Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - June 22, 1956, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for the Home MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH 1OWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL LX1I Associated Press and United Full Seven Cents a Copy MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY JUNE 22 1954 Gird for Lengthy Strike May Invoke TH Law WASHINGTON officials Friday privately ex pressed increasing concern over the possibility of a iengthy steel strike but said for the time be ing they intend to keep out of the bargaining However it was reported that if the industry and Steelworkers Union still are stuck in their ent stalemate by the middle of next week the government may take a new look at the advisabil ity of intervening A strike is feared by adminis tration officials not only because it would upset the economy but also because it would present del icate labor problems for decision in a campaign year Steel Showdown Should a walkout come Presi d e n t Eisenhower presumably would have to consider invoking the national emergency provisions of the TaftHartley law This could lead to an 80day court in junction against continuing the walkout and possibly postpone a steel showdown until close to the elections Officials see no likelihood that Eisenhower will invoke the TH Act before the expiration of the present steel contract at midnight June 30 The United Siechvmlpr Unions contract expires at that time and the union sent notices to its locals Thursday to prepare for a strike on that date if no agreement is reached The reason for avoiding any prestrike application of the law is that experience of the past has showed bargaining stops once dis putants realize a strike is to be postponed for 80 days The day of reckoning is merely postponed and the delay serves to worsen the dispute U S Mediation The problem now before the government is whether to let the parties glide toward the strike deadline left to their own de vices to seek a settlement or whether the federal mediation service should step in to try to get the negotiations off dead cen ter Right now the official view is to let the industry and union keep at it a while longer on their own But if there is not some change Mediation Service Director Jo seph F Finnegan probably wLl enter the case perhaps switching the negotiations from New York to Washington for a final show down There is considerable specula tion in Washington that the pres ent impasse in the negotiations is not so bad as it appears Industry leaders have said for Thts Paper Consists of Two One Weather Moves Into State
