Market Poultry Strike Settled in Brooklyn

A settlement of one of two strikes being waged by Brooklyn poultry slaughterers was announced last night by David Diamondstone, secretary of Chicken Drivers Union Local 167.

The settlement was reached between the employers and employes of the Public Live Poultry Market, 534 Sixty-third street, with all workers reported “back at their work and completely satisfied.”

The second strike, still in controversy, according to Diamondstone, is taking place at the Kings Live Poultry Market, 910 Quentin road.

These two strikes, said to be caused by lockouts, had been announced Tuesday by the union secretary. At the same time he had reported that representatives of four wholesale and retail local unions had reached an agreement to cooperate in the present, or any future, poultry slaughterers strife.

Partners to this agreement were the Hebrew Butchers Union Local 234, Chicken Drivers Local 167, Salesmen and Poultry Workers Local 662, and Shochtim Workers Local 440.

“While the executives and members of our local, and the other cooperating locals to our pact, are satisfied with the settlement of this particular Brooklyn strike,” Diamondstone said last night, “the entire industry still awaits Judge Rosalsky’s decision, which I understand is to be made this coming Monday.”
