CLOTHING WORKERS ORGANIZE
The campaign to organize the un
organized workers in the clothing
trades in Chicago is under way.
Committees of District Council No. 6

union will be known in the future as
the Amalgamated Clothing Workers'
Union of America. ,

ordinance passed by the city council
granting them the right to build a
new freight yard on the south side,
statements were given out by the
Union Terminal Co. that the passage

which delayed the terminal and that
20,000 men would be placed at work
immediately after its passage.
The ordinance was passed amid
much acclamation and yesterday two
gangs, of 100 men each, started to
work, one wrecking an old building,
the other digging the foundations of
some new freighthouses.
In an interview given out yesterday
by one of the officials of the New
Union Station Co., it was said that
2,000 men may be employed by the
middle of next summer and that the
payroll wouw be steadily increased
