The letter was adopted at a conference on 'democracy and. autonomy' In Ihe CIO here. • A call to the conference was published in last Sunday's Ohio edition of the Dally Worker, Communist Party newspaper. Among the unionists who signed the call were Cleveland members of Ihe fur workers; longshoremen; united electrical workers; united office and piofcs- sioual workers; mine, mill and smelter worker*; united automobile workers and united stcelworkcrs. The auto workers and sleclworkeis representatives were from the left wing minorities In those big unions which arc loyal to Murray.
