Michael V. Blans/leld, D., Wn- terbury, proposed , today that the 10^3 general assembly enact legislation compelling unions to accept responsibility f o r unauthorised strikes ami contract violations. Furthermore, said Blansflcld, unions., should be forced to make semiannual audits' of their books, annual reports to the secretary of state on their membership, duos, salaries of officials, and that these be made a matter of public record "so that the public would know about the financial affairs of the union." Blansfleld also advocated legislation restricting the amount of payments by a union to its national organization outside the state, and that' "a ceiling should he established on such payments." As to the strike clause, the Senator saifl thai unions "by all means be made responsible as the employer is now responsible for his acts," In another proposal for the legislature, BJansllelri asked that the general assembly authorized tho governor to declare a moratorium on all mortgages after I,ho Nvn.r as a relief to those home owners who flricl themselves unable to keep up their payments.
