THIS IS because on the aver-

The remainder is for distribu-

'U' residents, interns
may picket hospitals
By JO MARCOTTY
Interns and residents of the University Medical Center may
begin picketing local hospitals if their three-month-long contract
dispute is not solved within approximately two weeks.l
However, members of the interns' and residents' union -
the House Officers Association (HOA) - have fresh hopes for
gaining a settlement soon.
ERIC HODEEN of the HOA said last week's bargaining ses-
sion was one of the most productive the parties have held.
"It was a good meeting," he said. "We were pleased with thet
progress. We got down to discussing individual items, and that's
the first time we've been able to do that."
While union members see possibilities for a quick settlement,
they expect some sort of job action if the talks reach an impasse.1
"IT DEPENDS entirely on which way the negotiations go,"'
Hodeen said. "If things keep moving, it won't come about." a
The union officers are forbidden by state law to direct their
members to picket or stage any work slowdown. Any job action
"would have to be a spontaneous movement" by the rank-and-
file members, Hodeen said. "I can't tell anyone else to go out
there," he added.
Hodeen explained that a job action deadline must be deter-
mined by a vote of the union membership.
