Wale* Munitions Tribunal was held on Saturday afternoon at Swansea Labour Exchan under the presidency of Mr. J. Vaughai Edwards. Mr. J. W. Thorpe was clerk ot the court. Three munition workers in a controlled factory were proceeded against for tbi alleged offence of entering a. compai-tm in a, train reserved for the foremen, M? refusing to leave when ordered by the raik way officials, and thereby preventing the foremen from reaching the factory gatel in time to admit the workers under thelip charge, on November 28th, 1916. When tho. train arrived at the factory it was stated the foremen had to procure identification tickets to enable the worker. to enter the factory. On that. particular, morning they were delayed for about teii minutes before gettin.g to the room for th,- tickets, owing to being at the end of the train instead of the front part, and all thl, workers were therefore delayed from en* tet-ing the factory. The men refused tc leave the compartment when requested. A witness waL-, able to identify the thre4 defendants as three of the men. in the con* partment. The men's attention was dramit, to the notice, Foremen Only," bv tht last witness, and he asked them twice tf leave the carriage, but no one replied. Someone then suggested that their naanei and numbers should be taken, and one or the defendants said, You can blooming well have my number," and shouted it oufc One of them also said that they were As good as the foremen, v. ana tnev did not see why the forerneil should have reserved compartments an; more than they. Answering the Chairman* witness said none of the workers lost anf working time that morning. The delaj caused a disorganisation. One of the defendants said on the morn* ing in question the train was craiumecl full. Two young women and hrmswti entered the carriage. They entered th. carriage under a misapprehension. Th. foreman called as the second witness cawrti to the window and said What are you doing here? Don't you I know that this is the foremen's compart- vient" P He remained in the carriage as a protest, as he wanted the case re- ported so as to bring to the notice of the firm's manager the language used by the foreman in the presence of the young women. This allegation of had language was denied by the foreman in question. Witness told the chairman now that he took the responsibility for the others. Mr. Edwards said that workmen were open to bring cases to that court if any officials were guilty of misconduct in any. way. The Chairman said the Tribunal had come to an unanimous decision on the facts. They held that a breach of rules had been committed. The three defen- dants were ordered to pay 9s. each to- wards the costs.
