Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 25, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Time for a new president with fresh ideas says Pepin Wtdneiday, Auguil 25, 1971 THE IETHJRIDGE HERAIB 37 MONTREAL (CP) Labor leader Marcel Pcpin moves around liis gianl, scmi-circii- lar desk, (ixcs you with his in- tense dark eyes and punches point articulate home a French, "I have always tried [o put forward new ideas, often judged revolutionary.

He gave up skiing too. Same reason. Life-change points? It's a method Dr. a psychiatry professor at the University of Washington at worked out lo measure how much we have to change to handle the events it. our lives. And he says 20 years of re- search shows that we'd all better start measuring if we know what's good for us. "It's a statistical fact." he said in an interview here. ''The more change you have in your life in a given period, the more likely you are to get sick or injured in the near fu- ture." Dr. Holmes, 52. is a native of North Carolina where he took his medical degree, spe- cializing in inlernrd medicine. He moved lo ftatile in and became qualified as a psychiatrist. Ilo's serious when he talks about his "social readjust- ment rating scale." IMPACT VALUE It's an index that lists 42 kinds o( events covering vir- tually every kind of change that happens lo people.

I Tliis preventive aspect is his main concern. As a scientist, he isn'l ready yet lo say thai change causes illness. But the studies havn shown a powerful relationship between the two And just knowing that change has a strong bearing on the state of your health can be a help in avoiding ill- ness, lie contends. He sees it working like this: "Say a person has accumu- lated 200 points and recog- nizes that he's getting into the high-risk area. I suggest ho sit down and think about the events that added up to the 200 poinls. "This tends to provoke in- sight. You tend to take an in- ventory of what the events were all about and why they wcre important to you. "And once your brain goes through this kind of process, it gels rcprogrammed and it makes your behavior change. On the other hand, you can try to keep your poinls lolal down by avoiding changes you know will have a big impart on your life. WORD OF CAUTIO.V He emphasizes it's the im- portance of (he the social deter- mines the impact it has on a person. "It's the amount of change the event brings in your life.

Ten years ago, Mr. Pepin rose to the top ranks of a rel- atively-unknown Quebec labor federation just as Quebec was catapulted into the 20th cen- tury. The faces and problems have changed now and Mr. Pepin says it's lime for o new president with "fresh ideas" and a ''new In 19C1, after years of union repression under Q u e b e c 's Duplessis regime, the inember Canadian and Catho- lic Confederation of Labor be- came the Confederation of Na- t i o n a I Trade Unions. Mr. Pepin became general secre- tary replacing Jean Marchand who moved on to succeed Roger Mathieu as president. Now, Mr. Malhieu is editor- in-chief of La Prcsse, Mr. Marchand is regional eco- nomic development minister in the Trudeau government and-Mr. Pepui steps down this fall as head of a ber organization, tripled in size from the former church- based labor federation. The 45-year-old labor chief says he plons to stay with the CNTU as a negotiator and ad- viser for at least three years. A veteran unionist for 23 years, lie has pitched prede- cessors join the "establish- ment" and the political left outflank him on proposals for social change. And he has in- fluenced Quebec's transforma- tion from an autocratic, ru- ral-based society to a turbu- lent, Lechnological one. In IflGI, he called for mem- ber unions to broaden their traditional concern with bread-and-butter issues to the wider social sphere. Today, he brings Ihe CNTU into common fronts with other labor and non-labor groups to press gov- ernments into legislation and action on social problems. Elected president in to replace Mr. Marchand, Mr. Pcpin was able to get support for a "second front" CNTU concentration on social issues in 19C8. A political action com- mittee helped organize an op- position municipal party in Montreal and local citizen's committees as well as issuing advice booklets for citizens on tenants, housing, car insur- ance and medical care insur- ance. But in recent years, student groups, labor activist Michel Chartrand, the Parti Qucbc- cois and the Front de Ubera- i tion du Quebec have in differ- enl ways stolen some v! Pe- I pin's thunder. TAKES RISK I He has also faced criticism within the CNTU from more I conservative members, some of whom have tried unsuc- cessfully to remove their un- ions from the federation. Mr. Pepin admits that one of the major problems of the labor movement is "the risk that it vvill be the left fii'st, and secondly, in the sense that men without jobs, who Jive in poverty, who have very low wages, no longer believe that the union movement is an instrument, the way to escape from the impasse in which they find themselves." Mr. Pepin was born into the family of a leather cutter with nine children in (lie working- class St. Henri district of Montreal. With financing from rela- tives and friends and with part-time jobs, Mr. Pepin went lo classical college in Jo- liettc, about 40 miles east of Montreal, and then to Univer- sity of Montreal and Laval for degrees in philosophy and in- dustrial relations. joined the Federation of Textile Workers on graduation in 1948 and n year moved to the Metal Workers' Federation where he stayed until 1961. WOULD DEFY LAW As leader of the moat n'iV. tant Quebec labor group. Mr. Pepin has become a tough bargainer and skilful 'acti- cian. Last summer, he helped end a bitter construction strike when he convinced neivly- elected Premier Robert BOUT- assa to include a promise to study wage parity in legisla- tion forcing strikers back to work. If there had been no such promise, Mr. Pepin said later, he was prepared to go to jail in defiance of the law. Despite his political negoti- ating talents, however, many Quebec strikes have emptcd in violence in Hie last 10 years. Mr. Pcpin reminds that violence is not new to Quebec labor disputes and recalls Ihe bitter Asbestos strike in 1949 and the Gaspe Copper strike at Murdochville in 1957. Then, he says, union leaders lack lotal control of (heir members anyway and notes "we are in a period now when people place bombs for olhcr motives." During Ihe l.'IMs, Ihn FU) set several bombs at sites of labor conflicts to show sup- port for the workers, Ihcir hatred of capitalism and to dramatize their call for an in- dependent, socialist Quebec. "We don't recommend viol- he says, "but in cer- tain circumstances it's almott inevitable when employers re- place workers or hire scabs. "There is a right to strike. It is a right. But theie is no obligation for ohlcrs to re- spect that right."
