Arthur MacNamara. deputy labor minister, said be expected to hear from the union representatives later and meantime no further con- ferences were scheduled. Settlement of the strike as it affects transport department ships will mean crews will return, to work on live government shins in Mont- real. Halifax and Saint John.
