We are in receipt of protests from three local unions of Electrical Workers, against the credentials of F. J. McNulty, Peter Collins, Stephen J. Fay, F. J. Sweek and M. S. Culver, the protests based on charges preferred against the International officers. Evidence is furnished in the form of minutes of a so-called special convention called for the purpose of investigating the conduct of said officers. The protest does not bear the seal of the Electrical Workers' International Brotherhood, and in view of the fact that the credentials furnished by the aforesaid gentlemen conform in every particular to the laws of the American Federation of Labor, we therefore recommend that the aforesaid gentlemen be seated, as representing the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers' of America, with 321 votes.
We have received credentials from the Operative Plasterers' International Association for John Donlin, Peter G. Cook, James O'Connor and John G. Twyford, as delegates to this convention. They are not entitled to seats, however, in view of the fact that charter has not yet been granted to this Association.
We have credentials for T. W. Rowe, from the Ohio State Federation of Labor; J. F. Tobin, from the Muncie, Indiana, Trades Council; W. W. Davies, of the Belmont County, Ohio, Central Trades and Labor Council, and Frederick Shane, from the Toledo, Ohio, Central Labor Union. These gentlemen are members of the American Flint Glass Worksers' Association, and we recommend that they be not seated as delegates, our rec
ommendation based on section 5 of article 4 of the Constitution of the A. F. of L., as follows: No organization or person that
has seceded, or has been suspended, or expelled by the American Federation of Labor, or by any national or international organization, connected with this Federation, shalı, while under such penalty, be allowed representation or recognition in this Federation, or in any Central body or national or international union connected with the American Federation of Labor, under the penalty of the suspension of the body violating this section.
Credential Committee. Vice-President Duncan moved the adoption of the report of the committee. The motion was seconded by Vice-President Mitchell.
Delegate Reid, of the Electrical Workers, discussed briefly the question of the contesting delegations from that organization.
Vice-President Duncan withdrew his motion that the report of the committee be adopted, and moved that the part of the report of the committee dealing with uncontested delegates be adopted, and the subject-matter of the balance of the report be taken up by the Convention. (Seconded.)
Delegate Rowe, of the Ohio State Federation of Labor, moved as an amendment that the report of the committee be adopted; that the delegates recommended by the committee be seated, and that delegates whose seats were contested be given a voice when their respective cases were considered. (Seconded.)
The question was discussed briefly by Delegates Reid, Kemper and McNulty.
The amendment offered by Delegate Rowe was adopted, and the original motion, as amended, was adopted.
President Gumpers--The chair will appoint, subject to the approval of the Convention, Frank J. Pulver, of the International Typographical Union, No. 49, of Denver, to act as assistant to the Secretary; as Sergeant-at-Arms, S. G. Fosdick, of the Hotel and Restaurant Employers' International Alliance, and as Assistant and Messenger, Oliver Guiney, of the Brotherhood of Boilermakers and Iron Ship Builders. Appointments concurred in.
The question of the contesting delegations of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers was discussed by Delegate Reed and Vice-President O'Connell.
Vice-President O'Connell moved that a special committee of five be appointed by the President to hear both sides of the controversy and report back to the convention. (Seconded.)
President Gompers-Some time ago, when Vice-President O'Connell, Secretary Morrison and myself were meeting in Washington as a sub-committee of the Executive Council, Mr. Reed and two of his colleagues were present and undertook to lay before us the the cause of the controversy between himself and the gentlemen he represented and the officers of the Electrical Workers. We had not time then to listen to the statement, but at our suggestion there was some agreement reached that the representatives of the Brotherhood as represented by Mr. Reed and the representatives of the Brotherhood, as represented by Mr. McNulty, should meet at Denver,
and that either the Convention or the Executive Council or the President would meet with the representatives of both contending sides and endeavor to reach amicable adjustment of the controversy existing.
The chair in making this statement
would suggest that the mover of the motion enlarge it so that the committee may also undertake to help adjust the controversy.
Vice-President O'Connell-I accept the suggestion.
The question was discussed by Delegate Collins, Delegate Reed and Delegate McNulty.
The motion offered by Vice-President O'Connell was carried by unanimous vote.
Delegate Parmer, of the Laundry Workers, stated that there were seven hundred laundry workers in Denver, but only seventy-five of that number were in the local of the Laundry Workers. She requested that all delegates while in Denver patronize only those laundries where union help was employed.
Secretary Morrison-As the hour for adjournment has arrived, and as the balance of the report of the Committee on Credentials will probably cause considerable discussion, I move that further discussion on the
made a special order of business after the reading of
the reports of the President, Treasurer and Secretary and the appointment of committees.
The motion was seconded and carried, and the convention was adjourned 2 p. m.
