THE TINPLATE TRADE .————— —————. MEETING OF THE UNION EXECUTIVE. PRESENTATION lPF NOTICES POST- PONED. On Saturday last the Executive of the Tinplatc Workers' Union met at the Union Offices, Swansea. Much importance waa attaohed to this meeting on account of the Council of the Trade having given instructions to bring about a stop week, and it being in the power of the Executive to withold or present on behalf of the workmen a general notice on Monday. The chair was occupied by the president of the Union, and there were also prc-sei-it :-Mr. T. Phillips, general Secre- tary Mr. J. H. John, editor Industrial World Mr. H. Davies, vice-president; and Messrs. W. Walker, Joziithan Jones, W. Hughes, Ivor Gwynne, W. Roberts and D. Jenkins, Executive members. A lengthy discussion took place as to the course to be adopted. The notice,1 under certain circumstances, would justify the presenta- tion, but the concensus of opinion was that no notices should be presented unless the men at every works placed their notices in the hand of the Union. A few important works had not done so. It was ultimately resolved-- That the Executive .r the Tiaplaters' -Union ejcpresses its satinfaetioa at tb." manner in which almost all the Union brnuches have obeyed the request to place their notioes in the hand of the Union. But iuasntuoh as cortaim man at important works have iaot done their part, and that their lioticusa are Hot to hand, the Executive deem it advisable to withhold the presentation of geuerallloticelt until the first M&nday in May. It was reported to tho meeiiig that certain employers were ready to undertake to pay the list for a. lengthy period if their men took no part in the proposed stoppage. Whilst pleased at this, the members of the Executive felt that if such offers were accepted, it would add to the difficulty of maintaining uniformity of wage rate., a matter of the highest importance to the employers and workmen.
