PAGE EIGHTEEN ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Laborers Reject Latest Proposal Of Contractors Strike Enters 44th Day;' CEC Calls Special Meeting Toniglif WOOD RIVER - With morv than 300 members voting, tho Laborers Local here Wednesday morning rejerted (he lalpst offfor of the Construction Employer's Council, a 10-cent an hour raise, retroactive to Feb. 21. The strike between the laborers and member. 1 ! of the CEC thus entered Its 44th day today with both sides apparently stalemated for the time beins. Robert Dunlap. chairman of Ihe CEC Bargaining Committee, who said union officials had In- lornied him of the rejection of (ho waije offer early this morning, indicated a special meeting ' of the full CEC membership will be held tonipht in Alton, expressly to discuss the strike. He declined comment on what the result of the meeting might be. Referring to a proposal by the union for a 12'4 cents per hour raise retroactive to Feb. 21, with starting Jan. 1, 1955, Dunlap said member contractor's of the CEC "Do not believe such future advances in wages are proper." He said the Alton Lnliorers Local, with which a new contract had been negotiated a short time ago without a strike, now has a contract that calls for 5 cents more on the hour and approximately 5 cents per hour which goes toward a health and welfare fund. The total outlay would have been 10 cents per hour in both cases, to Alton and Wood River locals, Dunlap said, had not Wood River" turned down the contractor's 10-cents per hour offer. Dunlap said it was his contention "Nobody ever wins a strike."
