Dlhiini S'SitdCs
Because you, as a telephone User, have an im
portant stake in the issues, weM like to give some
straight answers to questions you may have
about the strike situation up to late.
J. Why Is There a Telephone Strike?
The unions made large clrmaiids. We could not
agree to these demands hut offered to extend .
contracts while bargaining continued. But the
unions refused. We then offered to arbitrate the
basic issue, wages. The unions again refused and
went oat on strike.
v 2. What Are the Unions Demanding? v
They are demanding scores oj changes in con
tracts which would, if granted amount to an in
crease of more than $100,000,000 a year in the
- cost of telephone service.
This amount is five times our J 9 46 earnings.
It would make our payroll alone larger than all
the ihoney we took in last year
3. What Do These Demands Mean to
Telephone Users?
The union demands equal t a year added to
each telephone bill. A 40 ier cent increase in
all telephone rates.
4. How Well Are Telephone Employes
Paid Now?
Studies show telephone wages are in line with
tbose paid for other jobs on the coast requiring'
similar skill and training. Telephone wage rates
now average 58 per cent above the 1941 level.
Here are typical examples: Operator even a
girl right out of high school starts at a basic rate
of $30 a week while learning - in small towns,
$28 to $29. Actual earnings kre higher due to
overtime and premium pay. There are frequent
pay raises, too. At the end ipfjthe first year the
new operator can be earning over $1900 .a year.
A supervising operator can earn over $2700 per
year working a 5-day week. Plant Maintenance
Men: actual earnings of many experienced men :
last year were more than $5000. The basic rate
for inexperienced men is $34 at the start and scales
up to $72. Overtime and premium pay are in ad
dition. 5. What Other Benefits Do Employees Get?
Among other extra advantages are paid vaca
tions up, to three weeks, depending on length of
The Pacific Telephone and
Death Benefits
. . Holidays with pay . .
, . Pensions . . .
. Sickness and
good working
And telephone work is steady . . . the kind a
person can count on.
6: Why Cant the Company Agree to
Union Demands?
Wages and other costs of service are paid by the'
people who use the telephone. We .can't give '
blanket agreement to the unions huge demands
because we cannot justify them to our customers
who pay the bill.
7. Hour-Has the Company Tried, to End '
the Strike? -
We wanted to extend the liberal working con
tracts while bargaining continued. But the
unions refused. We repeatedly offered to sub
mit the wage question . . . the basic Issue . . . to :
arbitration. But the unions continue to refuse.
We have offered the unions a practical plan to
settle the strike . . . a plan that is fair equally to -our
employees investors and customers.
8. When Will the Strike Be Over?
We don't know. But we believe that no matter
how long the strike lasts, it is in the public in
terest to face it rather than to capitulate to the
unions huge demands which would require large
increases in telephone rates. .
Meanwhile we will continue to do our best to
handle your calls.
Calls from dial to dial telephones, which make up f
the bulk of calls in many cities, are completed
without interruption. Many calls which require
the service of an operator are-also being com
pleted. Many telephone company people are workings
days and nights on strenuous shifts to keep ser
vice going. They have been joined by many others,
who put the public interest first. We appreciate
this loyalty.
We wish to thank the public for their helpfuL
cooperation during this troublesome period.
The Public Interest Must Come First
