Snell, 56, '. lives at 412 Melius St Pabco Strike Held Craft Unions Row .The nearly four-week-old jurisdictional dispute which has shut down the Emeryville Pabco plant is a local eruption of a nationwide disagreement between AFL-CIO industrial and craft unions. ' This was the contention today of JT'Jj. Childers, business representative of the Alameda County Building and Construction Trades Council, in a letter to all. AFL-CIO union locals in Alameda County and to all building trades councils in California The bitte Pabco dispute is between the -Eastbay Machinists Local 1304and a number of building trades unions employed by the Fluor Maintenance Corp., which, has been retained by; Pabco tor con struction and repair work. The plant has been picketed since Aug. 3 by Local 1304v an affiliate of the United S1 Workers. The local set up, picket lines after 53 of its members were laid off. They charged Pabco had locked the workers out, OPENINGS AVAILABLE Childers insisted however, that there are some openings for the ousted workers in various craft unions being employed by the Fluor Corp. in fulfilling its maintenance contract. He said that nobody has as yet approached the Building Trades Council unions on that basis. The local dispute, Childers maintains, is the direct result of several national policies adopted by either the industrial or craft unions: 1 The building trades coun cils' policy of insisting that industrial plants have the right to contract out maintenance and construction work. 2 The building trades un- Segregationist Leader Seized In Negro Club LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Aug. 29 -0JPD One. of the leaders of a segregationist march on Central High School Aug. 12, Robert J. Norwood, was- arrested early today by . police in a Negro night club. . j Norwood was charged with drunkenness and freed on $15.50 bond. The bond . was posted by Traffic Judge Robert w. Laster, a militant segregationist, recalled from the Little Rock school board May 25. Norwood was arraigned and charged with loitering when police broke up the march against Central. The case was passed in municipal court until Sept 17. Police SLL Carl E. Jackson said he received a telephone call about 2 a.m. from a Negro policeman who said a drunk white man was in the Twin City Club, a Negro club in downtown Little Rock. Jackson and another police man went to the club and found Norwood at the bar drinking beer with a group of Negroes. Cigarets and -change were on the bar in front of him, the police said. . ' . Norwood's car, with the keys in the ignition, was found near by. . . Paper Protects Apple : MERENO. Italy A specialty of the apple orchards in the South Tyrol area is the Cla-ville, a yellow-skinned apple that is covered ' with paper while still on the tree. The pa per protects the apple's golden color. - ' - - ions policy of protecting the job opportunities of members by respecting contracts with construction contractors where they are able to obtain con tacts with industrial plants to do the maintenance or con struction work. 3 The United Steel Work ers' policy of doing new con struction work where they can. v . 4 The United Steel Work ers' abrogation of the so-called "Miami Agreement" of 1958, which ceded new construction work to building trades unions. According ' to Childers, the Miami Agreement was reached after some 50 meetings. TERMS NOT FOLLOWED :( In this pact, Childers said, the building trades unions agreed to give up their claim to running maintenance work and the industrial unions agreed that new building con struction work was tha work I of the building trades unions A month later, Childers charged, the Steelworkers dis agreed with the interpretation of the agreement. They have since refused to abide by its terms, he said. "In Alaoaie da" County," Childers' letter stated, "we have been consistently pushed backwards in ou jurisdictional fight with the steelworkers. "The steelworkers liave used every means to their end, crossed our picket 1 f e s , threatened management wth pickets under their . 'no con tracting out' clauses in their contracts, taken advantage of the Taft-Hartley Law, and now massed pickets and violently assaulted our tnembers.-"At Pabco," he continues, "we used to have many more crafts people employed. Pres sure from Local 1304 ... on the Pabco management has re duced the number of our members there." SIMILAR INCIDENTS He said that similar forcing out of craft workers had occurred at several other Alameda County plants in recent years. Childers emphasized that under the new contract between the Fluor Corp. and Pabco no craft workers will be furnished for .'production. "All of us detest the, idea of going through any picket line," Childers said, "but we cannot let the steelworkers use a picket line to prevent our members from working for one" of our contractors do ing work which is rightfully and legally theirs". .
