A New Look in Work Relations By SAM DAWSON .'AP Business News Analyst JJEW YORK (AP)— Compulsory arbitration of Ihc rail labor dispute mlcls still anulhrr chnlloti'Jtt! In'a year of cliansji 1 in labor-management issues and solutions. Sabbaticals for Ions-time em- tiuio employes, bonuses as coin-; pfflisation for automation, continu-! oi>s negotiations to minimize ' strike threats, stress on fringe benefits rather than pay boosts. ; dietrges r>> racial bias by some unions and lack of equal job opportunities and an increased emphasis en the public interest in labor disputes—all scum to be clulselinK out a new look in labor- management relations. Congress has ordered compulsory arbitration for th c first time iiua. peace year. It has put offal,'least fo r six months — thc threat of ;. strike that would idle j the nation's railroads. The "hic-f issue was over what management calls feather bed-' ding — union-protected jobs that | I he companies say are no longer needed. This issue is debated in a number of other industries. The issue is a variant of the chief concern in this year's labor talks. Ti'c unions primjirily are worried over job security — the loss of ; obs to machines of new work ledmiciues. or to the chanp- ing consumer demand to different products or services. Management is equally concerned over cutting costs or getting into new i lines thai consumers now fancy. ! The steel industry furnished; clues to the new trend in three ways Ihis year. First. Kaiser Steel is paying bonuses to \vorkc~s, [ li.ur sh;ne of savings made! thnnifh automation. Second, thc j industry adopted a lorfg-vacation ] plan that gives workers with sen-1 ionlv extended time-off every few years. And third, the industry licked the strike threat pressure on contract i egotiations — this year at least—'by setting up a con- iiiKiousl,, nc'-oliating committee to lacklp labor problems as thex arise atv: hanuner out a contract ahead nf a lixrc 1 deadline. The i-1'.'Ctricai industry also has Ind study cnirmittees a 1 xvoik xveil ahead of contract tormina- (Ions. Noxv the talks arc coming out into the open. Longer vacations and more retirement pay are a ninny the proposals. Overtime and moonlighting also are coming to the front as issues because of this year's special conditions, chiefly the hard core of unemployment and the fear of many with jobs that they may lose them. Many industries prefer to pay overtime xvhen orders call for more output rather than hire now workers and become involved in all the fringe benefits that are an increasing part of thc job scene. And many employes, especially those subject to periodic work week shortening look for other jobs after work, or moonlighting.
