m Tlie National Outlook
Ifn Settlement Os The Steel Strike
By Ralph Robsy
Utt h is been assumed that the |
9te*el ‘strike would be settled be- 1
fore the expiration of the eighty.
day injunction period. The basis!
dl tthlsj assumption was that both |
eednaaic and psychological sac-
I toils would lead the companies I
aid 4)ii«n management to reach j
ar( agreement. None the lass i
announcement of the settlement
as a major surprise. |
MF fMas a surprise 'oecause the
final; hearings of the presidential
fajst. finding board were as harsh
as** stieh a meeting could be. ’
The Upion president, David Mc-
Donald, was extremely caustic
in', his. comments about manage
ment, g claiming that the com- 1
ridni*s were trying to break up
the union. The chief of the
eompahy negotiators, R. Conrad 1
dooper, also was caustic, insist- .
ing the union was making in- !
flationary demands. Even the i
chairman of the committee saw
no possibility of working out an *
agreement because it was evi- j
dent mat, judging by these hear-,
ipgs, i union and management j
wfsre jnot only as far apart as |
ever, *but were taking a harder
position on their stands.
It appeared certain, therefore.

I that "would be to
| have a vote by the employees
I on the last offer of management.
! But there was no hope that this
j would be accepted by the work
ers. There was no hope on this
I because the record shows that
■the union always makes this a
i vote of confidence in the union
leaders, not on the terms of
| settlement offered by manage
ment. In these circumstances it
is almost inevitable that the:
final offer be refused. I
t The next step would be term- j
ination of the injunction and j
presumably another walk out":
by the workers. At that point
, the Administration and the Con
' gress would be expected to step
in with some kind of a forced
1 settlement, and perhaps new
, permanent legislation designed
: to meet the problem of industry
' wide strikes.

Some of the steel companies
probably can absorb this rise in
j the cost of production, but oth

j shall see higher steel prices.
; That will lift the cost of produc

panies, and many of them will
' be forced to raise prices.
The only offset to this is the
fact we shall have so-calledj
peace in the steel industry. That !
the public has paid, and will:
pay, an enormous price for this
peace goes without saying. Even
more dismal is the thought that.

that the samething will not be
