CIO Expects
Annual Wage,
With Ease
Reuther Predicts
!xWin 'Either Way'
CLEVELAND (AP)-Walter Reu-
ther, head of the CIO and its big
to workers union, said yester-
Sday he sees a good chance of win-
ning the guaranteed annual wage
from the auto industry this year
'~without a strike.
But he pledged that his union,
which Reuther said is the nation's
largest labor organization, with a
claimed 1%/2 million members, will
win the year-around pay plan one
way or another, with or without a
"I guess I'm a born optimist,"
Reuther told reporters. "I think
our case is so good we'll be able
to convince them at the bargain-
ing table. But make no mistake
about it, our members will walk
out if the auto companies won't
guarantee us 52 weeks pay a
f year."
Convention Coming
Reuther's news conference came
on the eve of the United Auto
Worker's biennial convention. Del-
egates arrived in a snowstorm for
today's opening session.
New contract negotiations with
General Motors and Ford, the
auto industry giants, start in early
April a few days after the con-
vention closes. The guaranteed
wage plan, or guaranteed employ-
ment plan as Reuther prefers to
call it, is the main issue. The
showdown is . expected in June
when existing contracts expire.
Want Full Employment
The union wants the auto in-
dustry to guarantee full five-day
pay every week of the year. Reu-
ther said it's not that the workers
want pay for idleness, they want
to be kept fully employed.
He said it should cost auto
makers nothing if they regularize'
production-something, he said,
that would stabilize the entire
economy if generally adopted.
Reuther, reminded that auto
workers now are the best paid
-group in the country earning bet-
ter than $2 an hour, was asked
whether the year-around pay
might be so costly, because of
changing seasonal demands for
new cars, as to "kill the goose
that laid the golden egg."
