(EST) Wednesday. It appeared that - o n l y a government seizure or a presidential order for a Taft-Jiarlley law injunction couM stave off a strike in mills that produce 95 per cent of the country's steel. The industry said it would re- i sist a seizure. The union said it would fight any move for an injunction. The Tafl-HarUcy law provides an 80-day, no-strike injunction under national emergency provisions. Wage negotiations between the industry and the union collapsed yesterday. An industry spokesman, John A. Stephens of U. S. Steel, said companies would begin "cooling their furnaces" today. And CIO-USW President Phillip Murray said a strike notice has been drafted, ready to be put in the mails to the companies and union locals. He said he thought a strike would "definitely take place." Under an agreement w i t h 1 Wage Stabilization Board Chairman Nathan P. Feinsingcr, the union is committed to give a 86- : hour notice to the industry before ; a strike. This period gives mills j time to cool furnaces and guard against permanent damage to : equipment. | ; The wage talks fell through ,mfter the union turned down a 'Â·company-offer to boost wa|tcs ; nine cents an hour and provide fringe benefits. Industry negotiators estimated the offer at 16 cents' an hour. Murray figured it at 14V cents. The union chief said he refused the offer because It was less than increases proposed by the WSB, v/hich recommended a j 17^-ccnt-an-hour increase and other benefits.
