(C) New York Times Service NEW YORK - In the first industrywide walkout since 1921, about 110,000 workers represented by the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America went on strike Saturday against about 750 manufacturers of men's and boys' suits, topcoats and overcoats in the nation. Approximately 40,000 machine operators, cutters, markers, button and pocketmak- ers, and other workers are employed by the struck manufacturers' in the New York metropolitan area. Major issues in the dispute are the union's demand for a sizable increase in the present average wage of $3.50 an hour and a cost-of-living escalator in a new contract. Although most clothing stores contacted here said Saturday that they had sufficient present inventories, they voiced worry that the strike would delay delivery of fall clothing, most of which is now being cut in the factories.
