Layoffs story rapped GRANDE PRAIRIE (CP) The Chamber of Commerce sail! Thursday a published report about the effect of re- cent layoffs of woodsworkers and plant employees here was exaggerated. The chamber said the report, carried by The Cana- dian Press, was highly sen- sationalized and quoted a number of figures that were out of context. The figures in question were not specified. Firm 'playing polities' FORT McMURRAY (CP) Provincial NDP Leader Grant Motley said Thursday that Syncrude Canada Ltd. is "playing politics with jobs" as it prepares to announce layoffs at its Oil Sands extrac- tion plant construction site near this northeastern Alberta community. He said in an interview that Syncrude is laying off people to create a climate of fear. "They're using the same kind of scare tactics the oil in- dustry has used by moving some offices from Calgary." Mr. Notley said Syncrude's long term strategy is to force the Canadian government to allow domestic oil prices to rise to world levels of to S12 a barrel. UNITED MOTORS CO. LTD.

Union eyes Cominco workers TRAIL, B.C. (CP) The Canadian Association of In- dustrial, Mechanical and Allied Workers has been ask- ed to renew its attempt to win union representation over about Cominco employees in Trail, Kimberley and Salmo, B.C. The workers currently belong to the United Steelworkers of America, which defeated a CAIMAW raid on its large bargaining unit last year. The decision to request CAIMAW to resume organiz- ing at Cominco was made by the union's organizing com- mittee in Trail at a meeting earlier this week. On the basis of the local re- quest, CAIMAW officials have scheduled a rank and file meeting next Monday in Trail. CAIMA-W national secretary treasurer Jess Succamore said yesterday in Vancouver "we want to ex- amine this properly to make sure it's not just a few diehard supporters asking us back in." Mr. SUccamore said the un- ion is especially anxious to determine its strength among the 850 Cominco employees in Kimberley, where CAIMAW had little support during its previous organizing drive. Chief fired NELSON, B.C. (CP) Mayor Tex Mowatt said Thursday he has relieved the chief of police, Clifford Barager, 48, of 'his duties because of internal problems in the police department. Mr. Barager, who had serv- ed with the RCMP for 24 years, had been chief for the last two years.

Oil profits reports misleading CALGARY (CP) The of the Canadian Petroleum Association said Thursday that broadcast reports that the oil industry was making excessive profits were misleading. "We agree that earnings of the oil industry improved in the first nine months of 1974 primarily because of increas- ed volumes and John S. Poyen said in a statement. But many of the company earning reports did not include the "negative im- pact" of the resource taxa- tion measures introduced in the Nov. 18 federal budget and retroactive to May (J, he said. Mr. Poyen quoted a state- ment by Finance Minister John Turner that "business profits are not being squandered on excessive payouts to shareholders." The CPA president said a more proper assessment of the oil industry's earnings performance is its rate of return on investment. ".Statistics Canada reported' for a rate of return on the industry's total assets of only 8.3 per cent and that was probably our best Mr. Poyen said. "This is just not good enough for a sector of the economy engaged in the high risk of exploration and facing massive capital needs to generate new supplies of oil and gas which are basic to the future economic well being of our country." He said the best indicator of the industry's earnings per- formance is the stock market. The western oils index on the Toronto Stock Exchange Blunged to an eight year low in early December.
