Dunlop to Review Coal Negotiations
John T. Dunlop, associate professor of Economics, who served on the President's Board of Inquiry during the coal strike, will address the Free Enterprise Society tonight on the miners' dispute. He will speak at 8 p.m. in the Kirkland House Junior Common Room.
Dunlop will present his view of the recent negotiations which settled the eight-month long dispute. He is also expected to discuss the fundamental economic problems of the industry.
Appointed in February
When Dunlop returned from Washington ten days ago, he said that it was difficult to determine who got the better of the bargaining, the operators or the strikers. The miners received an average raise of $1.40, higher than most industries, but the increase will not be effective until next year.
President Truman appointed Dunlop to the three-man fact finding board on February 6, at the start of the coal strike. The other members of the board vere Chairman David L. Cole '21 and W. Willard Wirtz LL.B. '37.
