(Received March 3, 9.30 a.m.) - SYDNEY, March 3. The decision at the master butchers' meeting is not disclosed, but it is believed they decided to adhere to their -attitude of insisting that work should be resumed on the conditions existing prior to the strike. t
A mass meeting of the men will be
held to-night to consider the position. ,- They,are still willing to return on ttie terms of the Cabinet^ original suggestion, namely, 49J. hours per week and '5s advance. In the event of. not reaching a settlement, they propose to open more union depots.
Though the supply of meat at i masters' depots was short yesterday, aio attempt was made to utiliso the chilled stocks.'
' The wharf labourers worked overtime last night, but still decline to ship frozen cargo. For the first time since the strike, the master butchers operated, at i
Homebush sales in order to keep up the city .supply. A number of nonassociated butchers also-bought freely. Competition was keen - arid prices higher.
