— THE PONTARDAWE STRIKE Following the meeting between Messrs. F. W. Gilbertson, C. G. Gil- bertson, and W. Clement (secretary of the Employers' Association) held at the Hotel Metropole on Saturday, a report of the proceedings was given to the galvanizers at the Victoria Hotel on Monday evening. On Wednesday evening Mr. T. Hughes, organiser of the Dockers' Union, attended and addressed a fairly representative meeting of the members of the branch of the Dockers' Union, when, after a discussion lasting an hour and a half the meeting decided by a majority of 11 votes to accept the ad- vice of the officials, and resume work under the same conditions as they came out a month ago on the understanding that the grievances would be dealt with by an independent committee, com- posed of three employers and three workmen. Much dissatisfaction is expressed at the decision, a.nd although it is stated that work will be resumed on Monday, there is a strong feeling amongst a section of those who have grievances in the galvanizing department that a big mistake has been made in agreeing to resume work without some definite assurance from the firm. A meeting of the "tankers" and "dippers" will be held this (Friday) evening. <»♦>»
