HC Deb 01 December 1920 vol 135 c1271W

asked the Minister of Transport when he proposes to instruct the railway companies to apply definitely to the supervisors, foremen, and inspectors controlling men who are in the 12A per cent, bonus or workshop section of railways the terms of the agreement now applying to the supervisors over the men in the conciliation section of railways?


The supervisory staff in railway shops have already been granted revised scales of pay comparable with the agreed scales applicable to the other supervisory staff employed by the railway companies, and the companies would be prepared, if desired, to consider any proposals for a revision of conditions of service that might be presented jointly by agreement among the several bodies who claim to represent these men.
