RINGER ELECTRIC SERVICE 640 Frederick St. Phone 3333 THE TELEPHONE STRIKE We did our best to avoid this strike. The Telephone Company is endeavoring to carry out its responsibilities to employees and customers alike. It takes both to keep a business going. We are doing our best to handle all emergency calls. Dial-to-dial calls are on a normal basis. We will continue to do everything we can to settle the strike. Here Is the Principal Issue of the Strike: WAGES The Unions demand a general increase of $11 per week for every employee plus other wage adjustments. Here Is What Unions'Demands Mean-' Increases to employees .ranging from $12 to $33 per week. $15,170,000 annual increase in rfie sost: of providing telephone service in Maryland.- This amounts to an average of S3.79 per month for each subscriber we serve. It is 6 times the total earnings of the Company in 1946. Here Is the Company's Position: Employees should be—and are—well paid. Wage adjustments in fche last 6 years represent a 56/o increase in basic wages. Telephone wages should compare favorably with wages paid by other businesses in this community for work requiring similar skill and training. To make sure they do, we are continually comparing telephone wages with other .wages in the eom-munity. Based on these comparisons, we find no justification for increases in telephone wage rates. Here Is What The Company Has Offered: We have offered to renew with the Unions for 3 or 6 months or longer,* our liberal contracts, which would continue in effect ALL EXISTING WAGE and WORKING CONDITIONS, includ- • ing PROGRESSION INCREASES and SENIORITY. At the end of the renewal period new contracts would be negotiated in the light of the then existing conditions. THIS OFFER STILL STANDS We have offered to arbitrate locally our baste wage rates. We believe our wages are fair. The unions disagree. THEN, WHY NOT PUT IT UP TO AN IMPARTIAL BOARD OF ARBITRATORS? If they decide that higher wages are warranted, the Company will abide by the decision. Could anything be fairer? THIS OFFER STILL STANDS *0ne union, (Maryland Telephone Traffic Union, Inc.) has agreed to a renewal but its members are refusing to report for work. The acceptance of either proposal would have averted this strike and even now would stop it immediately The Chesapeake & Potomac Telephone Company of Baltimore City
