TO BE KEPT ON JOB
APPEAL COMMITTEE RULING
WANGANUI, this day.
Two and a half years ago a fitter, employed at Kempthorne Prosser and Co's fertiliser works at Aramoho, transferred to the Imlay Freezing Works following special requests made for his services both directly and through the National Service Department. He agreed to the change after receiving assurances from the department and promises from the chief engineer at Imlay that the new position would be permanent. This month, however, the management at the Imlay works took steps to dispense with his services, and these were supported by the department.
As a result the fitter, Mr. E. N. Clisby, appealed before the No. 2 Wellington Industrial Manpower Appeal Committee in Wanganui. Although the manager of the Imlay works told the committee that it was necessary to release Clisby to make way for a returned man, the committee ruled that appellant would have to continue at the works.
The manager, Mr. H. E. Ziesler, said that Clisby had been the last to come on the staff and, therefore, would have to be the first to go.
"It seems appellant was given a promise by your chief engineer that the job would be permanent," stated a , member of the committee, Mr. A. Black.
Mr. Ziesler: Anyone who would promise a man a permanent job in a freezing works is beyond my comprehension.
