A meeting had -been requested for- Wednesday in the Chicago regional headquarters of .the FMCS by its national director, W. J. Usery JrV •,', '• In a letter to Usery explaining 'the company's position in the 14-month-old labor dispute, Kable vice president of industrial relations Robert, ,A. ,Urish., said, "Although the company advised the photoengravers of the close down of the Teleprocessing operation almost a year ago, it is obvious that the union has never really accepted this fact. We believe, therefore, it' would merely arouse faiso hopes and misunderstandings if we were to meet with your representatives to discuss arty matters ' pertaining to the-photocngrav.ens."!' '' "Although Kable was forced by. the union's unlawful secondary, boyeptt activities to produce some rotogravure •) • • 9 - •. ••. ^ at the plant after the decision was'made to close down jthe operation, the company had completely stopped producing any such cylinders by the '.and *f January of .this year. We are ( now purchasing adequate supplies of rotogravure cylinders from outside suppliers, all of whom incidentally, employ members of GAFU in their shop. We are completely out of the cylinder-making business. In fact, because of .the disposal of our equipment, "the company no longer has cylinder making capabilities within the plant to supply its needs, even if we desired to do so." In referring to the other striking union', the bookbinders, Urish said that negotiations with the bookbinders are continuing, the latest meeting being held on July 2. . i "In these sessions," he said, "there has been a free exchange of ideas by both sides, and we sec no reason to involve your office in these negotia- • tlons."
