Dollar Per Day Wage Increase Rejected
By Union Representatives at Mnzua
The Kinzua Pine Mills Company,
during negotiation conferences held
in Portland with representatives of
Lumber and Sawmill workers Union
Locals 2916 and 3098 on Nov. 14 and
15, offered a wage increase of 12V2
cents an hour, or one dollar a day,
to all of its employees, except fall
ers and buckers whose wages had
roared above $13 a day, according
to the statement of J. F. Coleman,
General manager of Kinzua Pine
Mills company. The wage increase
was to become effective at the time
the employees cease their strike
activities, which commenced as of
Sept. 24, 1945, and return to work.
The union representatives of the
local employees, after providing
brief consideration to the com
pany's offer, was rejected. It was
pointed out bv J. F. Coleman, that
the bureau of labor statistics report
of Aug. 3, 1945, on wages in the
lumber industry in this area of
Oregon revealed that the average
straight time hourly earnings for
In the name of the living, and of the dead,
And of those unborn Lord, bless the bread
Of brotherhood that now we break
In gratitude for Thy sweet sake.
In the name of the living we thank Thee, Lord
For deliverance from flame and sword;
For loved ones spared; for the task well done;
For the battle fought and the victory won.
In the name of the dead locked deep in sleep
Under alien earth give us strength to keep
Untarnished their dear-bought legacy,
The brave, bright armor of liberty.
And for those unborn Lord, we lift a prayer
For a wiser world where we all may share
A l&jting amity with men.
NPe thank Thee, Lord, for peace. Amen,

thp incentive workers in the logging
departmets was $1.87 and $1.76 for
like workers in the sawmills, while
the straight time average hourly
earnings of hourly paid employees
was $1.16 in the logging camps arid
$1.03 in the sawmills. Such a wage
structure, without any addition
thereto, is already one of the high
est in all industries throughout the
United States, the same being ex
ceeded, according to Bureau of La
bor statistics report by only two
other peace-time industries, name
ly transportation and automobile
manufacturing. Nevertheless, ac
cording to J. F. Coleman, manager
of Kinzua Pine Mills company, the
employees, through their union re
presentatives, after being out on
strike for eight weeks, reject a com
pany offer providing for a further
increase of . $1.00 a day, or 12
cents an hour. Negotiation efforts
were broken off upon the union's
rejection of the company's offer.
