Employees Given 5% Raise; Janitors Receive Hours Cut

University employees have received contracts for the coming year with a general five percent raise in pay. The janitors took a cut in hours, from 44 to 40, with the same total weekly pay in preference to a wage increase without shorter hours.

When Daniel G. Mulvihill, president of the Employees Representative Association, told the janitors they would have to choose one or the other and would not get both this year, many of the men expressed dissatisfaction with the H.U.E.R.A. Most other groups in the union already had the 40-hour week and were getting the pay raise besides.
