TV Union Negotiators Take 'Walk' WASHINGTON (AP) - Union negotiators in the strike against the three major radio-television networks walked out of talks yesterday, charging management negotiators had made an "insulting" offer. Donald Conaway, spokesman for the striking American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, said "there are no negotiators" as he led his bargaining team out of talks with network representatives and federal mediators at the U.S. Labor Department. William E. Simkin, chief federal mediator, said, "I would not call it a union walkout." GEORGE FUCHS, NBC executive and chief management spokesman, said the networks were willing to continue discussions. The four-day-old strike is over wage demands of broadcast newsmen, employees of NBC, ABC and CBS. The union had demanded $325 per week plus a higher percentage of the bonus commercial fees. The networks had offered $300 and a smaller percentage of commercial fees than is asked by AFTRA. CONAWAY SAID network negotiators had made a new offer which was "regressive and more insulting than the first offer." Asked whether he was walking out of the negotiations, Conaway said, "You bet your life." He said union negotiators were returning to New York. "We will strike to the utmost of our capabilities," Conaway said. "I regret greatly the inconvenience to the American public" in interfering with some radio and television programs, Conaway said. CONAWAY SAJD he did notj know when it might be possible! to resume negotiations. Conaway declined to disclose details of the new offer. Simkin said, "This is not in my judgment, a breakoff of negotiations., There will be a settlement somewhere, sometime." Simkin declined to say what precipitated Conaway's action in leaving the talks, which began here Saturday at Simkin's request. ' Negotiators, cooped up in the Labor Department while 86-degree temperatures and a bright spring sun prevailed outside, inaugurated what might be a new technique in collective bargaining. Bargaining teams for both sides — first the union and then i management — were released long enough by federal mediators to go for brief strolls in the bright sunlight. Part of Hijack Loot Found QUINCY, Mass. (AP)-Police yesterday recovered a small part of the more than $348,000 loot taken Saturday night when hijackers slipped into the cab of an armored truck while its guards were outside and sped off in a hail of bullets. Police found four sealed bank bags from the truck at dawn yesterday, but when the bags were opened, a spokesman for the firm which owns the truck said, they "contained mostly checks." The spokesman, David Connell of Fall River, son of the president of the Skelly Detective Agency, said, "There is some cash — a small amount." He said the truck and its two- man crew had made 45 stops on a route which had taken them as far as Derry, N.H., before it was hijacked in front of a Quincy department store. Quincy is a large suburb southeast of Boston. "MOST OF THESE stops were at supermarkets and department stores," Connell said. "We know at least $348,000 was taken, and I think the total will be higher. We won't know until tomorrow when we get the duplicate slips from the stores." Police found the four money bags in a wooded area of Quin- least four men took part in the hijacking. They said two apparently hijacked the truck and were met later by the other men in the getaway cars. Police said one of the abandoned cars contained two submachine guns, several other weapons and a nylon mask. Connell said it is a policy of his company to have a two-man truck crew take turns as driver said.
