THE CONNECTICUT LABOR PRES3
ANSONIA STRIKE Will BE EXTENDED TO OTHER PLANTS Unless Brass Co. Acts Soon Waterhury and Torrington Will Go Out. Ansonia, April 2. Unless overture's toward a settlement of the strike of the 4,000 employes of the American Brass Company shops are made within a few days, the strike will be extended to the company's plants in Waterbury and Torrington next week it was decided this week at a mass meeting of the workers. The extension of the strike . to the other towns was prevented solely through the efforts of the officers-of th Connecticut and American Fed eration of Labor, who are here endeav oring to organize the men and prevent any recurrence of the troubles that en sued in previous strikes because the men were unorganized. Unless the company makes some effort to end the trouble here now, the Workers are de termined to call out the men in the other shops and the Federation officers will be unable to prevent it. The strike is at a deadlock now, the company making no effort to even see the men or make a "proposition and the men on their part feeling that they have made all the overtures necessary, and ' that it is now up to the company to do something toward "bringing about a settlement. The men are standing-firm- ly, to date,, not a deflection in the .ranks being noted or - even, suggested- " Mass meetings , are .being held daily and ad dressed in several languages so that the men are being kept informed as to the progress, or rather non-progress, of, the affair.

F. of L. at the Ansonia Opera House and meetings are being held there daily at which the organization of.' the workers into a local of the Federal Workers v " Union is being peff ectedV; Already Several hundred have become members ) and others are joining rapidly. At a mass meeting held Wednesday morning, attended by about 1,000 of the workers, the organization benefits were pointed out by Mr. Ornburn, Joseph Tone, and E. C Hotchkiss, organizers of the Machinists Union ; Alexander Marx of New York, general organizer of the American Federation -of Labor, and Alfred Cialona. - Organizer Marx 'addressed . the men in . Polish, Russian and English, while Mr. . Cialone spoke to them in Italian. Through other in terpreters in the . other languages spoken by the men on strike, the situa tion was placed before them and hun- dreds made application to affiliate with the new union. ; . An article relating to the strike, pub lished in tht Waterbury Herald of Sun day last, declared . that .the efforts of i . Mr. Ornburn and the "other Organized Labor men were "not appreciated" and were in direct opposition to the policy of President Gompers, inasmuch as Mr. Ornburn was declaring the Federation of Labor as opposed to strikes and was not interested any how in unskilled la bor and. was directing efforts to break up organizations of unskilled laborers who were, not affiliated with, the Fed " ; erations. V ' - - - In reply to this Mr. Ornburn stated - that he is 'in hearty accord with the Gompers policy in upholding the right to strike and that what he said about strikes -4s that as i well known, the , Federation of. Labor? is opposed to a strike unless as a lastresortr- His re . marks tvere -deliberately twisted to suit the purposes of those who did the dis torting, Mr. Ornburn says, and is sim ply an . effort, to create dissension with . the 'new-, organization .. , : t ' As to not caring for unskilled labor Mr. Ornburn said that is also untrue as is evident. Instead of trying to break J up the Waterbury Workers Union, as charged in the Herald article, Mr. Orn burn says it -is. just the other ' way -around and that the Waterbury Work ers are the . ones trying' to disrupt Federation ( organizations. Unorganized strikes, such as the present one, are hot counseled, he said, because through lack of .organization there can be no head, no arrangement ' for paying strike bene- fits to carry on the strike and a general - mixup. For this reason he and the other Federation- men are doing their best to get the- men together into one organization so that concerted and official action can be .taken when the time comes to take it.
