Receipts from business enterprises run by unions yielded »n,500,000 more. A merger would cul rtown overhead. Hoth organizations now maintain headquarters buildings In Washington. They have two sets of offices In most of the state capitals and major Industrial cities. Both organizations now maintain educational departments, political action groups, publications and lob- bies. They may all work towards the same end, but they duplicate each other's efforts. What a really united labor movement would do to American politics and to collective bargaining techniques arc subjects that can only be speculated on. A dis-unlted labor movement has given employers » theoretical bargaining advantage, at least. There Is no immediate prospect for a really strong American Labor Party, like Britain's Labour Parly. Dut It could emerge In due time, through adversity. Opposition to the Tad-Hartley Act has" probably done much to bring labor unity as far along as It has progressed this year. A bed licking for union-endorsed candidates In the 1950 and 1952 tlec. lions would make the labor unity movement even stronger. lean Federation of Industrial Organizations? Or something with fresh slant picked out of a hat? By far the knotiest problem that the merger negotiators face is Ihe matter of jurisdfctional disputes. They are baii enough between local unions within the two big organizations, though probably less troublesome now than in some years past. But when the AFL-CIO merger is up for consideration, the natural conflict between the former's craft union organization and the latter's Industrial union organization must be resolved. Up to now. AFL leaders have maintained the only way there would be for the unions to be ab- old line vertical could be unity CIO horizontal sorbed by the unions. If this can be worked out some other way. the advantages of merger are real, one big union move- For Immediate Delivery! 3 Brand New Allis-Chalmers COMBINES If Interested, Please Write Box TIT, C/o Courier News HARVEST Soybeans EARLY WARNING ORDER In the Chancery Court, Chlcka- ,wb» District, Mlssisxippl County, Arkaniai.
