Established 1885 16 Pages 15c Per Copy 90: Weekly Carrier AABC Plans Shutdown Of Waterbury Tube Mills The economy of the Naugatuck Valley was struck another blow today by the announcement that a tentative decision has been made lo close the Wolerbury Tube Mill, a division of Anaconda American Brass Co. due lo excessive tabor costs. Willard T. Chamberlain, (resident of Ihe Anaconda Brass Division, said today: "Al a series of meetings held today with our Waterbury Tube Mill employees, we informed them of our tentative decision to terminate all tube manufacturing operations in Waterbury, Conn, by November 30. "The operations scheduled for closing consist of the Small Tube Mill (formerly the French Small Tube Division) on Robbins St. and the East and West Tube Mills located in our manufacturing complex off Bank St. The products manufactured in these mills include copper and alloy tube for plumbing; copper refrigeration lube; copper and alloy redraw tube; small diameter specialty lube; and large-diameter copper and alloy tube [or military and industrial applications. It is planned lo transfer (he manufacture of these products to other Brass Division tube mills in Ihe United Stales when Ihe Waterbury facilities are shut down. "The Waterbury Tube Mills row provide employment for 460 men and women, generating a gross annual payroll of almost $7 lillion. Taxes of over J700.0QO e paid lo Ihe City o!

However, Ihe question lhal arises in my mind as to DK manner in which this has bees carried out in the Naugatuck area. I have had numerous calls from Conn. Light & Power cu stomers w ho have had Iheir service disconnected in the lale afternoon of a given day. Generally the disconnection is made so late that it is impossible to contact anyone in authority al the company in order to resolve the situation. The only individual that I have been able to speak lo is a dispatcher whose only authority is to reconnect the service only on the condition that payment in lull is received in tilher cash or cerlified check. "I have seen this procedure followed on many occasions and very frankly il appears lo me lhal the reason why the procedure is followed'is to put an extreme amount of pressure on the customer lo pay a bill in total, although the financial means of Ihe customer may be extremely limited. I recall one specific instance during the winter of 197576 when ] received a call from a C.L.i P customer at about 5 p.m. on a bitterly cold day.
