' NO STRIKE IN UNION CLOAK AND
SUIT MAKERS, BOSSES CLAIM
There is no strike on among the
union cloak and suit makers in the
ladies' garment trade, arid the North
West' Ladies' Garment Mfrs. ass'n
asks that it be made clear to prevent
trouble with their men. Erroneous
statements in the trust press have

publicity and say that a garment
strike is on. The reading public pre
sumes that every garment trade is
affected by it. This is a very serious
matter for the cloak and suit in
dustry, which has no trouble at all."
