'U' Cellar
negotiations

By PATRICIA HAGEN
Disagreements on central issues, a lack of communication,
and inexperience continue to impede negotiations for the first
contract between management and the newly unionized em-
ployees of the University Cellar bookstore.
Spokespersons for both the union and the management said
aome progreaa on minor points waa made at an eight-hour
bargaining session last Saturday, but indicated dissatisfac-
tion at the slow pace of negotiations.
STORE -EMPLOYEES have been represented by In-
dustrial Workers of the World (IWW) Local 660 since
January. The bookstore in the basement of-the Michigan
Union is overseen by board of directors consisting of studen-
ts, faculty, and administrators.

Union and management spokepersons said they hoped a
contract would be ready before fall when most students
return and purchase books, the busiest time at the time. They
said it was unlikely that negotiations would be completed.
A bargaining meeting was scheduled for last night.
A union negotiator called Saturday's marathon session
"frustrating." The tslks "didn't get into any major issues,"
Bill Vargo said.
"VERY LITTLE" was accomplished according to
management negotiator Bruce Wineburg. "It was a typical
negotiating session for us." He said agreement was reached

upholds
affirmative

quotas
From UM and AP
WASHI'NGTON - The Supreme
Court told private industry yesterday it
may voluntarily set up many kinds of
affirmative action employment
programs without fear of being sued by
whites on "reverse discrimination"
charges.
On a 5-2 vote, the court upheld a
racial quota which Kaiser Aluminum
and Chemical Corp. and a union used to
select applicants for an on-the-job
training program.
The decision reversed a lower-court
ruling striking down the quots, which
was challenged by a white factory
worker named Brian Weber as a
violation of the 1964 Civil Rights Act's
bar against racial discrimination in
employment.
THE JUSTICES provided a momen-
tous victory for advocates of "affir-
mative action" programs for
minorities by allowing even employers
with no proven history of racial bias to
offer the special preferences.
Employers with a proven historytof
racial bias can be required by the
government to offer special preferen-
ces.
The court said racial quotas may be
