THE TAILORESSES’ UNION.
The adjourned conference of the clothing manufacturers and the Committee of the Tailoresses’ Union was held last night. There was a largo attendance of the manufacturers, and all the members of the Committee were present. At the invitation of both parties Mr George Fenwick took the chair. Representatives of the Press were not admitted. Messrs J. A. Millar and C. W. Smith were appointed to represent the Tailoresses’ Union on the Joint Committee, Messrs Hallenstein and Hercus to represent the manufacturers, and, in accordance with the resolution adopted at the meeting on Wednesday afternoon, are required to appoint two outside members. This will be done before Saturday. Consideration of the rules occupied a deal of time, and they were adopted with the exception of one or two, which it was agreed to refer to the Joint Committee for settlement. It was resolved—“ That the agreement now being entered into between the Union and tho manufacturers shall be for a definite period of twelve months from tho Ist September.” Mr Smith moved and Miss Morrison seconded—“ That the Committee of the Union and the manufacturers meet for the purpose of settling the log on Saturday afternoon at eight o’clock ; and that in case of any items being disputed the Joint Committee meet on Saturday evening to settle the same.” Carried unanimously. The Secretary stated that Messrs Morris and Seelye had agreed to pay the price in tho log drawn up by the Union Committee, provided they were allowed to finish a contract they took in hand before the Union was started.
