WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17, 1948 Oak Ridge Strike May Be Enjoined President May Use New Power Given by Toft-Hortley Law i „ „ By Laurence Gondcr Unlled Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, March n (UP) -Informed sources said todav Pres- Idcnt Truman will order the Justice Department within two clavs to get r.n Injunction to halt n threatened strike at the Oak Rid B e, Tenn., c laboratories. ,tt will he the first injunction night by the government under (lie National Emergency Provision of the Taft-Haniey Labor Act The Oak Ridge strike is scl for midnight Friday. K die court srants Ihe Injunction, and it ij« expected (o, it would forbid n walkout at the giant atomic laboratories tot about 80 days. The dispute at Oak nidge involves the APL Atomic Trades and kabor Council ami the Carbide and Carbon Corp., which operates the laboratories lor (lie U. S, Atom.? Energy Commission. The union and company liave been unable to ccacn agreement on a new contract, Kenneth Scott, one of (lie union's chief negotiators, told the United Press "it will be impossible lo settle on K new contract before the Friday strike, deadline." Scott saicl the union will meet with company representatives for negotiation sessions today. But. he added, "we're still pretty far apart." SWJ Workers Effected Tile AFL union repiesenus about 800 production employes at tho atomic- plant. The expected government request for an injunction is the second part of the Tuft-Hartley Act's m.-- chinery for presidential action in disputes endangering the national' health or safety. The first step already has been taken. That was Mr. Truman's appointment of a public hoard of inquiry earlier this month to study tlie labor controversy and report the facts lo him. The union orlgi- M'ly had threatened to strike 'JKrch 5 hut it postponed the walk- oTit for the duration of the fact- finding inquiry. The board made public its reixn't yesterday. "Tlie issues in dispute remain unsettled and the throat of a strike unaltered." the board said. "The Atomic Energy Commission asserts that grave danger to the national safely will result" if'operations of this laboratory are interrupted. And, we find this to be the fact."
