Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 16, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, MAY 16, 1946 Soon Take Off Pickcters ALL QUIET AS LOGGERS DOWN TOOLS AT EASTKOOTENAY CAMPS CRANBROOK. 45 four mill operations In the Cran- brook district closed without inci- dent when the International Wood- workers of America strike went into effect at 11 o'clock Wednesday morning. Union pickeiers remain- ed on the job for only a half hour or so until it became apparent none of the onerators intended to op- pose the strike in any way. During the afternoon the men from the logging camps operated by these companies within a 25- niile range began to arrive in Cran- brook, and she business section, on its regular Wednesday afternoon closure filled quickly with small groups of men but, there was little excitement attached to ihe gath- erings in the afternoon. At-the Sash and Door operations about 135 men are eSected by the tie-up while closure of Cranorook Cartage and Transfer eSects about 75 including the separately op- erated Galloway about 50 more men are effected at. Cranbrook saw- mills and about 30 at the Barr and Kennelly operations. The shut- down began promptly at 11 o'clock and continued without haste for the next hour, some of the workers obviously stopping work with re- gret, but in no local case was com- pulsion used to take men out or keep them. First Since 1920 This is the first, industrial strike in the Cranbrook district since the I.W.W. strike in the early 1920's.
