3,000 Men Idle. DISPUTE AT LANCASTER & CO.'S PITS. A CLOD SCALE GRIEVANCE, This morning the five collieries under the Messrs Lancaster and Co. suspended operations, "hereby about 3,000 men are idle. Councillor Wrn. Davies was selected to preside at a mass testing held this forenoon at Blaina Market Hall, Which was crowded. Mr J. Evans, secretary of the alaina Colliery Workmen's Committee, explained fliati at the meeting held about a month ago a deputation was appointed to wait upon the Management with reference to a clod scale and -he demand of the hauliers for 6d per turn. While the latter item was conceded, the manage- ment said they had not had sufficient notice with regard to the clod scale and could not consider it Ab that time. They however stated that they Ivere prepared to give an answer in a lew days. The answer received was in tee form of a letter asking that the matter be deferred on account of the holidays. After Hie boliday; instead of asking the deputation to place the proposal before the management, or sString an alternative, a letter was received from Sba managing director, Mr M. Woolsteuholm, by •he secretary of the Workmen's Committee that illeir application with regard to tho standard 'hickness of coal and the clod scale, and other iotnpttinta, had been under the consideration of :he directors on the 18th inst., and the result of lheir deliberations was that the whole matter naat be placed before the Coalowners' Associa- tion for their consideration. The workmen KJntend that these matters should not be relegated 10 the Coalowners' Association or the Sliding icale Joint; Committee in this manner, and before hey had been considered as between the Men's committee and- the management. The initial Itp had bi-,entakeii o,i Friday at No. 3 Griffin Pit, 'here tho workmen came out because Committee. nan Thos. Thomas had, tcr some reason or other, >een Unable to tind work. The committeemen at <he several collieries were called out :tt dinner- limp, and it was decided to ;t!lk the general body 5f the men their opinion on this and the attitude yf the management with regard to the clod 1le application. Several speakers explained ihat Thomas was not stopped, but that a place Suuld not be found for him, while work had been for another man in .lie pit. ihe meeting after a full consideration of this grievance approved the action of the committee 11 the matter, and unanimously resolved that 'ntil the management is prepared to negotiate aPon th-i grievances submitted by the General Works Committee, on behalf of the several pit ;°namittees, they (the workmen) should remain 'die. This was supplemented by a vote of confidence in the committee, and a resolution Calling upon the engmemeu and stokers to cease Work as soon as sufficient notice had been given to the management. The secretary (Mr John Evans) was instructed M communicate the decision of the meeting to khe management, and a deputation was appointed tO meet the management if necessary.
