HARDWOOD FINISHERS WIN A
Union labor won still another vic
tory last night when the Millworkers'
Employers' ass'n accepted the agree
ment demanded five months ago by
Hardwood finishers' Local No. 430.
It was a complete victory for the
hardwood finishers. They get a raise
of from 35 to 41 cents an hour just
what they demanded and everything
else they asked for.
"We didn't compromise a single
point," said R. C. Stuart, business
agent who signed for the finishers.
"The best part of it all is thatall
through the strike the number of our
men at work was about normal, be
cause 51 independent contractors
signed our agreement as soon as the
strike was called.
"You can bet the agreement we
signed bears no resemblance to ihe
Simon O'Donnell uniform agreement
We would sooner have accepted a re
duction in wages, had it been necesr
sary, than to have signed such an
abominable, union-wrecking agree
ment." The hardwood finishers new agree
ment becomes effective next Tuesday.
All affected are "inside" workers'.
There are 450 members of Local 430.
