No Railway Strike. MYNYDD MAWR TROUBLE SETTLED. The dispute on the Mynydd Maur Rail- way has been settled, and tho men have decided to resume work forthwith. The trouble arose out of the refusal of the Board of Trade to control the line, and notices were issued to the men by the Company to the effect that they were compelled to return to pre-war conditions which meant the abolition of the war bonus and the adoption of a ten hours working day. In consequence of this the men employed on 'the railway came out on strike on Saturday, and by their action ever 2,000 miners employed at the Great Mountain Collieries at Tumble have been thrown out of employment, the Mynydd Mawr line being the only railway feeding thoso collieries. The matter was reported to the annual general meeting of the National Union of Railwaymen (to which the men belong)., held at Plymouth, and they decided to give support to the workmen, and an in- timation was given to the Board of Trade that unless the matter was satisfactorily •settled furher action would be taken by tho railwaymen throughout the United Kingdom. The Mynydd Mawr men held a meeting at Llanellv at which Mr. A. J. Williams.. South Wales organiser of the National Union of Railwaymen, was-present. While the meeting was in progress n0iiifiention was received that a settlement l ad been reached between the Board of Trade and the Railway Company, which provides for the necessary financial assistance to meet the men's demands. The retsult of the settlement means that the n.en will be brought under the same conditions of employment as those on other railways, and will participate in "the recent national settlement. It is probable that on Monday work will be resumed in full at the affected collieries.
