PAGE SIX ' BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, APRIL 26, 1950 Unions to End Long Drives for Control Of U.S. Electricians | PITTSBURGH, April 26. (AP) — Two unions battling biterly for control of the nation's electrical workers wind up hectic campaigns iodiy to woo WestlnghouSe Electric Corporation's 55,000 employees •\ Tomorrow, the National Libor Relations Board will poll the Westinghouse workers at 40 plants In K cities. I That vote marks the first big test of strength In the six month jeud between the United Electrical Workers (UE) (independent) • nd the CIO International Union i>l Electrical Workers (IUE). > The results may well . decide which union the other quarter-million workers in the industry will Eide with..• : For more than a decade the UE was the top union in the industry which turns out America's radios, washing machines and other elec- ' idea! units. Like the stcelworkers und many another union, tile UE was affiliated with the CIO. Arm Chopped Off Then last year the CIO chopped off Its electrical arm. The CIO accused the UE of left-wln^lsm. After casting the UE adrift the CIO formed a new electrical workers' union—the IUE. '• The IUE went out to enlist the UE's members. That's when the fight started. As the campaigns roll on to the climax/bitter charges and countercharges fill the air. Both sides are bringing their biggest guns up into action. :, Today, Philip Murray, president of the CIO, makes a last ditch appeal for the IUE in a mass mcetv ing In suburban Turtle Creek's high school stadium. '.- Hard by the speech site is inghouse's sprawling East Pittsburgh works, home of the UE's giant : 13,000-membcr Local 601 There the tension Is so thick you can cut It with a knife. Attendance Boost Charged • The UE charges the IUE is try- Ing to boost attendance at the Murray meeting by offering $3 to $8 to anybody who'll come. v The IUE counters with the charge that the UE is going to have rnen at the plant gates to hamper "workers who try to leave for th rally. Police will be oh hand to keep an «ye out for any -possible disturb ances. < .Yesterday- Michael Quill, Ililer 'national president of the CIO .^Transport Workers, and WlUian Hart, District 19 director of the OIO United Steelworkers, spoke at Ix TUB rallies held at the plant gates. • Charles Copcland, IUE local bus- ness agent, claimed Charles New- oil, International representative for he UE, has been ordered to "shove he UE down the workers' throaLs vhcther they like it or not." The UE triumphantly displayed he resignation of Michael Clunc. CIO national representative. Clune quit the CIO last Sunday saying: Distasteful Task For the past six months, we national representatives have had the distasteful task of splitUne inions, asking employers to cancel heir contracts with other unions, collaborating to break strikes, and even engage in scab herding, as in ,he case of the leather workers' rike in New York state." In Buffalo, Hugh Thompson, CIO regional director for western New York, said Clunc had been under CIO pressure to resign and "wields no influence whatsoever." Beside the UE and the IUE. some smaller unions will be on ballots In certain plants. These include the Federation of Wnstinghouse Independent Salaried Union Umaffilfal- ed). the APL Electrical Workers, the Meter Engineers Division (un- affiliaterf) and the API. Pattern Makers. Final Test ' After the Westinghouse vole, the next and final test will be an election among the 100,050 production employes of the General Electric company. That balloting will also be conducted by the NLHB. The UE has already lost one round in the fight but its leaders claim that was no Indication of future results. In a recent NLRB vote of General Motors Electric Division workerfij the IUE won 21,167 to 2,528, Results of tomorrow's election will be tabulated at the NLRB's regional office In Pittsburgh. Counting won't start before nine o'clock (E.S.T.) tonight regardless of what hour any poll closes. This Is to prevent the results of eastern area voting from being flashed to West Coast polls before they close. Such news might influence West Coast voting or even result In violence.
