Result of Jute Ballot

Courier BuildingAlthough a majority of the jute workers in Dundee have voted in favour of a strike, no immediate strike action is to be taken. Instead an attempt is to be made to open negotiations with the employers with a view to coming to some settlement.This was the decision arrived at, at a joint meeting of the unions of the jute and flax workers, and tenters on Thursday night. The figures of the ballot were not officially disclosed.

It is understood that a two-thirds majority of those voting is required for immediate strike action. Dundee Jute Mill and Factory Operatives’ Union decided against a strike. Eighty per cent of the members voted. The ballot resulted in a 7 to 1 vote against taking strike action.
