Murray Sets Responsibility for Strikes Directly Upon Industry; Ask U.N. Investigation in Greece

Murray Appeals to Industry

PITTSBURGH, December 16--Philip Murray said today, "It is strictly up to the industrialists" to "save the nation from crippling strikes."

Speaking in his dual role as head of the CIO and the 850,000 United Steel Workers after a clearing house conference with Albert Fitzgerald, president of the 600,000 United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers and Walter Reuther, boss of 900,000 United Auto Workers, Murray said:

"It is strictly up to the industrialists to arise to the economic conditions to save the nation from crippling strikes. These three organizations with other CIO unions have a prime interest in collective bargaining that will lead to peaceful solution of the nation's economic ills.
