Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta District News In Brief Wedneidoy, April 11, 1973 THE IETHBRIOGE HWAIO Tiiial offer selection9 of Worth report backed PINCHER CREEK (HNS) Following the recent teachers' strike, a meeting of 35 par- ents here discussed ways of averting a similar occurrence in the future. The following resolution was adopted: "Be it resolved that we, the concerned parents of Pincher Creek, strongly urge that the Alberta government implement the salary negotiating recom- mendations as outlined in the Worth report, namely, the con- cent known as the 'final offer selection.' "Final offer selection" is re- viewed on page 248 of the Worth report. Quoting the report: "This system serves to bring the negotiating parties closer together by placing them under considerable pressure to adopt reasonable positions so that ne- gotiated compromise may su persede posturing for effect. The key idea underlying the FOS approach is that if twc sides in dispute are unable to resolve their differences, a se- lection officer drawn by lot from a panel of mutually _ ac- ceptable cardidates is given the power to choose between the final offers presented bj both sides. The offer so chosen is then Binding on both parties without alterations." Copies of the resolution were sent'to Education Minister Lou Hyrdman, the Alberta Teachers Association and the Alberta School Trustees Association. The meeting also suggested that any individual or concern- ed gro up desiring to support this resolution should do so by writing the minister of educa- tion.
