World war One, Mannix, IWW and Conscription
It is commonly claimed that much of the opposition to conscription was due to the agitation of Mannix, it is questionable if this is so. Notably respected Australian labour histroian Ian Turner question it in his "Industrial Labour and Politics in Eastern Australia 1900-1921" questioned it, according to Turner more catholics voted for conscription in Mannix's home city of Melbourne than in Sydney. So it is hard toa rgue that Mannix had any effect. Maybe he had an unintentional pro-conscription effect! According to Turner farmers worried about labour shortages were a more significant source of "conservative" opposition to conscription. The Mannix factor is part of the folklore of the anti-conscription battle but if it is to be claimed as part of its history then a positive citation is needed. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 05:24:24, August 19, 2007 (UTC)
Union membership halved in 20 years: ABS
I hit this article hoping to find out what people mean when they describe a union as "militant". I'm none the wiser. It would be helpful if it could be defined or linked through. It seems to me it's a pejorative term used by the anti-union movement to describe effective unions.--Russell E (talk) 10:56, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
