NOtTHWKT AIKANSAS TIMIS. FovMMvill*. Afkniwat. Tuesday, April 19, 1952 NLRB Examiner Exonerates Gazette Would Dismiss Union ; Complaint Against 1 Little Rock Paper Washington-W'J-T h c Arkansas Gazette has been exonerated of unfilr labor pdactice charges in the CIO American Newspaper Guild strike against the tittle Rock morning newspaper. An NLRB trial examiner lasl night recommended dismissal of the union's complaint against the Gazette. Frederic B. Parkes held that "the strike of the editorial em- ployes was economic in nature, as was the strike of the circulation employes, and that neither strike · was caused or prolonged by any unfair labor practices on part of the respondent Gazette." Twenty-three news room em- ployes of the paper struck December 17, 1949, alter three months of unsuccessful negotiations on a proposed contract. Inability o( the union and company to agree on a dismissal clause, brought about the walkout, which dissolved about 18 months ago. It was the first strike by editorial employes against an Arkansas newspaper. Two days after the editorial strikers walked off their jobs, they were joined by 10 members of the circulation department. Parkes' Cl-page report is subject to approval by the NLHB. Both parties lo the dispute have 20 days in which to seek recon- sideration of the recommendations, and after the Board rules either can appeal to the U. S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Parkes also upheld the newspaper's right to permanently' replace economic, strikers with new employes prior to the strikers' unconditional application for reinstatement. Parkes also dismissed t h e Guild's contention that the Gazette had refused to bargain with it as "statutory representative of the editorial employes." And, he added, there were no violations of the National Labor Relations Act in the management's dealing with the striking circulation employes. The trial examiner's recommendations were based on hearings last July. The union's complaint was issued April 18, 1951. The Gazette recognized the Guild as legal bargaining agent for editorial employes September 2, 1949, following an NLRB election. However, no election was held for circulation department employes. When the Guild offered to settle the strike if all employes were reinstated, the Gazette, refused to take back circulation workers. It was failure to reach an agreement on this issue that blocked settlement of the strike, which still has not officially ended. However, pickets have not patrolled the Gazette building for more than a year and all strikers have obtained other jobs.

Son-in-law, too, is happy to see his wife less harrasscd and with more time to go out with him. Why can't i* work out?? If you do go lo live with your daughter, don't give up all your own activities. Don't become entirely dependent on your daughter and her family for amusement or entertainment. Take an occasional vacation by yourself, or with friends. Getting away once in a while will give you a chance to keep your perspective and independence, and give your family a chance to miss you. Best of luck to a very wise and sensible woman!
