The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 69

Timaru, 21st January, 1891. Mr. W. G. Aspinall, Secretary Canterbury Millers' Association

page 14

Mr. W. G. Aspinall,

Secretary Canterbury Millers' Association.

Dear Sir—Our Delegates have returned from their mission throughout this Island, interviewing all master millers and managers of mills, and in every case they found employers ready to adopt the eight hours system, provided it is universal. We most respectfully suggest to you as a means of settling the question finally, that the Canterbury Millers' Association co-operate with the Otago and Southland Millers' Association, and appoint (say) two, three, or live delegates with power to settle the matter: to meet a similar number from this Society, at any time or place you might mention. We would also suggest that the Conference take place as early as possible in view of the busy season being close at hand. We may state that this mode of settlement is at the suggestion of the majority of employers.

I am, yours faithfully,

David Orme,

General Secretary.
