Today In the \Jnlted States and Canada organi zed workers and their UnIons ~uc bemg cnticized, legislatively a t.tacked, and 10 man y cases judicially penalized fo r trying 10 pro tcct the Idcology and prldclple that workers, (rom the lowest p:ud to the highest paid, should not bear unfa" hardships caused by those who explolt workers while 170WIO& nch (rom greed and profit. Fighting the enemies of I.abor and their ultraconserva tive political cohorts, is tough work. T hcy have a large part of the general public l Ust about convinced tha t unions should be politica ll y gagged, the union hop outlawed, BI1UtruSl laws applied to umons l and Other me~1surcs applied to destroy the hfeline of labor umons, the free collecllve bargammg system. To have umon. obliterated corn pletely, i. the ruabohcal scheme of SQme powerful mdlvlduals and groups. Therefore, It IS up to the members of ul!)auj4cd labo. Lu be constantly on the iob, telling the truth, getting the union side of the Story aero S to the public, and helping p llitica lly coun teract the detrimental effects of the "umon busters," Il is not an ea y task to defeat the enemies of labor and stop them from taking away,ii the gains that have been made down through the years. It is lob that i~ a constant and never cnding task that mu t be done. h IS the smcere hope of the IBEW and every olher International union rhat the total membersjups of all umons who are wfenng from these antlumon attacks wtll nse and will take the appropria te oction to show the world that the rank and filc trade umon! ls, and by far a vast majority of umon leaders/ arc hone t, sincere, and dedicated to the aims and goals of labor. Unions arc a necessary, vically concerned parr of our society and economic llucluic tim! an: dc:,ij uu:, of obra inmg what I best for all the CItizens of OUf (WO great nations. Whenever our members do what ever they can to help keep the continued grow th and strength of the labor movement progres 109, they gain pro tcelion and ecurtry fo r themselves and their famtlles and al 0 benefit all workingpeople. Our Brotherhood's aims an rl eoa ls wtll al ways be to ac complish new economic and soc ial gauls for IBEW members as we join with other union in the effort of obtatnlng an even belter world III which to work and hve. Hopefuily our members Will fully realize the opporturuties tha( lay be forc,hem and take advamage of their potentl.1. Only then will we be ful filltng our purpose. Regardless of Ihe economic a.nd SOC ial uneertamtles caused by the tnals and tribulations we face mday, positive SignS do exist of changes fo r the better and a more progressive future. Indeed, the fu ture for mew members m,he United Statcs and Canada promlscs opportuniu cs and growth. Wc must be ready to eagcrly accept thc challenge and hard work accompanymg these opportu nities.. ~pcclfically because clcctncalelectronic and tclccommunlcanon Industncs are consulotly changing technologically, we must keep oursclvcs euucatcu, [ramed, and read y tu mc.c.t new challenges brought abou, by change. MOl\t irnpon.ant to rcmcmber is thilt we must be alert and aggressive in protecting our jurisdictions and make cerrain no Others IJlvade fields rightly our own. Thousa nds of unorg3j1izcd workers arc leopardlzlng our fmure sccunry by dolllg our jobs III construc tion, utilities, manufactunng, [Clephonc, radio and television, electrica l sign shops/ molqr repa ir shops, and other Important segments of energy sources. These non ulllon workers need the protecuo n of a UllIon agreement and the unitcd su pport that only a strong umon IS able to give them.

The cable was installed for the Public Service Electric and Gas Company of New Jersey from Liberty State Park, New Jcrsey, lying on the bot tom of cw York Harbor, to the Statue of Uberty. On July 4, 1986, wben President Reagan flips the switch to Illuminate tbe Statue of Liberty for her looth birthday, It will be thanks to the combined effo rts of the Okorute ompany of New Jersey; the implex Wlre and Cable Company of Newing ton, New Hampshire; and their employee, who are members of Local 1992, BrunSWIck, Ncw Jersey; and Local 220, Newlllgton, New Hampshirc; Unltcd Rubber Workers Lo a1637, Paterson, New Jersey, who manufac tured the cablc; and Loca l 164, Jersey ity, New Jersey, and Loca l 3, New York ity, who installed the cable.

Thc manufacture and installation of this cable is proudly donated on bchalf of au parnes involved to the Statue of Liberty Fund. Combining the latest in power-cable design and fiberoptic technology, tins uruque cable is one of the mo t sophisticated c"bles in existence. Designed to ligh t the way into her second cenrury and supply electrical p wer, along with the ability to carry Abcr-optic communications to Ellis Island, it i the culmination of an intensive sixmonth effort by design engineers from both the Okon' ite and Simplex Companies. 2 I IBEW JOURNAl!

19 TentJa District Progress Meeting Held In CJaicago. Illinois The Tenth District Progress Meeting was opened promptly at 9:30 a.m. on April 8, 19 6, at the O'Hnre Ramada Inn located in Ro emont, Illinois. After formal introducuon and welcoming of the lnternational Officers and guests, Tentl1 District Vice President A. M. Ripp immediately informed the delegates in attendance of the rail industry's ongoing plan to reduce our membership's present standard of living. The carriers, through th eir negotiating nrol, arc now demanding outrageous give-back and give-up provisions that have been gained over the last 50 years. ln view of the apparent hard-line approach instituted by rail management, Vice President Ripp announced that it is time to serve notice to the carricrs that our organization is prepared without any apprehension to stand up and be counted_ The assembled delegation overwhelmingly demonstrated their unarumous approval to any undertaking of tills nature. Vice President Ripp requested the delegation to stand for a moment of shent prayer for recently deceased formcr International Treasurer Harry Van Arsdale, Jr., and Vice General Chairman V. Clement, System Council No. 34. The keynote address, delivered by International President Charles H. Pillard, outlined the serious cha l lenges facing the mew and au of orga nized labor both in the Uultcd States and Canada. President Pillard cited the atta ck on organized labor undertaken by Our enemies wherein various laws that have protected union members and all workers for the past 50 years ha ve been destroyed since the Reagan administration has been in control of our government. Similarly, President Pillard ca lled attcntron to the Reagan administration's ongoing assault on organized labor that h. created an antiunion, antiworker t pro-busmess/ pro-inan.gement atmosphere, thereby obstructing the historical collective bargaining process. One perfect example of this fact is demonstrated by the present national negotiations between llie Wand the railroad. The National Mediation Board, under the direction of the administration, has aided and abetted the carriers in de Aance of th e Railway Labor Act. Pres ident Pillard reiterated our responsibility as uulon officials of not compromising our dctcnnination to represent and protect our membership to the fullest. President Pillard next focused on the extreme apathy toward active and retired rail workers displayed by the present administration.

In conclusion, President Pillard remin ded the assembled delegation of the upcollling 1986 congressional elections. In view of the facr that the enemies of organized labor are building a huge war chest consisting of nulllons and millions of dollars to defeat labor's friends in the 1986 elections, we as leaders must CODvince our member they must, lor rheir own best intere rs, contribute to IBEW-COPE so, in tum, the money can be returned to our local unions to help return our fnends to Congress and financially support new COPEsponsored candidates. International Secretary Jack Moore prc cnted a comprehensive repoft to the delegates on the key congressi onal races that wiu take place this election year. In his report, Secretary Moore outhncd the various congresspersons' voting records on issues im ~ portant to the labor movement.

In Ius repon on the current status of national negotiations, Vice Presi dent Ripp advised the delegation 01 the apparem complicity displayed by the National Mediation Board in prolonging the proces, Although we have demanded our release from mediation, the National Mediation Board has failed to provide a proper response. Vice President Ripp stated he was convinced the mediator, Helen Witt, has bee n deliberately gearing the negotialing procedure in fa vor of the carriers to the dettiment of the Electri ca l Workers. Vice President Ripp also reported on the di version of funds from the National Railroad Adjustment Board to special boards and for admiwstranvc purposes that ultimately leads to the CUlling back of funding for referees.

The study for lhc 'Oint Lconomlc Committee finds that the Baker Plan docs not diller "Slgnifi candy trom existing policy." The mollor Latin Amcncan debtor nations arc now generating large u3dc surplll:,e~, prunarily because they reduced theu' purchases of U.S. made goods.

" The s tudy &cts forth two olltf'mo:hlvc plans. One approach would have been to ask the commercial ban ks to reduce or chmmate thcir spread on loans to finan ~ cloliy rroubled debtor oollons. Whlie the banks would not have earned additional profit in such a casc, they would not howe lost money on their L3 ttn American loans either; bcsides l the American economy could have bcnefilled. A second alternative plan would have Illnited interest paynlcnts to a ccrtalo pr..:rccn tage of each dcbtor nationls export earnings and spccmcd that banks had to welt e down the value of thclr ou tst<lnding loans by il certai n amolllh during every year in which Latin American debtor n:juons rcached the rcvt.sct.!

Prcssures on Latin Amencan nnlons to debult or declare a debt payment moratorium could Increase sub~ t :Inllally _ In the end, the pro pect of loan defaults and moratonums could spell Anancl:11 nlln fo r the banks. As the report states,., Alternatives to present policy could help to avotd this prospect. They might slow the growth of bank proats, to be c;.ure, bul, in return, a long-term solullon 10 the Latm AmerIcan debt c n S1S would be rn place.

68 CAN MAKE YOUR VACATION HOLIDAY A HAPPY EVENT INSTEAD OF A TRAGIC ONE Thousands of lives are lost each year because people are thrown against windshields or out of car doors by the impact of crashes. Your chances at being killed in an accident are live times greater if you are thrown from the veh icle. Your seat belt will help keep you in the car. Contrary to popular notion, seat belts oller great protection at moderate speeds. More than hall of the accidents causing injury or death involve speeds of less than 40 miles an hour. Your seat belt can prevent or lessen injury in an accident and may save your lite. Many people mistakenly believe that they don't need sea t belts because they drive mostly in their own communities and seldom take long trips. But the figures show that two out of three trallic deaths occur within 25 miles of home. Your seat belt can protect you in town as well as on the highway. Less than one per cent of all injury-producing accidents involve fire or submersion to any degree. Contrary to widely held beliefs, seat belts greatly improve your chances of surviving even such an accident. A seat belt can be unfastened in an instant with one hand. Your seat belt can increase your chances of remaining conscious, so you can get clear of a submerged or burning car. -./- - AN IBEW SAFETY REMINDER FOR OUR MEMBERS
