BEDWAS PITS ID'LE. I BEDWAS PITS IDXE. MEN'S GRIEVANCE WITH THE MANAGEMENT Owing to a dispute arising out of the Minimum Wage Act 2,000 colliers have stopped work at the Bedwas Navigation Pits. The men held a. meeting on Saturday to consider the situation, and in an official report it was alleged that the management ha.d been dealing unfairly with WTilliam Hudd, one of the workmen. It tran.ipired that this man had claimed under the Minimum Wage Act. and in consequence, it was alleged, had. been given fourteen days notice. The work- men, according to the report, fearing that this was a movement on the part of the management tor meke the Minimum Wage Act obsolete, decided at any cost to re- sist it. Mr David Richards, checkweighcr, ex- plained the position, and suggested that the men should ask that two of their number be allowed to visit the disputed places in the pit. Messrs. Henry Harris, John Willis, and W. J. Milsom, checkweighers, supported Mr Richardis. «-nd the meeting unani- mously agreed that a deputation should wait upon the nianagenimt with a view to securing the withdrawal of the notice given to Hudd, and, failing to achieve that object, it was resolved to give four- teen days' notice on Wednesday next.
