A spokesman -for the- Brotherhood of. Locomotive Engineers, which also has headquarters here, said, that union had.no plans, ai the moment to follow the lead ol the trainmen. But he added, "We all feel an increase is needed." The spokesman noted that a two per cent wage increase was received in March 1961 in the second year of a contract that wenl into effect July 1, 1980, The I960 increase also was two per cent. W. P. Kennedy, president of the trainmen, said be . presented (he demands will to each railroac Monday. He said that in addition to the demand for an increase in basic pay scales of 25 cents an hour, the trainmen are asking that proportionate increases, be made in differentials, special al lowances, and miscellaneous rates. Current'wage scales were not available. The union wants the railroads to provide life, insurance, for eael employe, pay a year's earning survivors upon his death, an pay all hospital and medical e\ panses. The trainmen did not sa how much this might add (o wage package. Labor Secretary Arthur J. Gok berg has asked representatives o both sides to meet with him Wednesday to try to get the talk going again.
