At New York interview he declarer! fc a "paying guest" of U. S. Ivphold. 5,101; sinsillpiix, I.R1M; dlnli JLJccatise wages arc at issue in the telephone strike, let's take a look at what operators and plant craftsmen are now getting. Four out of five telephone people are in these groups. The hasic work period is a 5-day, "40- hour week. Scheduled employees are 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 jusf out of high school, with no previous experience, starts at the beginner's rate of $26 a week. But if she works after 9 p.m., she gets $27.50 3 week, and if that week includes Sunday work, she gets $30.10. The beginning operator gets a raise in pay at tho end of the first six months and at Ihe end of the first year. An operator wilh 18 months' experience, for example, gets §28 for a normal 40-hour week. If it includes evenings and Sunday, she earns $32.30. Periodic increases bring the operator to the top rate of $34 a week. If she works evenings and Sundays, her weekly earnings arc $38.90. But thcMjriipn_wants to increase tho beginner's rate of pay from $26 to $41—up $15 a week. Also, they vould increase the top wages from $34 to $51, an increase of $17 a week. ' Plant Craftsmen Here linemen and installers, starling in right out of school with no experience, begin at $28 for a basic 5-day week. In two years they are earning $35.50 a week. Periodic increases raise this basic rate to a top of $56 a week. Exchange repairmen—the men who tako care of repairing the equipment in your office or home —reach a top rate of $58. Overtime and other extra SOUTHWESTERN BELL What a Telephone Worker Gets: Steady work at good wage*. Regular raises in pay. Good working conditions. Seven holidays with pay. Vacations with pay up to three weeks, depending on length of service. Sickness and death benefits. A pension — with the full costs paid by the company. pay during the past year have increased the wages of most linemen, installers, and exchange repairmen substantially. The union asks that the beginning wage rates of these Plant workers be raised front $28 to $43, up $15 a week. The union would also increase Ihe $56 top wage to $78 and thcl»58 top to"$80. those would be increases of $22 a week. We believe most people will agree that present wages are good. The company believes tbat no increases are justified at < this time. The way to resolve these "differences of opinion nnd settle the strike is to arbitrate the wage issue. That would be fair to our employees, to telephone users, and to the company. ' : The company is trying to settle tlie strike. It has offered to arbitrate wages. It has renewed that offer and enlarged it. But the union leaders still refuse! TELEPHONE COMPANY SPECIAL COMBINATIONS!
