WEDNESDAY, APRIL 20, 1998 Bl.YTHEVI.U.K (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEK Southern Governors Get Tough, Demand That Strikes End NASHVILLE, Term. (AP) . — Southern governors demanded yesterday that unions and management take action by Saturday '.o end the 38-day-o'ld railroad and telephone strikes now crippling commerce in 14 states. Six governors and representatives of six others met here and adopted resolutions "insisting upon" arbitration of the Louisville i Nashville railroad dispute, a meeting in the southern Bell Telephone Co. dispute and an Immediate end to both strikes. Plan Accepted Both sides in the telephone dispute promptly accepted the governors' plan for a meeting in Atlanta next Saturday with a committee consisting of Govs. Hugh White of Mississippi, Marvin Griffin of Georgia and Jim Folsom of Alabama. Officials of the L&N and the strikin? non-operating unions did not comment on the governors' resolution immediately. The resolution was announced about two hours after L&N negotiator? left Washington mediation talks, which had deadlocked on terms of arbitration. The railway workers struck over a health and welfare plan recommended last summer by a presidential fact-finding board. U&N would not go along with the plan, claiming It had a better one. Now the railroad .wants to limit arbitration to the health and welfare issue. The union says all of its original demands should be arbitrated. The governors urged that the arbitration dispute "also be submitted to the arbitrators for final disposition." The governors urged the strikers to return to work :'with the definite understanding" that the arbitrators' decision would be final and Would be retroactive at least until the date they returned to work. Hour Set They set "as a definite and final limitation, the hour of 11 a.m. EST April 23 for compliance by the parties to the dispute" and said the answers should be sent to Gov. Lawrence Wetherby of Kentucky, chairman of the Southern Governors Conference. Of the telephone dispute, the governors said ,"we believe the differences are easily soluble because the positions taken by both parties are not far apart." Representative,- of the striking CIO Communications Workers of America and Southern Bell were asked to meet with the committee of governors in the Georgia governor's office in Atlanta at, 11 a.m. Saturday "unless a settlement Is reached prior to that date." Wetherby called yesterday's meeting here, inviting representatives of all states affected by the two strikes.
