AFL officials, government leaders
and industrial spokesmen, the

tion of its 10,000th arbitration
case, since its creation by former
Gov, Herbert H. Lehman in 1937.
Coincidentally fhe case con
cerned Local 32-B, Building Serv
ice International Union which is
seeking a wage increase for 26,
000 of its members employed in
office and loft buildings.
In a letter of greetings to the
board. Governor Dewey declared
that we in New York State have
stood consistently for a maximum
of voluntary mediation and arbi
tration and a minimum of govern
ment compulsion." His views
were amplified by State Industrial
Commissioner Edward Corsi. who
pointed out that compulsory leg
islation has been obviated in New
York because of the teamwork
between labor and management.
Among the speakers were Da
vid Sullivan, Local 32-B presi
dent. William Collins, AFL re
gional organizer; James C. Quinn,
representing the Central Trades
and Labor Council of Greater
New York and Arthur S. Myer,
Meyer pointed out that in 1947,
the board handled more arbitra
tions than were handled by all
other states combined.
Congratulations were also re
ceived from Cyrus S. Ching, di-1
rector of the Federal Mediation

Father William J. Kelley, O.M.L.,
chairman of the New York State
Labor Relations Board, has in re
cent days received signal honors
from two large AFL local unions
Local 3, International Brother
hood of Electrical Workers, has
unanimously voted to establish a
college scholarship named after
Father Kelley for his aid in super,
vising the biennial elections of
the local. Father Kelley, who act
ed in his individual capacity, de
clined any compensation for his
services. To show its apprecia
tion, Local 3 set up the Father
Kelley scholarship at the Cornell
University School of Industrial
Relations for children of union
The other union, Local 3, United
Association of Plumbers, also was
a recipient of Father Kelley’s aid
in supervising its elections. When
he rejected any reward, he was
asked what the union could do
to demonstrate its appreciation.
Father Kelley suggested that
the union set up a blood bank
for children in the metropolitan
area suffering from blood cancer
or other diseases of the blood.
The labor board chairman made
this suggestion because he wit
nessed the death of a friend’s
child from blood disease and he
saw how desperately this life
fluid was needed- by stricken chil
The plumbers local unanimously
adopted the suggestion and. after
voting to cal! it the Father Kel
ley Blood Bank, its president,
William T. Dodd, wrote Father
‘I feel proud that our union is
able and willing to make this con
tribution to suffering children,
and our membership, which voted
unanimously for this action, is
grateful to you for your eminent
ly humanitarian suggestion.”
