IRON & STEEL TRADES.] The Proposed Fusion of Union Societies. i —— An important acheme for confederating v arious unions in the iron and steel in- dustry is under consideration in the West NVales area. and during the coming week the members will be asked to vote upon hhe matter. Since the beginning of the' war negotia- tionshave been taking place between the respective unions with a view to arriv- ing at an agreement whereby their inte- rests could be brought into unison, sec- tionalism with the evils of competition and disputes done away with, and a scheme of future co-operation devised which will ultimately establish one strong united organisation in the industry. It Mt that in the important scheme be- fore the unions they had the means of accomplishing that end. 25,000 MEN AFFECTED. I At present about 25.000 men ar-, om- I ployed in the tinplate trade in South Wales. They are divided into six differ-I put societies, the British Steel Smelters' Association. Dockers' Union, Tin and Sheet Millmen's Association, Gas Workers and General Labourers' Asso?c?intion. Welsh Artisans' Society, and the En- gineers. The millnien alone are members i of four societies, and if t.he suggested amalgamation comes into effect it will bring about the avoidance of duplication of officials, and one union will serve the whole of the unions. PREVENTION OF SECTIONALISM. One of the objects of amalgamation is to prevent sectionalism. There has been a full recognition of the evil, and the failuYe, it is said, to apply the remedy has been largely due to trade unionists quibbling about little details not worth a moment's thought when compared with the important principles involved, and the broad outstanding question of the impera- tive need of unity of trade union effort.
