Union Labor in Chicago. . ....
Tomorrow's meeting of the Chicago Federation of Labor wiU-gSBably,
be one of the most important meetings that body ever held.
From many unions from alT over. Chicago delegates will come to repre
sent the, sentiment of those unions against the deal .between Hearst and
Simon O'Donnell, president of the Chicago Building Trades Council, to get
out an alleged trades union edition of the Chicago Examiner.
Aside from a few close supporters of O'Donnell, the sentiment of or
ganized labor in Chicago is practically unanimous against a trades union
edition of a newspaper that is on the unfair list of the Chicago Federation
of Labor and is barred from using the union label of the Chicago Allied
Printing Trades Council. '

Hearst-O'Donnell deal, the feeling is strongest among the real union men
in the unions affiliated with the Building Trades Council, because of the
non-union position they are put In by the action of theto council president.

had turned down all efforts of President John Fitzpatrick to bring about
The Hearst papers started the lockout on May 1, 1912, by locking out
their union prjessmen, members of Pressmen's Union No. 7, and filling their
places with scabs.
