Senator MULLAN - That is so. The statement continues -

In my opinion, he is showing preference for work to non-unionists by having a man employed, who, I believe, acted as a special con stable during the general strike of 1912. He worked on the trams since that time until he was taken on at the depot. Statements like these are an injustice to bond fide unionists.

Yours, M. G. Gardiner.

The next statement is signed " James Moy," and is as follows -

Wilston Remount Depot,

Newmarket-road, Nov. 6th. It seems unfair, to my idea of things, to be worked from 0 in the morning until 5 at night, and to have to stop on watch till 12 at night, and to then have it poked at me that any man heard speaking or talking unionism on the premises will be instantly sacked; and more especially so in that certain men get the preference of the work, to the disadvantage of the bulk of the workmen. I am informed that one of these men was sworn in as a special constable in the 1912 strike, and also worked on the trams during the trouble.

I complain thus because I do not think it is fair treatment to conscientious men.

Yours truly, James Moy.

The next statement is from James Wood, and I may say that these four men are speaking for a number of others.


Senator Bakhap - They are in collusion.
