20 THE LETHBRIDGI HKAID Unions set goals OTTAWA (CP) Intensified action on social issues tlurln 1972 is promised in a Ne Year's message by Dona! MacDonald, president of the Ca nadian Labor Congress. "In addition to efforts to raise living standards of all working people through collective bar gaining, unions have a socia role of great importance. Or ganizcd labor has, in man ways, contributed to socia progress since the earliest day of our movement. "We are now, more than ever before, equipped to assume our responsibilities in this regan and this will be one of our fore- most objectives." Mr. MacDonald also used hi annual message to continue his criticism of government labo and economic policies. "We have been experiencin unemployment on a scale whic is nothing less than a national disgrace. GOVERNMENT CRITICIZED "During 1971 the policie adopted by the federal govern m e n t were responsible for throwing hundreds of thousand of Canadians out of work. This disaster was further com pounded by action taken in the United States." He said workers would lose their "freedom of expression" if their actions during labor dis- putes were restricted under fu ture legislation. "There are repeated efforts to restrict the activities of work ers' organizations so that their bargaining power will become ineffective. "A striking example is to be found in proposals for the stric limitation of picketing in the draft of new federal labor legis lation." But Air. MacDonald supported the legislation's provisions deal- ing with technological change attendant layoffs. "The need for legislation to protect workers exposed to these rapidly changing condi- tions has long been evident anc the Canadian Labor Congress supports the federal govern- ment In its effort to introduce such legislation.
