Last Chance For Milk Pact Near
Last hope of averting a milk drivers' strike were pinned today on a meeting Tuesday between officials of the Milk Drivers and Dairy Workers Local, (AFL), milk dealers and the U.S. Conciliation Service in Hotel Rochester.

In a strike vote cast last night in Highland Hall, more than 400 union members voted 439 to 3 to suspend any further negotiations with the dealer, after Tuesday's session.

A strike by the drivers union would leave the City of Rochester without a milk supply. The Teamsters Union, which hauls milk into the city, would be bound not to cross a picket line.

The union is seeking a $15 a week raise for wholesale drivers and an 18 per cent increase for inside workers. The home delivery drivers also seek a new base pay of $25 a week and an 8 per cent commission plan in place of the $39 weekly base pay and 2 per cent commission in the expiring contract.

The present contract between dealers and the union expired on Mar. 31, but was extended until Apr. 15, pending negotiations.
