Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - February 26, 1963, Mason City, Iowa Church unity grows See story page 2 HOME EDITION Reuther asks flexible week MIAMI BEACH Fla Walter Reuther said Tuesday he favors a flexible work week shifted according to changes m economic winds rather than the rigid 35hour week advo catedby most other AFLCIO leaders Reuther head of the Auto Workers Union said in an in terview that he was not opposed to a straight slash in the present 40hour work week as called for by fellow federation leaders I just happen to prefer the flexible week idea he said Reuther said a 35hour week could badly hurt some indus tries and actually cause increased unemployment Instead he proposed a formula that would reduce the standard work week automatically and progressively as unemployment reached prescribed levels The details are not important he said Its a concept of a full employment week There would be a payroll tax to accumulate a national fund if the work week should fall to say a 37hour week Payments from the fund would provide 40hour regular pay to employes working the temporary 37hour wefek They would get additional overtime for work after 37 hours If there was practically full as Reuther suggested an idle rate of no more than 2 to 25 per cent it is now 58 per would stay on a regular 40 hour week What we really want Reuther said is not morelei sure but full 40hour wages and work for everybody If the economy cannot provide enough jobs the equalization fund from payroll tax collections would continue 40hour pay but on a reduced workweek basis The AFLCIO Executive Council was expected to issue a new appeal for its 35hour week goal at windup sessions Tues day The council held 10day winter meetings here The newspaper that makes all North lowans
