United Parcel Service of America's pilots rejected the company's contract offer Wednesday, but both sides agreed no strike would be called this year, sparing consumers major holiday delivery tie-ups. "We don't want to be known as the Grinch that stole Christmas," said Capt. Bob Miller, president of the Independent Pilots Assn. The vote adds to concerns at UPS, which is still trying to win back customers after a 16-day strike in August by drivers belonging to the Teamsters union.

Four organizers for the fledgling United Auto Workers union walked atop an overpass that led into the Ford Motor Co.'s massive River Rouge auto plant on the outskirts of Detroit. The UAW activists, including 30-year-old Walter P. Reuther, had arrived on that day in May 1937 to oversee the leaflet effort, hoping to persuade Ford's 80,000 Rouge workers to join the growing union. The organizers were emboldened by the great sit-down strikes earlier that year in Flint, Mich.

It's time to think about getting and giving--and wrapping and packing and sending; in other words, how to send that bathrobe to Aunt Louise in Minneapolis and the stuffed dinosaur to young Tommy in Pittsburgh.
