'77,

____._ _

WASHINGTON, (Reuter) -
Officials of the United Mine
Workers Union and Soft-coal
Mine Operators reported pro-
gress yesterday toward a new
contract, but not in time to
avoid a closing of the nation's
minesfields.
Negotiators for the Bitumi-
nous Coal Mine Operators told
reporters that four or five tough
bargaining issues remained un-
resolved but they hoped agree-
ment could be reached by Sun-
day, the day before the exist-
ing three-year contract expires.

THEY added that on such a
basis there could be a strike of
between 10 days and three
weeks, noting the unions esti-
mate that it would take about
that long for its membership
to ratify a new contract.
Union negotiators, represent-
ing some 120,000 mine workers,
mostly in eastern states, con-
firmed that progress had been
made during the day-long talks
here in a downtown hotel.
The report of movement for-
ward came during a break in
the closed door meetings, which

have been running off and on
during the week and included a
marathon session Wednesday
night and another yesterday.
AMONG the issues still to be
resolved, according to manage-
ment officials, pay - miners
now receive between $42 and
$50 per day - grievance arbi-
tration and discharge proce-
dures.
The strike would affect about
120,000 miners, mines in 25
states and about 70 per cent of

the country's bituminous (soft)
coal output., Some steel com-
panies already have indicated
they might curtail operations
and a strike would be a severe
blow to some railroads as well.
Negotiators have not disclos-
ed the substance of the unions
demands, or the counter-offers
by the Bituminous Coal Opera-
tors Association. But it is known
the workers want substantial
pay increases, along with a
cost-of-living rider to help ease

inflation.
CURRENT pay for miners
ranges between $42 and $50 a
day.
Working conditions, including
safety, are also at issue, ac-
cording to sources close to the
negotiations.
The White House has given
no indication that it plans to
postpone a strike by invoking
the 80-day cooling off period un-
der the Taft-Hartley Act.
There was a 44-day strike be-
fore the miners and mine op-
erators were able to reach their
existing contract three years
ago.
