Sept. 21, 1972
Employees of the 24-hour Tourist Cafe at 1234 Main St. went on strike and are picketing along the sidewalk at its entrance.
Dwight L. Fleury, leasor and operator of the cafe since Feb. 1971, said the union contract expired in June and that wages asked in the new contract would amount in one year to more than the business profit of the last year.
The employees’ spokesman said they’re asking a 30-cent hike in minimum pay, plus time-and-a-half pay for overtime and holidays. Present minimum wage is $1.45 an hour.
Mrs. Amelia T. DuVal died after being struck by a car.
