AI400AL LABOR DAY TAYLORSVILLE GRANGE HALL -SEPTEMBER mmm RETURNS TODAY; SANS PAY BOOST Some employees returned to work at the Setzers' Greenville mill this morning following a get-together of employees, man- agement and union men yester- day afternoon, it is reported. At a meeting of union mem- bers of the Setzer employees on Tuesday night 36 voted against returnin gto work at the mill as against 13 favorable votes, it was reported, the action be- ing the rejection of a new con; tract submitted by the company. Differences were negotiated at the joint meeting yesterday, it is learned, and the mill is pre- paring to resume production on a full-scale basis. All other mills in the area have reached agreements with their employees and are again in operation, terminating the strike which went into effect on June 21 and involved mills in the three west coast states. No wage increases were granted although the original demand of the Lumber & Saw- mill Workers Uunion AFL was for a 12(,-eent an hour increase for all workers. The mills stood firmly behind their contention that conditions in the lumber industry would not warrant any cost increase at this time.
