Representing the same constituency as Olive Wilson, and with an equally favourable opinion of the MAC, is Fred Carter, a well know personality in the rubber factory. He cleans moulds in Dept 341. There were four male candidates for this group of workshops, and he was top of the poll.
“First,” he said, “I would like to thank my fellow-workers for the confidence they placed in me, and to tell them that I shall always do my best to justify it. I can do this to best effect if I have their co-operation by referring to any matter, connected with work, that they think could, or should, be improved or altered in any way.
“During my six years’ service with the Company, I have seen many problems settled, and good things done, because they have been taken up by members of the MAC. I soon realised the MAC was a genuine organisation with the object of maintaining happy and trustworthy relations between management and workers. This it the first time I have offered myself for election, and am naturally pleased at being successful.
“This conviction of effectiveness was confirmed within a month of my service. Olive Wilson and I took two matters which had been referred to us. One has been settled, and the other is under consideration - convincing proof that active interest in the MAC brings results.
FRED CARTER - 1958
