AUCKLAND CARTERS AND DRIVERS.

AUCKLAND, March 10

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.
