Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - January 11, 1963, Mason City, Iowa HOME EDITION Tht newspoper that makes oil North lowans neighbors MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE VOL IK tte Paper ot Two SectionsSection MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY JANUARY 11 1963 No 287 More Yanks to leave Cuba New look on job security Pilot plan at Kaiser By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTON Steel in dustry sources are predicting output for a little above 100 million tons in 1963 for the first time in six years Production last year came to slightly more than 98 million tons Now the United Steelworkers of America estimate that the steel industry can pour 105 mil lion tons and employ no more than 450000 fulltime production workers As recently as 1951 it took 567000 workers to produce 105 million tons of steel Rising productivity means that more steel can be produced by fewer steel workers It is estimated that some 100000 steel workers are unemployed at present And many of the jobs men are out of have just dis appeared In addition to installing such laborsaving devices as the ox ygen furnace steel companies are investing inelectronic com puters to run rolling mills sintering plants and annealing lines Automation p r o c e e d s apace throughout the industry The traditional answer of the Steelworkers to technological unemployment has been to de mand that the work week be shortened Even now the union is pointing out that the average work week in the industry is at present only about 35 hours But union and management have come up with a new ap proach in the Fontana Calif plant of Kaiser Steel Corp Basically the plan works like this Productivity of workers will be measured monthly against a previously agreed upon base period The workers will get 325 per cent of all savings com ing from increased productivity In other words if the cost of pouring a ton of steel is reduced that amount will go into a sharing fund the workers share being 325 per cent of the fund In addition Kaiser workers 7900 of them including 1200 now laid off would get bene fits similar to those granted by other steel makers And the con tract provides for an employ mcnt pool and other devices to cushion the impact of automa tion Kaiser workers are voting on the plan If accepted it goe into effect on March 1 The Kaicer contract if ap proved will be studied at a meeting of the management union Human Relations Commit tee for the steel industry the committee will hear progress reports from subcommittees The aim is to accelerate it study of nonwage problems vacation scheduling contracting out of work work assignment arid the like The 1962 industrywide con tract can be reopened for bar gaining on May 1 The union ha a right to strike 90 days there after The Kaiser plan is no likely to be an issue The union looks upon it as a kind of pilo operation and management out side of Kaiser is frankly leery of it More likely to be demanded Is a shorter work week The Steelworkers at their 1962 con vention called for legislation to cut the work week to 35 hours A strike is most unlikely Workers still feel the wounds and the loss in wages of almost a man from the mar athon 116day strike in 1959 And the companies remember that the 1959 idleness encouraged a 1 r e a d ypinching competition from steel imports They know too they can lose money from an inventory build up in anticipation of a strike and the subsequent letdown RIDING A WHALE Skindiver Wil liam A De Court rides on the back of Photofax with a fish net and line in which he was tangled The whale didnt resist
