with the University - he's get-

McCracken returned, "I'd like
to know who Hines knows in the
University." McCracken's cam-

promoted three times within six
months in 1972, despite the con-

Reading from a'prepared state-

by Caulfield:
"'You know that if the ad-

wall, it will have to take steps to
defend itself.'
"I took that as a personal
threat and I told him in response
that I had had a good life, that

en's supoorters were equally ser-
ious. A motion Hines made while
serving as chief steward was par-
ticularly criticized.
THE MOTION proposed that
the local nion withhold for its
own use the per capita tax it
pays to the AFSCME interna-
tional office. The- tax comprises
nearly $10,000 ot of the $16,000
in dues the 2700 member local
branch collects per month.
Hines' opponents called the
move "union busting" because if
a local withholds dues, the in-
ternational may place it in trus-
teeship, in effect usurping all
local authority.

ers claimed the effect of the

tending to encourage union mem-
bers to "vote their color."
