UNION APPEALS FOR FUNDS.
TO CONTINUE THE FIGHT
(Received February 26, 10.10 a.m.)
SYDNEY, February 26
So far, the master butchers have not been approached by the Cabinet Committee, but all parties are anxiously awaiting the result of the conferences with the men, who state they are prepared to enter into further negotiations, even with the masters. The Grand Council of the employees has decided to make an appeal throughout Australia for funds to'continue the fight if. necessary. A resolution was carried that no frozen cargo will be shipped during the continuance of the trouble.
As jfresult of the strike, ,160 carcase carters and members of the Draymen's Union arc idle.
Every effort now seems to be centred on getting the men back to work ; if this is done, it is understood that a tribunal will be appointed to arbitrate quiokly on the matters in dispute.
