BUILDING INDUSTRY HAMPERED
BY BRICKMAKERS' STRIKE
About 100,000 building trades
workers are off the job in Chicago
because they have no . brick with
which to erect brick buildings.
The brickmakers' strike has tied
up the supply. A few teamsters tried
to haul non-union bricks yesterday,
but when pickets from the brickmak
ers' union explained to the teamsters
what was what' the teamsters quit
hauling. This was at Evanston yards.
The Building Trades' Council will
tonight elect a committee to bring
arbitration. A settlement is expected
in a day or two.
Most of the tie-up is on flat and
apartment buildings on the North
Side. The brickmakers' organization
alone has 6,000 idle men through the
strike, with only about 600 employed
The brickmakers' union demands
higher wages. Five cents an hour
more for common laborers and 2
cents per 100 for brick tossers is the
scale called for. If arbitration be
f ins it is believed they would compro
mise on this.
Some' sort of wage raise' will have
to come, however, or the city of Chi
cago will get no bricks with which
to make brick buildings.
