Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 13, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, Februery 13, 1975 Bills affecting provincial workers to be reviewed EDMONTON (CP) The formation of a study group to review legislation concerning provincial employees was an- nounced in the Alberta legislature Wednesday by Labor Minister Bert Hohol. The group, consisting of two government representatives and two members of the Civil Service Association of Alber- ta, will also make recommen- dations regarding "a system of labor relations which is in the best interest of provincial employees and the citizens of Alberta." Dr. Hohol told the legislature the government "realizes that the legislation has been developed piecemeal and we agree that a com- prehensive review is necessary." Bil Broad, president of the CSA, said in an interview Wednesday he hoped the recommendations could be brought before the legislature by next spring. He said the group would ex- amine the Alberta Labor Act. Never a dull mome TERMS 1975MONTEGO V8, power steering, power brakes, vinyl roof, radio, deluxe wheel covers, block healer, and opera windows.
