NEW AWARD SOUGHT
AUCKLAND FIRE FIGHTERS A general increase of 15/ a week in wage rates was sought by the Auckland Fire Brigade Employees' Union when its application for a new award was heard in the Arbitration Court this morning. It was submitted on behalf of the union that the Auckland Brigade was the worst paid of all metropolitan fire brigades in New Zealand. Other increases asked for were from 5/ to 7/ in extra pay for firemendrivers, and from 2/ to 6/ a day meal money. The employers offered an increase of 11/8, basing the offer on the fact that this was granted by the Court in Wellington.
