HEATH HUiiSm 1 1 ANNUAL mm CF THE LOCAL ASOtslA 110ft Cadoxton Lodge, the picturesque residence of Mr. and Mrs. Coombe- Tennant, was placed at the disposal of the Neath and District Nursing Associa- tion 011 Tuesday aiternoon, for the annual meeting. There was a large attendance of subscribers and workers present, Air. E. L. Evans Thomas, The Gnoll, pre- siding. The report of the general secretary showed that much useful work had been accomplished during the year. In gonerai nursing there had been :H new patients, and nearly 10,000 visitations by the nurses. School treatment and lioale instruction had baen satisfactorily con- ducted. The receipts amounted to £ i/6 lis. 8d., and the expenditure ti43 lis. HId., leaving a balance in hand of A:32 19s. 10d. after commencing the year with a deficit of £30. Subscriptions amounted to glob 8s. Cd., as against £ 137 the pre- vious year, donations £ 78 3s., subvertp- tions rrtfm works and collieries £ 73 6s. 5d., j collections from churches c£:!3 ISs. 6d.. whilst t9t) 2s. 4d. had been. veieivcd from Captain Lindsay, the proceeds of a iootbail match between the County Police and Neath, and C61) 18s. 9d. from the baby show promoted by Mrs. J. E. Moore-Gwyn. Tendency to Slacken Off. I Reviewing the work of the Associa- I tion, the Chairman said there was a general tendency when any organisation was financially successful to .slacken oil a bit, but he hoped that would not be tie case in respect to the Nursing Associa- tion. The greater the support, the greater its accomplishments. lie de- plored the fact that subscriptions had fallen below the average, and he hoped there would be a revival during the coming year. He moved an omnibus vote of thanks, which iiiciudea Captain Lind- say, Superintendent Ben Evans, and In- spector W. liees for promoting the foot- ball match, and Mrs. J. G. Moore-Gwyn. for the baby show. Mr. Walter E. Rees seconded, and the resolution was carried with applause. Resignation. The Chairman announced the resigna- tion of Mrs. Wm. Davies as secretary owing to ill health, ad paid a warm tribute of praise to her zeal and devotion i -? d to say t li:-?t to the work. He wa ghd to say that Mrs. Davies had consented to remain on the Executive Committee, so they would not lose her practical advica and guid- at. :e altogether. (Applause). Mrs. Coombe Tennant, in accordance with notice of motion, proposed that the Executive Committee be increased frot-a 12 to 16. the four new members, which: would be selected by the General Com- mittee, to be representative of the Free Churches, the industrial, municipal, and teaching profession. This was seconded by Mr. Chris Jones, and carried. A vote of thanks was accorded the Chairman on the proposition of the Rector of Cadoxton, seconded by Mr. B. W. Davies, and at the conclusion of the business all present were entertained to tea by Mrs. Coombe-Tennant. j
GLAMORGAN SCHOOLII TEACHERS
GLAMORGAN SCHOOLII TEACHERS. (To the Editor.) Sir,—Is the National Union of Teachers recognised by the Glamorgan Educa- tion Authority? The answer t < the ques- tion is not hard to find. Of che ari ),lS methods of recognition n such as « Con- ciliation Board arrangements or teachers' representatives co-opted on the Authority, I do not propose to dwell. In i fact, of these I dare not hope to write. The teachers dare not ask to he placed (lQ: equal footing, in this respect, with colliers, tinplate workers, steelworkers, carpenters, | masons and labourers. For these belong to the vertebrates, whereas the teachers belong to the invertebrates." The fundamental principle of recogni- tion is practically foreign to all rela- tion between the Glamorgan Education I Authority and their employes—the teachers. Information regarding matters of vital importance to the teachers is with-, held. Their secretary writes for informa- tion on a particular subject and invariably writes in vain. It is true, sometimes, j that his letters are recognised to the extent of acknowledgment of the redeipt of his letters. Are the teachers in the County content to endure this autocratic treat- ment? -Just to give other trades unionists in the County an idea of how their fellow union- ists gain information, as to what happens, affecting teachers generally at meetings of the Glamorgan Education Committee, the teachers have to U pump it out of some sympathetic member of the Education Authority, if one happens to live in heir immediate vicinity. Otherwise they are utterly in the dark as to what has hap- pened. Surely, it is not asking too much from ] the inadequately paid Clerk of the Glamorgan County Council to write to our Federation secretary, giving ir-foi-niation regarding matters respecting a teacher or teachers in the County, when matters of vital importance to them are discussed at Education Committee meetings. Can fellow trades unionists in the County be. lieve that the teachers have been agitat- ing for three years for an improved scale of salaries?; that they have been trying to get a Dew "wage list" to replac-e one brought into operation over ten years ago? What body of trades unionists would still continue to work under a ten-year-old wage list? The teachers have been patiently knock- ing at the door for three years, thinking of a more pleasant future in Home, Sweet Home." whilst from the inside they hear the croaking, melancholv strains of In the Sweet Bye and Bye." Isn't it about time that they should sing a tune more cheerful, that would make the teachers in the County work lnJIr hrp- pier and more congenial conditions? All this delay and apathy on the part of our employers, in granting v.-ii,it is long overdue, is, in my humble opinion, due to the fact thlat the N.U.T. is not recognised by the Glamorgan Education Authority. The sooner the teachers of the County tackle this problem of recognition "—- which ought to have been tackled long ago —the sooner will their grievances in ail matters be redressed. It is very evident that the influence" of the N.U.T. in i Glamorgan affecting the salaries question is of no avail. Is it not time to demon- strate the power of the N.U.T.—Yours etc. Jelly Fish.
