    In this letter, Roy J. Kinnear, in his capacity as President of the Associated Industries of Seattle, informs R. W. Felton, the city editor for the Seattle Star, of his organization's position on a "closed shop agreement" for the building trades in Seattle. Kinnear insists that the Associated Industries support "the right of all individuals to join together in the protection of their own interests" but objects to the closed shop as a situation that works "to the detriment of any other citizen who desires to . . . work and prosper". Kinnear reiterates a willingness to see "the Unions go on and prosper", but notes that the city is experiencing a remarkable boom of prosperity and laments any action which would disrupt that course with "a fight saturated with selfish motives". less
