HERZOG MAKES GOOD OFFER
AND SETTLES STRIKE
The Herzog strike was settled yes
terday as quickly as it was started.
Just when the weight of organized
labor was beginning to be felt, Her

and the girls accepted.
This morning the young strikers
went back to work under different
conditions from those which they re
fused to endure last week.
A 10 per cent increase for all gar
ment workers who are making less
than $8.50 a week with a reduction
of the working week from 54 to 50
hours; installation of grievance and
wage committees to settle future dis
putes; agreement to a preferential
union shop and the abolition of the
fining system were the terms accept
ed by the strikers.
