Tales from the Morgue: STRIKE SHUTS DOWN MAGMA Each month the Superior Sun will reprint h story from 50 years ago. This monthfrom August 13, 1959 ...... The Magma Mine-Mill Council and Local 938 of.Superior, and 937 of San Manuel, called the first strike in the history of Magma Copper Co. in Arizona last Tuesday morning. An estimated 1100 men are involved in the strike action at Superior. According to Rodolfo Garcia, business agent at Local 938, picket lines were manned at the smelter gate, and at entrances of Shafts NO. 5 and 3 of the mine at 6 a.m. "We haven't set pickets at the railroad tracks because we don't want to interfere with public use of the hosPital," said Garcia. "Up to. this time, everything has been peaceful." Darrel Gardner, general manager of Magma, also'said that everything had been quiet so far. "We are sure the Mine-Mill Council is doing its bdst to prevent any incidents," said Gardner. Garcia said the union intended to continue the strike quietly, as long as the company lived up to the strike agreement, preventing use of any personnel for production, development or repair. A l~ast minute attempt by federal negotiator Steve Halligan, in Denver, to prevent the Magma strike was turned down by a special meeting of local union members Monday night, said Garcia. Halligan telegrammed Superior to ask for a delay until he could arrive, Thursday or Friday. Both the Superior and San Manuel locals voted to ignore the request on the grounds that Halligan,s visit was too late, Garcia said. Garcia denied rumors that experienced strikers bad been brought in from outside to spearhead the strike. Two meetings were held on ;l'uesday, between company and union officials, to reach an agreement on the list of men who will be allowed to continue to work. Garcia mentioned railroad personnel as some of those who will be allowed to work. The International Union of Mine, Mill and Smelter Workers won a National Labor Relations Board election in October Of 1957 to determine if the Magma operation at Superior would be unionized. Garcia is chairman of the Arizona Mine-Mill Council, which includes mining operations at Kennecott in Ray, AS & R in Hayden, Miami, Banner in Tucson, the two Magma operations in Superior and San Manuel, and the three Phelps-Dodge Operations at Bisbee, Morenci and Douglas. He said he was going to call a special council meeting in the next few days to check strike developments and negotiations throughout the state. "We are also going to send a delegation to the Phelps-Dodge Union Strike Strategy committee to see how the strike will be conducted there", he added. MAGMA PICKET LINE- Pickets from Local 938 of the Mine, Mill and Smelter Workers assembled in a light drizzle Tuesday morning, on Magma Avenue, just above the hospital. Union leaders reported enthusiastic support by the striking miners, who said theywere waiting at the union hall at 5 a.m. for placards. A last minute request by federal negotiators to delay the strike was refused. 2000 Ford Mustang Coupe 3.8L, Auto, Power Seat, Spoiler, 46, 999 miles 20 city/27 highway rated MPG " Was $7,900 2004 Mercury Grand Marquis LS 4.6L, Leather, Power Seats, 74,157 miles 17 ci~25 highway rated MPG Was $9,990 NOW $7,000 NOW $8,990 Stock #1 t050A 2005 Dodge Neon SXT 2.0L, Auto, Rear Spoiler, ONLY 26,902 miles 22 city/29 highway rated MPG $7,900 Stock #11304N Chevrolet Impala power Seat, Re~S~r, 77,438 miles 18 city/27 hig~rated MPG $8,250 Stock #11318A 2002 Lincoln Continental 4,66L, Leather, Power Seals, Moon Roof, 58,775 miles ~ 17 city/25 highway rated MPG Was $9;500 NOW $8,500 Stock #11148A 2001 Ford FI50 Super Crew Lariat 5.4L, 4wd, Leather, Towing Package, 96,256 miles WaS$13,990 N0W $12,990 Stock #l 1036"A l /cSpadden Ford.
