PREFERENCE TO UNIONISTS.

.CHRISTCHURCH EMPLOYEES FINED. (By Telegraph.—Own Correspondent.) CHRISTCHURCH, this day. Two breaches of the preference to unionists clauses of award were dealt with by Mr. Bishop, S.M., to-day. ln a case against E. A. Squires, builder, the defence was that defendant was under the impression that the award provided that a contractor could employ other contractors without being compelled to comply with the preference clause. The representative of the Labour Department pointed out that no such provision had appeared in any award for the past six years, and defendant was fined 20/ and costs.

In Wardell Bros.' case the defendants wanted the services of an engine driver, accustomed to refrigerating machinery, and advertised for such a man. It was said that the firm should first have consulted the union's f-mpioy-raent book, and they were fined 20/ and costs.
