About 70 union employees of the Bar-Sew garment factory in Lehighton who went on strike yesterday morning will return to work on Monday. Both company and union officials agreed that the matter which caused the strike has been resolved. The dispute was apparently over a wage increase that is part of a new contract. The dispute was settled following a two-hour meeting held yesterday between the company, the union, and a committee of employees.
