Railway unions to mull scheme pTTAWA (CP) A top railway union leader has told federal Labor Minister John Munro labor agrees reform of collective bargaining procedures in the industry is essential and union chiefs are willing to meet with the minister to discuss change. W. C. Y. McGregor, chairman of the Canadian Railway Labor Association, which includes 16 unions, says in a recent letter that while there are varied opinions on what new techniques might be tried in negotiation, labor is willing to explore possibilities. Since a railway arbitration awards Jan. 16 that ended 14- months of negotiating, Mr. Munro and William Kelly, acting deputy minister, have been proposing various bargaining techniques they hope would end strikes. Last summer, Parliament was recalled to end a national rail strike. Negotiations for a new working agreement beyond Dec. are due to begin in November. Mr. Munro and Mr. Kelly have suggested rail unions and companies try voluntary arbitration or a combination of mediation with arbitration. The United Transportation Union, one of the major railway unions, suggested in a recent editorial voluntary arbitration by "a .fair-minded judge who has an insight into the complex problems of rail workers." UNION RESPONDS Mr. McGregor said in his letter to Mr. Munro proposals from federal labor spokesmen have struck a responsive chord among some union leaders. "Among others you aroused uncertainty and he added. But union officers, while not all agreeing on techniques proposed by Mr. Munro and Mr. Kelly, say they are willing to consider innovations including those suggested. "We pledge to undertake such an inquiry with open minds and a readiness to experiment with new ideas, so long as we are convinced their adoption would be in the best interests of the railway employees we Mr. McGregor says. Mr. Munro, replying to the letter, said he was pleased but, as yet, there has been no formal reaction from management The companies include CP Rail and the Canadian National Railways. Chinese language bill set for legislature HONG KONG (Renter) The government of this British colony is moving to make Chinese an official language, along with English, in response to demands from the overwhelmingly Chinese population. The government's decision on the language issue became known when it published a draft language expected to go before the colony's legislative assembly in a few weeks and almost certain to be passed. The bill, based on three years of planning, study and discussion, embodies the main recommendations of a committee appointed by the government to look into the question. The campaign to make Chi- nese an official language was launched by university students in 1970 with the backing of a number of municipal councillors, in what was seen as a stirring of latent cultural nationalism. Campaigners argued that not enough Chinese was used in government letters and notices, and that non-English- speaking Chinese residents were discriminated against in many ways. HAD JOB TROUBLE For example, they had diffi- culty getting jobs in the government service and were barred from serving on the colony's administrative councils where proceedings were conducted in English. The government subsequently appointed the committee comprising five leading citizens, who studied the question of giving equal status by law to both languages and providing for the use of Chinese as far as practicable in judicial pi ocwdings. Health inspectors turn away tons of bad food OTTAWA 'CP) Canned mushrooms Taiwan and Korea, cheeses from Italy and frog legs from Asian countries have been identified by the federal health department as the imported foods most likely to be contaminated. Inspectors turned away hun- dreds of thousands of dollars worth of these at the border during October and November, the health department disclosed in its Rx Bulletin. Thousands of cases of mush- rooms were refused entry be- cause maggots were found in the cans. About 12 tons of Italian cheese were turned back" be- cause of high levels of pesti- cides. Several tons of frog legs from India and other Asian countries were turned away because of salmonella bacteria which causes food poisoning. Refusal to allow large quan- tities of foods into Canada has been routine for several years, but the public has been unaware of the extent because the health department until last December kept secret its monthly monitoring activities. Health Minister Marc Lalonde agreed to supply the information after journalists and members of the public asked for it. Contamination in mushrooms and cheeses was more prevalent a few years ago, Or. A. B. Morrison of the health protection branch said in an interview. Asked whether some of the products are getting by health inspectors, he said it is possible although screening is thorough. Improvements in sanitation have occurred because exporters have learned Canadians will not accept contaminated products, he said. Importers are using better judgment in choosing foods. Ken Render, chief of the de- partment's field operations di- rectorate, said health officials have met those of other coun- tries to discuss health standards and methods for improved sanitation. The Rx Bulletin lists 10 occasions during October and November when frog legs were refused entry. Most originated in India and all had been refused entry to the United States, said Mr. Render. "Often when cargo is refused entry in one country, ihe exporters will try to get it into another he said. "But the U.S. Food and Drug Administration tips us off." Salmonella bacteria in the frog legs are destroyed during cooking but there is danger they might contaminate kitch- ens and uncooked foods, said Mr. Render. Foods denied entry some- tunes are destroyed and other times returned to the exporting country, a health official said. However, the spokesman said contaminated foods might be made available at reduced prices to countries with protein shortages. Marc and Toussaint brand whole mushrooms and pieces and stems, and Monica brand canned mushrooms, all from Korea, were denied entry, as well as Slack's whole mush- rooms, Gold Cup pieces and stems, Woodwards canned button mushrooms, Co-op whole mushrooms, Monay's pieces and stems and Green Giant canned sliced from Taiwan.
