    ASHEVILLE IS MAKING PROGRESS
ALONG LINES OF ORGANIZATION;
MAY CATCH CHARLOTTE, SOME DAY
ASHEVILLE, N. C., Dec. 10.—This
city’s Central Labor Union will dose
the year 1940 with a most remarkable
growth of the Labor Movement.
While 1939 was a banner year, the
progress made in 1940 far exceeds
that of the previous year. During
the past two years the Central Labor
Union has added fourteen new Local
Unions to the American Federation
of Labor's official family, some of the
locals being unusually large and pow
erful With the newly organised
Local Unions in the city proper, and
hundreds of members employed on the
two big pobs at Nantahala and Glen
ville, these being under the Asheville
jurisdiction, membership of A. F. of
L. Unions in this city has experienced
a tremendous growth.
In Asheville proper the following
Local Unions have been organized,
many of which have already obtained
agreements with employers, while ne
gotiations are under way at this time
for agreements in other plants and
places of employment. The new Lo
cal Unions are:
The Enka Rayon Workers’ Local,
the Tannery Workers’ Local, The
Linemen’s Local of the I. B. E. W., the
Auto Mechanics Local of the I. A.
M. , the Gas Workers’ Local, the Sayles
Bleachery Workers Local, the Ashe
ville Cotton Mill Employes Local,
Teamsters and Chauffeurs Local, the
Creamery Workers’ Local, the BuUd

UNDER AGREEMENT
COPPERHILL, Tenn., Dec. 10.—
Everything in the Copper Basin is
progressing in splendid manner, now
that the American Federation of La
bor Unions here and at Duclctown are

Signing of the A. F. of L. agreement
recently ended a struggle that has
been raging here for the past three
years, and marks the beginning of the
return of the membership of the Mine,
Mill and Smelter Workers Unions back
to the American Federation of Labor.

The newly organized Textile Local
Union made up of employes of the
employes of the Dalagrave Textile

$2.00 a week increase in pay for all i
of the employes. A strike was called |
last Thursday when it appeared that
the company would not recognize the
union as the bargaining agency. Ne
gotiations were immediately started,
local union officials assisted by Gor
