«» SLAUGHTERING TROUBLE UNSETTLED. I PBESS ASSOCIATION .1 (Received August 15, 8.55 a.m.) SYDNEY, August 15. The Glebe Island slaughtering trouble is still unsettled. The men met and decided to refuse to return to work unless the employers guaranteed day work, irrespective of any decision by the Wages Board. They also determined that even if the Wages Boards' awards were for piecework they would not accept. The men are sanguine of success, as trade will drift to the country slaughterhouses. The Secretary of the Union states that the officials are anxious that the men should accept the latest proposals because they will strengthen the position before the Wages Board, but the men refuse, 6tating that they want a new agreement granting payment of wages for time lost in waiting for sheep. • COMMITTED FOR TRIAL.
