President Berry Of Local Union
Says Meeting Today Is
Regular Event
The report current yesterday that
the local bartenders were planning
a strike tomorrow, was denied last
night zy Richard P. Berry, president
of the Cape Girardeau Union.
"That report, I am told, was given
out by a former bartender who wish
es to cause trouble between the bar
tenders and the saloon owners," said
Mr. Berry last night.
"There is no strike contemplated.
The meeting is a regur event with
us. We will, however, take up the
salary question. The matter has been
discussed heretofore, but no mention
was made of a strike. We have dis
cussed it with the saloon owners, and
all have agreed to increase their em
ployes salary from $60 per month to
$18 a week.
"We will definitely decide on this
sca;e of wages at the meeting Sun
day. But there wil lbe no strike. The
matter is approved by the saloon ow
ners. The increase was made neces
sary by the present high cost of liv
ing. But in justice to the saloon owners,
I might say that while $15 a week has
been the scale of wages in the Cape,
most all of the saloon owners have
been paying $17 or more. The in
crease will about standardize the
wages here. In other words, fcll bar
tenders will receive the same pay."
