The miners are asking removal of
a 50-cent monthly increase in dues
and a $2 daily wage bonus.
Lewis contended the principal
grievance was not the dues increase,

cratic manner at the UMW conven-
tion, but dissatisfaction over "low pay
and part-time employment."
Lewis said the dues could be
changed only by a constitutional con-
vention of the UMW, and the existing
contract with the operators would
remain in force until April 30.
