Hormel Local Told to End Strike

United Press International

Striking workers at the Austin, Minn., Hormel meatpacking plant were ordered by leaders of their parent union today to abandon their bitter, violent 7-month-old strike and offer to return to work.

The executive committee of the United Food and Commercial Workers said in its order that "progress toward a contract is nonexistent." But the head of the local said that if the international is proposing that he "negotiate away" strikers's jobs as part of a settlement, "they're going to find that it's a mistake."
