Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta woarwaaay, uprn 24, int bcinpniuuE 3 Dateline Alberta Wage disputes unsettled A ir traffic likely back to normal by weekend EDMONTON (CP) Only three 1974 wage disputes involving about Alberta teachers remain to be settled, says Frank Ackerman of the Alberta Teachers Association's teacher welfare department.

In Montreal, where the 40 firefighters at Dorval Airport unanimously rejected the pro- brief presented Senator Hazen Argue chairman of the Senate Agriculture Committee, looks over his notes as he and National Farmers Union president Roy Atkinson of Saskatoon discuss the annual NFU brief to Parliament. The brief proposed that the government set up new marketing boards to help the farmers caught, in the squeeze of falling prices and rising costs. Nixon given extra 5 days WASHINGTON (AP) -The chairman of the House of Rep- resentatives judiciary com- mittee said Tuesday he expects the committee to go along with President Nixon's request for an additional five days to reply to a subpoena for 42 tapes related to the Watergate political espionage scandal. Representative Peter Rodino (Dem. N.J.) said he and the ranking Republican on the committee agreed to the postponement and "I am quite confident the members of the committee will go along." Rodino told a news confer- ence the matter will be taken up formally by the committee on Thursday, the day a re- sponse to the committee's subpoena is due. The delay requested by the White House would put off the response until next Tuesday. At the White House, spokes- man Gerald Warren attributed the request to "the pressure of business at the White House and the demands nn the president's time." Rodino said the delay was requested by James St. Clair, the president's chief Watergate lawyer, in a telephone call Monday to John Doar, posals in their local vote, a un- ion spokesman said Tuesday he expects firefighters throughout the country will return to work no matter which way the results of the nation-wide ballot go. "We will return to work on one the spokesman said. "If the proposals are turned down, we want a mediator appointed immediately to reopen negotiations. If that happens, everybody will be back on the job in half an hour." In Toronto, airport fire- fighters voted Tuesday 100- percen.t against the government offer and intend to continue their study session. A spokesman for the Toronto local, representing 36 firefighters, said the men will keep in contact with other locals across Canada before deciding on their next move. The spokesman criticized the federal government for not appointing a mediator in the dispute. MORE OFFERED At least of the firefighters involved in the contract dispute are expected to vote on the proposals, which offer the men a wage increase of about over a 26-month contract. Federal firefighters currently earn a year. Earlier, Claude Edwards, president of the Public Service Alliance of Canada, representing the firefighters in Ottawa, said, "If by Tuesday night we had 800 in favor, we'd know the results." In Montreal another union spokesman said Tuesday, "The vote will probably go in favor of accepting the proposals." While most of the 500 fire- fighters who work for the de- partment of transport at Can- ada's major airports are ex- pected to reject the offer, the spokesman said the 840 firemen with the department of national defence, who man smaller airports and military airfields, "will accept the proposals." If the vote goes in favor 01 Ihe new contract, the fire- fighters will be legally obliged to return to work. OTHER WORKERS HIT Among those hardest hit by the firefighters' dispute has been airline personnel. Air Canada reported that about stewardesses, rr.scnanics, flight attendants and pilots among its staff of have been laid off until the dispute is settled. A spokesman for the Cana- dian Airline Flight Attendant's Association termed Air Canada's action "a complete violation of our collective agreement." The spokesman said the air- line "has behaved in an out- rageous manner. We are utterly disgusted, yet there is little we can do." Meanwhile, the air traffic situation throughout the country remained unchanged Tuesday with most major airports handling only mid- sized jets. Since the walk-outs began by firefighters, Ottawa has become the country's busiest international airport, handling rerouted overseas and transatlantic flights. At Ottawa airport, manned by military firefighters, extra customs and immigration staff have been employed to cope with the increased work load. There were 115 arrivals and departures Monday at the airport which normally handles about 71 flights a day. Airport authorities report 60 per cent of their flights are foreign. In Montreal, an Air Canada spokesman reported Tuesday the airline "is running an al- most normal DC-9 schedule" on domestic flights. Air Canada also ran four transcontinental flights in and out of Ottawa during the day. An airline spokesman in To- ronto said the company is working at 50 per cent capacity under the current weight restrictions of pounds on jets. CP Air in Toronto reported it was functioning at only a third of its capacity. Air Canada cancelled flights to the Caribbean, Los Angeles Florida Tuesday and re- ported that passengers flown earlier to the Caribbean may be stranded there. A spokesman said empty planes may be sent from Ottawa to pick them up. In British Columbia, fire- fighters remained off the job at 10 airports and at a Canadian Forces base in Esquimalt. At Vancouver airport, radio operators postponed a planned partial walkout this week in support of the firefighters. Authorities said the airport is currently open eight hours a day to limited service only. EXPECTS REJECTION A spokesman for the firefighters' local in Vancouver said Tuesday he expected his men have rejected the contract proposals in their ballot. However, the local has proposed three possible mediators for the dispute, including B.C. Labor Minister Bill King No new developments were reported Tuesday in Alberta and Saskatchewan, firefighters remained off vork at Regina and Edmonton airports. However, a shop steward for airport firemen in Winnipeg said he expects his men will return to work as early as Friday regardless of the outcome of the national ballot Urgently Required Room and board for older lady.
