Marvin Mandel, Governor                        1843

No. 40
(House Joint Resolution 63)

House Joint Resolution requesting Western Union to cease in its
attempts to close the Western Union office in Aberdeen, Maryland,
and supplant it with substitute service.

Whereas, Western Union is a public utility and during the past
year received an approximate 35% increase from the Public Service
Commission and immediately thereafter started procedures to close
its offices in Aberdeen, Easton, Salisbury, Cumberland, Hagerstown,
and Frederick; and

Whereas, These offices will be supplanted with some type of agency
service, but in view of the large rate increase, this action by the
Company does not improve the service afforded the general public;

Whereas, The Western Union office in Aberdeen is the only
company-maintained office in Harford, Cecil and Baltimore coun-
ties and customers who do not wish to use agency-operated offices
for personal reasons should not be made to drive from Aberdeen to
Baltimore in order to use a regular Western Union office; now, there-
fore, be it

Resolved by the General Assembly of Maryland, That Western
Union seriously consider leaving its office in Aberdeen, Maryland,
open as is to the general public; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this Resolution be sent to Mr. Vaeth,
Operations Manager of Western Union.

Approved May 6, 1971.

No. 41
(House Joint Resolution 76)

House Joint Resolution urging the establishment of a State Mediation
Board and requesting the Governor to appoint a commission to
study the creation of such a Board.

Whereas, Labor disputes, both public and private, are frequently
disruptive of the citizenry's enjoyment of life; and

Whereas, Strikes work hardships on the people of this State by
reducing the available finances of strikers and by interfering with
services or products which others would normally use; and

Whereas, The State should use a due diligence to help avoid labor
disputes and strikes; and
