Wildcat~ mail strike

threats pass

WASHINGTON (AP) - Threats of
wildcat mail strikes fizzled yesterday
as a special arbitrator prepared to
impose a binding settlement in the five-
month-old postal contract dispute.
After holding a final meeting with the
Postal Service and three unions
representing 516,000 workers, Harvard
professor James Healy went into
seclusion yesterday to draft the ruling
that is due by 10 a.m. Saturday.
HEALY WILL decide two disputed
issues: whether to grant union pleas for
a bigger pay raise than the Postal
Service is offering and whether the

current contract ban against worker
layoffs should be weakened, as
management wants.
Meanwhile, dissident local leaders of
the largest postal union, angry that
Healy's ruling will deny members a
contract ratification vote, said they
have all but given up earlier plans to
stage illegal walkouts that were to
begin last night in large cities across
the country.
"It does not appear at this time that
there will be any strike action," said
William Burrus, president of the
Cleveland local of the American Postal
Workers Union and leader of the
dissident group.
BURRUS SAID hopes to spark a
nationwide walkout, which is illegal
under federal law, have been
dampened by a lack of support within
the 299,000-member union.
r-

Union President Emmet Andrews,
who has sought since the start of
negotiations in April to avoid calling a
nationwide walkout, said reports of
overwhelming opposition to a strike
among his rank-and-file members have
been pouring into union headquarters
here.
Andrews also warned in the latest
issue of his union's magazine that
scattered wildcat strikes could result in
"disaster."
THE POSTAL Servic has vowed
to fire any striking workers, who also
could be fined and sent to jail under the
law. Additionally, a federal judge has
issued a restraining order against a
strike to serve as one ,more deterrent
against a walkout.
But Andrews' aides said privately
that the possibility of a nationwide mail
strike could resurface if Healy
produces a settlement that the union

considers unsatisfactory.
"If he (Healy) alters the no layof
clause, there will be a strike," said ont
union official, declining to be named
That belief was echoed by several loca
union leaders.
THE-UNIONS succeeded in retainin
the clause,twhich management fough
to eliminate, 'in an earlier, contraci
settlement that union member
rejected last month.
However, in exchange for keeping t
clause, the unions accepted a relativel
modest wage increase of 19.5 per cen
over three years. The wage hike, whic
includes cost-of-living raises, woul
boost the average salary of a posta
worker from 4 current $15,900 to abou
$19,100 a year in 1981.
The contract was rejected largel
because of the wage package, and th
unions threateneti to strike unless
management improved its wage offer.

A loss in national advertising for local
newspapers could also be possible ii
they were no longer the main papers i
the SMSA. An Ann Arbor News
spokeswoman said she is not overly
concerned with the possible loss of ad-
vertising because most of the Ann Ar-
bor News' clients are well established
with the paper and are aware of cir-
culation patterns in the area.
