EMPLOYERS OPENING DEPOTS. (Received February 23, 9.15 a.m.) SYDNEY, February S3, There is no present prospect of a settlement of the meat strike. The Labour Council has decided on a course of action with regard to the unions affected or likely affected; this action is not disclosed, but has been communicated to the unions themselves. . The men's; committee of inquiry replied to the Labour Council's proffered aid that the meat industry would control the strike, and would inform the Council if further extension •should take place.

Limited stock sales will be held today. The employers aim at opening many j additional- depots this week. Saturday's shortage of meat was due to the small number available for killing, also to the cold storage employees' refusal to handle the meat. The employers propose to overcome the latter difficulty by handling it themselves; they have received many offers of assistance outside members of the Association, but so far have declined to avail themselves of the free labour.;

Soirjie £5000 has been subscribed towards the employers' defence fund, and .this, with the profits from the sale of niea**at the depots, will be' used as compensation to the smaller butchers and other purposes associated with the struggle.
