Clericals launch new
drive to form union
By 3ULIE SELBST
Despite an unsuccessful attempt to
unionize last year, the Organizing
Committee for Clericals (OCC) has
mounted another drive to create an in-
dependent union for the approximately
3,300 University clerical workers.
"There's a crisis in (the number of)
clerical workers at the University," ac-
cording to University clerical worker
and OCC Chairwoman Jo Wilsman.
"We feel the major reason for that is
low pay. They (clerical workers at the
University's Flint and Dearbornacam-
puses) make more money because the
University has to compete with the auto
industries. The University is aware
they've got a captive audience in Ann
Low wages appeared to be the major
complaint clericals voiced in their
desire to form a union. Starting pay for
the lowest clerical classification is
$7,250 per year.
"WE DON'T have anything in this
school as far as bad physical places,"
spid one clerical. "I mean, we're not
typing in the basement or anything, but
clericals aren't especially well paid."
The University has seen a turnover of
nearly 40 per cent in the clerical staff,
since 0CC mounted its last organizing
drive in November 1978. "In some
ways, the turnover is to our advan-
tage," Wilsman explained. "The new
people tend to be very militant, very
pro-union. And our committee pretty
much represents that turnover."
A group wishing to organize a union
can take one of two approaches. It can
ask the managing body for recognition
or it can obtain signatures from at least
30 per cent of its constituency in order
to call for a union election. The second
approach was the one chosen by OCC.
"LEGALLY, YOU can petition for an
election with only 30 per cent of the
work force," said Steve Babson, a
Detroit labor historian, "but you'd be
crazy to" he added. "People get cold
feet, management makes threats, all
kinds of things can happen.
The clerical workers claim they have
collected about one quarter of the 1,200
necessary number of signatures needed
to call for an election. The group still
has between 800 and 900 signatures on
file from their organizing drive last
year. OCC must obtain new signatures
from those workers, however.
In 1974, the last time the clerical
workers successfully organized, they
unionized under the auspices of the
United Auto Workers. That proved to be
an awkward arrangement because the
concerns of public employees involved
different- problems in labor-
management relations than those in the
The attempt to unionize last year was
supported by the American Federation
of State County and Municipal Em-
ployees (AFSCME). But Wilsmanand
