THE PREFERENCE TROUBLE

AUCKLAND, March 2

'* /While the Wellington men have sent a deputation to the Prime Minister, alleging that preference is being given to certain men belonging to what is practically the same* union, the Axickland waterside workers will this week attempt to obtain concessions through the channel of the Arbitration Act.

/Mr H; J. Sheppard, secretary of the Coal and Cargo Workers' Union, told a reporter thafe j,the. minutes .of the Auckland Waterside Trade' Union of Workers and of the Coal and Cargo Workers' Union, both of which com- f prise men who recently went on strike, were going before the Conciliation Commissioner on Wednesday, and expected to go to the Arbitration Court within a month. ".In the event of an award not going'through,'there will be trouble abroad," he added. There was great privation, he said, amongst men with families who could not obtain work owing ,to the preference clause, and many of them had distress warrants out against them. ' He declared that the new Waterside Workers' Union was refusing admission to the ex-strikers, and was acting illegally by j making itself a close corporation 1.
