OF THE UNITED PRESS v THE DAY BOOK 500 S. PEORIA ST. 3398 TEL. MONROE 353 VoL 1, No. 215 Chicago, Tuesday, June 4, 1912 One Cent TEAMSTERS' STRIKE IS PRACTICALLY CERTAIN To Come Saturday Unless Trou ble .of Freight Handlers ... Is Settled. A strike of union teamsters in Chicago, in sympathy with strik ing freight handlers, is a certainty unless the differences between the freight handlers and the railroads are settled before the end of the week. This was definitely decided upon yesterday at a conference between officers of the freight handlers and teamsters, and at a mass meeting of the teamsters last night the-attitude of their of ficers was approved. Power to call a strike now lies in the hands of vthe teamsters' officials. This action, which will par alyze the moving of freight from local warehouses, has been-decid-ed upon only after every effort has been made by the -freight .handlers to settle the strike through arbitration. Thinking that the trouble would be adjusted, the teamsters have o fsar averted an open breach. Now, however, fhey are determined to strike,. refusing to handle good trucks by non-union freight handlers. -- A definite time for the suspen sion of work has not yet beende cided upon, but it was said at the offices of the freight handlers' union this afternoon that the men would be out by Saturday unless the railroads came to time. There is little likelihood of a settlement. On two previous oc casions President Garnett of the General Managers' association, declared there was nothing to ar bitrate, as the roads were not feel-' ing -the effect of the strike, and , would refuse to treat with an or-, ganization that had gone on strike. TAILORS WALK OUT IN SYMPATHY STRIKE. Cutters and Trimmers Are Better Fortified Now Than in 1911. One hundred tailors, among them thirty women, .struck yes terday afternoon in ashop of B. Kuppenheimer & Co., 21st street and Blue Island avenue, in sym pathy with striking cutters and trimmers. The tailors also declared they had their, own wrongs to redress.
