Chrysler renew contract talks

DETROIT - Voting on the tentative
contract between the United Auto
Workers union and Chrysler Corp. is
scheduled to resume tomorrow in the
face of a 2-1 nationwide rejection
margin and a promise from Chrysler to
consider returning to the bargaining
UAW President Douglas Fraser, who
had kept silent during the early days of
voting, conceded Friday the contract for
production workers would be rejected
and the union was preparing to return
to the bargaining table.
"I THINK it's clear that the
agreement that was negotiated is far
below the expectation of the Chrysler
workers," Fraser said. "The fact of the
matter is that the Chrysler workers
rejected the agreement."
He said the rank-and-file voting
would be completed anyway, with the
union's 10-member rank-and-file
bargaining committee convening after
the last local ratification meeting Thur-
sday to make plans to resume
He' said "a strike is not out of the
question" if worker demands for an
immediate wage increase are not met,
but he refused to predict there would be
Fraser said he thought Chrysler
Chairman Lee Iacocca contributed to
the demise of the contract by "boasting
about that $1 billion" in company
'I don't blame the Chrysler workers,"
he said. "Hell, they were told there's a
big pot of gold there."

... a strike is possible
Unions, Democrats to use
jobless rate against Reagan
By MATTHEW HENEHAN
The goal was to save money and
space, but the consolidation of the
Graduate and Undergraduate
Library reserve desks this year has
prompted tales of woe from disgruntled
professors and students.
Long lines, missing books, and tight
seating space have plagued the new
reserve desk on the third floor iof the
"IT'S A HASSLE, I usually wait
about 15 or 20 minutes in line," said one
political science student.
And sometimes, professors say, the
wait is in vain, as books which were
previously on reserve in the Graduate
Library have not yet been transferred
to the UGLI.
"Students really have to scurry
around to get their reading done," said
Prof. Ken Langten, who teaches a
graduate Political science course.
DAVE NORDEN, director of the Un-
dergraduate Library, explained that
the cause of many of the problems is the
University-wide hiring freeze which
began in August.
"The freeze just couldn't have come
at a worse time for us," he said. "We
had 25 percent more workload and no in-
crease in staff."
When the freeze was announced, the
reserve desk still had one full-time
position to fill, and students had to be'
hired on a part-time basis to put out the
course reading lists for the new system.-
Norden said the merger of the reser-
ve desks freed over 100 desks on the fir-
st floor of the library, but students say
they still are pinched for space.
"THE BIGGEST problem isn't the
long wait at the reserve desk, it's just
that there is nowhere to read. There
are no seats at all," one graduate
Senior Karen Williams agreed: '-'I
think it is a lot more crowded this year.
you have to get here by about 6:30
p.m. to get a seat."
Those long lines at the reserve desk
;may be diminishing, as the hiring freeze
was lifted Monday. Library Director
Dave Norden, now interviewing for the
vacant position, said "we'll be in better
shape for winter term."

For millions of American blue-collar
workers, dwindling job opportunities
will be a grim reality long after the
election or an economic recovery,
private business analysts say.
WHILE THESE analysts gave
varying predictions of when a business
turnaround will occur, they agreed that
millions of jobs in such industries as
auto, steel and rubber have been lost
For the last 10 years, they said, the
American economy has been changing
from reliance on the basic heavy
manufacturing industries, which held
sway in an earlier era, to dependency on
high-technology goods and services.
"There won't be a basic restoration of
the jobs lost in heavy manufacturing,"
asserted Allen Sinai, vice president and
chief economist of Data Resources,
Inc., a Lexington, Mass.-based
Joel Popkin, a Washington
economist, said employment oppor-
tunities will remain depressed long af-
ter a, business recovery "for those
blue-collar workers in the
"It seems to me that what's happen-
ding in the economy right now is a
secular trend that will lead the U.S. out
of the production of less sophisticated
manufacturing goods," Popkin said.
"It's an adjustment to a structural
change that is taking place in the
