Big Restart in the Jute Trade

Magdalen GreenGood News For Workers...
It is gratifying to report that a restart of machinery on a large scale is about to be made in Dundee. Some three months ago in Tay Works there was a great reduction of output, the result of which was that fully 600 hands were thrown out of employment.In the interval trade prospects have improved to an extent that steps are being taken to resume working in these departments of the great establishment in question which have been shut down. At the moment operations are in progress, the end of which it is intended, will be that all the departments of the Tay Works will be put in full operation after the conclusion of the summer vacation.
