Workers leader Cesar Chavez picked up a picket
sign and marched with striking employees at
the downtown Southwestern Bell Telephone Co.
headquarters in San Antonio.
The Communications Workers of America
began striking American Telephone & Telegraph
six days ago when contract talks between the
two groups broke down.
Chavez was in town Tuesday for the National
Hispanic Voter Registration campaign and took
time out to join the picketers. "This is a just
strike because the issue of job security is im-
portant to every working person.” he said.

director of the Internal Revenue Service hos-

lice arrested him and the incident ended without
The IRS official, Howard Longley, was taken
hostage about 10:45 a.m. when the gunman
walked into the federal building and said he
