Sir your petitioners respectfully represent that since you cannot know All the embarrassing facts incident to our employment we deem it but fair to you and just to ourselves to present this statement. The average Day of motor men and conductors is seventeen to eighteen hours on our motors our time for meals is fifteen minutes. We Start out at 6 a. Xii. And run indefinitely toll and 12 p. In. We Are dotted if we lose an hour in this indeterminate and elastic Day. The physical Man cannot and does not endure the Strain and a Day taken for recuperation is lost to the Over fatigued worker therefore he does not draw his full pay and often Falls Short of receiving $40 per month. Of he holds to his place his exhaustion of body and the dullness of sleepiness invites danger to the Public to the company and to the employee. If a new Ani inexperienced Man is placed in charge of the motor the invariable Rule is the burning of the switch boxes loss of time by stoppage on the entire line for fifteen minutes or More possibly an hour or More complaint from patrons and loss to the company. Nine tenths of the accidents and wreckage can be traced directly or indirectly to the weakened mental and physical condition of motor men who have stood on their motors Day after Day endeavouring to make a full month s wages nature reaches her limit and a few seconds of oblivious fatigue suffice to wreck a car. New men Are taken on one Day to be instructed in the handling of a motor the following Day they Are often Given the Complete control of a motor. They w ill run the motor As an inexperienced Man Only can trusting to Luck to carry him safely through the Day. He is in Complete ignorance of the Strong or weak parts of his motor the track is an unsolved problem also the trolley wire the motor is put in motion no reduction in Speed is Given for Good or bad track his motor runs off the track causing loss of time extra labor and loss of passengers or the trolley leaves the trolley wire and a trolley pole is broken and the conductor is made to pay for same. You or. President May not be aware of some of the facts but there have been As Many As three motors turned out to one Man in a single Day s run All regular motor men who have regular motors take Pride and pleasure in keeping their motors in Good running order and often consume the few minutes they have for rest at the end of each line in rectifying any slight defect in the smooth working of their machines. We As the conductors and motor men who have regular runs make this City our Homes. We earn our Money and wish to spend it Here Many of us expecting to give years of our lives to the company while a single Day Man is Only anxious to get a few dollars ahead and leave the City for other Fields of labor and the record he leaves is one or More motors so crippled that they have to be run into the shops for repairs. We. Therefore suggest this remedy. Give us a Day of twelve hours both for motor men and conductors the first to be paid forty five and the latter fifty dollars per month for additional hours allow us fifteen cents per hour and when in Case of emergency a Crew keeps ther car overtime they shall be paid fifteen cents per hour for All Over twelve hours any time Over 15 minutes to go for an hour Relief Crews to be allowed the same and to be ready when regulars go off. That All new and inexperienced men be turned Over to a thoroughly competent motor Man who will instruct him in his duties no Man to be Given a motor until he has at least six Day s instruction and not then unless pronounced competent by his instructor. Promotions to be governed by length of service faithful performance of duty and ability. Feeling assured that you will give this your prompt attention we Are conductors j. H. White c. It. Brown h. O.
