After Federal Aid Refused Employes Fight To Save Troubled Airline MIAMI, Kin. (A!') - The fight lor federal help lo save cconomicidly troubled I'un American World Alnvuys is not restricted lo executive suilcs. It also involves people behind reservation desks, in maintenance hangars and on the runways. Like the executives, the em- ployes arc raiding to the Ford administration's refusal lo grant an emergency subsidy that Pan Am has said is crucial to its survival. The employes have organized in such Pan Am -.bases as Miami, Berlin, New.York, Karachi, San Francisco and San Juan in an effort to keep the company from going under. They have outlined their complaints in full-page newspaper advertisements -- paid for with $10,000 raised among themselves. COMMITTEES FORMED Committees have been sent to Washington to talk to congress- m e n ; a group of pilots' wives is distributing copies of an article which outlines alleged 'unfair treatment; "Support Your U.S. Airline" bumper stickers were printed by employes in a comp a n y p r i n t i n g , facility; retired stewardesses arc donating proceeds Irom a eookbook'they're selling in Miami. An employes group in Ka rachi has oven offered to returi iill the overtime pay received lust month. Some inlcrnalional crewmen have ottered 10 per ccnl or their salaries as loans. "H's going beyond Ihc job," said Sandra Del Conic, who has .vorkctl at the Miami rcscrva- .ions desk since 1%5. "It's a cause. This is the American way. Everybody is p u l l i n g lo- gelher." They say they're not campaigning for a federal subsidy, but for an cud to what they consider unfair treatment. ."It's;,.probably, best that we didn't get t h e " subsidy," said Miami cargo department em- ploye Edisou Coulter. "Most of the people here don't want subsidy. But we have to get t h e inequities changed." Pan Am has about 32,500 workers worldwide. About 3,400 are in Miami. INEQUITIES 'Â·Â·:Â·: The inequities, workers explained, are such things as the United States paying' foreign carriers more lo carry U.S. mail than Pan Am is paid; Pan Am being forced to pay higher landing fees at overseas airports than foreign airlines are charged in this country, and Ihe fact that Pan Am has. to pay higher interest rates on loans than the U.S. Export-Import bank charges the foreign- "The more Uic regular Pan Am employe knows about Iho way this airline has been treated, Ihc madder he gets," said Joseph Hunt, a Ilight engi- icer who has been with the company for 32 years. "Why in icll docs our State Department sit back and watch one of its own children being chewed up by the people across the street.' Think He's Guilty .
