The Randwick Strike TREACHERY OF UNION LEADERS. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 11 March 1916

The Randwick Strike § TREACHERY OF UNION LEADERS. The strike at the Randwick workshops, re ferred to in our last issue, is still going stiong, (at time of writing), despite the on-repeated attempts of Craft Union officials to force ihc boys back to work. Neither threats nor cajolery have availed to break the solidarity of the boys. Officials representing the Unions invol e'd have held conference a'her conference for the past ten days, the result of which invari ably has been a craftily-worded resolution cal- ? culated to induce the boys to return to work r on a somewhat ambiguous promise nf future J consideration of their grievances by the Com- ;j missioner. '-.% To their credit, be it said, the rank and .?'' file of the Unions involved have stood loyally ??; by the boys, and all the scabby and insid i- j ens elicits of Adlcr, Black, McCarthy and Ct , '$| to get them to break the strike, have so far ?'? proved ineffectual. Their efforts reached their climax. last week, when, after a...

The 'Herald's' Milch Cow. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 11 March 1916

The 'Herald's' Milch Cow. The. Sydney press lias boon, working it self into a frantic rage of late on the -iucstion of 'slowing1 clown.' The 'S'merald, ' referring to llio alleged slow down policy adopted by railway employees tells us that 'The Stale may be a line milch cow for lazy folk who have got her into- a paddock of their own; but she has her limitations, and they are being quickly reached even now. ' 'Loans from abroad,' we are told, can not go on for ever, and the tax-payer at home is being brought to the limit of his resources. A sad state of affairs, more especially when we recollect that the 'Herald' is a most patriotic supporter of all War Loan proposals. It is just here, by the way, that we must look for the key to the exceptional violence of the capitalist attack on the 'slow down' advocates just now. The National Debts of nearly all capi talist countries are increasing at such a rate that if the war lasts much longer, by far the largest slice of the nation's output w...

A.M.A. Tactics at Tottenham Bv A. GRAHAM. The. tactics of the A.M. A. (Amalgamated Mugs and Asses) at Tottenham arc doing a good deal towards showing the more intelli gent workers the necessity for the One Big Union, organised on sound lines, as advocated by the I.W.W. Some years ago a branch of the A.M. A. was formed at Tottenham. After a while an alien started working' on one of the. mines. The A.M.Aites told him he must join their union, which he willingly did. He paid his dues regu larly and acted up to all principles oi' the Union, that is, if any principles existed. Sud denly the members decided to strike for bet ter conditions1. The alien applied for strike pay, but was1 informed that the A. II. A. did not issue strike pay to aliens, though they did not mind taking- his dues and levies. Later the mines were closed for several months, and the Union fell to pieces-. * The treasurer took a trip to Sydney; some of the members wanted to know where; their treasure had gone, but the...

A Question and the Reply. To 'Direct Action.' As a worker who up till lately has been an out and out supporter of political action, I crave your indulg-euce !for the purpose of ask ing- a question wliich when asked at one of your meetings was treated with derision. The said question in short is, viz., 'What form shall the controlling- body take in the event of the I.W.W. succeeding- in its objects?' Now, I have asked that question of various members of your organisation, and have in variably been told that that phase has not been considered. Admitted I am not educated in your philosophy, but for the life of me I fail to sea how you are g'oing- to hold the ground gained if you do not expound some sane and reasonable theory which will be the ultimate end in view. Not being able to attend your meetings I am rather at a disadvantage, and for my information I have to rely on pamphlets and such information as some of your com rades-impart in conversation.

The Coming Demand for Industrial Unionism [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 11 March 1916

The Coining Demand for Industrial Unionism By A. MACK. In spite of an age-long trial of craft unions, politicians and arbitration courts, the working class is slipping surely down the social stair way into an abyss of degradation, which bids fair to land them in a poverty never yet touched by the world's workers. Thus far the toiling classes, heeding' the i.ninn nttirrii'; inrl nnlii irians. have viewed with terror the propaganda of the Industrial Union pioneers, who are, in all the continents., being blandered and persecuted by labor parasite.' And other flunkeys of the master class. These condemn and oppose the One Big Union idea, allegedly because it will have a damaging ef fect upon the great Labor movement, though in reality their opposition is based -upon a consideration for their own economic positions, since they know the formation of the Indus trial Unions presages the loss of the easy, well-paid jobs so plentiful under the craft organisations. Plute bitterly opposes it, be...
