Sprouse visits Glenville James M. Sprouse, Democratic candidate for governor, recently issued his position paper on public employee organizations and said "public employees, as citizens, should have equal rights while not disrupting public service." "I do not nor have I ever favored the right of public employees to strike nor do I take the position on whether they should join an employee group." he stated. "This is a right which they already possess and is a personal decision for each of them. I do favor the right of public employees to collectively bargain." Sprouse said the basic issue is not the right of public employees to strike. Rather. it is "that public employees have all too frequently been treated as second class citizens. This is not to say they seek or should receive the same pay as employees in private industry, but they should be paid justly and serve under just conditions." He continued, "Professions vary but a profession so intricate as education, for example, should have available the input and expertise of all its members. This can be done as members of the West Virginia Education Assn. or some other group. Similarly, other public employees can collectively present their thoughts, grievances and demands through any type of organization or group, union or otherwise. This is not to say that they Should belong to such a group, only that they have the right to belong and the right to be represented collective- ly." He recommended that any dispute should not be permitted to be resolved by strike or work stoppage but submitted to binding arbitration of an impartial panel, the findings of which would then be taken to the legislature or governing body, as appropriate. McCuskey comments on PSC bill Sprouse said he sees two areas to be utilized to lower the demand for collective bargaining among public employees. The first is the improve- ment of West Virginia personnel procedures and practices, along with adequate salaries. The second is an increased responsiveness and sensiti- vity to employee problems on the part of public employers. "The tools to resolve most public employee problems," he said, "are a mediation service that earns the confidence of both parties, a factfinding procedure available to the parties, provision for binding arbitra- tion by an impartial panel, a neutral board to administer these tools with the flexibility to fit them to each circumstance, and reasonable legisla- tion prohibiting strikes." "There have been numerous situatiorls in West Virginia recently where conditions affecting some public employees became intolerable. This should be remedied with understan- ding of the problems and advanced planning rather than in the heat of confrontation," he stated. Sprouse recently was in Glenville where he spent the day talking with community leaders and citizens. He also visited the pipe plant and talked a combined group of political science classes at Glenville State College. GILMER AUCTION Top Towe We sell anti( used mer C ,onsignments 5:30 p.m. on SALES START ROBERT J. A, A Public Service Commission bill passed the legislature which Delegate McCuskey {R-Harrison) feels will be beneficial to all. "This bill is no great cure for high utility rates. They just are not going to drop tomorrow. However. this bill provides preventive measures which should help alleviate many deficiencies which now exist in our fuel companies today," McCuskey commented. "Increasing costs of fuel and power plant construction, inefficient management of many utility compa- nies, and improper oversight by the West Virginia Public Service Commis- sion are just a few of the many complicated reasons for high utility rates." McCuskey explained. "The Public Service Commission has been too lax in many areas." he added. The P.S.C. bill contains three main points. One is a 3% interest penalty on rates put into effect under bend. Another would outlaw rate increases that are placed on top of each other when one is still pending in court. The last feature would create an office of public counsel to represent consumers at rate increase hearings. A bill before the Senate. which if passed, would lower the tax to in-state power users and raise the tax for out-of-state users would also benefit West Virginia power consumers. McCuskey concluded, "I regret that the House did not see fit to adopt two amendments to the P.S.C. bill which would have encouraged energy conservation and lowered residential rates. Peak load pricing and lifeline rates are both methods which, in my opinion, would stabilize or reduce utility rates."
