RHYMNEY VALLEY MINER5 11 ASSOCIATION. Mr JOhl liavvkimi presided at the monthly meeting of the Rhvmney Valley District of the S W.M P. at the Federation Office, Bargoed, on Saturday. There were also present, in addition to the various delegates, Mr Mark English, New Tredegar (vice-presiden-), Mr Edmund j )UPS (treasurer), Mr Albert Thomas (sub- agert and secretary), and Mr Walter Lewis (agent). UNREST.—An official report stated that the agent reported that consider- able unrest existed among the work. men of the district owing to various managements developing searns of coal and introducing new methods of wot king, such as machinery in the shape of conveyors, &c., without any consultation between the Workmen's Committee or Miners' Agents, and they had been vejy near haviVg" an uneonstitutional revolt in the vtlley recently, owing to this policy of the coal owners. The Agent not only condemned the managements fer this procedure, bnt workmen aliko for developing seems without even giving the necessary information to tha pit committees and their agents, so that protective measures eould be taken. The root objection was the working of the seams wi;.hout a price list. The Agent made it very clear to the dele- gateik that w hen new seams were opened up in the future, or an new methods introduced, they ebould acquaint him at the earliest possible moment. It was of vital importance that price lists abould be negotiated as early as possible in the opening up of new seams, and such a policy would prove 8 benefit to the men and avoid to a large extent, the unrest and friction which prevailed. So recent as 12 months ago, proceeded the Agent (Mr Walter Lewin), we settled a price list under the auspices of the Conciliation Board for the Polka Seam in the Bargoed Colliery, to work on a long wall fashion. Since then, however, the employers had introduced tha new conveyor method and replaced v,he old systera long. wall, scrapped the price list without giving the workmen 14 days' notice to terminate contracts in accordance with the Conciliation Board Agree- ment, or informing him (the agent) of the change in custom. They also introduced pitsce work rates fixjd by themselves, and made up men's wages forkperiod. The making up of,.vi-t-es, however, suddenly dropped, and men went home with low wages, some with wages as low as 10/- per day. It was immensely unfair to exp(.ct the Miners' Federation and its committees, added Mr Lewis, to lead men to adopt constitutional methods when the employers adopted the methods referred to. This was going on, more or less, aU over the district. In Bar- goed Pit, for the last month, they had onoe or twice a week, men laying down their tools for the day and going out Thou followed interviews with the management, and meetings to report 8uch interviews, and it was with great difficulty that be (theagen)had been able to keep the men at their work. HOUSK COAL SUPPLY. I In all the Powell Duffryn Pits in the valley, for some months the em- ployers had been failing to supply bouse coal to the men with anything like the regularity and quantity pro- vided for under custom, the nause being, no doubt, the failure of the hanlirig contractors on account of war conditions. Meantime, they con- tended that the employers were under obligation to supply the prescribed quantity, and he (the agent), was now pleased to report that the P.D. Com- pany had taken to do this work by meaus of their own horses and carts. Old arrears were being cleared off and the supply was becoming like adequate. In the case of the Rhymney Com- pany's pits; proceeded Mr Lewis, 'here sc-ort ed to have been a general move to reduce the qualifications for house coal. Even a clearly married house- holder and employee had failed to obtain his house coal, owing to cer- tain reasons. He was, however, now pleased to report that as the result of an interview with tho General Manager these cases had been admit- ted to be a breach of custom, so that the air, had been considerably cleared. "It is, olllyrair to say," uddt-d the Agent, that the General Manager complained that he bad got evident indications, especially in the upper part of the v> lley—at Rhymney—that the coal oul-plied to and due to the workmen, had boon shared even among wvU-tttfd cftihw intMi ill tha town. While I cannot vouch for this being correct, it was toli me by the manager, and; if it is true, I can only spy that I regret it, and workmen (should bear in mind that this coal is for their domestic purpose, and should not be doled out to people who are not enti- tled to coal at workmen's rates."
