Management Not As Well Prepared
As Labor For Task Of Bargaining
By BRUCE BIOSSAT
Cyrus Ching, director of the Federal Mediation service, says he
thinks it's fair to conclude that unions come to the bargaining table
better prepared than employers.
He told the United States
News: "I think they (the unions)
frequently have a more persuas
ive background of figures and
facts, whereas the employer,
thoueh well and ably represented
Is frequently unfamiliar with the
statistics of the industry, or the
area, or the practices In other
Ching cannot easily be accused
of pro-labor bias. He was once
labor relations director of the
United States Rubber Company.
Furthermore, his mediation ser
vice gets an 'nside look at more
labor disputes than any other

lations experts ought to feel
some embarrassment at his

On the other hand, he believes
that union negotiators often ac
quire wide familiarity with an
industry's problems just from
their repeated . appearances ' 1 n
conferences with many firms in
the field. Management, of course,
cannot duplicate this experience.
A further management difficul
ty is that top executives nowa
days bear a tremendous load.
Many argue they are so burden
ed with having to make fast, ac
curate business decisions that
they have virtually no time to
see their job in any real perspect
ive. They don't always know all
they should about their own com
pany. They may never even
glance at reports in trade papers
or other sources that tell how the
rest of the industry is handling
Anyone can sympathize with
their dilemma. But however
great the load, It still seems fair
to ask employers to arm them
selves with the fullest possible,
information when they sit down
with union leaders.
Management owes this much
to Itself, to the unions and to the
public which wants a fair settle

Rodger Young, who won the
congressional medal of honor in

Solomons, never could quite make
the first team in basketball in
high school. He tried, too.
But, Rodger was too short a
miniature five feet, six inches
in a game tailored for tall men.
He was fast and he was furious
and the coach sometimes put him
in the lineup.
Then, one day a basketball
struck his head and impaired
hie hearing. He gave up school
for that reason in his junior
year. A few years later with the
rest of company B, 148th in

He rose to sergeant In the
rough, tough infantry. But, air
raids and shelling lessened his
hearing. So, Rodger voluntarily
gave up his stripes. He was
afraid his hearing might endan

the shy Ohioan with an ingrown
sense of duty, might never make
the first team.
But, he did.
