THURSDAY, JAN. 8, 1953 House Labor Chairman Favors Several Methods In Dealing with Strikes By NORMAN WALKKK WASHINGTON Wl — Rep. McConnell (R-Pa) said today he favors legislating a variety of alternative methods for dealing with national emergency strikes to make It easier to deal with them. The new chairman of the House Labor Committee said in an Interview that If unions and management arc kept, guessing over which technique might be employed by the government, that in itself would spur the parties to greater «f(ort toward a settlement. "If they don't know what might happen to them, thercs more of * tendency for them to settle their own troubles, McComwH said. . "I think the Idea is fundamentally sound. No one yet has come up with a sure answer to handling these big strikes. And I think we should encourage the participants of these labor-management disputes to try to work out their ov;n problems wherever possible. "Leaving the situation flexible to meet the varying conditions of each case would provide more leeway for the interplay of human relations and might thus bring on more settlements and fewer Btrikes. A Lot of Ideas MuConnell, eight years a House member, said he has a lot of ideas for" rewriting the nations basip labor laws. But he said he hesitate* to express' them 'until his committee is fully organized and gets down to work. Hearings on suggested changes to the Taft-Hartley law are tentatively set in both the Senate and House In.early February. Sen Taft (R-Oliio) has said they will be "wide open. McConnell said the House hearings may last several months, in a'thorough ailing of the whole problem. The House committee chairman said he favors retaining the c (jrt injunction method, perhaps modified somewhat from the present provision in (he Taft-Hartley Act, as one of'the "tools" available to the President to handle the big, extraordinary strikes. ' But an Injunction may be unnecessary In many cases, he snid. The law might also let (he President name a board of Inquiry to recommend a settlement. Or the Chief Executive might ask Congress Immediately for legislation to deal specifically with a threatened strike. McConnell indicated he was opposed to authorizing government seizure of strike-bound facilities. If Congress enacts such a law, he said, it should be separate from the basic labor law.
