress and the supreme court of the United states say be is entitled to. We can rest assured that if the shoe were on the other foot the employer would demand All his rights. Of course Many workers Wal he entitled to nothing because the time consumed will be too i Little or the company has w Ink i de at the employee dressing pm the company s time. Now everyone will agree that a Miner who spends forty Nim utes in a mine car travelling from the head of the pit to the lace of operation is entitled to pay. Similarity everyone will agree that a worked who spends two minutes or less m travel or make ready time per Day should receive no pay. The question remaining is at what Point the legislature and the courts will determine travel time and make ready time should be a mass of that a family cannot be supported adequately on that sum at present living costs Reading much about Portal to injunctions against a a a a i at nit Tulini a a to it democratic privileges which lab Vav Nat we need in this nation is not government control pot Tal Pav i think it by attempt ,.

Nathan for the Cio was Given in an Exchange of correspondence by tween Wallace and Lubin made Public Jan. 6, in which the two upheld the View that such a wage increase would still leave business with profits equal to those of 1929, the nations most profit Able year.

A solution to these problems should be worked out in each shop by the employees and employers As conditions Are so different that no rules or regulations can be applied to All shops but each one can work out a solution of their problem use partly. Or. Lora Nace labor. He state of Ohio front organizations for Industry Are shaping similar a aws. The proposed amendment to the Ohio Constitution to outlaw the Union and closed it hop is a Sample. A moreover the National association of manufacturers the Chambers of Commerce and the National Metal trades Assoc a Lon have launched a Campaign of falsehood and trickery to smash thee forts of the unions to pull our members out of the economic pit to which they the corporations Bills to invoke y obviously the suits had to be filed at once As Congress is about to pass legislation restricting the filing of these suits and it is further obvious that the suits had to be filed for Large amounts giving the employees the Bent lit Tif the doubt in reference to the time that we expect Congress and the courts to fix As compensable. Every attorney in damage suits claims the maximum amounts in these suits and if he did the would be doing his clients it Dis Scricc by monopoly we know Board adopts hides on letters the executive Board of Cio have been cast prices. A the dangers we know Are As evident to you and the other leaders and members of the american federation of labor As they Are to us. A the time has come for the House of labor to unite to meet this vicious attack. The greater Cincinnati Industrial Union Council Cio urges the Central labor Council to join with us in summoning a greater Cincinnati conference of Union leaders Cio Al and the honest independents to map out a concerted Campaign to beat Jaccoi singly after Congress and the courts fix the minimum time which is not compensable we will know precisely How much the employees Are entitled to get. It should further be stated in of Der to Correct a local column a Itiat no one can be included m these suits without his Sun mauve action.
