Mynyjid Mawr Trouble It is reported that the Llanelly Myn- ydd Mawr Railway Company have ten- dered their notices to their employes ter- minating their engagement under the ex- isting conditions with the view of revert- ing to the pre-war state of affairs. Th% notices expire en Saturday, and it is probable that the men will strike on Mon- day next. Under the notice the company propose to increase the working hours from eiglit. to ten per day and to abolish the war bonus of about 150 per cent. We understand that the step taken by the Company is due to the continual re- fusal of the Board of Trade to place them on the controlled list of railways. Re- peated applications have been made by the Company to the Board of Trade but without any satisfactory result, although owing to the war, the Company have been badly hit. Most of the railways in the cotintiv are controlled, including the Burry Port and G.V. Railway, which serves practically the same district as the Mynydd Mawr. Under these circumstances, the Mynydd Mawr Co. have no option but to tender llüticps LI their employees, to revert to pre-war conditions which means the aboli- tion of 33s. a week war bonus. A stoppage on this railway will affcct the collieries at Tumble where about 2,000 men are employed. In fairness to the Company, it should be stated that the employees thoroughly appreciate the anomalous position created by the refusal of the Board of Trade to treat this railway as others have been and are treated. At the same time they can- not be expected to accept pre-war condi- tions involving such a tremendous loss of Wl ge S.
