Labour Relations: At the Pomona Docks on the Manchester Ship Canal in England, the steamship SS Hare is stranded with a cargo of guinness bound for London (from Dublin)  after english dockers refuse to unload the cargo, in solidarity with their locked-out comrades in Dublin. Eventually a deal is reached that the vessel will be unloaded provided that it is then used to transport a cargo of food back to Dublin in support of the locked-out workers, a gift from the Congress of British Trade Unions.
