Those Medical Certificates. RHYMNEY RAILWAYMEN KICK ACAINST OLD COMPLAINT. That old railway trouble breeder the com- pany regulation requiring tlw production of a, medical certificate by employees who have been absent for more than a month through sickness which is generally taken to mean (by the man- agements) examination by company medicoes, has brought about a disturbing situation be- tween the Rbymney Railway Company* and its Cardiff employees. It was, it will be remem- bered, just this trouble that caused the trouble on the Swansea line at the outset of the recent railway strike. A meeting of the N. U .R. Joint Committee on Sunday morning, held at the Rus- kin Institute, Cardiff, went into this cause of friction and decided to give their members every support in their fight against the demand for attendance before the company doctor, and the practice of "degrading" which it is contended usually follows a protracted illness. In the evening a mass meeting of railwaymen was held in Cory 'Hall to deal with the same question, and the report afterwards given to the Press stated that Very strong feelings of re- sentment have been expressed for some time against the men being compelled to undergo a medical examination by the company's doctor in addition to supplying a certificate from their own doctor. The men contend that as their own doctor is a qualified medical practitioner his cer- tificate should be sufficient without the men being put to the inconvenience of attending be- fore the company's doctor. That feeling came to a climax by the calling of this meeting, and a very strong stand was taken by the mem against the continuance. of this practice, and it was de- cided to appoint a deputation to meet Mr. E. A. grosser, general manager, to-morrow morning for the purpose of getting the practice immedi- ately stopped." kho-
