Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Verbal dispute continues over postal labor report Wednesday, December 15, 1971 _ THE LETHBSICGE HEKALD 23. Stolen car contains infant A OTTAWA (CPi The post of. fice and the IxiUer Carriers Union of Canada continued their verbal buttle here a release last week of a union- .sponsored report on postal labor relalions. The report, by Carleton Uni- versity economist Richard Van- derberg, blamed unsettled la- bor-management relations on the post office. The latest volley came from Roger Dccarie, national presi- dent of the Letter Carriers Union of Canada, who charged j general for personnel, said Prof. statement that negative office reaction to the report was unjustified.

Police city li, nCAVS probe leak tec spending, decided today to keep secret the pay rate of their consultant, Toronto law- yer J. A. Coates. Consensus was easily reached that Mr. Coates he hired to aid in an investiga- tion of the non-payment of in- come tax by certain CBC em- ployees before 1969. But when his pay was to be revealed acting chairman Hud Whiting ordered newsmen from the room. Barry Mather rey-WhiterockJ, a former Vancouver reporter, sug- gested the commitiee was giv- ing more publicity io the Coates hiring than it would have if his pay were stated openly, "As a former newspaper- man, 1 can see that this makes a good story." It all started when Norman C'd fik proposed the hiring of the consultant, but said he had been unable io reach Mr. Coates to negoti- ate payment. REFUSE TO VOTE The committee refused to voted to adjourn after agree- ing to hire Mr. Coates, subject to approval of the Commons Speaker, without revealing salary. Then in rushed an aide of Mr. Cafik to say Mr. Coates was waiting on the telephone to discuss his pay. After a short conversation with the lawyer, Mr. Cafik announced Mr. Coates had stated his price. But, said Mr. Cafik, he did not want to reveal it to the committee with the reporter present, so Mr. Whiting ruled the meeting in camera. The 1969 auditor-general's report criticized the CBC for not deducting income tax from salaries paid cert ain employees working in the U.S. The CBC has since paid the U.S. government an amount equal to the unpaid taxes, but has not recovered the money from the employees con- cerned.

A statement in thc report that the office was preparing to eliminate the union-member position of supervisory letter carrier was completely untrue, said Mr. Barriere. i Tlie possibility of legal action against Prof. Vanderbcrg was "certainly worth serious consid- eration." The academic quality of the report was also attacked. There was, said Mr. Barriere, little evidence of thorough research and no management representa- tive had been interviewed dur- ing ils preparation. He said he would be surprised if such a piece of work would receive a passing grade if sub- mitted as a university essay.
