Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE HERALD-Friday, August Quebec unions defying existing work contracts MONTREAL (CP) Quebec unions are turning increasingly toward defiance of their collective agreements and the law in a race to ease the pain of rapidly rising con- sumer prices. About workers are en- gaged in 12 illegal walkouts, while another are off the job in 31 legal strikes, Quebec Labor Minister Jean Cour- noyer said in an interview Wednesday. Mr. Cournoyer said cost of living is the major issue in the walkouts. In addition to strikes, thou- sands of construction workers are conducting work slow- downs which have brought gloom and doom predictions from businessmen and appeals for government intervention. Organized labor's mood here is illustrated by Fernand Daoust, secretary-general of the Quebec Federation of Labor who has urged illegally-striking employees of Quebec- Telephone to continue their two-week walkout. "If you wait until it's legal, you are going to be living pret- ty he said, adding that it is "time to give these multi- national, multi-billionaire companies a lesson." The volatile construction in- dustry situation has aroused the most long-range concern for Quebec economic growth prospects, but Mr. Cournoyer has to date refused to take the coercive steps against labor demanded by business organ- izations and industry manage- ment. Work slowdowns on construction sites are con- sidered by management as violations of provincial law governing the industry. Construction groups, notably the Montreal Construction Association have criticized Mr. Cournoyer for not being tough enough. "I am not tough enough with Mr. Gagnon and Mr. Nuth (officers of the Mr. Cournoyer said. "The problem as such lays' with the construction parties and not the labor minister." "Two weeks ago we wanted discussions to take place be- tween employers and employ- ees. The employers refused. What the hell can I he asked. The MCA said in a state- WE REQUIRE QUALIFIED OR TRAINEE Meat Cutters Meat Wrapping Clerks Grocery Clerks Cashiers Produce Clerks For full time or part time positions, excellent wages, full group benefits. Apply to the MANAGER L-MART STORE College Mall Lethbridge ment that Mr. Cournoyer has been unable to bring the warr- ing factions together. The statement said Mr. Cournoyer had promised to ask the QFL to accept forma-- tion of a board of independent experts to study construction unions demands for cost-of- living adjustments, but that the QFL refused the idea. ISSUES CALL The MCA again appealed to the provincial government to force the QFL to "respect the law" and accept the forma- tion of a committee of impar- tial experts. "Without this intervention, the construction industry will continue to pass under the control of QFL construction goons and. as with James Bay, Quebec taxpayers will feel the disastrous financial and social the statement said. Mr. Cournoyer said Wednes- day that he ordered a study of construction industry wages compared with the rise in cost of living. He denied published reports that the study was se- cret. "Purely speaking, the hour- ly wage rate of construction workers has evolved at the same rate as the cost of he said. Employers consider legal strikes as a normal part of the bargaining process, he said, but problems start when workers reject the authority of law. Iran signs oil deal TEHRAN (AP) Pan- Canadian Petroleum Ltd. of Calgary and the American Ashland Oil Co. signed a deal with Iran Tuesday for exploration and development of new oil resources in an area of southern Iran. The agreement, signed by the chairman of the national Iranian Oil Co., Dr. Manuchehr Eghbal, and North American group representative Michael Roger, gives five years' rights to the American and Canadian partners to explore for oil. Explorer's sunken ships to be raised RANKIN INLET, N.W.T. (Reuter) About a dozen modern-day adventurers left here Wednesday for Marble Island. 25 miles to the east, where the British ships Albany and Discoverer sank in 1719. The vessels were command- ed by Sir James Knight, sent by Hudson Bay Co. to find a legendary mountain of gold in the Arctic. The gold was not found and Sir James and his crew perished. Alexander Byron of New Bedford, Mass., leader of the current expedition, hopes to bring the two ships to the sur- face and. perhaps, uncover clues to the fate of Sir James' group. It is known the crews of the Albany and Discoverer surviv- ed two Arctic winters. Historical records also show that Sir James and some others tried to build a longboat. It is not known why the longboat was never used. The two ships lie in Eastend Harbor off Marble Island, in 12 feet of water. Walter Zacharchuk, a Cana- dian marine archaeologist who is supervising the ex- cavation, believes the low water temperatures may have kept deterioration of the wooden ships to a minimum. Preliminary evidence shows tl e ships can be raised reason- aoly intact, he said. The expedition plans to dam the harbor and pump the water out, allowing easy removal of the silt sur- rounding the ships. Mr. Byron originally was in- terested in the Ansel Gibbs, a New Bedford whaler that foundered in 1872, not far from Sir James' ships. He planned to raise the Ansel Gibbs and make it a tourist attraction at the Massachusetts whaling port. But then the Discoverer and Albany were located and their historical significance and the fact that they were in water much shallower than the Ansel Gibbs, changed the im- mediate aim of the expedition.
