The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 29


page 17


Mr. Tindall proposed—

Mr. Chandler seconded—
"That in the opinion of this Council the time has arrived when we ought to take urgent measures for the total abolition of piecework in the London District, as we consider it detrimental to the interest of the trade, likewise


to our society, and that we consider the steps taken by the E.C. to annul the decision of the London members (given by their representatives at a special delegate meeting convened for that purpose in November last) as injudicious and contrary to the interests of our society."

A lengthy discussion ensued, in which the action taken by the London Branches and the policy pursued by the E.C. were fully reviewed. The debate was eventually adjourned until Saturday morning.
