DISPUTE IN THE CARPENTERS'AND JOINERS' TRADES AT BARRY. THE MASTERS REFUSE TO MEET THE MEN. AND DECLINE TO GRANT THE INCREASE OF WAGES. STRIKE OF THE MEN INEVITABLE. On Wednesday morning last, Mr Fred Walls, acting as secretary on behalf of the executive com- mittee of the Carpenters' and Joiners' Society in the Barry district, received a communication from Mr H. J. Money, of Barry, secretary of the local Master Builders' Association, stating that the master builders, at a meeting held at Harry's Restaurant, Barry Dock, on Tuesday evening, had passed a resolution declining to grant to the men an increase of wages of halfpenny per hour, making 8Jd, the same figure as that in vogue in the carpenters' and joiners' tiades at Cardiff. The masters have also declined to meet the men in con- ference under any circumstances, and likewise object to the proposal to amend the code of work- ing rules with regard to the prohibition of piece- work and the employment of a limited number of improvers. On these grounds the masters will not sign the men's amended code of rules, nor grant the increase asked for. The period of notice which the men have given to the masters expires on Monday next, and it is considered that a strike is inevitable, the men coming out on Tuesday morning. The dispute affects upwards of 100 hands, 64 of whom are members of the local branch of the Amalgamated Society of Carpenters and Joiners. A mass meeting of the trades affected will be held at the Victoria Hotel, Barry Dock, to-morrow (Saturday) evening, at six o'clock, to discuss the situation, when society and non-society men are invited to be present.
