"UNION" MEN AS SWEATERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 13 July 1910

'U,'J ION' MEN AS SWEATERS. Dear Worker,— , I think it is time the Australian Work res' Union took up the question of sweat ing within our own ranks: For instance, niany members of our Union for eight months of the year are so-called fencing contractors. In the. case -I am at pre 1 'sent interested in 'the individual takes contracts at so much per chain, and pays '??' -the' unfortunates' who are compelled to Jjrk for him (owing to being married /.ien) the sumptuous sum of 5/ per day and keep themselves, wet days stopped. -Now, does this not appear as if there was collusion between our Union mem ber and the original emplO5rer? The former escapes all chances of being put down as a low-wage man, while the latter, who is a *' strong Union man,' escapes all' odium while in the sheds by strongly expressing himself on the sub-; ject of Union principles. But should such a man be a member of an honor able Union, while for the greatest part of the year he will play into the hands «f a cunning...

SHED WORK IN MAORILAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 13 July 1910

SHED WORK' IN' MAORILAND.' K. C. Miller weighs in with a few points: — Shed hands in Xefr Z'ealand are paid from 15/ to 23/ per week, and work 49 hours. In some of the sheds -in the North Island they shear 9 hours per day, knocking off at 3 o'clock on Satur day, thus making 52^ hours per week for the shearers, and after cleaning- up, e^c, the shed hand would work 51 hours per week. In the South Island they usually knock off at 4 o'clock on Satur day evening. The shed hands in New Zealand are among the poorest paid work ers in that country, and boy labor is largely employed in the sheds. Nothing makes an Australian long for his native land more than the tucker in N.Z. sheds. It is utterly impossible to eat the half cooked stuff they dish up to you in some of the sheds. Of course there are ex ceptions. Now and again you run across 'an Australian cook, and then your heart ?is filled with joy. One of the worst evils in the industry is the contract system of cooking. The cook gets so, mu...

A thud organizer will be put on this season to work tho' western portion of the branch between '' Charleville and Windorah, thence down' to Erromanga, Thargomindah, and Eulo,. and a' fair increase in the membership is expected.

THE FAULTY SYSTEM OF TRANSFER. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 13 July 1910

. - THE FAULTY SYSTEM OF TRANSFER. The large areas were accumulated ^ mainly by transfers of conditional pur chases. During the year immediately pre- ? ceding June 19, 1909, there had been granted 10.65S- such transfers. Of these, 3518 -were absolute transfers, and 7140 - . . transfers by way of mortgage. The Go vernment boasted of ?'putting 11,000 bona fide settlers on the land in six years, yet in one year there had been 351S absolute transfers of conditional purchase areas, which had gone to increase areas held. toy large landowners. T,his showed where the land was going,, yet the only thing the Go vernment could do was set out in the 'Governor's speech in the following words: 'There will be. amendments oi the Crown Lands Act to empower the holders of leases and tenures to convert them into freeholds, to convert on existing values without reappraisement.' This meant 'that holders could get . con version not at-existiug values, but 'at the value in some cases of 15 years ago. The ...

THE ARBITRATION ACT. ELIMINATION OF LEGAL AGENTS. An Appeal for Cheaper Justice. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 13 July 1910

Th'E ARBITRATIOH ACL ELIMINATION OF LEGAL AGENTS. An Appeal for Cheaper Justice. The recent deputa-tion to Mr. Fisher from the Rural, Workers' Union, in ask ;ing for various amendments of the Arbi tration Act, most strongly urged that the 'legal fraternity should be barred from the proceedings before the Arbitration Court. This request has brought upon the heads of the deputation the wrath of the whole legal fraternity, and the ' Age ' (hot withstanding its pretended sympathy for the cause of the workers), true to its capitalistic traditions, opened its columns 1 to try and justify the saddling of the I legal gentlemen on to the cost which the workers have to pay' for justice. The deputation to the Prime Minister pointed out as a reason why the legal agent should be debarred from appearing that the legal costs were so high that it was almost impossible for workers, through their organizations, to go to. the court for jus'tice. The members of the deputation further urged that the lay...
