Mayor Appeals For Strike Settlement Mayor Bill Finn and a committee of concerned Algona citizens, comprised of a cross-section of local residents, have met with union representatives and Weldenhoff Corp. officials at separate times recently in an effort to help find a settlement of the strike, which has kept the local plant closed for almost seven weeks, or at least aground for further discussion. The committee also has talked with other persons in the business area here, and came up with the following letter which was in turn mailed to all employees at Weidenhoff (union and non-union alike), March 3. To All Union Employees of Weidenhoff Corporation; This letter was prepared for my signature by a commute of Concerned citizens appointed by me to review the present status of the strike. The Committee was appointed because I feel very strongly that the future of Algona and the surrounding area is threatened by the continuing strike and every effort should be made to bring the strike to an end at the earliest possible opportunity. Neither I nor the Committee claim any authority to speak for either party to the strike and I assure you that we are just as concerned that you receive fair compensation as we are that the Weidenhoff Corporation resume production. in an attempt to be helpful, the Committee met with representatives of Weidenhoff management on Monday evening, February 28. .The entire matter was discussed with complete frankness and at considerable length. As a result of positive statements made by Weidenhoff representatives at that meeting, the entire membership of the Committee, without exception, is convinced that the company will make no better offer than it already has, regardless of how long the strike may continue. Since the package offered by the company was approved by your Negotiating Committee and your Business Representative as a reasonable settlement of this matter, and since a prolonged strike can only result in additional hardships on yourselves, your families, your union and your communities, without any prospect for further benefits, I sincerely appeal to you, on behalf of all of the persons and communities affected by the strike, to consider whether there is any justification for the striko to continue. I have always believed that people from our area were more honest, more fair, more responsible and more concerned with the welfare of their friends, neighbors and community than people in other parts of the country. Here is a chance for you to prove that this is true of union members as well as everyone else. I appeal to you to end the strike so that all of us can get back •to the job of building a better community in which to live. Respectfully yours, Win. J, Finn •••••• Mayor of Algona (Since I have made no effort to determine who are union members, I am mailing this to all Weidenhoff employees.) It was announced earlier that a meeting of union representatives and Weidenhoff management will be held here today (Tuesday) and Wednesday, called by Federal mediators, in an attempt to settle the strike. Only employees in the plant since the strike began Jan. 26, have been those in management, supervisory and maintenance jobs. The strike began after union workers voted, 92-19, to leave I heir jobs. Several votes have been held since, with union workers voting to remain out of the plant, but by lesser margins. There have been no union-management meetings for several weeks. Algona (la.)
