Al- berta Teachers' Association au- mial representative assembly. Trie 460 member assembly approved a resolution urging the provincial government to provide (he necessary [unds to enable school hoard.- IP [inancc early childhood education pro- grams. A resolution calling for closer llason with the Alberta Federa- tion of Labor also passed with little opposition. The resolution stated that af- filiation was not being recom- mended but there should be an avenue "of possible joint aciion In the event the provincial gov- ernment should interfere with the demo cratic bargaining rights of the two organiza- tions." Support was also found for resolutions dealing with Al- berta's natural resources. The resolutions stated that the ATA should make a sub- mission to a provincial govern- ment hearing on natural re- source royalties and lhat sub- mission should advocate in- creased royalties as a means to alleviate part of the cost squeeze on education finance. The ATA also threw its sup- port behind Alberta Indians "in their struggle with the depart- ment of Indian Affairs for edu- cational opportunities which fulfill their particular needs." The assembly called for changes in the County Act which now sees m u n icipal councillors automatically be- come school trustees for the county. The resolution argued lhat county school trustees should be elected, and not assume the duties and responsibilities by virtue of being elected to some other municipal office. "ft is important lhat only people truly concerned with education be charged with this responsibility." The association also changed Its policy regarding teacher pensions. Under the new amendment, a pension without actarial reduc- tion would be payable ot age 55 after M years teaching service. ATA has million budget EDMONTON The Alberta Teachcis' Association budget for IS72 of S2.4 million came out of a five-hour budget de- hate virtually unscathed during the association's annual repre- sentative assembly.
