16,000 dARltfffeRS' YHREATEll
TO STRIKE APRIL 15
Unless the contractors come to
terms 16,000 carpenters will go on
strike April 15. If they do this will
swell the total of building trades
strikers to 35,000 unless the differ
ences of the other unions and the
contractors are settled meanwhile.
The protest of the carpenters is not
so much against the universal agree
ment as it is against the present wage
scale. They ask an immediate in
crease to be followed by increases' of
2y cents an hour in each of the next
two years. This the contractors are
unwilling to grant
Though the proposed universal
agreement has not been fought by
the carpenters as a unit so far, at
the same time another agreement has
been drawn which contractors have
been asked to sign. This agreement
is a modification of the proposed uni
versal agreement and is drawn along
the lines of the agreement under
which the carpenters are now work
ing, which, though similar in many
ways to the universal agreement,
permits greater liberty and indepen
dence for the working men.
"We will strike if we don't get our
raise," was the terse statement given
at headquarters of Chicago District
Council of Carpenters.
