TO OUR EMPLOYES AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC :
Inasmuch as a report is being generally circulated in this community that men or women must bear a Union card before employment
can be secured, we believe it only fair to our employees and the public that we declare the principles for which we openly and
Wc believe the only sound principle on which business should be conducted is that known as the "OPEN SHOP" principle, under
which men may seek employment and employees are selected and retained on their merit without. regard to whether they do or do
not belong to any Labor Union, and wc are opposed to the "CLOSED SHOP" principle, which denies employment to those who are
not members of a union.
Wc have heretofore conducted our various business enterprises on the "OPEN SHOP" plan and will continue to do so. Klamath
has heretofore been a peaceful and prosperous community, and can continue so, if Radical Unionists, Agitators and Walking Dele
gates find they cannot make their living out of those who work and honestly earn their money. The Agitator's policy of "Rule
or Ruin" is not of benefit to any community as people elsewhere have learned to their sorrow; and permitting four or five
agitators to stop all industry in this community of over 10,000 people in an endeavor to establish themselves in control and to dictate
when and where you can work and when and where you cannot work is a disastrous thing for all concerned. The only person who
gains is the Agitator.
WE HAVE ADOPTED THE FOLLOWING POLICY WHICH EACH AND EVERY
ONE OF US ENDORSES AND PROPOSES TO STAND BY:
1. EMPLOY working men and women without any regard
whatsoever to the fact that they do or do not belong to any
' labor organizations.
2. BASE the pay of such employees upon their individual skill,
ability and industry.
3. Pay employes as high wages as existing conditions will
4. MAINTAIN present working hours and the best working
conditions possible, consistent with the line of industiy.
5. EXPECT from each employee an honest day's work, per
formed to the best of his ability.
t 6. PROTECT eveiy man and woman in the lawful exercise of
his or her natural right to earn a livelihood.
7. RECOGNIZE THE RIGHT OF EMPLOYEES TO SUBMIT
ANY AND ALL COMPLAINTS AND WAGE QUESTIONS
TO THEIR EMPLOYERS, EITHER INDIVIDUALLY OR
8. DENY THE RIGHT OF OUTSIDE PARTIES TO INTER
FERE IN MATTERS ARISING BETWEEN EMPLOYEE
9. DEMAND that there be justice and the square deal for all,
and License and Special Privilege for none.
10. INDORSE and support eveiy organization, whether of Em
ployers, Employees, or the General Public standing for Law
and Order and for the rights of American Citizens.
Opposed to this report that is now being circulated, we
hereby announce that it will not be necessary for any employee -to
be a union member to secure employment or continue in the
employment of any of the undersigned employers.
