Political storm brewing Over acc Cooks strike appeals to the Deputy prime minister or Forde to inter Vene in the acc Cooks strike and to order them Back to work on the conditions prevailing before the dispute pending a decision on the matter by arbitration have met with no response from or Ford. It is thought that this May Lead to a political storm in Federal circles. The reply Queensland Federal members received from senator j. S. Collings minister for the Interior whose department controls Allied works Council undertakings was that he not or e. G. Theodore director of Allied works or or g. W. Lavator Deputy director of personnel was responsible for the roster that caused the dispute and he was not going to take any action to end the strike. Titis. Has so incensed Federal and state members of parliament and Union secretaries that if senator col Lings attends the conference of unions with members of the ministry in Melbourne Oil tuesday next he May receive a severe rebuke. Merlc. G. Fallon state Secretary of the Awu said today that he had received a message from Townsville stating that if the strike was not settled by tuesday the acc men there would come out too. Fallon critical or Fallon said that after the con Ference with Federal members yesterday he had sent telegrams to the Deputy prime minister senator Collings and the Federal attorney general Dreval urging that action be taken immediately to Settle the Cooks strike in Accord Ance with the arbitration policy of the government and the labour party. No reply had been received from or Ford. And every Effort to Contact him had been without Success in urging that arbitration be adopted in this Case he meant that the men should be ordered to re sume on the conditions under which they worked before the strike pending tie decision of the court. If this were done he said he was sure the Cooks would resume immediately. As tie result of a Survey of acc jobs he said it was estimated that the amount of work done by members of the acc in the building Trado unions had declined by about 33 percent owing to the discontinuance of proper feeding arrangements. / this slate of affairs could be Ion and waste of Public Money would be avoided if the Federal government or the Deputy prime minister insisted that the men should resume work under the pre strike conditions until their Case was decided in accordance with the Queensland and labour s Industrial code. P or Fallon said that the executive of his Union would meet on tues Day to consider the position a meeting of the ice of the Alp will be held on monday after noon when the business is expected to. Have some reference to the Lack of action on the part of he Federal government to Settle the strike by arbitration. Strike May extend although the building trades group has been doing its utmost to prevent their members in the acc becoming embroiled in the Cooks strike it nov seems probable that unless there is a settlement before tuesday next a big upheaval will. Occur in All Allied works Council undertakings throughout the state. Many building Trade men think that by accepting the bully beef and other food without it being served up by Kitchen staffs they Aro helping to defeat the Cooks and they do not like to appear to be stabbing on them. On the other hand there is a deep rooted opinion amongst some of them that the Issue of the roster has been designed to bring about a general strike so that the acc will be Eble to Clos Down Many projects not so necessary now that the War has moved away. From Australia. And also to escape paying the men for holidays due and the Bonus on completion of their service. The roster trouble arose during the last state elections but pres sure was brought to Bear on the Federal government to allow the old roster to be worked and thus a strike was averted so that it would not prejudice the Chance of labour at the polls. 1 Good reaction to Post War plans London june 2 Aap the City has not found it easy to make up its mind about the govern ment White paper on employment policy but the general trend of opinion in the financial press has been favourable.
