Mr. LOGAN.

This section provides that each party to the dispute may choose an arbitrator, and if the two arbitrators cannot agree on the third, the choice of the third will be left to the minister. But in cases of dispute on the Intercolonial Railway that would give an unfair advantage to the government. The men would choose one of the arbitrators, the Minister of Railways would choose another, and in case these two could not agree, the Minister of Labour would choose the third. So that the government would have the choice of two of the arbitrators and the men would only have the choice of one.

Topic:   SETTLEMENT OF RAILWAY LABOUR DISPUTES.
