BERRY TO MORRISON j
August 18, 1913. 1
..Mr. Frank Morrison, Secretary A- F. of L., 801 G. St. N. W., Washing
ton, D. C:
Dear Sir and Brother Attached hereto you will find copy of com
munication which I today addressed to John R. Alpine, seventh vice-president
of the American Federation of Labor.
This communication carries with it certain specific charges borne out
by copies of telegrams, etc., and setting forth in full the attitude of Mr.
Alpine in respect to the very important matter having to do with the general
welfare of the International Printing Pressmen and Assistants' Union, as
well as the printing trades unions in general.
I ask that this matter be taken up by the executive council and an im
mediate investigation made and action taken which will properly rebuke
Mr. Alpine for his position in respect to an affiliated union with the A. F. of
L. and relieve him, if the charges I made are found true, of his further
service as the vice-president of the American Federation of Labor.
, This is a mattr of far reaching importance in which the well being of
the entire labor movement of this country is, to a very marked degree, ef
fected. Prompt, positive and decisive action is therefore required and de
manded. Fraternally yours,
George L. Berry, President.
