Their view had been that since it was staff grading that was involved, the hourly-rated members were not directly con­ cerned. At the point, however, where the analysis touched on the question of staff salaries in relation to level of work done, the Works Committee reconsidered their position. If progress could be made with respect to the analysis of staff jobs, then it might be useful, they thought, to have an analysis of hourly­ rated members’ jobs as well. This decision was reported by the Secretary of the Works Committee to the Works Council at its meeting in September 1954. He said that the Works Com­ mittee had many problems similar to those discussed by staff, and they would like to be included in any further work done, so that the question of hourly-rated wages could be considered as well.
