House Committee favors
$2.6 billion budget cut

(Continued from Page31)
framework for the 1981 budget.
Spending cuts tentatively approved
by the House committee yesterday in-
cluded $1 billion from the strategic
petroleum reserve, $30 million in
deferred park acquisition and water
projects, and $200 million from con-
struction of veterans' hospitals.
The committee was scheduled to
resume work on the budget tomorrow
and hoped to complete action by
Friday.

Both the administration and the
committee are cutting from Carter's
$615.8 billion January budget, which the
budget panel re-estimated because of
inflation to total $628.3 billion.
Giaimo said the committee would fall
behind schedule if it waited for Carter's
budget, but he thought the president's
plan would closely parallel his. He
stressed that his cuts were based on two
weeks of meetings between Democratic
congressional leaders and' ad-
ministration economic advisers.

AKRON, Ohio (UPI) - Jolting the
ailing rubber industry, Firestone Tire &
Rubber Co. announced yesterday it will
shut down six plants and lay off 8,500
workers this year.
Chairman Richard Riley made the
surprise announcement in a prepared
statement, saying the shutdowns,
slated for completion by Nov. 1, are
part of a restructuring of the com-
pany's North American operations,
FIRESTONE, the nation's second-
largest tiremaker, will discontinue
production at tire plants in Dayton and
Barberton, Ohio; in Los Angeles and
Salinas, Calif.; in Pottstown, Pa., and
at a synthetic latex plant in Akron.
Top United Rubber Workers Union
executives, including URW Inter-
national President Peter Bommarito
and leaders of the affected local unions,
gathered in Akron for an emergency
closed-door meeting on the situation.
"Once again, the worker is the victim
of a situation beyond his control,"
Bommarito said, adding that he was
shocked that the company would take
such drastic action without first asking
the union for help.
HE BLAMED increased imports of
autos and tires as well as rising energy
costs for the closings.

A union spokesman said the latest
closings would boost the total of tire
plant jobs lost since 1975 to 19,200 - ad-
ding that some 6,000 jobs evaporated in
the past 15 months alone.
The URW estimated Firestone's daily
tire production will be reduced by 34.4
per cent when'the plants are closed.
Bommarito said he plans to mee
with local union presidents involveU
:and will set up a special team to help
the six locals.
Under the 1979 master contract, the
company was required to give the union
six months notice of plant closings. The
contract also gives the union the right
to try to negotiate a way to save the
plant.
If no settlement can be reached to
keep a plant open, the URW spokesma*
said "other measures might be co4
sidered," including the possibility dP
employee ownership.
FIrestone's financial position has
been hurt since last year by a gover-
nment-mandated recall of the com
pany's "500" radial passenger tires, af-
ter government studies indicated the
tire could be defective. The action was
the largest tire recall in history.
