Queensland Rail Strike Opening of Parliament PICKETS AT OIL DEPOT Brisbane, March 9. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 9 March 1948
Queensland Rail Strike ? ♦ ? Opening of Parliament PICKETS AT OIL DEPOT Brisbane, March 9. , When the Queensland Parliament opened to-day the public galleries were crowded with men, a big percentage of whom were plainclothes police and pol ice trainees. Outside there was a heavy guard of police, but there was no sign of the threatened march by striking railwaymen and wharf lab ourers. It was the first time that Parlia ment had met since the strike began on February 2nd. The Labour Gov ernment has refused to bargain with the strikers. . It says they must approach the State Industrial Court. The Industrial Court has ruled it will not hear them until they go back to work. Two hundred pickets stood at the gate of the Shell Coy's Brisbane depot to-day. Men entering the depot had to pass through the pickets. Pickets did not attempt to stop petrol trucks leav ing the depot.

In Europe, Poland. Yugoslavia, Bui- j garia, Albania, Rumania and Czecho slovakia — willingly or otherwise — have ' entered the Soviet fold. Finland looks ! iikely to be the next on the list of 'con- verts' : and Conunuuisin has secured guch a strong hold on other countries that, none too early, led by Britain, the western European nations are actively considering steps to block thu further advance of the red ideology.
