Feather-beddina scheme of Firemen's Union to put an additional ,

Now the Firemen's leaders seek to paralyze railroad transportation
to compel the railroads to employ a wholly unnecessary additional
fireman to ride on diesel locomotives. This scheme is plain
Leaders of the Firemen's union have

The onion claim that a second fireman
is needed, on grounds of safety is sheer
hypocrisy. Safety has been dragged into
this dispute only in an unsuccessful effort
to give a cloak of respectability to vicious
' feather-bedding demands.
After a careful study of the first de
mands of this union, a Presidential Fact
Finding Board on May 21, 1943, reported
to President Roesevelt that there was no
need for. an extra fireman on diesel
locomotives. ,.v .- ?-.--.-6v.j.
f;' Again, on September 19, 1949, after a
second hearing on the union leaders' de
mands, a second Board reported to Presi
dent Truman that: "there presently exists
no need for an additional fireman . . . upon

efficiency and economy of operation,!

on that point: i

of diesel electric locomotives operated

' "JJpon careful analysis of the data sub

that no valid reasons have been shown
as a support for the Brotherhood pro .
posal under which a fireman would be
required to be at all times continuously

. must be rejected." i , " :
-.The red reason behind these demands is
that the union leaders are trying to make
joos where there is no work. In other
words, a plam case of "feather-bedding.' '
The railroads have no intention of yield
ing to these wasteful make-work demands.
