Local Scots Enjoy Breath Of Spring FL President Speaks To Union Members Labor Act Opposition Voiced By R1C SWIHART HtraU Staff Writer The Alberta Federation of jibor agrees with many of the tousekeeping amendments to Alberta Labor Act but rcngly disagrees with sec- cos 99 and 100, Hoy Jamha, resident of the AFL toM the .ethbridge and District Labor Council last night. He said the government is de- to broaden the scope Die ad to cover more people y changing Lite life a: properly affected by a strike to ife, property or Ihe vital needs of the public. "The people we are talking to the legislature have refused move even after consider- ie pressure from the labor movement but they did remove K word vital from the clause wt then added the condition extreme privation or human suffering caused by stoppages in services and work over an extended time." The government has set down pecifics of workers involvet with waler, heat, gas and elec- ricity as well as hospital work' ers, or any extreme privation or human suffering caused by extended stoppages of work. The AFL feels the section of he new labor act dealing with public emergency tribunal would hinder free collective largaining, in fact mean com- xilsory arbitration in the ma- jority of situations. "This is one part the govern- ment feels it must said Mr. Jamha. "They eves asked he AFL if it would like to have i representative on the tri- bunal, but even this would hin- der free collective bargaining." Mr. Jamha there is one positive gain accomplished by the new "At long lasl (here is i statement rtout the rights of striken on the picket line. "Ai long as methods not otherwise illegal are used, pick- ets can now persuade people not to enter the building of the business being struck; not to do business with the employer; and not to use the goods pro- duced by the plant being struck."
