Telegram to William Martin Murphy from Sir Charles W. Macara, Grand Hotel, London, regarding the visit of British trade union leaders to Dublin and giving him advice on how to deal with the trade union members, with transcript of message,
|Main Creator:||Macara, Charles W. (Charles Wright), 1845-1929|
Macara informs Murphy that he knows most of the trade union leaders especially Arthur Henderson. Warns Murphy that "recently [Macara] had to stand by cotton operative leaders in connection with breach of discipline on part of some of their members. Had this not been done there might have been general lockout in cotton industry. Syndicatlists are worst enemies of trade union leaders. I am strongly of opinion that employers of labour general must assist official trade union leaders to maintain discipline among rank and file. Should have urged this upon you had we met today".
