asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has considered the memorandum from the Jamaica Government Railway Employees Union dealing with the conditions of labour on the railway; and what it is intended to do to improve these conditions and to create a happy relationship between the Government and the railway workers?
I have not received the memorandum referred to. I am asking the Governor to furnish a copy with his comments.
Has the trade union in question the same negotiating machinery out there as we have in this country?
I would not say that it is exactly the same, but there is a big trade union movement in Jamaica.
