The co-op hopes to provide the community

bicycles and return expecting to find them re-
paired," says Ray Lewis, an organizer.
"We're going to encourage people to work
on their own bicycles and teach them how if
they want to know. We'll send those who don't
want to work on their own bicycles to a bike
shop, Lewis added.

Tellers try for union

Following over a month of ef-
fort by bank employes, Huron
Valley National Bank i Ann
Arbor may become the first
bank in the state to unionize.
After attending a recent
three-day hearing in Detroit
before the National Labor Re-
lations Board (NLRB), repre-
sentati xes of bank eployes
have expressed confidensee that
their attempt at union organiz-
ing will soon succeed.
The hearing was held to deter-
mine the size of the potential
usion's bargaining unit, but no
decisions were reached.
Lawyers from both sides now
have fourteen days to file briefs
with the NLRB. Then the NLRB
district board member makes the
final decision on the size of the
unit. Bank employes will then
vote on whether to recognize the
Bank attorneys argued during
the hearing that certain levels
of management, including as-
sistant managers, should be in-
cluded in the bargaining.
In reply, one union organizer
said, "The Bank owners are try-
ing to stack the bargaining unit
that way with votes to under-
mine the union's power."
Hank employes began union
org anizing last month. They cite
low salaries and alleged racial
and sex discrimination as mo-
tives for their efforts.
According to one organizer,
"The starting teller's salary is
only $70 to $80 per week. This
compares unfavorably with the
wages of other white-collar
clerical workers."
Another teller at Huron Valley
who intends to vote for the
uniorr said, "I like my job a lot.
Hut we're underpaid. It took a
couple of months to fully train
"It takes a couple of months
to fully train a secretary or a
bookkeeper. Yet we make con-
siderably less than any union
employee with a comparable job
and comparable training," he

arison seeks Dem
seat in State House

Marvin Carlson, a graduate
student in political theory, has
announced his candidacy for the
Democratic party nomination for
the State House of Representa-
tives 53rd district.
Perry Bullard, a lawyer, is also
seeking the nomination.
According to a statement, Carl-
son supports 'the removal of all
criminal and civil penalties at-
tached to the private use or
sale of marijuana."
But, the statement continues,
"I do not advocate the use of
drugs of any kind and am per-
sonally opposed to the use of
those which are addictive. 'Highs'
can be obtained by free, loving
persons just as well, but I will

not preach in the form of law to
others to follow my choice.,
Carlson also supports the re-
peal of abortion laws, the in-
itiation of a guaranteed annual
income and free health care.
