Teamsters.--Upon request of the general manager of the Cleveland
Builders Supply Co. for mediation in a threatened strike of
buildingmaterial teamsters at Cleveland, Ohio, over a question of
recognizing the union in a contract establishing rates of wages,
hours of labor, and working rules, A. L. Faulkner was appointed
commissioner of conciliation. No strike had been officially called,
but it was understood that one would begin in a few days if the
employers refused to sign the proposed contract. The commissioner
had numerous conferences with both employers and employees, and,
having secured a compromise proposition from the employers,
presented it to the local union, by which it was adopted
unanimously. The agreement relates to the employment of all
teamsters in Cleveland except ice drivers, truck drivers, and
sanitary drivers, these being employed under other agreements. It
recognizes the union on an open-shop basis, provides for an
increase of wages approximating an average of $1.25 a week, with
time-and-half pay from 5.30 to 8 p. m. and double pay after 8 p. m.
Employees already receiving a higher rate of wages suffer no
