CF. L. LEADERAVOR STRIKE
John Pitzpatrick ana B. N. Nock
les, president and secretary of the
Chicago Federatioajoi' Labor, jumped
into the garment strike with both
feet today, and in favor of the strik
ing members of the Amalgamated
Clothing Workers, who are affiliated
with neither the C. P. of L. or the
A. F. of L.
They made their stand known in a
scorching letter to Mayor Thompson,
in which they asked pertinent ques
tions as to why the city administra
tion was so partial to the employers
and so set against a living wage for
They emphasized the fact the
strikers not being affiliated with the
labor movement had nothing to do
with the police allowing sluggers to
operate, as they are doing now.
The letter closes with this:
"The clothing manufacturers have
refused to arbitrate. For this they
have been condemned by the press,
fhe pulpit and all right-thinking men
and women. Such a stand is con
trary to public policy. Why does the
city administration support them in
that stand? Why does it secure them
police protection at the expense of
law abiding citizens? The answer
rests with you. The labor move
ment of this city will hold you re
sponsible for that answer."
