However, the majority of ex- piring contracts do not come under review until December when agreements involving 000 employees end. More than employees will be involved in the biggest contract talks covering the Civil Service Association of Al- berta and the provincial gov- ernment, the survey says. The present contract expires Dec. 31. The province and its civil servants had a difficult time settling last year, with the as- sociation conducting several demonstrations and jail guards walking off in an Illegal strike. The Progressive Conserva- tive government stepped into the dispute the day after its election Aug. 30 and reached a truce with the civil servants. It's also an off year in the con struclion industry. Follow- ing a busy season in 1971, con- tracts and building trades unions have 21 agreements for renegotiation this year with painters, sheet metal workers and plasterers involved in most contracts. There's eight agreements to be negotiated affecting only Calgary employees, and all but two involving civic or provin- cial government workers. The major private enterprise agreement to be negotiated hi volves the retail clerks union and city supermarkets, of which more -Jian em- ployees are affected. Also expiring at the end of December Is an agreement be- tween the Calgary public school board and its teachers. Tile talks are expected to be difficult as t h e teachers last April struck for three days be- fore agreeing to a contract. The public school board's contract with its 650 mainte- nance and service workers also expires at year ffld. CP not giving up ships MONTREAL (CP) Despite the recent sale of the Empress of Canada, CP Ltd. hasn't given up tire ships. The company still has five container ships carrying tuT loads in and out of Quebec City And a wholly-owned subsidi ary, CP Bermuda Ltd., operates two supertankers of tons, two tankers, two bulk carriers, a log-and-lumber car- rier and three bulk carriers. As far as W. John Stenason Is concerned, ocean shipping is "a business we're in, because it's profitable." Mr. Stenason Is Canadian Pa- cific's vice-president (transport and chairman ot CP Ships, and a director of CP Ber- muda. CP Ships' five container ves- sels have been operating "at close to 100 per cent load factor since Mr. Stenason said. ORDERS PLACED The company has its own con- tainer terminal in Quebec City and has placed orders in Britain and Ireland for nearly cargo containers at a cost of million. Three of the company's con tainer ships are modern cellular container vessels, each capable of carrying 770 containers. The other two ships are converted vessels used in the booming North Atlantic trade. About 20-per-cent of the con- tainer ship business involves de- liveries to and from the United States, largely through Cana- dian rail lines into the U.S. mid- west. U.S. and Canadian firms have proved to be good custom- ers. Some manufacturers use European-made engines and other components in certain North American cars. And there have been some heavy shipments of Canadian manufactured goods to Europe. FEWER PASSENGERS Passenger snipping, however, has been less and kss profitable during the last 10 years. The company's smallest recent an- nual loss in this field was about in 1968.
