THE LEADERS of three railroad unions, representing- less than one-tenth of all railroad employees, have called a railroad strike that would paralyze the nation. These leaders refuse to accept a 15% cents an hour wage increase retroactive to November 1, 1947. This increase was recommended by an impartial Emergency Board appointed by President Truman. This increase of 15% cents already has been' accepted by the 19 other railroad unions. But the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen, and the Switchmen's Union of North America won't accept what more than 90% of all railroad employes have accepted. They have called a strike to get more! Unions refuse rules discussion Certain rules changes demanded by these onion leaders—which would increase wages still further—were recommended by the Board. But the union leaders want more— they demand that the railroads put into effect ALL the changes they asked for, Including (hose the Board felt should be denied. On top of this, they Insist that certain rules changes proposed by the railroads be withdrawn—in spite of the fact that the Board wtaa—widiid them! These union leaders have rehuad to negotiate except upon these arbitrary terms. Greater wage increase not justified Kngineers and firemen are among the highest paid of all employes in America, as figures in we box show. This strike threat doesn't justify giving a greater increase than other railroad workers received. Iroetgency Boards are a means provided by the Sail way Labor Act In the public totac- ost to aroidiWkes, The President's BoardJ after hearing evidence for 33 days, made recommendations based on all the facts in the case. The railroads have accepted these recommendations. Who's to blame? Although they deplored so large an extra cost burden, the railroads accepted the report of the Board because they felt it was in the public interest to uphold the spirit and intent of the Railway Labor Act. In contrast, this small group of railroad union leaders are attempting to flout the intent and spirit of the Railway Labor Act, and dictate their own terms. They have dictated a paralyzing railroad strike. You will be the victim! How long will the American public stand for the undemocratic, arbitrary, and abusive use of the right to strike and the disregard of the obligation to provide transportation? How long can the American people permit a few dictatorial union leaders to defy the processes provided for peaceful settlement of disputes? _ Force seldom produces settlements that are either fair or lasting. Moreover, a point is often reached when personal interests must be held subordinate to the greater public welfare. That is why the railroads have accepted the Emergency Board recommendations. That is also why the leaders of these three unions should reconsider their decision to call a paralyzing strike. Here is a -comparison of average annual earnings of engineers and fireman for 1939 (pre-war) and 1947. Also shown is what 1947 earnings would have been if the 15V& cents per hour increase, offered by the railroads and rejected by the union leaders, had been in effect throughout the entire year 1947.
