Conn, Harry
July 1952
New Republic;7/28/52, Vol. 127 Issue 4, p8
The article discusses steel workers' strike over the issue of price of steel in the U.S. A settlement can be expected any moment of time after the government's assurance of price increase. The issue revolves round the wages and prices but much confusion in the steel settlement surrounds the union-shop issue. President Harry S. Truman steadfastly supported the group opposing price increases and thus politicalization of the issue has worsened it. After the months of overpowering pressures on the stabilization agencies to accede to industry demands, the government seems to bow.
