Phone mother Brown's TAKE HOME FISH CHIPS Outside city workers, repre- sented by Local 70, Canadian Union of Public Employees, were expected to vote this after- noon overwhelmingly in favor of strike Union members roef last night in the Labor Club where they were informed in detail of what had transpired in negotia- tions for a new contract. A strong vote for strike action will give the union's bargaining committee a little more weight in negoliations. i Tile union had indicated il hopes to reach a settlement through mediation. A strike can be held any time within a year after today's vole providing the city is given two days notice of intentions to strike. CUPE is the largest union representing city employees. Besides the lis full-time and 100 casual outside city workers, il also represents more than 9C city -hall office staff and smaller groups like library em' ployees and police matrons. While strike action has been approved in the past the city has never been struck as far as city hall employees can recall The outside workers unit o Local TO is composed of ma chine operators, truck drivers laborers, meter readers, garb- age collectors, carpenters, sign painters, pipe layers, street dig gers, parks and recreation per sonnel such as gardeners au caretakers, and several othe classifications of "outside workers. The union was offered wag increases amounting to abou 9K per cent a year for Iw years by a conciliation officer jut the membership rejected the award. One of the main rea- sons given for rejecting the award was the imparity in fringe benefits between city union and non-urJon employees. The city maintains non-union employees are entitled to better triage, benefits because they do not have the job security union members have and they do not receive overtime pay. The union says the higher salaries paid non-union em ployees is sufficient and that fringe benefits should be the same for all employees. The city electrical workers and the city both rejected a con- ciliation officer's award and the electrical workers have applied for a strike vole. No date had been set by the government for the vole although it is expected to be held within the next 10 days. Imparity in fringe bene- fits was one of the major rea- sons the union rejected the award. Negotiations with other city unions hn; prelty well come to a slaodslill. Business Is expect- ed to pick up after today's strike vote. In some cases gov- ernment conciliators have not set dates to resume proceed- ings. Government May Ease Up On Funds For Education By JIM WILSON He rah) Education Writer CALGARY Alberta Edit- ation Minister Robert Clark told some 450 teachers here here is soxa possibility thai he department's firm stand on he maximum per cenl in- lalichary escalation factor in foundation grants funds will'be softened from the original: eachers will likely be asked to appoint representatives to a special committee which will nake recommendations on the uicrease for 1971. The ATA will also be !or representation this fall on another government committee that will oversee the "lighl- house projects" funds available through the Foundation Pro- gram for cost snaring special education experiments. Mr. Clark acknowledged the ATA's "strong representation" in most educational activities in Ihe province, saying they had a "particular way of making their advise rather forceful." Mr. Clark spent about two lours after his speech answer- Jig questions from the assem- bly delegates, most of which concerned the new school act's requirement that school boards seek funds above a certain level through local plebiscites, which some teachers termed a "ret- rogressive and dangerous step in Alberta's education system." -Mr. Clark replied that he wasn't necessarily happy with everything the department has ted to do concerning education finance, "but no matter what anyone says, acd no mailer how anyone looks at it, we sim ply are not going to be able to afford lo have the costs of edu cation continue to escalate as they have over the past few years." He said one alternative I taking extra fund requests ti plebiscite would be to "beef up the Local Authorities Board" Finance Cut Has Advantage Says President Of -ASTA CALGARY (Staff) -If. the cui-renf cutback in education inance does nothing more than ores educators lo slop and lake a look at what they are doing, Npw Manager At Manpower The new manager of Canada Manpower's Lethbridge office replacing A.
