War Economy

A New Waterfront Award

A New Waterfront Award

The Waterfront Commission took immediate steps to settle the question of the award. A new wage order came into force in June 1940. The hourly rate of pay was raised by twopence, and the provision for minimum payments was made more favourable to the workers. The bureau system was extended and other changes made in work conditions. These changes seem to have been accepted as generally satisfactory by both the parties concerned.
