THE TAILORESSES' UNION.

TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—l see by this morning's ' Daily Times' that Morris and Seelye have agreed to pay the prices compiled in the log prepared by the Union, providing they are allowed to finish existing contracts. Now, sir, I would ask how long M. and S. will take to execute this order, as I understand that it is quite common for manufacturers to enter into contracts the completion of which will extend over three and six months —in some cases longer, Knowing from good authority that M. and S. opposed the recognition of the Union—in fact, signed a document not to recognisa it I cannot but think, along with others, that their feigned compliance with the log prices is only a bluff—that they will have no more scruple in ignoring the Union than they have had in ignoring the Manufacturers' Association. I have no doubt there are other manufacturers prepared to pay the log prices, providing they are allowed to finish existing contracts in a specified time, say two weeks or one month. Hoping the Union will see that a date is fixed for the finishing of this contract, as if not it may lead to further disputes,—l am, etc., Sympathy. Dunedin, August 30,
