British Operators Demand Big
Increase and Better Work
ing Conditions
LONDON, June 15. A strike of ma
rine wireless operators was declared
this morning by the Association of
Virelo3S Telegraphists. The men de
mand an Increase in wages of ap
proximately ISO per cent over the pre
war rates and also better conditions
of employment.
'Operators on ships are Instructed
to cease work when their voyages
end and not to sign for further trips.
Wireless operators who work on
shore permanently are not affected by
the strike.
One of the most serious effects of
the strike forecast is tho holding up
of shipping and consequent conges
tion in the ports. Under the board of
trade regulations all ships of more
than l.COO tons must carry wireless
operators.
Among the ships which may be de
layed Is the Maurexanla, due to leave
Southampton Saturday.
The association demands from the
Mai'conl company a minimum wage
of 2 pounds 1G shillings a week for
qualified men, rising to 7 pounds 14
'shillings after nine years of service.
