ence of Jewish leaders from

Commonwealth countries
which convened in London

The conference, a land-
mark gathering of its kind,

munities in. Australia,

Anglo-Saxon law stems
in large measure from

Jewish law, Rose said.
The CJC leader said he
told the British Prime
Minister that her decision
to send a task force to deter
aggression against the
Falkland Islapds
exemplified British law. He
also noted that the British
public saw the conse-
quences of terrorism on
their television sets every
night. It would be unthink-
able, he said, that terrorists
should have any voice in the
forthcoming negotiations
between the United King-
dom and the Irish Republic.
Therefore, Rose said, he
told Thatcher he found it in-
explicable that the British
government should ask Is-
rael to negotiate with the
Palestine Liberation
Organization. "It is also
strange that the PLO
should find any favor in the
eyes of the British govern-
ment since that organiza-

tion has strong links with
the IRA."
Rose said Thatcher re-
plied affirmatively when he
observed that "it is not
possible for Israel to live
under the threat of terrorist
attacks and we hope that
this will be reflected in the
policies of Her Majesty's
Government."
He said Thatcher,
whose seat in the House
of Commons represents
the largest Jewish consti-
tuency in London, under-
scored the need to con-
tinue pressures on the
Soviet government to
alleviate the plight of
Soviet Jews.
Francis Pym, the British,
Foreign Secretary, ad-
dressed the Commonwealth
Jewish leaders. He reiter-
ated Britain's support for
Israel but asserted that the
Palestinians must be recog-
nized and made part of the
peace process, Rose re-
ported.

U.S. Court Backs Adventist
Refusal to Pay Union Dues

NEW YORK — The
American Jewish Congress
has hailed a ruling by a fed-
eral court of appeals uphold-
ing the right of a Seventh
Day Adventist in Michigari
to refuse to pay union dues
on the basis of her religious
beliefs.
Nathan Z. Dershowitz,
director of AJCongress'
commission on law and so-
cial action, says the ruling
is in keeping with the
statutory guarantees of
freedom of religion. An
amicus brief filed by the,
organization in 1981 urged
the appeals court to rule for
the employee. • 7
In its decision, the Sixth
Circuit Court of Appeals af-
firmed an earlier ruling by
the U.S.. District Court for.
the Western District of
Michigan upholding the
constitutionality of Title
VII of the Civil Rights Act of
1964 which requires em-
ployers and unions to ac-
commodate the religious
practices of employees if
they can do so without "un-
due hardship."
In the case, employee
Doris McDaniel claimed
religious discrimination
because she had been
fired from her job at the
Essex International
Corp. for refusing to join
or contribute to the In-
ternational Association
of Machinists, as re-
quired under the union's
contract with the em-
ployer.
Ms. McDaniel said she
could not support the union
because the tenets of her
church, the Seventh Day
Adventist, forbid it. She of-
fered to make a contribution
to charity in the amount of
the required union dues, but
the union turned down the
offer. Ms. McDaniel was
fired in 1972.
The Sixth Circuit Court of
Appeals held not only that
where a union contract con-
flicts with statutory
guarantees of freedom of

religion, the contract must
give way, but that in this
case there was no finding
that the employer or union
would suffer "undue hard-
ship."
The court also held that
an employer could not cite a'
union's insistence on
enforcement of contract
provisions as justification
for infringing on an em-
ployee's religious rights.
