(Studio) In Boston, longshoremen and Coast Guard have confrontation re: unloading of fish from USSR ships.
REPORTER: Harry Reasoner

(Boston, Massachusetts) Local union appeals to Representative Tip O'Neill who intervenes, because dock workers not hired to unload "Taras Shevchenko." Many dock workers unemployed and Coast Guard had been unloading ship. Coast Guard offers work to longshoremen, who believe they're to unload rest of "Taras Shevchenko," which could mean back pay for hrs. worked by Coast Guard. Instead, they're assigned to unload "Anatanas Snechkus" and many walk off job. [Longshoreman John MARTIN - cites longshoremen's complaint.] Unloading to be finished tonight; if court action to come against either, will probably be Friday
REPORTER: Bill Stewart
