patients. We just want a fair raise and
we want our benefits to stay the same."
The two sign-carrying union mem-
bers gradually gave way to the driver
inching a truck out of the loading area.
THE SLOWDOWN "doesn't have a
significant effect on the day-to-day
operations of the hospital," said
Assistant Director of Public Infor-
mation Joseph Owsley.
Murphy said the picket lines at the
University Hospital were "standard
practices. We're encouraging people to
honor our picket lines."
University Vice-President for Finan-
cial Affairs James Brinkerhoff said
"some of our external construction
projects (jobs contracted by non-
University tradespersons) have been
stopped," by the strike.
WORK ON HOSPITAL renovations,
the law library, and the Taubman
medical library has been halted.

"Tradesmen on those jobs didn't cross
picket lines," Brinkerhoff said.
A crew of workers, members of a non-
University trade union, stopped repair

Union picketers said the union

The University, they reported, has of-
fered pay increases between 4.4 and 7
per cent, depending on the pay grade.
Picketers said they were upset
because the University wanted to cut
back sick leave benefits.
"THEY WANT TO take away some of
our sick leave," said a union member,
holding a sign reading "U of M unfair to
skilled trades," outside the Michigan
Union. The union membership voted to
strike, he said, because "they weren't
getting anywhere with negotiations."
Several picketers claimed their pay
is "way below" that of trades workers
doing similar jobs off campus.
Murphy said University skilled
workers earn an average $3, an hour
less than workers of similar

classifications in the private sector,
despite the fringe benefits provided by
Five years ago, trades council mem-
bers went on strike for 28 days. The
current strike, Murphy estimated,
costs individual workers about $7.50 per
hour in lost wages.
