The Hawke's Bay Employers' Association

The Hawke's Bay Employers' Association is affiliated to the New Zealand Employers' Federation, and was established in the year 1902, to watch over and protect the interests of employers. The immediate cause of its foundation was the placing upon the Statutes of the Colony a large number of labour laws that the employers regarded as unreasonably prejudicial to their interests; but since the inception of the Association a number of legislative proposals have been modified at its instigation. The annual subscription ranges proportionately according to the number of persons employed by each member, the highest figure being £3 3s. The membership of the association is about 120. Officers for the year 1906: Messrs D. A. Baxter (president), R. D. D. McLean and P. Dinwiddie (vice-presidents), George Nelson (treasurer), and Captain Tonkin (secretary). There is also an executive committee of twenty-four.
