Strike Threats Grow
Remote With 65 Per
Cent Back At Work
There are abput 2,000 em
ployees back to work in local
cotton mills at the end of the
first full week of operation
since the strike.
Ihis is some 65 per cent
of the total number that was
employed when the strike
was called by the United Tex
tile Workers. At the time
there were about 3,000 on
the payrolls of local cotton
mills
Those back at work in round
numbers are:
Roanoke Mil^s Company 1,000
Rosemary Manufacturing Co. 600
Patterson Mills Company 400
The mills are running on one
lull shift, cutting down from two
shifts due to lack of orders and
cancellations of orders which
came during the strike period.
Special crews are working on
sample goods in order to make
up for time lost by salesmen who
have not been able to get the
new line of samples, while com
peting mills were running during
the strike.
Rosemary Mfg., Co. opened
with about three hundred work

tion have increased the number
to double that amount. Roanoke
and Patterson opened a week ago
with about 1,000, had 1,200 work
ing Monday of this week and
1,400 today.
All charges of discrimination
against union members of the
UTW for last week were dropp

with a clean slate.
However, yesterday, a Wash
ington report says that a deleg
ation from Roanoke Mills Co.,
headed by Dooley and Strickland,
labor organizers, presented 55
complaints of discrimination for
this week. The complaints were
made before the Labor Relations
Board. How many of these alleged
discriminations were from Roan

were not divulged.
UTW delegations which called
on the mill officials this week
were told that workers were beAg
