Union leaders representing less than one-tenth of railroad employes reject recommendations of President's Emergency board—refuse to negotiate except an their own terms—threaten to paralyze nation by strike! THE LPADEHS of tlin-o railroad unions, representing less than onu-l.;nlh of all railroad employees, have tailed a railroad strike that would paral.v/e the mil ion. These leaders refuse to accept a 15'i; cents an hour wage increase retroactive to November 1, 1947. This iiv.'i'.aso WHS recommended by an impartial Emer./ Board appointed by President Tr:iman. This increase of 1! !j cents already has been accepted by the 19 other railroad unions. But the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, (he Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen, and the Switchmen's Union of North America won't accept what more than 90% of all railroad employes have accepted. They have called a strike to get more! Unions refuse rules discussion Certain i-.ilcs changes demanded by these union haders—which would increase wages still (urther — wore recommended by the Board. Rut (he union leaders want more— they dermnd that the railroads put into effect ALL (he changes they asked (or, including those ;the Board felt should be denied. On (op of this, they insist that certain rules changes proposed by the railroads be withdrawn—in spite of the fact that the Board recommended them! These union leaders have refused to negotiate except upon these arbitrary terms. Grater wage increase not justified Engineers and firemen are among the highest pejd of all employes in America, as figures in the bo.x show. This strike threat doesn't justify giviflg » 8*' e ?^r r increase than other railroad workers received. Emergency Boards are a means provided by the Railway Labor Act in the public interest to qvpid strikes. The President's Board; after hearing evidence for 33 days, made recommendations based on all the facts in the case. The railroads have accepted these recommcndatians. Who's to blame? Although they deplored so large an extra cost burden, the railroads accepted the report of the Board because they felt it was in the public interest to uphold the spirit and intent of the Railway Labor Act. In contrast, this small group of railroad union leaders are attempting to flout the intent and spirit of the Railway Labor Act, and dictate their own terms. They have dictated a paralyzing railroad strike. You will be the victim! How long will the American public stand for the undemocratic, arbitrary, and abusive use of the right to strike and the disregard of the obligation to provide transportation? How long can the American people permit a few dictatorial union leaders to defy the processes provided for peaceful settlement of disputes? Force seldom produces settlements that are either fair or lasting. Moreover, a point is often reached when personal interests must be held subordinate to the greater public welfare. That is why the railroads have accepted the Emergency Board recommendations. That is also why the leaders of these three unions should reconsider their decision to call a paralyzing strike. Compare these wages with what you make! Here is a comparison of average annual earnings of engineers and fireman for 1939 (pre-war) and 1947. Also shown is what 1947 earnings would have been if the 15Va cents per hour increase, offered by the railroads and rejected by the union leaders, had been in effect throughout the entire year 1947.
