WASHINGTON-Secretary of Labor W. Willard Wirtz reported
yesterday that the railroad industry and three shop craft unions
remain deadlocked in a wage dispute that led to a strike threat last
Wirtz said however no new strike date has been set since the
unions called off last Tuesday's scheduled walkout at his request.
Wirtz said the only issue in the present dispute is salaries, not
seniority or working conditions.
He said the railroads and the three unions are about 10 cents
apart on a proposed three-year contract.
