A general membership meeting of Local 103 of the United Textile Workers of America, A.F, of L., in Carleton Place unanimously rejected an offer of wage increases ranging from 3 to 5 cents an hour from the Bates and Innes Company and the Renfrew Woollen Company (Hawthorne Mill).

The meeting, which was attended by a majority of the employees from both mills, instructed the negotiating committees to continue discussions with the Companies for an increase commensurate with the increase in the cost of living.
