DISMISSED HARBOUR WORKERS.

APPEAL FOR REINSTATEMENT.

DUNEDIN, February 10.

A deputation waited on the Otago Harlxrar Board this afternoon to ask the Board to consider the question of reinstating five men who had left the Board's service during the strike period rather than carry out instructions to erect barricades on the whaves. The members of the deputation said that the men who were dismissed were recognised as efficient workmen and had been •in the Board's service for many years. When ordered to put up the barricades? they asked for police protection which was : refused them. They then refused to "do the work, presumably on the grounds that,they ran serious risk of bodily injury and: that it was unfair for the Board to request them to do such work. It was also pointed out that the Board was doing a .wrong thing in haying 18 or ,20 nonunionists in its employ" at the* present time where there were Unionists available for employment. Finally they asked that the dismissed men should be reinstated at the earliest opportunity.

In the course of a brief discussion between the Board; members Mr Scollay said there had been a black list in circulation on the waterfront since the strike and what was going on was anything but a credit to the community.' The matter was finally referred for a report to a committee consisting of Messrs Bullock, Belcher, London, and the chairman (Mr Moller).
