The following letter has been sent by the Tailoresses’ Union to all the master tailors in the City with regard to the dispute between the latter and the Dunedin Tailors’ Operative Society, and which is td come before the Conciliation Board on Mondav ;

Gentlemen,-1 am directed by the shop hands ot the Dunedin Tailoresses' Union to respectfully urge you to strongly protest against the injustice of the two following clauses, which have been put before you by the journeymen tailors of this City, viz.:

. 0) That only one weekly wage man be employed in each shop; and (2) Where females are employed they must-make and press their own work. If No. 1 clause was conceded it would mean that a large number of females would be thrown out of employment. In regard to c'ause 2, we consider that a woman is physically unable to press "her own work. It is our intention to look after the interest of our members, and we respectfully ask you to protest against this injustice being done to one portion of workers for the gain of the other portion. Trusting yon will grant our request. Ada F. Whitehokn, Secretary D.T.U.
