14 February - The AIMU executive meets

On 14 February, the executive of the Agricultural Implement Makers’ Union (AIMU) gathered to consider progress on their call for all Melbourne agricultural implements workers to join the union. Only 42 workers across Melbourne, including 12 men at the Sunshine Harvester Works, had refused to sign up. The executive decided that it now had the numbers to challenge employers over wages and conditions through a strike.
