Workshops in research establishments are beset by the persistent problem of high labour turnover. As soon as the tradesman has accumulated sufficient experience in his trade his skills are recognised by private industry with higher wage levels or establishment divisions attract him to the ranks of the technical grades. The career range available for the superior tradesman in research establishment workshops is far too restricted and it is suggested that a range of additional classifications is needed at levels higher than those used in production establishments and related to the Laboratory Craftsman grade used in C.S.I.R.O. This would have a powerful stabilising influence in retaining skilled tradesmen. Author
