Federation Of Government
Employs Are Told They
Must Form Organization
Declaring that Michigan now has a
good civil service law, Dr. Arnold
3. Zander, president of the American
Federation of State, County and Mu-
nicipal Employes, told more than 200
members of the union Wednesday at
he Masonic temple that state em-
)loyes must organize to see that it is
fairly enforced.
Dr. Zander pointed out that only
six or eight of the states which op-
rate under a civil service system have
*i fair administration of the law.
ie said that the "open back-door pol-
.cy," by which the supervisor may
discharge any employee; the 90-day
emergency job provision, by which
employes may get positions for that
oeriod without civil service examina-
ion; and possible defects or malad-
ministration of the classification sys-
tem may result in unfair treatment
to the laboring man.
"Our union is aiming at an im-
orovement in the public service," Dr.
Zander continued, "and we feel that

governmental organization we must

industrial union; our members are
from the service, not from specific
J. Lyle Sage, president of the
Trades and Labor Council of Battle
Creek, declared that organization was

out the benefits which have already

┬░nce, and urged the union members
to see that the civil service law is
Gerald Russell, of Pontiac, chair-
man of the state locals, told the au-
dience that, "The stronger our or-
ganization gets, the more gains we're
going to get," and urged a large and
strong State organization in order to
influence governmental policies.
James A. Daar, Detroit, AFL or-
ganizer in Michigan, reported to the
union that the national convention
was very enthusiastic about the
growth of the state employes' organ-
ization, and assured the rank and
file that their officers were among the
finest in the country.
Roderick MacDonald, Detroit, AFL
organizer in the State, declared that
State administration is friendly to
labor "from top to bottom." He said
that William Brownrigg, civil service
director would speak to the local
union in the near future.
