THE SUN, BALiiMuKE, WLDiNEaDAY MuiLNrnG, JULy 14, 1171 Firemen, Gutman Will Meet In 'Last Attempt? ForAPact r OOKDON W. CHAPLIN Representatives of two city fl-. tempted, at the request of the firefighters, to arrange refighters' unions will meet today with Edward J. Gutman, the city labor commissioner, in what i union leader called a lasi Biiemui i nauiuiH a wage agreement. , "If we don't reach an gree-ment this time, we would be crazy to sit down with him again," Charney L. Harris, the president of Local 734, International Firefighters Association (AFLrCIO), said yesterday. "Job Action" Takes , The city's 2,500 firemen and officers Friday initiated a "job action" eliminating all but emergency calls and maintenanceto press their demands for a $600-a-year pay Increase. Mr. Gutman, in his last meet ing with the executive boards of the two negotiating unions, countered with a proposal for a one-year contract containing a $325 pay raise. This offer was accepted by union negotiators but later rejected by the executive boards- r Mayor Meetinf Asked Neither aide appeared ready to compromise yesterday. Mr Harris said that both unions would continue to demand a $600 pay raise while Mr. Gutman continued to insist that the city could afford no more than a $325 raise. Today's meeting as sched uled after Leon Sachs, the presi dent of the Baltimore Jewish Council, who was selected by both sides to be a mediator, at- State Allocated $62,900 More For Lunch Aid Washington (Special) Maryland will receive an additional $62,938 from the U.S. Depart ment of Agriculture to help operate its summer free lunch programs, a department official announced yesterday. However, a spokesman for Mayor D'Alesandro said that it was "unlikely" that the Balti more summer lunch program will be able to take advantage of this extra money. John W. Eddinger, the Mayor's press aide, said the Balti more program, . which began July 5, was performing "about at the maximum efficiency and at about the maximum amount of money that we can handle under the federal guidelines," , . To Feed 30,000 The eight-week program is de signed to feed 30,000 poor chil dren during the summer. The program has a total budget of $852,000-4695.000 coming from the Agriculture Department. Mr. Eddinger said that unless federal guidelines are relaxed, it would be impossible to expand the present program. These guidelines state that children in the program must be part of an "on-going activity" at a recreation center and must eat their meals at the centers a meet ing for them with the Mayor. . The Mayor refused, saying that Mr. Gutman was his repre sentative in such matters. Union representatives then agreed to meet with Mr. Gutman ''for the last time." If an agreement cannot be reached, Mr. Harris said, "phase two" of the job action will be instituted, which could emergency tasks and an in crease in tne number or men calling in sick. Mr. Harris, However, told the Fir Board that before this phase was initiated he would notify them one ween in advance and would meet again with them after the expiration of that time to discuss the move. Even if further meetings between firefighters and city officials cannot be arranged, the matter could be settled through an "impasse panel" made up of representatives appointed by each side and a mediator. Both sides allegedly have agreed to appoint Mr. Sachs as the media tor. . - ' -'; According to Mr. Gutman, there are also "legal sanctions" that can be brought to bear on the firemen. Since their work slowdown is illegal under the city labor ordinances. . "He's gone too far," Mr. Gut man said of Mr. Harris, "when, in the middle of an illegal slow down, he threatens that there will be no more meetings." ; Delegate Backs Schaefer Ticket Delegate Gerald J. Curran (D., 3d Baltimore) announced yesterday that he will support the primary election ticket headed by William Donald Schaefer, the City Council presi dent and candiate for mayor. Mr. Currani who is a candidate for the council presidency being vacated by Mr. Schaefer, described the current president as the most qualified of the mayoral contenders. ; ? "There is hardly an area in which Mr. Schaefer has not worked as city council president in attempting to resolve or im prove the' many problems which beset Baltimore city," he said Mr. Curran has been trying hard to gain the still-unfilled spot of council president candi date on the Schaefer-Pressman ticket. However, political observers in the city now expect the Schaefer-Pressman ticket to run without a candidate for the council presidency.; . rQ ., -. Mr. Curran is a nephew of Councilman J. Joseph Curran, Sr. (D., 3d), one of the leaders of the dominant Curran-Ricciuti Democratic faction in northeast Baltimore.' Although Delegate Curran filed for office without the backing of the councilman) and the Third district organization, he reportedly stands a good chance of getting their endorsement..: ; SCHOOL UNIT TO CTU JOBS High School Posts Placed On City Board's Agenda Reassignment of several Baltimore secondary school administrators, including those at two troubled junior high schools, will be a major item of business at a regular city School Board meet ing tomorrow. !
