Associated Press and United Press International Full Lease Wires UUc a copyjThis Paper Conssits of Two SectionsSection One MASON CITY IOWA TUESDAY MAY 8 1962 IBad year7 1 for labor disputes Big pacts not settled By JOSEPH R SLEV1N New York Herald Tribune Service WASHINGTON William E Simkin the husky quietspoken director of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service predicts that the rest of 19G2 will be a year of bitter labormanagement dis pules People call me a pessimist Simkin said in an interview I think its going to be a bad year very difficult year The mediation chief said the quick and peaceful steel settle ment has been a helpful de velopment but he declared that he doubts that other collective bargaining negotiations will fol low the moderate steel agree ment The basic problem is that theres no wage increase for the first year and that the major benefits go into job security Simkin said I dont think we can be assured that will be a general pattern The next big industry coming up is aerospace There are 30odd major contracts The first is aero jet on May 27 They run all the way into September Weve got the can industry coming Weve got aluminum and the East Coast longshore and a whole host of construction con tracts Those are beginning to hit now Scattered all across the country are dozens of construc tion contracts that expire in the next couple of months Those are the really big ones in terms of a large number of employees We dont anticipate any of them to be simple Simkin is a 55yearold profes sional arbitrator who has served as a permanent arbitrator in the steel rubber shipbuilding North Iowa rayon apparel andbus transporta tion industries The mediation chief said he thinks this will be a bad year partly because union negotiators will become tougher as the country becomes more prosperous but primarily because bargaining is sues are growing more complex No 7i ATLANTIC CITY NJ President Kennedy told labor Tuesday that unjustified wage demands which require price in creases are as much against the national interest as unjustified profit demands which require price increases He said I speak with a single voice to the men on both sides of the nations bargaining tables when I say that your sense RECEIVES Most Rev James J Byrne new archbishop of Dubuque receives the shepherds staff of authority from Archbishop Egi dio Vagnozzi personal representative of Pope John Photofax XXIII in the United States The installation cere monies look place at St Raphaels Cathedral in Du buque PARTIY CLOUDY The unions are responding to automation by pushing elaborate job security demands while the employers are pressing increas ingly for contract changes that will allow them to run their opera tions more efficiently Simkin ex plained Were getting more cases of companies mostly medium and small where the company is running into financial difficulties and comes in with a whole host of bargaining demands In some of these cases bargaining for the first time is getting to be a two way street There were a surprising num ber of instances last year where new contracts were signed with no wage increase and sometimes even with wage cuts and with changes in working conditions that were not improvements for the union These were rough cases The trend is away from the amount of the wage increase being the dominant issue Ten or 15 years ago if you got the wage increase settled the other mat ters were easy Now in a lot of cases the amount of the wage increase issues cooler Partly Clear Tuesday night lows in upper 30s

Sunrise Sunset YEAR AGO Maximum 74 Minimum 45 is one of the simpler Simkin stressed that lutomation actually is only one aspect of a widening union demand for great er job and income security These issues are highly com plicated for example pensions highly complicated from a technical and cost point of view he said One of the minor changes in one of the automobile pension plans last fall estimated to cost The Genera Motors supplementary un employment benefit plan is as big as the nationwide agreement The same thing is true of the Gener al Motors pension and insurance agreement Fifteen years ago they didnt have either one of these Separation pay and early re tirement plans are other illustra tions of the kind of protection that the unions are seeking Simkin said Then there are the short week payments that came in in the auto industry this year compensation for an employee whos called in to work but doesnt work a whole week That was re solved one way in avitos and an other way in steel Then theres a whole host of ramifications in Army may increase length of training WASHINGTON UPI The Army said Tuesday that it may increase the length of its six month reserve training
