AGREEMENT ENDS MAY 1
llosses Say Compromise of ijvi.7." Was
Offered No Important Work 1
A score of journeymen plumbers
went on strike in Rock Island today
for an increase in wages. All six shops
whose owners are members of the , Mas
ter Plumbers association ar affocted.
As it, happens there is very little work
under way in the city now and so no
important .construct ion is halted.
The annual agreement of the plumb
ers expires May 1. Some time ago the
men, who have been getting $:5.50 for
5 hours' work, presented a demand for
$1. One of the members of the Mas
ter .Plumbers' association today stated
that .the- bosses refused to give the
sum asked, hut offered to compromise
at $3.75. The men declined to take
less than t, and the strike followed.
The shops affected are Allen, Myers
6 Co., Cbannon & Dufva, Ward & Mc
Mahon, E. E. Lamp, George W. Red
dig, and Arthur McNeil.
iy Tent Arc Sever.
The men maintain that they are re
quired to pass a more severe examina
tion in Rock Island to secure a license
than in any other city in this part of
the country, and they say that their
pay. $3.50 a day, is not as large as is
paid in other cities where the tests are
less severe. One of the men this
morning, speaking of the strike, said;
"We believe we are fully entitled to
the increase asked, and while we do
not expect to secure onr point at once,
we think we will be successful. We
are well organized, and are in a posi
tion to wait."
