Four out of five telephone people are in these groups. The basic work period is a 5-day, 40- hour week. Scheduled employees arc paid overtime for time worked over 8 hours a day, premium time for Sunday and holiday work, and added money for evening and night work. Operators Here a girl just out of high school, with no previous experience, starts at the beginner's rate of 526 a week. But if she works after 9 p.m., she gets $27.50 a week, and if that week includes Sunday work, she gets $30.10. The beginning operator gets a raise in pay at the end of the first six months and at the end of the first year. An operator with 18 months' experience, for example, gets $28 for a normal 40-hour week. If it includes evenings and Sunday, she earns 532.30. Periodic increases bring the operator to the top rate of $34 a week, if she works evenings and Sundays, her weekly earnings are $38.90. But the union wants to increase the beginner's rate of pay from $26 to $41—up $15 a week. Also, they would increase the top wages from $34 to $51, an increase of $17 a week. Plant Craftsmen Here linemen and installers, starting in right out of school with no experience, begin at $28 for a basic 5-day week. In two years they arc earning $35.50 a week. Periodic increases raise this basic rate to a top of $56 a week. Exchange repairmen—the men who take SOUTHWESTERN BELL care of repairing the equipment in your office or n'ornn —reach a top rate of $58. Overtime and other extra p.iy during liio past year have increased the wages of most linemen, installers, and exchange repairmen substantially. The union asks Hint the boginnrng wage rates of these Plant workers bo raised from $28 to $43, up $1? a week. The jmion wo_uld_a!sp_incrcase the $56 top w.igc^^o J78 and the $58 top to $80. Those would bo increases of $22 a wccl,-. We believe most people will agree that present wages are good. The company believes that no increases are justified at this time. The way to resolve these 'differences of opinion and settle the strike is to arbitrate the wage issue. That would be fair to our employees, to telephone users, and to the company. Nearly two weeks ago the company proposed that the governors of the five states in which we operate appoint a panel of five impartial citizens—men with a knowledge of conditions in this area—to arbitrate the wage issue. The company enlarged its offer to include not only basic wages but such other demands as length of time for employees to reach top .wage rates and wage differentials between different communities. The company urges union officials to reconsider the offer of arbitration. It is the fair way to settle the strike, restore full telephone service to the public, and get the telephone wage issue decided equitably, j. TELEPHONE COMPANY
