MEMORANDUM
TO: Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr.

FROM: Carl T. Sutherland

I have reviewed the current status of registers containing the
names of Negroes among the top three. I find that:

The list for Equipment Operator I, which is headed by
the name of a Negro who was referred May 10, 1967, but
was not employed, still is headed by the name of the
same Negro but that he waived certification with the
Construction Department and is waiting for a vacancy
in the Water Department.

The Semi-Skilled Worker list on which the three top
applicants were Negroes as of May 16 now has five
whites at the top of the list.

The promotional list for Equipment Operator I in the
Construction Department on May 16 had two qualified
applicants, both Negroes. One has been promoted and
the other is awaiting a vacancy.

The promotional list for Equipment Operator II in the
Construction Department still has two Negroes who have
waived certification for existing vacancies. They are
waiting for vacancies in their present locations as
they do not wish to transfer to locations where the
present vacancies exist.
Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. -2= May 31, 1967

The promotional list for Laborer II in the Construction
Department now has eight Negro eligibles. There are
twelve vacancies. I have acquainted Mr. Nixon with this
situation, and he is sending Mr. Sojka to see me about
it. Mr. Nixon states that he will take necessary action
to see that there is no discrimination.

The promotional list for Semi-Skilled Worker in the
Water Department which had three Negro eligibles as of
May 16 is exhausted. The three have been promoted.

The list for Sewer Serviceman II (Construction) which
had three Negroes at the top as of May 16 is exhausted.
These three and one additional Negro have been promoted
since that time.

The three Negroes listed at the top of the Waste Collection
Driver promotional list in the Sanitary Department and the
three Negroes listed at the top of the Waste Collector II
list (Sanitary) have been assigned to the extra board for
the higher classes,and work in the higher classes in the
absence of the regular employees. They will be assigned
to permanent position numbers as soon as vacancies occur.

My placement office tells me that we are not meeting the resis-—
tance on the appointment and promotion of qualified Negroes that
we once met, They state that the situation has improved greatly

in recent months.
