Architects, Builders and Engineers Builders Laborers' Federal Award HOW N.S.W. MASTER BUILDERS VIEW IT [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 12 January 1914

Architects, Builders and Engineers Builders Laborers' Federal Award HOW N.S.W. MASTER BUILDERS VIEW IT A CRITICISM BY PRESIDENT G. P. JONES. Jun. Friday last was the first day under the award of the Federal Arbitration Court in the case of the Builders Laborers' Federation. The viewpoint of Victorian Master Builders is expressed on another page. President G. P. Jones, jun., of the N.S.W. Master Builders' Association, has supplied the fol lowing criticism from the N.S.W. standpoint: ''The award came as a great surprise to the em ployers and possibly to the employees also,' he said, 'as it eives to men emuloved bv the resnond ents in New South Wrales all they asked for in the way of increased wages and reduction of hours. The award made the minimum wage J/-.U, and re duced the hours to -14 per week, the wages thus being an increase of 37* per cent, over the rates paid to the general builders' laborers up to the beginning of November. 'The peculiar feature of this award is that the Sta...

PETROL AND STREET CLEANING. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 12 January 1914

PETROL AND STREET CLEANING. I raction is mainly petrol nowadays in Great Britain, and municipalities have adopted it to an extraordinary degree,' said Councillor Russell, of Hawthorn Council (V.), who was recently there. 'Whether Australian cities would care to incur the additional expense I do not know, but it would possibly be beneficial to the community, and in course of time save money, if the road vacuum cleaner, road roller sweeper, dust lorries, and Avater carts, all driven by petrol, Avere introduced. The road vacuum cleaner is a beautifully adjusted en gine. It can take up large rubble or fine dust as desired, and macadam roads arc not harmed by its action, as [ imagined would be the case.'

IS THE WORKMAN BETTER OFF? The Case of the Carpenter. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 12 January 1914

IS THE WORKMAN BETTER OFF? The Case of the Carpenter. 'The freedom of the individual is no more, but is he any worse oft' because of that?' No attempt will be made to supply the answer just now (says a country correspondent). But for a moment look at the circumstances which produce the question. They are explained in this way. But a few years back a carpenter looking for work, having found a boss who -wanted a man, would argue terms Avith him. The carpenter would endeavor to get as good a Avagc as he Avas able, and the would-be employer Avould pay no more than he was compelled to pay. If carpenters Avere freely oftenng at the particular moment, the master would probably have the best of the argument; if they Avere scarce, the man Avould prevail. If the carpenter had the reputation of being a first-rate tradesman, he Avould probably get more than the average wage paid to his class ; if he were indifferent, he would probably haAre to be content with less. Freedom of contract Avas the ...

IS IT VALID? THAT FEDERAL LABORERS' AWARD JUSTICE HIGGINS' UNCERTAINTY A REMARKABLE SITUATION. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 12 January 1914

IS IT VALID ? THAT FEDERAL LABORERS' AWARD JUSTICE HIGGINS' UNCERTAINTY A REMARKABLE SITUATION. Straight Talk by Master Builder Langford, President Master Builders' Association, Victoria. (Special to 'Construction.') MASTER BUILDER C. LANGFORD. President Master Builders' Association. Victoria. 'The Australian Master Builders have just emerged from a struggle with the laborers, and the award contains so many anomalies that it will not be surprising to find it break down with the weight . of its own absurdities. 'One has only to glance through the clauses to note how they bristle with unworkable recommen dations. ' ''Take clause 1. There is a distinction imme diately established between the laborers employed by the builders cited, only 44 out of about 1200 in Victoria, and by laborers employed by the other 1156. The laborers with the former are to get more wages and shorter hours than those employed by the latter. The unworkableness of this arrange ment can be well understood. 'The ju...

BUILDERS' LABORERS A Significant Attitude. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 19 January 1914

BUILDERS' LABORERS A Significant Attitude. An architect writing elsewhere in this issue relates a somewhat significant attitude adopted by the builders' laborers working on a certain Sydney job. The day was Saturday, and the Builders Laborers' Federal Award came into operation on the previous day. Everyone seemed to have the impression that the 4-i-hour week applied imme diately, instead of having'been* postponed for three months. The builders' laborers, as a consequence, reckoned that they were not called upon to work the half-dav on Saturday. But the bricklayers and other fellow unionists on the job, who were bound by the -IS-hour agreement, wanted to know what they would do if their laborers knocked off. Then came the significant attitude of the builders' laborers. They agreed to work the 48-hour week until the conclusion of the contract, because, they said, that agreement was in force at the commence ment of the contract. It should, therefore, be car ried out to the end. All fre...

"PASSING IT ON." [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 19 January 1914

'PASSING IT ON.' N.S.W. master builders see no reason why they should not pass on wage increases in accordance with the general custom. If the vociferous 'milk-o' join a union and get his wages increased, his employer does not suffer the loss. He passes it on — more often than not with a wee drap more — to the consumer. The small man with the large family starts an agitation and gets his wage further advanced. So it goes on, and on and on. The master builders don't exactly see why they should be altogether out of it. Thus it is that one often hears at their meetings arguments in favor of a clause in the contract providing for all wage increases during the currency of the work, being passed on. But the cases of the master builder and the 'milk-o' are scarcely analagous. Mr. Brown— a strong advocate of 'passing it on' . — failed to recognise this fact in a recent speech to members of the Association. He argued that the seriousness of the continued wage increases would never be recogni...

Architects, Builders and Engineers £20,000,000 IN 18 MONTHS. Frenzied Finance in N.S.W. Public Works. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 19 January 1914

Architects, Builders and Engineers £20,000,000 IN 18 MONTHS. Frenzied Finance in N.S.W. Public Works. With a record of having borrowed and, for the most part, squandered £.20,000,000 in less than eighteen months, the N.S.W. Labor Government went to the country — and was returned. Some are now claiming the victory a direct endorsement of Labor's manner of financing, since finance was made a prominent issue of the elections. Such political libertines as Griffith endorse the policy to 'keep on spending,' but there is to be leckoned with W. A. Hohnan, tactician and leader. He must recognise full well that with a better finan cial record the Labor victory would have been over whelming, as events have turned out. The balance of disaffected Liberals who voted Labor previously, being disgusted with the inanition of their own party, decided on this occasion to give the Government another chance. If it spends in the future as it has done in the past, its downfall is at once sealed. But are ta...

The Steel Frame Building Where Melbourne Scores Just Now MOVE ON—SYDNEY! [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 19 January 1914

The Steel Frame Building Where Melbourne Scores Just Now MOVE ON— SYDNEY! Melbourne leads Australian ? cities in its steel iramc buildings. The reason for Sydney's backwardness is ex plained by its out-of-date building act. Yet there is no gainsaying that Melbourne architects have grasped the steel frame problem in a way that has done them credit. Moreover, they have set an example for emulation by their professional con freres of other States. There is so much to be said in favor of steel frame building from every point of view that it is ?M-iciugc we uiivc uui iiiuic ui 11 lii'rvusLraiiuii'.ciLica and towns. There are some splendid examples of this form of, construction going on in Melbourne at present. For instance, in Flinders Lane, Master Builder Shillabeer (under Architect Nahum Barnet) has a fine structure in hand. It is now up to the third storey, and the interlocking girders and stanchions make a fine constructional picture. The building is replacing one recently destroyed ...
