LETHBRLDGE, ALBERTA, TUESDAY, MAY 28, 1946 10 PAGES Big Unions Are Roused -At Truman WASHINGTON', May United States unions, boa- ing with political wrath for President Truman, dropped some oblique hints today that they might switch to another standard bearer, with Commerce Secretary Henry A. Wallace and Senator Claude Pepper Fla.) heading the list of accept- There was no immediate ac- tion of a concrete nature, but three powerful labor organiza- tions kept up a heavy drumfire of criticism on tbe program Mr. Truman proposed Saturday for coping with strikes in vital in- dustries during the reconversion period. WILD HYSTERIA President Philip Murray of the Congress of Industrial Organizations in a telegram to all senators con- tended that "in a moment of wild hysteria an attempt is being made to stampede through congress leg- islation which has as its sole aim the destruction of the labor move- meat of this nation." President William Green of the American Federation of Labor an- nounced the bill as advocating "slave labor under fascism." As the swo big unions hit out at Mr. Truman's proposals, the United Automobile Workers failed to obtain de- mands for a 25-cent an hour wage increase, 40-bonr week and union security clauses. Two previous conferences had failed to reach a solotion. MOVE TO VICTORIA The union is expected to com- plete the statement of its case to- dav. following which negotiations win move to Victoria where Chief Justice Sloan u-ai hear the oper- ators' side of the dispute. He win then make recommenda- tions to both on .how he believes the strika can settled.

The 30 arrested at Thorold were from the picket lines to the county I unions, farm, veterans' and com- either party. Meanwhile. B.C. government in- tervention in the strike is fnz goal of a planned mass looby lit Vic- toria. The lobby win be made up thousands of striking, in addition to representatix'es and supporters of the" province's trade of jail at Welland last night where they were remanded in custody for. one week. Those arrested were only a frac- tion of the men on strike. The union claimed that 61 ships had been tied up from Montreal to lae lakehead. The owners asserted that only 17 out of 115 ships had been by the strike. The owners were recruiting any available men to replace strikers. CHARGES CONTRACT BROKEN George R. Donovan of Toronto, secretary of the Dominion Marine association and spok for the WANTS BARLEY TAKEN FROM BREWERIES EDMONTON. May Dr. R. C. Chalmers of Toronto, said ship operators, charged the union had broken its contract which still had to run to July 31. Sullivan Countered that it was the operators who broke the con- tract, not the union. He wired Federal Labor Minister Mitchell that the operators violated the con- tract by refusing to allow a union delegate to board a vessel in Mont- real: by dismissing union crewmen; by making a separate application to the national war labor board on questions of wages and hours be- fore the contract had expired, and by reclassifying ratings before get- ting the labor board's permission. An estimated 13 ships were re- ported tied up at various points along the Welland Canal: half a dozen more at Cornwall. Other ves- sels were scattered at ports all along the Great Lakes. And in the Maritimes three fed- eral department of transport lighters were tied up by the at CharlottetowB and two at Saint John. ARRESTS "DISGRACE- TORONTO, May B.

EDMONTON, aiay 28 Mayor Harry Ainlay said today that Ed- monton's city commissioners had decided to recommend to the city council a 40-hour work week for all munity organizations at the invita- tion the I.W.A. The new mrr.e is based on assertion the provincial government has taken no stand in the dispute except to call the strike aiegai ana that the government should "compel the operators to meet the just demands of tte union."

EMPLOYERS RESPONSIBLE LW.A. District President Harold Pritchett telegraphed Mr. Tisley that the union is "prepared to do everything humanly possible to bring about a just settlement of the strike" and urged federal govern- ment intervention "to force the lumber operators who stand in the way of crop harvesting, to accept the union's proposals on wages and hours and abide by the award of arbitrator Sloan on union secur- ity." He contended that employers tbe woodworking industry -'are fully responsible for delay in insincere efforts during nine weeks of nego- tiations" and in the interior "have refused to sign an agreement since 1944."

He said the failure would result in huge in- creases of income and corporation taxes. Alberta sacrificed more prin- ciple, for the sake of an agreement, than any other province, he said. Apart from the depressing eSect of duplicate taxation, business will stagnate until the tax position is clarified. Although Ontario and Quebec scuttled the conference.
