DOMESTICS ORGANIZE UNION
TO SERVE ULTIMATUM
Calgary, Can., June 20. A union
for domestic servants is the latest
development here. An ultimatum
that Calgary maids will presents to
their prospective mistresses when
they answer advertisements, "Maids
Wanted," is in course of preparation.
It includes a 10-hour day, a mini
mum wage of $15 a month and pay
ment of 15 cents an hour for all over
time. The by-laws provide that the
"housekeeper," as it is stipulated the
maids are to be called,- will wear a
uniform, master a course in. domestic
science and have a suitable room one
evening a week in which to entertain.
"Mary Ann" will no longer resound
throughout the house. Instead,
when the mistress wants to speak to
the maid she will have to address her
as "Miss Smith," or whatever else
her name may be.
These are a few of the more sa
lient reforms that will, if the scheme
works as its promoters hope, lift do
mestic service from the monotonous
level of unending drudgery to the
plane of a skilled profession.
The new plan, which it is expected
will be introduced shortly in the
U. S., resulted from a conference of
Calgary trades union officials, Y. W.
C. A. girlsi advanced preachers and
two or three radical society women.
Under the new plan, both employ
er and employe will be required to
sign agreements which provide for
all the reforms the domestics plan
to put in force.
