Seven members of the Limerick Branch of the Amalgamated Society of Carpenters and Joiners were charged with conspiracy against Mr Michael Gough, a master builder, who had refused their demand for higher wages. They were remanded on bail in Co. Clare. Mr Gough’s solicitors have notified the union’s representative that legal proceedings for damages will commence in the High Court. This follows the House of Lords’ recent decision in the Taff Vale case.
