Argus employes strike

Postal strike threat looms

(Continued from Page)
"They're probably afraid that
when we unionize we'll ask for
better working conditions, or
more pay, or benefits," she
claimed. "We don't have any
benefits now, we jist collect a
paycheck."
WHEN QUESTIONED as to
whether he would consider a
new NLRB election fair, Day
said, "I wouldn't speculate on
that." Strikers report, however,
that they would not consent to
a new election because they
feel the first election was valid.
Day said he does not recog-
nize the strike as official, be-

cause he has "not been offic-
ially notified that my people
are striking."
Strikers reported having been
told by company officials,
"We're not anti-union, we're
anti-loss." Day claimed that
his company is not, in fact,
anti-union, but is concerned
that workers who would not
want to join a union would be
forced to pay dues if unioniza-
tion were permitted.
ARGUS HAS hired 10 to 15
workers to replace striking em-
ployes and has assigned some
workers to jobs they do not
ordinarily perform.

UNDER THE new system,
clericals re-route mail by using
specially prepared mimeograph-
ed stickers listing every change
of address in the last year.
According to Schneeberger,
before centralized mark-up went
into effect, nearly 85 per cent
of all complaints directed at
the post office stemmed from
incorrectly forwarded mail.{
Local letter carriers, however,
dispute this figure and claim
that an equal number of errors
will be made by the clericals.
"OFF THE top of my head, I
could name you 90 correct for-
warding addresses of people
that used to be on my route,"
says one letter carrier. "This
new system is just a waste of
time. When we were forwarding
mail, we'd mark a new address
and the letter would be on its

way five minutes later - now
there's all this nonsense of
stickers and people running
around looking up addresses."
Schneeberger, however, denies
that centralized mark-up -will
cause any significant delays in
the forwarding system.
"This process may cost us a
little more money at first, but
when you're working with the
mails, you can't afford to pro-
crastinate," he says. "This sys-
tem has been successful else-
where and we expect it will be
here."
DESPITE his emphasis on the
efficiency of the centralized sys-
tem, Schneeberger admits that
local mail "occasionally might
be delayed one day."
BgcauLe letter carriers have
fewer mail processing duties
now, their routes have been
lengthened in a move aimed at
eventually eliminating 16 or 17
carrier positions through attri-
tion.

The longer hours spent de-
livering mail are a major griev-
ance among letter carriers, who
protest that cutting back on
their office work makes their
job more grueling and more
likely to provoke heart attacks
and other illnesses due to heat,
cold and dampness.

ployes," Hinerman says. "Too
bad it happens at the same time
we're having to make other ad-
justments because of our fi-
nancial position."
THE UNIVERSITY Club's
present financial status has
added fuel to a controversy sur-
rounding the restaurant's rela-
tionship to the University.
'We are University - related,
but not University - related,"
says Peter Heydon, a club
board member. "We're not Uni-
versity - related because we
have a liquor license, yet our
board of directors must he ap-
proved by the Regents. So we're
neither fish nor fowl."
haw Prof. Samua Estep, a
founder of the club' and a mem-
ber of its executive board, says
the restaurant's relationship to
the University "depends on
how you look at it." Estep nego-
tiated with the state Liquor
Control Comission for the U
Club's license.
WHILE THE club has a sepa-
rate charter, he says, the res-
taurant is "under University
labor conditions."
Harlan Mulder, assistant to
the chief financial officer of the
University, says he "wouldn't
even try" to categorize the U
Club's connection to the Univer-
sity, since "it is a complicated
and legal-type question."
As part of the University, the
club has claimed the right to
pay lower taxes than it would
if it were separate from the
University. The city and the U
Club are presently in court over
the club's contention that it is
exempt from city taxes.
WHEN THE CLUB applied
for a liquor license, however, it
acted as a private corporation.
According to the Michigan
Liquor- Control Act, "no license
shall be issued by the commis-
sion .. . in such cases in which
the property or establishment
to be covered by the license is
situated in or on any state-
owned lands."
However, the law permits
licensing of 'such an establish-
ment if the "department or
agency charged with control of
such lands" submits an annual
certificate "setting forth that
the issuance of a license is not
incompatible with the objects
and purposes entrusted to such
department or agency."
REGENT Gertrude Huebner
(R-Bloomfield Hills) says the
University Club received a li-
quor license when Estep "clear-
ed it through the liquor com-
mission."
Huebner says there must
have been "some little legal
loophole," involved in the
clearance, and even Estep
agrees that the clause in the
Liquor Control Act concerning
state - owned property is "ar-
guable."
However, Estep says he sees
"no reason to get into this kind
of discussion with outsiders as
to which meaning (of the act)
is the proper one."

Next time you see
someone polluting,
point it out.
It's a spewing- 5nsokestac(k. It's litter
in thse streets. It's a river where fish
can't live.
You know what pollution is.
But not everyone does.
So the next time you see pollution,
don't close your eyes to it.
Write a letter. Make a call. Point it
out to someone who can do something
about it.
People start pollution. People can stop it.
