No work was done by boilermakers and engineers and related tradesmen at the shipyards of Steel Ships, Limited, this morning owing to a stop-work meeting held to discuss conditions governing the working of overtime. The dispute, which involved about 80 men, was confined to the trades mentioned. Shipwrights and plumbers in the employ of the company were not affected, nor were employees of other shipbuilding firms.
A preliminary stop-work meeting was held yesterday morning, after which the men returned home. A further meeting took place in the cafeteria at 8 o'clock this morning, when a committee was set up to wait on the employers.
It was stated by the management of the firm and employees' representatives early this afternoon that the dispute had been settled amicably and that all the men, with a few exceptions, had returned to work.- Those still absent were expected to work to-morrow.
