Transcript CHAPTER V. WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO TRADE UNIONISM ? A.—What has happened to Trade Unionism during the War? 1. Of recent years Trade Unionism has increased considerably in numbers and fighting strength. In 1914 the move- ' ment claimed a membership of over four millions, and exercised real power in the great industries of coal-mining, cotton- spinning and weaving, building, engineering, shipbuildingr the railway service, and in many smaller skilled occupations. In more than one direction, when war broke out, pregnant developments were imminent. 2. The war produced a demand for the suspension of such workshop customs and Trade Union regulations as would in any way limit the greatest possible output of all kinds of "munitions of war." , (a) Trade Unionism patriotically surrendered regulations built up by a century of effort for the protection not only of the Standard. Rate and the Normal Day, but of the elementary rights of combination and freedom to refuse a bad bargain. (b) Further, by the Munitions of War Acts, 1915 to 1917, nearly 4,000,000 workpeople have been prohibited (1) from striking; (2) from leaving their employment without the employer's permission, no matter what the reason (as now amended, from leaving munition-miaking); (3) from disobeying any of the rules of the sihop. Meanwhile, the employer is not bound to find them continuous work or even subsistence, and may dismiss them at a week's notice. Munitions Tribunals enforce the law by fines deducted from wages; Government arbitrators decide absolutely whether advances of wages are to be granted or not; piecework is imposed at arbitrarily fixed rates.
