Whichever Side wins must hold a firm grip on that coveted position. But wests Are battling along in the Wake of these teams and must still be reckoned on As Strong con tenders for second place especially if they win today and centrals lose As these two teams meet next week and in this eventuality would be doing so on an equal Points basis. This season s Competition has been the most oven for years. Although norths have been trailing practically throughout they have Al ways been a dangerous Force and More accurate kicking could easily have shot them into the major round. Recent performances must give centrals the favouritism for today s match.

A ? ? 1 1 ? ? mass meeting of Council employees to consider Council s latest offer there will be a mass meeting of City Council employees of the trades Hall Tomor Row sunday morning at 10.30 o clock to consider Council s latest reply to the log of claims. J As you Are aware. Council j had arranged to Confer with the delegation from your Council and the unions after its Ordinary meeting thursday. Although it was not convenient for your Dele Gates to be present. Council dealt with the correspond ence and gave careful consideration to the various matters on which agree ment has not been reached namely 1. Long service leave. 4. Salary a assistant librarian. 5. Lead Bonus. 9. Sick leave a Staft. 12. Conditions relating to men oft sick. 13. Margins. It was decided that the salary of tile assistant librarian be increased by the same amount As the librarian thus preserving the Dif Ference Between the two salaries As exists at Liu present time. With regard to the other matters. Council regrets thai it cannot increase the Holtery Myhr Ito , of inn. H 1053. And july 25, 1953. In the Case of Long service leave and Lead Bonus it just in t possible to Lind the Money. In the general fund we have an overdraft which we have found impossible to pay oft a at the end of last year it was greater than the previous year. In the Case of the electricity fund we Are unable to pay our Way a some of our. Larger creditors accounts arc three months overdue a this fund also we Piave an overdraft of �35.000 which has been gradually increasing. The Bank has drawn our attention to these matters and in the last two years reports the Audi Tor has commented upon the Drift in Council s finances. It is Clear therefore that even if Council were to agree to the Long service leave and Lead Bonus claims there would be repercussions from both the Bank and the local government department which would necessitate drastic reductions in other expenditure which could Only be achieved by putting men oft. Sick leave a Staft the additions of the right to accumulate sick leave at the rate of one week per year indefinitely after ten weeks had been accumulated represents a definite gain. Holidays for men oft sick this claim seems so unreasonable that i can Only suppose it is due to a mis understanding. Surely there must be some limit placed upon a Man s right to receive holidays. If no time limit is placed on this Concession a Man May be oft for years May indeed never return to work yet he would be entitled to every statutory Holiday which happened whilst he was oft work. The new condition is set out in my letter of june 8, 1953. No other employees in the town receive such a. Concession. I margins Council feels that the offer made in its letter to Grant margins equal to those provided in the state award or the Metal trades award As the Case of . Men provides adequate Protection for All men entitled to margins. I would Point out that the current . State award is Only a new one and includes marginal concessions much greater than those provided in any previous award. Council Hopes that your Council and the unions will i accept the offers now made so that the agreement can be concluded without further delay. Ballot today for Hospital reps.
