Union officials said a strike notice had been filed some time ago when the company and union could not get together on "certain parts" of a new contract. An agreement of a 12-cent an hour Increase, offered by the com- pany, nearly reached by both groups, but the union said the com- pany wanted to add provisions or omit certain points In tho contract. The company also offered paid holidays which they said makes the increase a fraction under 15 cents an hour. The Donovan company operates only one plant in Wlnona, a war contract plant having been closed, and its work consists principally of the manufacture of castings for tractors.
