Ftldoy, December 4, 1970 THE LITHBRiDGE HERALD 27 4Unfair strike' bill bitterly opposed in U.K. LONDON (Renter) Pena ties of up to were prescribed here for labo unions who strike in defiance o new rules laid down by the Con servative government. The penalty and Ihe rule were disclosed with publication of a controversial industrial re lations bill which is bitterly op posed by the unions. A one-day token protest strike is being urged across the coun try for Tuesday. Some union leaders hint at the possibility o a sustained general strike. Main provision of the bill is the setting up of a new in dustrial relations court with power to award compensation 'Neiv town'' establishes precedent HIGH LEVEL (CP) A civic electior precedent was set when this northern community became the first of Alberta's "new towns" to have a fully- elected board of administra- tors. A new five man board was required after the province turned over its two appointed seats to local electors and two seats at stake in an election last year were voided. There was one resignation. A total of 165 of the eligible 574 voters, turned out in 25-be- low-zero weather to elect Stan Schiller, Tom Diemert, Collin Trayner, Pete Machura and Terry Freeman.

The bill sets out a long list of practices deemed to be unfair. A strike hi support of these practices could make a union liable to pay damages. These practices include the breaking of a legallyeoncluded agreement, a strike to force the dismissal of any employee, a strike against recognition of a rival union and a strike in sup- port of a closed shcp. MUST REGISTER The bill would require all un- ions and employers organiza- tions to register with the gov- ernment. Unofficial strikers would not have the protection in law afforded to union leaders. Making a union legally ac- countable for the consequences of strike action is a major new principle in British law. Other provisions of the bill in- clude: power to im- pose a 60-day cooling off perio in disputes which create a ser ous risk to the community. power to order a secret ballot by workers if it doubts that a majority of them support strike action in serious disputes. statutory right for an in- dividual to belong or not to be- long to a labor union as he thinks fit. against unfair dismissal. periods of notice for longrservice employees. GIVEN JAIL Clement Roy, 22, who last week re- fused to testify at the inquest into the death of Labor Min- ister Pierro Laporte, was sentenced to nine days in jail on a charge of contempt of court. Science council urges action Short, fast air hops wanted OTTAWA (CP) Fast air travel between Uie downt o w n centres of nearby cities can be achieved in the 1970's without large capital investment, says the Science Council of Canada. To grasp promising social and economic benefits, Canada should act now to convert her wordl lead in take- off-and-landing-aircrait into a demonstration service which will convince the travelling pub- lic and the world, it. says. A council report to the gov- ernment made public yest e r- day estimates the top invest- ment at million. It suggests fhat the aircraft should be de Havilland's DHC-7 a four-en- gine, turbo-prop for 48 passen- gers that lands and takes off on a runway about Ihree city blocks long. Besides the planes, a STOL air transport system would in- clude navigational aids, air-traf- fic cintrol, STOL ports, ticket- ing and other facilities. Among benefits listed by the council are better over-all na- tional service of use to all re- gions but especially to the high- ly-populated Quebec City-Wind- sor, Ont., corridor, less -noise than present jets, employment of highly skilled technician manpower, growth of a technology-based industry, greatler exports and develop- ment of technology and equip- ment of real value to develop- ing nations. In pressing for fast action, the council notes that the United States, which has several simi- lar densely populated corridors, is moving at government and industry levels towards such a system. De Havilland's DHC-7 has al- ready attracted purchase depos- its from two United States air- lines Houston Metro Airways of Texas for four and Pilgrim Airlines of New London, Conn., for one. Nordair Ltd. of Montreal put up a deposit in October for two be the sixth and seventh off the. de Havilland production line in Toronto. Estimated cost of an aircraft is million.
