PAYMENT FROM ROLL CALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 24 August 1910
PAYMENT FROM ROLL GALL. , Dear Worker, — I Avas engaged for . the shearing at Hartwood as -shed' hand, and acting up to' the advice tendered in, your columns, Ave Avho AA*ere going to Avork. put in the rep. to ascertain under what con ditions Ave were to start. The representa tive of the Federal rC©'mp''ahy (Hartwood is contract this season) told our rep: tliat the aAA'ard conditions Avould prevail, and . he hoped eArerything Avould go on satisfac torily. When questioned as. to payment from date of signing -on, he said tliat Ave could sign on that date (the 5th) and pay ment AA'oulcl start from the 6th, thus eA:ad ing one day's Avages. A meeting of shed hands AAras then held, and' it Avas decided not to accept the terms offered, and Avith that understanding all hands (apparently) were satisfied. But, I am 'sorry to AArrite, there Avas tlie usual cry from' some of tlie hands 'that they .we're not going to be led astray by a feAv who had a pound or two in .tlieir pockets and did not c...

COOKS CARRYING UTENSILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 24 August 1910
COOKS CARRYING UTENSILS. Dear Worker, — f The following is a resolution which was j passed by shearers and shed hands al ; Edyeroi, and which in due course will reach you through our rep.: — 'That in the Interest of Unionism n cook shall be allowed to carry any cooking utensils-whatever, and that any member causing a breach of this rule be liable to a penalty of not less than £ 5.' I wish to make a few comments «on this subject: — Having followed the profession as cook for a number of years in shearing sheds, I beg to place the following facts before the A.W.L1. members.. A great number of cooks provide at their own expense tools necessary for their' own work, such as mincing machines, carving knives, cake tins, acetylene gas lamps, etc., etc., all of which should be provided by the squatter. As a shearer is njpt allowed to find hit: own machine, why should a cook be per mitted to find his own tools? In many cases where a cook is working in a shed and is armed with 'tools such as ar...
CLOCKS IN SHEDS AND WORKING HOURS. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 24 August 1910
CLOCKS IN SHEDS AND WORKING HOURS. Dear Worker, — ? A great deal' has been said and for warded to conference in resolutions on the above subjects, and 'the placing of a clock In the* shed was one of the claims made on our behalf to the P.U. But what use would the clock be in the shed unless the different times for ceasing and begin ning work throughout the dajr are clearly specified, which at present is not the case. The dissatisfaction which has existed foi years with regard to this matter is, not st much because the time is prolonged at night or anticipated in the morning, but because the customary resting period:, granted to shearers and shed hands dur ing the day are curtailed. The necessities of the industry compel shed hands U work from five to seven minutes afte; the signal to cease work has been given, and any curtailment of the customary time allowed simply robs them of an- participation in the resting periods, the duration of which is not included in tin 48 hours work, and...
THE LABOR DAILY HOW SHALL IT BE OWNED? [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 24 August 1910
THE LABOR DAILY HOW SHALL IT BE OWNED? Some members have been inquiring whether it is intended that the proposed Labor Daily shall be based upon shares issued to individuals 01* whether it shall be Union-owned- and controlled. The answer is that .it will be Union-* owned and controlled. To give the other Unions a chance to come in it is imperative that the scheme shall be based upon company lines. Com pany iaw requires tnat a certain numuer of persons shall join together to enable a company to, be formed in the first in stance. To comply with this law it has been decided that a certain number of approved persons may come in as founda tion members. The total amount of cash they may pay in only -amounts- to £100 out of a total of £100,000, and the voting , power is based on the money paid in, so that it should be clear they will not have ? the slightest power to influence the con trol which the Unions, for whom are reserved, the £99,900 worth of shares, will havfe over the paper.

LEVY FOR LABOR DAILY IMPORTANT NOTICE [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 24 August 1910
LEVY FOR LABOR DAILY ? ' i IMPORTANT NOTICE While, so far as the season has gone, nearly -the whole of our members have been loyally paying up their levies for the i 'Labor Daily' in their first sheds, there yet have been instances where some have -| refused to do so. I The levy was imposed by a huge major- I ity vote of the members themselves; and i it is to be regretted that there is even, one member in our midst prepared to violate' Union principles by trying to evade.pay ment. For the information of such, ^therefore, | we would quote section 68 of -.the Com- J monwealth .Conciliation and-' Arbitra tion Act of 1904. This is' the section: 'All fines, levies, . ? or dues payable to an organization! by any mem- | ber thereof under its rules may, in 'so far as they are owing for any period of mem- j bership subsequent to the registration or i proclamation of the organization, be sued i for and recovered in the name of the or ganization in -any Court of sumrnary jur isdiction constitu...

IMPORTANT NOTICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 24 August 1910
IMPORTANT NOTICE. The State elections for N.S.W. will take place not later, and probably somewhat earlier, than the middle of October next. As large numbers of electors following the shearing industry will be absent from their, electorates then, I would strongly urge all such who have already made en gagements covering that period, or who can now say in what electorates they ex pect to be in about that time, to at once communicate with me, so that early steps can be taken to have special polling booths proclaimed in the electorates they are going to, to enable them to record their votes. Tliey will need to supply full particulars of their names and addresses, the electorates for which they are en rolled, and also, where possible, specify the names 'of the stations they will be at, and where they have no such engagement the electorates they purpose being in at that time. - Much , can be done in his way to mini mise the wholesale' disfranchisement which will otherwise take place under...

BROKEN HILL. Case of Victimization. — Station Hands' and Labor Daily. - ? Since last report . the weather - has been air that could be desired 'from a shearing standpoint, and tlie- early sheds are near ing a-: cut out.

The facts are that the man shore for some time, and was not spoken to regarding his shearing, but an other matter cropped up, and shortly after the man was discharged, presumably for rough shearing. The committee at the shed asked. the_shed overseer if the sheep which were in the man's; pen were those he discharged him on, and. the reply was 'No, I sacked him for the she...
