Answer: They arc still on strike because union leaders won't accept the company's offer to arbitrate wages — the union's main demand. Question: Why do union leaders refuse to arbitrate? Answer: Because they want the company to make a wage offer beforehand. Question: Is the company willing lo do lliis? Answer; No. Question: Wliy not? Answer: Because the company believes its prevailing wages are good and well in line with community wage levels. Question: Has the company offered to allow someone , else to pass on the wage question?. ' Answer: Yes. That is one of the main purposes of arbitration. Question: In ease a hoard of arbitration, found an i increase should be granted, what happens?. 1 Answer: The arbitrators decide the amount of the j, Micrease. Question: Supposing tlie company readied full agreement with the union, would that end the strike? Answer; No, not at once. Question: Wliy not? Answer: The union-stales it has delegated to another group—the policy committee of the National Federation of Telephone Workers—its right to approve wage and other demands for its thousands of members. , SOUTHWESTERN BELL Question: Whul is llic Policy Committee of the National Federation? Answer: That is a group of 49 representatives of telephone unions from all over the country now assembled in Washington, D. C. Question: Would the National Policy Committee approve an agreement between this company and Ihe union representing its employees? Answer: They say they would not give approval unless agreements satisfactory to the union leaders had been reached with all other telephone companies. Question: Do yon mean that union officers from Florida and Oregon, from Pennsylvania and Arizona have to approve before the strike can end here? , ,. Answer: That seems to be the position of the union's •'••"• National Policy Committee. Question: What kind of a hargaiu is the National Pol— icy Committee trying to drive? 'Answer:' Apparently it hopes to gain nation-wide power over an essential publicscrvicc, with no responsibility to the public for its acts. Question: Are Southwestern Company employees remaining on strike principally in support of this drive for nation-wide stains? Answer: It would seem so since the strike continues despite the company's offer to arbitrate the main issue—the employees' wages. Question: How can the telephone strike he settled? Answer: It can be settled quickly and fairly if union leaders will accept the company's offer of arbitration. Other issues could then be negotiated. TELEPHONE COMPANY
