Jim Larkin and the 1913 Lockout!.

Jim Larkin.

Dublin 10th Novermber 1915 – A serious new dispute between dockers and employers in now threating to end in renewed strike action in Dublin.

The City of Dublin Company has refused the demands of dockers for wage increases and the response from the Carters is to decline to handle material from the company’s boats.
The Employer’s Federation met to discuss the question yesterday and have recommended that the Carters be locked out.
The employment of up to 3,000 men is at issue in the dispute, with negotiations now being undertaken to seek a resolution.

A new Lockout in Dublin? A loading wharf on the Liffey. All work along the quays has stalled as a result of his new dispute.

The threatened lockout comes as reports from Amercia claim that Jim Larkin, the leading personality of the 1913 Lockout, is ‘down on his luck’. Larkin has ended up in dispute with certain sections of Irish America, leading him to be described in one paper as a ‘base, intolerant, perverted, fuming, raving, ranting hypocrite’.
