ON GENERAL STRIKE
By Ralph F. Couch
(United Press Staff Correspondent)
Washington, Nov. 12. Three hund
red and seventy-five thousand union
machinists throughout the United
States were voting today on a general
strike, in connection . with " the rail
road labor situation.
"The vote , is returnable late this
month," said .William H. Johnston,
president of the International Machin
ists Union. "Ballots were sent out a
month ago. '
"The Question directly before the
men is whether they shall strike If
congress passes anti-strike and, com
pulsory arbitration legislation,' now
before it in connection with settling
the railroad problem.
"If I know the machinists they will
hit the street the minute this legisla
tion passes if it does."
One hundred and twenty-five thous
and of the union machinists are em
ployed in railroad shops. As provid
ed in the strike ballot instructions,
they would be the first o go out. La
ter union machinists in all industries
would be called out to support them
in a sympathetic strike if necessary.
The machinists' vote la being taken
at a time when members of two of the
four great railroad brotherhoods are
conferring with Rail Director Hines
and pressing their demands for im
mediate wage Increases to make their
earnings conform to the increased
cost of living. These two brotherhoods
are the trainmen and conductors.
An answer falling far short of the
demands of these unions was given to
the committee yesterday, it was learn
ed. President W. G. Lee of the Broth
erhood of Railway Trainmen and
President L. E. Sheppard, of the Or
der of Railway Conductors were to
confer with Hines again today.
A referendum on Hines' answer will
be taken by both the trainmen and
conductors, it is expected.
Trainmen and conductors through
the country are threatening strike un
less their demands are met.
