NEW INDUSTRIAL SYSTEM. Wages Boards to be Reconstituted. Less Delays in Cases. SYDNEY, Sunday. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Observer — 1 January 1917
NEW INDUSTRIAL SYSTEM. . Wages Boards to be Reconstituted. ' Less Delays in Cases. SYDNEY, Sunday. Dealing with the alterations in the Arbitration Act passed through the As s.enibly last session Mr. Garland, Minis ter for Justice, stated it was expected ihe new process would greatly reduce the delay in the present system. While it was not proposed to super f-ode the wag.es boards they would gen (?rally speaking be reconstituted with new judges as chairmen. j The advantage, of the arrangement was that it would be no lnnsrer neMssanr to hear at great length evidence in each ' ase on 'questions common to all. The net result, continued Mr.- Gar-1 !md, ought to be a much speedier set- 1 ilement of disputes and the disappear ance of a, lot of industrial unrest, cie i'.t.ed by the delays which bad been a j feature of the industrial arbitration sys- 1 tern in all stages in the past. ?
