WASHINGTON (AP) - President Johnson gets a report today on the last-ditch railroad bargaining talks he arranged in an effort to avert a nationwide strike.
Johnson will hear from federal mediators what was originally scheduled as a report on “the progress and the effectiveness” of the first five days of the emergency talks following a 15-day strike postponement.
A highly cautious White House spokesman Tuesday refrained from even referring to it as a “progress” report.
“There is nothing thus far that in any way could be characterized as either progress or a set-back,” he said.
The White House went to considerable pains to deny published reports that the talks could be described as optimistic.
“To characterize what is happening either in terms of optimism or pessimism is a disservice not only to the negotiations themselves but to accurate reporting,” the spokesman said.
No specific time was set for the mediators’ report to Johnson but most of the President’s official morning schedule was routine and there was a big gap between 12:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.
This led to speculation that the mediators, headed by Secretary of Labor W. Willard Wirtz, might make their report sometime in the early afternoon.
“I want to make it clear that I do not know whether ... the mediators will be able to say that progress has been made in the sense of ‘we have moved within IO feet of a solution’ or See REPORT, Page 2
