"WE SWANSEA GIRLS."j ROW AT A CONTROLLED FACTORY. SEQUEL AT LOCAL MUNITIONS COURT. Seven gii is were charged at a Munitions Tribunal at Swansea on Monday with! refusing duty in a controlled factory and prevailing on other girls to act similarly, thereby delaying work for about four hours. The girls in the works objected to the dismissal of the cloak-room girl, and seven of them signed a document, which retid as follows, addressed to the ladies' welfare superintendent inladaine, if you persist in disoharg- ing the girl all the girls in this shift will close work until a proper reason is given. The chief time-keeper said: that there was A great fuss and tumult ill the works on the 8th. One of the de- fendants was making a speech advising the girls not to go to work. Another defendant said. We Swansea girls will see that we have our rights, as the Llaneliy will do nothing." It was stated that by their action the girls delaved 200 men in another depart- ment. The cloak-room* girl was offered work in another capacity, but refused. She had been dismissed by the manager, who was absent in London. The court, after hearing the defen- dants, decided that they had acted fool- ishly, and the Chairman (Mr. Vaughan Edwards) whilst saying that they wou'id not be fined on this occasion, strongly cautioned them as to their future conduct Mr. Pugh (Dockers' Union) appeared f01 the girls.
