CONTRACTORS REJECT PEACE
PROPOSALS OF MEN
Carpenters yesterday made the
Contractors a definite offer to arbi
trate their differences. The offer
was ignored, which puts responsibil
ity for continuation of the strike
upon the shoulders of the contract
ors. The carpenters handed the con
tractors a statement declaring that
the mediation meetings had revealed
the principal differences as follows:
One permitting the use of any man- 1
ufactured material on Chicago build
ings regardless of the fact "that it
might be shipped in here from pauper-wage
or child-labor factories.
Another refering to the demand
for a 5-cent increase in wages.
Another refering to the date of ter
mination of the agreement.
It replying to the first-mentioned
difference the contractors are mak
ing a play of the federal indictment
this week of contractors and keep
ing " :ab materials out of Chicago. A
5-ccnt wage increase is denied. The
contractors insist that the new agree
ment shall end May 31 instead of
In past agreements have always
ended April 15. The contractors
want this date changed till May 31,
for the later date is just at the be
ginning of the dull season when, car
penters would be at a disadvantage if
they ever wished to strike.
