Garment Factory Strike Settled

    An agreement between the Golden Gate Manufacturing Company and the Chinese local of the International Ladies Garment Workers' Union was announced yesterday, ending a 100-day strike at the company's Chinatown factory.

    National Dollar Stores, Ltd., former owners of the plant withdrew a $500,000 damage suit filed against the union for picketing its retail stores. The union dropped unfair charges lodged against Dollar stores with the National Labor Relations Board.

    The union won a 5 per cent pay increase and recognition.
