Transcript September 1 972 BROADSIDE Page 9 HOW DOES YOUR COMPANY RATE? The EEO task force is concerned that many local employers have not complied with Revised Order Number 4 and, as a result, many Houston women still suffer sex discrimination in employment. For those not familiar with this legislation, Order 4 is an executive order requiring federal contractors to take affirmative action to better the status of female employees. This applies to any federal contractor (except those in the construction industry) having job categories in which women are not employed in proportion to their presence in the labor force. (Women are said to be 32.2 percent of the work force in Harris County.) Each affected company must file an Affirmative Action Plan (AAP) with the federal department holding its contracts. For example, the Departments of Defense, Treasury or HEW. The AAP must be made available to employees and company plans for equal opportunity must be widely publicized. If your employer is not taking adequate affirmative action, it could be for any of several reasons. The company management (1) is prejudiced against working women, (2) does not care, (3) thinks the government does not care, or (4) supposes no one will notice. The EEO task force does notice, however, and plans to contact those companies that have been remiss. In most cases a letter stating that NOW is aware of certain violations may bring a company into compliance without filing complaints with the government. If you work for a federal contractor, the EEO task force needs to know the name of your employer. If you are not certain whether your employer is a federal contractor or not, please complete the form anyway. (Most large employers do have federal contracts.) Answer all appropriate statements. The EEO task force will never release the source of its data. The task force will accept anonymous data although it may not be used. Send your completed form to NOW, P. 0. Box 58202, Houston, Texas 77058 or give it to Parrish Hirasaki, Ann McClung or any member of the EEO task force. KPFT Initiates Women's Programing KPFT, Houston's Pacifica affiliate, now has two locally produced programs by, for and about women. NeWomenNews is currently being aired every Friday from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. The program concentrates on news stories concerning women. One of the regular features of the show is a calendar of Houston area feminist meetings and other events of interest to women. This program is produced entirely by volunteers and anyone interested in helping should contact Marie Blazek at KPFT. The Women's Forum, produced by Pat Dowell and Ruth Mil burn, is a listener participation discussion on women's issues. Ruth and Pat introduce each topic by a discussion based on their own research or an interview with a local expert. Listeners are invited to call in with questions or comments. The Women's Forum is presented the first and third Mondays of each month from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. KPFT is located at 90.0 on the FM dial. EMPLOYER:. IS EMPLOYER A FEDERAL CONTRACTOR?
