BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS VOL. XLVI-^NO. 21 BlythevUle Courier Bly'thevillc Daily Hew* Mississippi Valtey Leader Blytheville Herald Chrysler, Union Seem Near End Of Pension Fight Optimism Prevails Despite Rejection Of 'Final' Offer DETROIT, April 17. (AP) —The door seemed open today for an early settlement • of the costly, 83-day Chrysler strike. • Optimism prevailed although the CIO United Auto Workers rejected yesterday what Chrysler Corp. termed its "final" offer in the stubborn pension dispute. As negotiations resumed today, observers pointed out that none of the six objections the UAW listed »'ere vital Issues. They also said It seemed probable Chrysler would be killing to rework parts of its proposal to get a settlement. • Two Sides Are Closer One thing appeared certain—that In principle the two sides are closer than at any time since 83.000 Chrysler workers walked off their lobs Jan. 25. UAW President Walter P. Rcu- fher underlined that point when he said after yesterday's offer: "IWe are glad that at tliis date Pjfcler has finally agreed to pro- vi^T pensions for their workers guaranteed by a sound .pension trust fund." The means of financing $100-a- month pensions for workers who are 65 years of age and have 25 years' service has been the nub of the dispute. These were the rensons the auto union listed for finding the offer Inadequate: Employe* Would Lose Claim ; 1—Employes would lose nil claim to pension benefits If they wor<_ laid off for more than two years. 2—Workers would have to retire it 88 and could not build future pension benefits after they^are 65 3—Benefits lor workers retiring before they are 65 and with less than 25 years' service »re inadequate. *—No credit is given for vncalioi P«y, leave of absence, sickness, union business and injuries covered by workmen's compensation. 5—Chrysler proposes to pay only half ot-tfctJrjijjfti iand'surgical^ene- 'IjAL|nstend -'of the entire' sum "Ihc ni^P demanded. 6-^Chrysler would pay only a little of sickness and disability beiie tits. • Once the pension Issue and othe Med-in economic points 'ire settled • trike mediators believe several davs •dditibnal negotiations may be needed to clear up non-econonil matters such as grievance proccd «re. neniority and union security . Besides the 89,000 Chrysler strik «rs, the. walkoijt 'has idled som Sfl.OOO employes of supplied plant, throughout the country.
