TINWORKS MEN. Following the consideration of the., Whitley Report and the sectional dis- j fissions of wages questions which tge: various sections of tinplate workers have recently been dealing with the most im- portant body, viz., that of the finishers, which is aSiliated to the Dockers' Union, will (writes our Trade Correspondent) > hold its annual conference at Swansea- on Saturday. Delegates from all parts of South Wales will be in attendance. In connection with the comb-out of tin- plate workers, it is pointed out by some of the districts that, owing to voluntary enlistments and the numerous "-calls," thonsends have joined the colours, thus reducing the total of over 24,000 men who; were at work prior to the outbreak of the?, war to about one-half that number. The 1 strain on some mills is, therefore, very great.
