1902 - April 5 - MORE WEAVERS GO OUT. 125 Danielson Operatives Strike in Sympathy with Olneyville Brethren.
Danielson, Conn., April 5. - All the weaves in the Moosup mill of the American Woolen Company - 125 in number - went out on strike at 8:30 this morning. This action is taken in sympathy with the Olneyville, R.I., strike.
Last evening, at a meeting of the weavers, it was decided definitely to quit work this morning, a demand made of the management early in the week not having been complied with. The demand was for an assurance that the two loom system which led to the Olneyville strike shall not be put in force in the Moosup mill.
All departments of the mill except the weaving continued running to-day.
