Full powers regarding Bumnioning of witnes�e� are conferred on these boards. Until disputes have l>con referred to the board and fully investigated, it is niude an odenoe either to lock out employees or for the mt/n to go on strike. .\fter \Jna board has mode its ro-comincndations, tho parties are free to accept or reject its findings. A special provision makes it an offence for any |>ersoii to incite others to decline or continue a strike or lockout prior to or ]>ending a reference of a dispute to a l>oard of conciliation and invei*tig�tion. It is m�da an olTenco for employers to declare a lockout simply becau.43 an employer employs a non-union man. (Frank Paiw.), Pity the C.P.ll. she is having her troubles those days.
