'U' CONTRACT EXPIRED 12 A.M. YES TERDA Y
Mediator, union to meet
Trades

union
strikes
By PATRICIA HAGEN
A mediator will meet this morning
with representatives for the striking
campus skilled trades council and the
University at the Michigan Em-
ployment Relations Commission office
in Detroit.
The 318-member skilled trades union
went on strike when their contract with
the University expired at 12 a.m.
yesterday. Union picketers were
stationed around campus and the
University Hospital yesterday, after
voting to strike at a general member-
ship Tuesday night.
Supervisory personnel will provide
only emergency services and repairs on
campus during the strike, according to
the University's chief negotiator, Per-
sonnel Administrator Arlie Braman.
"Other (University) employees are ex-
pected to report as usual," he added.
THE TRADES COUNCIL includes
electricians, painters, plumbers, car-
penters, masons, heavy equipment
operators, and construction, roofing,
sheet metal, and machine workers on
the Ann Arbor, Flint and Dearborn
campuses. The unit is represented by
the Washtenaw County Building Trades
Board of Directors.
Spokesmen for the University and
union negotiating teams declined to
comment on the status of negotiations.
"You have to look on the bright side,"
said Jim Murphy, trades council
president. But, "sick leave seems to be
an issue."
PICKET LINES AT University
Hospital loading docks slowed down
truck deliveries only slightly, accor-
ding to picketers and hospital
spokespersons.
"We're slowing the progress of trucks
going in and out," said a union member
at a hospital driveway. "We're not

Former LSA dean Haber:

By JULIE ENGEBRECHT
William Haber was disappointed that
he wasn't in Ann Arbor when the
University Board of Regents named
Harold Shapiro, current vice-president
for academic affairs, the University's
next president.
But Haber, who turned g0 in March,
was in Indiana arbitrating a dispute
between postal workers and a city
there. Labor arbitration is only one part
of his busy schedule.
Haber has known president-elect
Shapiro since the day the academic af-
fairs vice-president came to the
University.
"I'VE NOT made a survey, and I'm
not Mr. Roper or Mr. Gallup, but I've

heard on that phone," gesturing to the
one in his office in the LSA Building,
"and from people who have entered
that open door," pointing again,
"nothing but praise and good things
about Harold. People are really pleased
about it. It's no accident."
He explains every point with a story,
and ends almost every memory with
laughter. He has a penchant for telling
anecdotes about former University
administrators.
The former LSA dean and Depar-
tment of Economics chairman has kept
busy since he reached "retirement"
age 11 years ago, and currently holds a
position as adviser to the University's
executive officers.

'U' confidante,
HABER HAS served the University
through three presidents: Alexander
Ruthven, Harlan Hatcher, and Robben
Fleming. He speaks with utmost ad-
miration and respect for the current
head of the Corporation for Public
Broadcasting.
"I have a special debt to Bob
Fleming, who, when I reached so-called
retirement age, said, 'You probably
aren't going to retire, but will probably
go teach at another institution. Why not
stay here? We'll find something for you
to do,' " Haber recalled.
He counts among his friends
dignitaries and officials from all over
