All this IS conditioned on one thing: that thd.ll-inan Interstate Commerce CoiinnlssldW let stead of stall. Kennedy, lias asked Gbngress to cmpoweV the ICC, for'A JM-year period, to liflnd do\vn decisions tfi tliis railroad ? union argument which already Iws dragged on fV four years He also Wants the ICC Id Have nilthorily to gel a federal court injunction to stop a railroad Strike if the unions don't like its decisions. TliiS should save the country from a .withering shutdown until at'least'3965. Thus the railroad case wouldn't be an issUe'jn the 1964 election; After that/ n re-elected Kennedy or his successor would have until .1965 to''face'..the problem aguin, it there is still one by then. The plan''as Kennedy devised It may cost' him the votes of some railroad/ workers next, year, if they lose then- jobs' through ICC decisions, but organized labor as a whole wouldn't have much reason to be sore at .him. It might have been very sore if, instead of this plan, he had asked Congress to force a settlement by compelling railroads and unions to submit to compulsory arbitration, a, device unions and management i both detest. That would be naked use ol government power. Kennedy in his message to Congress Monday also expressed distaste for settling disputes through cbmpulsory arbitration. But the 'very plan 1 he worked out, and the way he worked if out, is in effect compulsory arbitration although he didn't dress 1 it with that name. He made it sound much milder. Tliis is why: Since the ICC can hand down decisions, and can get a court injunction ;to prevent a strike if the unions resent the decisions, the result is that the' unions will have to accept the ICG's findings. tip fff hfiW union feWtfefs-in the face of approval of job elimination by # presidential cotnffiisslon tlie Supreme 66urt—h'ave r6- fttted $ yfcld. ttl.S Is un&rstand"- able.' file leaders,.elected by their union members,-are paid to fight fdsMiteffl and ifielr own j6bs de- pSnd 6fi {heir member's' supl^rt.
