STREET Lanesboro Dial 3-4181 J. W. GULL OIL and COAL 24-Hour Watchdog Service 243 West Housatonic St. LOW INTEREST HOME IMPROVEMENT LOAN PERSONAL LOAN DEPARTMENT PITTSFIELD NATIONAL BANK "Peace is not advanced rewarding force" We think General Electric employees, their neighbors in the communities and the public at large deserve to know why General Electric has stood firm against an irrespon- sble and senseless strike. The Pre-Strike Offer The offer available to IUB President James B. Carey before he called his strike included everything that was warranted by any reasonable standard. · Eighteen months of intensive research and field work went into the background of this offer. · Ten weeks of negotiations went into the development of this offer. · All pertinent facts, trends, evidence and opinions available from any source were carefully considered in working out the pre-etrike offer-which included significant improvements in the Company's original proposals of August 30, in Response to specific suggestions of the union bargaining committees. Should th« Strike Change the Offer? There has been no significant change in the situation since Mr. Carey called his strike, except the strike itself. · · There has been no significant change in the current economic picture or in the outlook for the future since the pre-strike offer was made. · The Company has uncovered no significant (information not hitherto considered--and none has been offered by the union--to indicate the pre- strike proposal should be changed. · Mr. Carey's IUE accepted similar proposals elsewhere. Everything that has happened since Mr. Carey has called hig strike confirms that the pre-strike offer was right .for employees, for the Company, for communities. More and more employees havt been coming back to work every day--approximately 200,000 employees are now on the job. More and more unions have worked .out agreements on the offer until there are ' more than 65 unions enjoying the new pay; and benefits. More and more' IUE represented employees have expressed their dissatisfaction with the strike, and thousands have came back to work. More and more community spokesmen have been raising, questions about the need for this strike when the Company's pre-strike offer improves even further an already superior General Electric job package. Thus, there has been no reasonable basis for changing the pre-strike offer. The only basis at all for changing it is Mr. Carey's unreasonable strike. Why the Company Has Not Yielded to Mr. Carey's Strike Yielding to Mr. Carey solely on the basis of his strike would not be yielding to reason ; it would be yielding to force. Yielding on this basis would not be yielding to the persuasions of collective bargaining, but to coercive bargaining. It would be yielding to many Instances of rigged strike votes . . . tactics which have been relied upon to enforce this strike on many unwilling employees and communities. It is not being reasonable to yield to tht unreasonable. It is. not constructive to submit to the destructive. Peace is not advanced by rewarding forc«. GENERAL® ELECTRIC PITTSFIELD PULNT1 f
