AUCKLAND CARTERS AND DRIVERS.
AUCKLAND, March 10
An important stop was taken last night by the members of the Auckland Drivers' and Carters' Union. This Union was practically the only " industrial " union, that is, a union registered under the Industrial Conciliation and Arbitration Act, which in Auckland decided to affiliate with the United Federation of Labour. With the "trade" Union of- Waterside Workers (registered under the Trades Union Act) it formed the nucleus of what was to be a transport section of the United Federation. Last night at a general meeting of carters, there being about ]50 in attendance, the question of secession, from tho United Federation was brought up. A ballot had been taken on this question a week or so ago, but it was never declared, the grounds given being that, it had been ruled to be? illegal. A ballot was therefore taken, of those present at this meeting, with tho result that _by athree to one majority it was decided to secede from the United Federation .of Labour.
