J WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11, 1039. THE DAILY COURTER. CONNETXSVILLK PA. PAGE FIVE. l i n e r s Seek Wage Increase, Shorter Hours ON THE AIR Radio Information At a Glance Special to The Courier. PITTSBURGH, Jan. 11. -- The Unitel Mine Workers of America will ask a flat 20 per cent wage increase, shorter hours and a guaranteed annual wage with vacations tor the Nation's 500,000 bituminous oal diggers at the expiration of contracts April 1, it was authoritatively learned here. The Demands are -virtually the same as were made two years ago when a nation-wide walkout was averted fay the granting of the SG-a- day base rate and the seven-hour day, 35-hour \vcck. The biennial wage conferences between the U. M. W. A. and the operators represented in the Appalachian Association is scheduled to open in New York March 14. The operators, it is believed, will vigorously oppose any attempt to raise wages and shorten hours. Likewise, their unofficial spokesmen in Western Pennsylvania indicate they will oppose the guaranteed annual wage plan and vacation with pay. Officially, both the mine union officials and the coal operators maintain discreet silence in the face of approaching wage conferences. John L. Lewis, president of the miners union, and his international officers, however, arc under convention mandate to: 1. Bring about changes in district and local agreements. 2. Establish the six-hour day and 30-hour week. 3. Abolish wage differentials be' twecn northern and southern pro- during fields. 4. Increase wages. 5. Reduce the problem of mcch- aniation. Nearly SOO resolutions dealing with wage and contractural negotiations have been sent to the international union for action by the union's national scale committee which meets in advance of the opening of joint wage conferences with the operators in March.
