William Dodge, secretary- treasurer of the CLC, said Mon- day that nothing prevents peo- ple from accepting voluntary mediation or arbitration as a means of settling labor disputes.

"We're greatly concerned about the fact that it would be a very short slep from wide- spread voluntary arbitration to compulsory arbitration imposed by government legislation." George Meany, head of the 16-million member AFL-C10, said Sunday he favors binding arbitration, voluntarily agreed upon, as a substitute for strikes.
