Id the Otago and Southland Industrial District. — No. 64. — In the

Moulders' Union of New Zealand and the Engineers and
Founders of Otago.

The detail dispute between the abovenamed union and A. and T.

and having heard both parties to the dispute, I find that no
arrangement exists for extra work in the moulding-shop of that firm
for work done after 5 o'clock being reckoned as time to make up for
the Saturday afternoon, in terms of the provisions of clause 1 of
the said agreement, and that all time worked beyond eight hours
per day should be paid for as overtime.
