Feather, speaking at a luncheon of the Commonwealth Correspondents' Association, did not specify what clauses of the huge 139-page bill he was talking about. The chief executive of the nine-million-member TUC said it was "incredible stupidity to think you can import something from the United States and impose it on us." "Canada," he added, "loses five times as much production as we do through strikes and we resist the same type of legislation as in Canada." Employment Minister Robert Carr's bill, expected to have a long and rough ride through Parliament in the next few months, provides for heavy penalties against unions for breaching agreements and would set up a new legal code for curbing wildcat strikes. There would be a 60-day cooling-off period on strikes threatening a national emergency. The legislation, Feather said, is "a con game on the British public." OBJECTS TO TERMS He said the TUC objects to provision that would make labor-management contracts legally binding unless otherwise specified in an agreement. "If I were a washing machine salesman, I'd welcome this," he added. Feather said the bill would make a contract legally binding at the instance of one signatory -though its vaguely-worded terms do not appear to say so specifically-and he hinted that the TUC might consider advis ing unions not to enter agreements if the measure goes through in its present form. "The bill would give an unfair advantage to employers," said Feather, whose congress is launching a $600,000 campaign against it. "I'd be more impressed if any Tory government had ever done anything to help swing the balance of power toward the unions."

PRESSMEN STRIKE Some 600,000 subscribers to the Pittsburgh Press, an evening newspaper, and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the morning paper, got their news from radio and television stations Monday after 230 mem-bers of Pressmen's Local 9 went on strike against The Press The Post-Gazette is printed in was conniving in violent activity against Soviet institutions in the U.S. McCloskey said the U.S. would hold the Soviet Union responsible for any retaliation against U.S. officials or institutions. McCloskey said the U.S. has repeatedly condemned acts of violence against Soviet offices here and in New York. Washington is taking progressive measures to prevent further in- cidents, he added.
