AFTER WAR PROBLEMS Soldiers and Work - Remark by Judge Heydon
"I have been greatly exercised over the prospect of returning soldiers," said Mr. Justice Heydon in giving his decision in an application in the Industrial Court to-day for a variation of the award of the iron and snip Building Trades Group No. 1 Board, so as to allow John Heine and Son to employ two apprentices to one journeyman, instead' of one to one as stipulated in tho award. "What the effects of the war will be," proceeded the judge, "It is difficult to forecast. People of the greatest experience and knowledge seem to be at a loss, and it is apparently a matter of guess-work. I do not know whether statistics have been kept, but I suppose, that the men who have volunteered for the front have been drawn in fairly equal proportions from all classes of tho community. And if that is so, then there is a miniature Australia ' at the front— a certain proportion of engineers, of bricklayers, of men of all the different trades as well as men of clerical pursuits. I have seen it stated that - one-third of the officers of the Bank of New South Wales have gone to the front. "There are also a . certain number of young men who are looking forward. to professional careers," he continued. "Many of these men will return to the community. And every, man. who comes back will not only do work, but he will make work for others. He has to be kept; he will consume food; he .will require clothing, housing. All these matters will have to be attended to, so' that returned soldiers will make work as well as do it. It may be that the returned soldiers will create a demand for more men than can be supplied. To some extent that might take place, but whether we will be overcrowded by, returned soldiers or not, I do not think these extra apprentices, of themselves, will be an important factor."The application was granted.

BACK TO WORK
MEN TURN TO THIS MORNING 44-HOURS AT REDUCED PAY DISPUTES COMMITTEE TO MEET TO-DAY
Machinery clanged, managers buckled down to detail, workshops grew busy again this morning. ' The 44-hours strike was over. . ' ' Sydney men will now work a shorter week, even if they receive smaller wages.
REPORTS from representative firms show that the men had turned up to work, with willing hands, and that some of the Industrial stagnation had ended. Employers' associations bad received no reports, but it was felt that no news was good news, and that the resumption had occurred smoothly. There are naturally some laggards. Men put of work by Industrial disputes have always taken advantage of enforced idleness by making a holiday out of it. Managers have received word that some men will not be back tor a few days — they were in the country. Some trouble over re-employment in the coachmaking industry occurred.
The secretary of the Union (Mr. .T. Flanagan), who went round the shops this morning at starting time, said later: — "In many cases the fair-minded employers stood up faithfully to the decision arrived at, and took the employees on again on the same conditions as prevailed prior to the dispute. "Others through a misunderstanding or a desire to impose their own conditions, have refused to employ a number of their employees. "The matter will be referred to the Disputes Committee." The Disputes Committee to-day will hear further reports from delegation from the B.H.P. Steelworks, where the employees have been dismissed for refusing to work the 48 hours. The 44-hour week, as it affects the whole of the Commonwealth, will be considered to-day by the whole of the Commonwealth Labor Councils. Mow South Wales will be represented by Messrs. Falkingham and Garden. During Mr. Garden's absence in Melbourne, Mr. E. C. Crow (Food Preserving Employees) will act as secretary of the Disputes Committee.
"The settlement of the dispute means that the men wish to take half a day's holiday a week at their own expense," said the president of the Metal Trades Employers' Association (Mr. John Heine) to-day. "As far as that goes, it was always open for a man to stay away a day at his own expense. In that way it can hardly be said that the principle of a 44-hour week bus been conceded! One small section of employers could not determine that. It is still a matter for the court when the new Federal Arbitration Court decides the claims.
"We are very glad to see that Mr. Baddeley recognised it was a Federal matter. Our association has registered with the Federal court, and we Intend to secure awards for all workers In the metal trades. The decision of the High Court about the Federal awards being supreme over the State has caused us to adopt that policy. It was evident that one authority only should rule. Even if the proposed referendum were not carried in the Prime Minister's favor the Federal court awards would remain supreme. Our association, and presumably others, would see that the awards were made by that court, putting in our own claims and not waiting for the men to present their logs."
