They especially stressed that we
had union seniority as against their
shop seniority. They convinced, it
seems, the majority of employees,
that if the Brotherhood should win
the election that employees woUl9
be discharged at the demand of the
Brotherhood and that members
from various local unions outside
of New Castle would go in and,
take over their respective jobs.
They had a big party last Sat
urday night with the usual free
drinks and eats and a $200 dbor
prize to attract these people to the
meeting. This enabled the C. I. O.
spokesmen to continue their re
peated lies and misstatements*^?-'
garding the National Brotherhood
Operative Potters. A rumor was
afloat to^the effect that the C. I. O.'
did not provide the $200 for the
door prize that a party outside of
any labor organization furnished
^this money, for what purpose, rep
resentative Neff of the G. I. O.
could best explain.
Brotherhood representatives
Slaven, Chadwick and Turner spent
much of their time during recent
months in advancing the cause of
the Brotherhood among these work
ers. Members of Local Union No.
133 contributed much towards the
fine showing the Brotherhood made
in thfe election. A strange anomaly
in connection with the campaign’to
win the election, the C. I. O. re
peatedly stressed the necessity of
a wage increase for the Shenango
workers. Then came the following
in one of their pamphlets: “Who
Said Ten Per Cent? Certain
stooges of the N. B. of O. P. claim
they will get you a ten percent
wage raise if you vote N. B. of
O. P. They know that the N. B. of
O. P. shops that have granted ten
percent are working reduced crews

know that if it were possible to

has held only two meetings during
the summer months and these ses

seek cooler places than their local
union meeting hall.
As a result, the delegates to the
convention did not make their re
port until our last meeting. After
hearing the report of each day’s
proceedings, a notion was made
and passed without a dissenting
vote, upholding the action taken by
the delegates on all resolutions
and their decision as well on the
