Action of the men depends large- ly on the outcome of a meeting of the Central Labor union last night, the call for which was issued by C. M. Smith, president. Another most Important factor in the situa- tion is the attitude of Organizer Lawson, who has the backing of the Amalgp.raated Association of Street and Electric Railway em- ployees of America, in which the local union holds a charter. Passage of a resolution by the local union of the Brotherhood .of Locomotive Engineers declaring the contract a farce Is expected to have' little Influence, as the brotherhood is not affiliated" with the American Federation of Labor, although the application has been made. Mr. Lawson is believed to hold the key to the union situation inas- much as upon his report to the in- ternational headquarters at De.trolt that the local union refused to ac- cept his agreement the strikers may be outlawed from the parent organization.
