DYE WORKERS ON STRIKE FOR
There are 200 dye-house workers
on strike at the plants of the Chi
cago Consolidated Cleaners, 3517 W.
Madison; City Odorless Cleaners,
Lake and Sacramento blvd.; Fisher,
Kalb & Co., Madison and 43d; Orig
inal Archibald, 3513 W. Madison.
The workers, partly women, want
a 9-hour day, time and a half for
overtime, half a day off on Saturdays
during June, July and August, and
recognition of the union.
"In the busy season we work 15
hours a day or longer and with no
overtime pay," said W. J. Riordan.
"In the slack season we are laid off
or given two days a week work."
Riordan has approached the em
ployers six times seeking an agree
ment, but always has been turned
away. The strike was called April
14. There are 400 union dye-workers
still employed with fair firms.
The strike tied up the four plants
until today. Today a number of men
went back t6 work. The union men
make open accusation against mem
bers of Drivers' Local No. 712 of try
ing to break the dye-workers' strike.
They have taken the matter before
the Chicago Federation of Labor. The
dye-workers say the dye wagon driv
ers, all union men, are coaxing the
union strikers to return to work.
Fred Pockart, pres. of Dye House
Workers' Union No. 4790. and W. J.
Riordan, business agent, have both
been slugged since the strike started,
