Headline: “Strike Stuff”

[partial transcription]

Minneapolis, Sept. 6.

Reaching a compromise at the eleventh hour, local motion picture machine operators and theatre managers avoided a strike here. Managers consented to an average 10 per cent, advance, the final settlement giving the men a boost averaging 12 per rent, for both regular and over-time. Under the new overtime scale, operators at the majority of the large theatres will make on an average of 11.80 an hour overtime, while operators in the smaller theatres will earn on an average of $1.55 overtime. Under the new agreement film will be delivered to them at their projection rooms. Hitherto they have had to go and get it themselves. The new contract runs for one year.

The managers have yet to reach an agreement with the stage hands, but the musicians signed up last week for another year as the scale in effect throughout 1926–27.
