MONDAY, DECEMBER 22, 1947 Western Union Strike Delayed Employes Agree to Delay Walkout Until Data is Assembled WASHINGTON, Dec. 22. (UP) — A threatened prc-Chrlstmas strike ol 50.000 Western Union employes was averted today but the postponement raised the possibility of telephone and telegraph strikes in close order next Spring. Ai the request of the government, three APL unions called off Die nationwide telegraph strike they had threatened to start "at any time." The unions and the company agreed to begin new wage negotiations 50 days from now, after a three-member fact-finding panel investigates the dispute and reports without specific recoinmen- dation If the negotiations again bog down, the telegraph wage dispute may be moving toward a new boll- ing point Just ab-nit the lime some 250,000 telephone workers will ix> demanding new contracts. The tclepnone workers union — the Communications Workers <)f America Und.)—served noiice today that it would Keek new wage increases when its contracts expire next spring. Union President Joseph Beirne said there seemed no alternative | but make new wage demands. HCJ ) said Congress has indicated It has "litile intention of doing much" nexi year to halt or reduce rising prices. Tu Name Facl-r'iinlinj; Hoard The threat of an Immediate telegraph strike was removed last night when company and unioii officials accepted a government proposal and agreed to let a public fact-finding panel investigate the "wage-profit" relationship in the telegraph industry. The three AFL unions—the Commercial Telegraphers, the Telegraph Workers and the Telegraph Em- ployes—had accepted a similar gov- proposal last month but it was rejected at that time by Western Union. Cyrus S. Ching, director of the federal mediation and conciliation service, said the fact-finding panel would have no power to "determine or make any finding as to what, if any, wage increase shall be grant- ed." The unions had asked a 15- cents-an-hour pay increase. Ching said he would announce the names o! the panel members "shortly." He said -they would be given 50 days to investigate the dis- • pute and make a public report. Af. ter that, the unions and the company have agreed to resume direct negotiations on the wage demand. A walkout by the three APL unions would have tied up Western Union service everywhere in the nation except metropolitan New York, where Western Union employes are organized by the CIO.
