Mr. Harvey said the ww agreement was much xnnpkx but more com "The agreement will aff Lfthbridge employer mure pro- tection because he is not as big as the Calgary employers and does not have as much work. "There will be very little trouble for men transferring or working in other areas of the province. If they work in "Cal- gary, they will be paid Cal- gary union rates and if they work in other parts of south Al- berta, they will be paid Leth- bridge rates, a difference of about 33 cents per hour. "Perhaps the best thing to come out of the negotiations is the better understanding be- tween the employers and the union.. The employers are just rs happy as the unon because they wanted all of the 'things signed in the agreecceot in order to work towards i prov- ince vide agreement next time. Mr. Harvey sad this was the reason he pushed so hard for a five month negotiation period or the next agreement. "If we jo to the province wide agree- ment next time like everybody appears to want, there is a hit of talking to do." Mr. Harvey said he has man- aged 'to ratify three agreements n the past few weeks and the Lethbridaja agreement was the most successful of then alL :We went from practically nothing to match the Calgary union contract and this was all done n just two days of nego- tiation."
