Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 1, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, August LETHBRIDGE HERALD-5 Railway union bucks crew cut By BILL COULTHARD OTTAWA (CP) An arbi- tration hearing Wednesday heard a succession of witnesses describe potential dangers and unrealistic workloads involved in a plan by the two major railways to reduce rear-end freight train crews to one man. The United Transportation Union (UTU) is opposing the proposal before Mr. Justice Emmett Hall, former Supreme Court of Canada judge appointed arbitrator after Parliament ended last summer's national railway strike. INSURANCE LIABILITY BONOS AUTO FIRE ROSSITER AGENCIES LTD. Established 1911 Lower Floor 517 4th Ave. S. Phone Canadian National Railways and CP Rail say the change in crews can be made safely in some areas because of improved signalling, traffic control and radio com- munications. But the UTU witnesses, con- ductors who represented the union during trial runs with the one-man rear-end crews, told stories of signal breakdowns and injuries that would go untended if conduc- tors were alone in their cabooses. Witnesses .also testified Wednesday that two rear-end crewmen are required to fulfil the responsibilities of inspecting the train and watching behind for Signs of damage while remaining available to communicate with the front end by radio. The makeup of freight train rear-end crews has been un- changed since 1898. The rail- ways say about 450 men would be eliminated at a payroll sav- ing of about million if the change is made. Those now working would be protected against job loss, however. British election call expected LONDON (Reuter) The 635-seat House of Commons adjourned for the summer holiday recess Wednesday with most of its members con- vinced that a general election will intervene before Parlia- ment reassembles again. The minority Labor ad- ministration, which came to power last March, has suf- fered a series of defeats in the lower this week in votes on trade union legislation. This has led to increasing frustration among ministers and supporters. The advice from close political colleagues to Prime Minister Harold Wilson, who has the sole right to choose the election date, is to seek a stronger mandate this autumn, despite signs in re- cent public opinion polls that Labor's popularity is slip- ping.
