Jack Gorman, plant manager, in an interview with The NEWS, today said unless additional effort is made soon by the local union the plant could be in a very, very bad condition because of customer problems in two major areas. Gorman said the Waterproof Dept. (Boolroom Depl. A) normally produces 40 to 50 percent of the daily quota needed for two types of boots, Neoprene and Siren (firefighters) boots, and thai they are currently out of stock of both items. He said there are back orders for 10,000 pair which cannot be filled and if the • strike continues customers will leave. The company has competitors in this area who are not out on strike. The second serious problem is in regard to samples. These samples need lo be made "so the plant has a fighting chance to survive after the strike", Gorman said. He noted presently they should be shipping back-to- school orders and some new items cannot be made and therefore cannot be shipped. Samples Needed Gorman said. "We are doing everything we can to hold our customers." He said management has been shipping and producing as much as possible, but "we do not have the talent lo do a lol of the work, Ihe lalenl is contained among Ihe people on strike. Any help producing or making samples we would not turn down," he said. The Uniled Rubber workers strike against the Big Four liubber Companies, Uniroyal, Goodyear, Firestone and Goodrich, is now in ils 62nd day, and no progress has been made in negotiations, with Ihe International DRW remaining firm in ils request for wages and benefits which .would eiiual S965 per hour. The NEWS published an open Idler June 3 lo Gov. Ella Grasso and Sens.
