Lehman Sees New Peace Era in Clothing Industry

Download PDF for this date

Less strikes, more arbitration in disputes between employer and employee in the cloak and suit industry, setting an example to be followed by other trades, was predicted by Lieutenant-Governor Herbert H. Lehman.

Speaking at a luncheon Wednesday at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, given in honor of Raymond V. Ingersoll, Impartial Chairman, by the four factors in the cloak and suit industry, the first of its kind to be attended by representatives of the unions and the three employers’ groups, the Lieutenant Governor, who was largely instrumental in settling the recent strike in the industry, forecast the beginning of a new era of sympathy and understanding, and the elimination of sweat shop conditions.

Lieutenant Governor Lehman lauded the services to the industry of Mr. Ingersoll, declaring the industry fortunate in having a man of his tact, imagination and vision as its impartial chairman.

Mr. Ingersoll sailed last night for Paris, whence he will go to Geneva as a representative of the Foyer du Soldat.
