Expect Strike of 30,000 in Dress Trade

February 5, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Full authority to call a strike of 30,000 dress and waist makers was granted to a committee of seven at a meeting of the General Strike Committee of the Joint Board of the Dress and Waist Makers Unions.

The officers reported the break in the negotiations between the union and the employers and a debate on the question of calling a strike at once followed. The motion to call an immediate strike was defeated and it was decided to give the union representatives another opportunity to attempt a settlement.

If a strike is called it will probably not take place before Wednesday morning, Julius Hochman, general manager of the Joint Board, declared.
