Tinpiate Settlement I I ANOTHER CONCILIATION TRIUMPH I Yesterday, the Tinplate Industrial Council held, at Swansea, a meeting to deal with the question of wages in the tinplate trade. These were :-(1) A re- ducticn of hours at mills; (2) A general increase of wages; (3) Minimum wages to certain workmen; (4) Increased number of men per mill for annealing; (5) Payment for holidays; (6) Helpers to be paid on a graduated scale. More than ordinary interest was d- tached to.he meeting on account of the Welsh tinplate trade being menaced by American competition. j The main points round which dis- cussion centred were demands for six hours shifts in mills and for an all round percentage increase in wages. The men demanded an all-round advance of 30 per cent. The men were unwilling to accept j the employers' offer, which was, to give I an all-round increase of 12i per cent for ( months from June to September. Even- tue.IIy, however, it was agreed that for the three months specified there should be an increase of 12r per cent. With regard to the demand for a 6- hours shift in the mills, the employers made the concession that no extra mill should be started in individual works until all mills now working in those works were on six 'hours, but that no mills were to be stopped in order to change from eight hours to six hours. This was agreed j to. Steps were a lso taken with regard to the joint delegation to be sent to America, to investigate and report upon the con- ditions of working in that country. It was stated that both sides had selected representatives, and the tour would gin as soon as possible. | Thus a wage conference has once more been brought tc a satisfactory conclusion, j which says much for the attitude of bot4 sides, and may be regarded as one more triumph for the South Wales Tinplate Conciliation Board.
