Download PDF for this date

The strike in the Warsaw needle industry, which lasted several months and led to street fights between the Bundists and the Reds, was concluded today.

An agreement was reached by compromise. The workers gained an increase in wages of fifteen per cent. They will not be paid for the strike period. The majority of the employers and employes in the industry are Jews.
