OVERTIME

SERIOUS DISORGANISATION

PROBABLE

(Per Press Association—Copyright)

(Received February 6, 10.15 a.m.) SYDNEY, February 6.

It is anticipated that to-night's meeting of wharfmen will adopt the policy recommended by the Waterside Workers' Federation not to work overtime in the future, and as tlie employers firmly maintain their attitude of refusing the Federation's demands for increased rates" serious disorganisation of shipping , appears inevitable, not only at Sydney, but at all ports where the Federation's ukase runs. The wharfmen contend that it is unfair of the shipowners to expect them to be always available and yet; not average more than 35s weekly throughout the year. They declare that many ,of them get. not more than 20 hours' work weekly, and at least 20 per cent, get less than 15 hours.
