Exhibition and book captions read - The Australian maritime strike of 1890 spread across the Tasman when a New Zealand ship in Sydney was worked by non-union labour. New Zealand's Maritime Council, affliated to its Australian counterpart, had little option but to call out its men. The first real flexing of union muscles in either country collapsed quickly as rural workers and unpaid 'volunteers' replaced striking seamen and wharf labourers. Subsequently, there was little cooperation between union movements. In fact, unionists were vocal in their disapproval of the rising number of unemployed Australian workers coming to New Zealand.
