believed that there will be an
effort to solve the problem speed-
ily, pressure from the community
in protest against the firing of
the teachers having reached a
high pitch.

The Shaarey Zedek Teachers As-
sociation maintains that it was
forced to go to the Michigan State
Mediation Board because of the
synagogue's refusal at first to
recognize the association as a bar-
gaining agent and because of the
dismissal of the teachers. Pending
before the State Mediation Board
are two charges: One of unfair
labor practices, and the hearing
on the dismissals has been set for
Nov. 7; and one dealing with the
over-all problem involving notice
of intention to strike starting Oct.
23 unless the grievances are re-
solved. The strike notice was filed
on Monday by Sidney Kelman, one
of the Shaarey Zedek teachers who
has been assigned to act as the
association's bargaining agent.
His associate as bargaining agent
is the veteran Hebrew teacher,
Dov Parshan.

The Jewish News also learned
that a message is being issued
to the Shaarey Zedek membership
explaining the synagogue's stand.
A synagogue official has been
quoted as stating that the letter
will be "unkind" to the teachers.
A report of intention to strike,
published in a Detroit newspaper
on Sept. 29, was premature and did
not stem from the Shaarey Zedek

teacher's group, it was indicated
on Monday. The reporter for that
paper had taken the information
from the blotter of the Michigan
State Mediation Board after the
charge of unfair labor practices
was filed with the mediation board
two weeks ago.
It became known this week that
the latter charge, resulting from
the dismissal, a day prior to the
meeting of the Shaarey Zedek
teachers under State Mediation
Board auspices, of Sol Panush and
Jacob Gilany, president and vice
president of the Shaarey Zedek
Teachers Association, will be taken
up by the Mediation Board on
Nov. 7.
Thus, protracted negotiations
have added to the critical situation
in the teaching profession in the
community.

But on Monday, the United
Hebrew Schools' official spokes-
men gave recognition to the UHS
Hebrew Teachers Association
and will henceforth negotiate
with them, thereby ending what-
ever differences of opinion over
negotiations existed in the com-
munal education system.
Kelman, as chief negotiator for

the Hebrew Teachers Association
of Shaarey Zedek, filed the follow-
ing "Notice of intention to strike
and statement of issues" with the
Michigan Labor Mediation Board
on Oct. 1:
"The Hebrew Teachers Assoc-

iation of Congregation Shaarey
Zedek hereby serves notice that
it intends to strike effective Oct.
23, 1966. We had requested on
Sept. 20, 1966, that negotiations
begin immediately . . . on a con-
tract governing all relevant con-
ditions of employment for the
Hebrew teachers of Congrep-
tion Shaarey Zedek, e.g., rescind-
ing the discharge of teachers,
tenure, salaries, sick days, class
size school calendar, classroom
monitoring, staff meetings, out-
of-class assignments, grievance
procedures, etc. etc. To date
Congregation Shaarey Zedek has
eschewed setting a specific date
for the initiation of negotiations.
"The association is reasonably
certain that good faith negotia-
tions could culminate in a con-
tract not later than, and prob-
ably much before, Oct. 21, 1966.
To preclude protraction of nego-
tiations by the congregation
beyond this date we have fixed
Oct. 23, 1966, as the intended
strike date."

The issue which began with the
demand for recognition by the
Shaarey Zedek teachers and came
to a head with the dismissal of
the two teachers became aggra-
vated when the major Hebrew
teachers' groups, representing the
United Hebrew Schools, Hillel Day
School, Bnai David Religious
School and Beth Shalom Teachers
Association registered protests de-
manding reinstatement of the
teachers.
Refusal of the Shaarey Zedek
education commitee to reverse the
position taken by its chairman —
who admitted he had not author-
ized the signing of the telegram of
dismissal — and the new educa-
tional director preceded the filing
of the notice to strike.

Individuals as well as groups
began to ask for a reversal of
the unprecedented congregation.
al act and a group of Shaarey
Zedek members issued a state-
ment demanding redress for the
dismissed teachers and urging
Shaarey Zedek members to at-
tend the semi-annual meeting
called for Oct. 13, there to reg-
ister their concern over what
has occurred. Signing that ap-
peal, which appears in full on
page 13 of this issue are Drs.
and Mesdames Reuven Bar-Lev-
av and Ralph Cash and Messrs.
and Mesdames Joseph F. Savin,
William Shulevitz, William Schu-
mer and Sherwin Tukel.
