On behalf of the California Labor Federation, AFL-CIO, I am writing to clarify the state AFL-CIO position on recent workers' compensation legislation that was the subject of Harry Bernstein's Labor column, "Little Compensation in Capitol Fight" (July 23). Our workers' compensation struggle before the state Legislature during the closing days of the recent budget crisis did not involve demands for increases in compensation benefits. It was centered on defeat of the massive take-aways proposed by the Wilson Administration and the employer-insurance community.

Carrying out a warning issued almost two years ago, Gov. George Deukmejian said Saturday that he will take to the voters his embattled proposal to make prison inmates help pay for their upkeep by working. Frustrated by the successes of organized labor to block his plan in the Democratic-dominated Legislature, the Republican governor said he will propose an initiative for the November ballot next year and lead the campaign to approve it.

The signatures were collected by the Coalition to Restore Safety at Work.

Pete Wilson declared his opposition Friday to demands from organized labor to raise the California minimum wage above $4.25 an hour, saying any increase would harm the people it is meant to help most: minorities, youngsters and first-time job-seekers. The Republican governor detailed his opposition at a press conference where he also announced the appointment of former state labor commissioner Lloyd Aubry, 40, as his director of industrial relations.
