Phone 328-7121 Caretakers will take strike vote CALGARY (CP) About 800 caretakers arid maintenance workers in the Calgary public1 school system Will take a government supervised strike vote next Wednesday, a union official said Friday. Wages and working con- ditions are still outstanding between the workers, members of Local 40 of the Canadian Union of Public Employees, and the school board, said Dave Adams, CUPE national represen- tative. The board is offering to increase the minimum rates for caretakers to an hour from on a one year contract, an offer, described by Mr. 'Adams as "inade- quate, almost insulting." "This offer is 67 cents an hour less than current Lethbridge rates for caretakers." CUPE is asking an increase of an hour across the board. Mr. Adams said hours of work, overtime, seniority, job description and job reclassification are also un- settled issues. No blackmail claims oilman Education director bounced VANCOUVER (CP) The director of research and development for the British Columbia department of education has been fired by Education Minister Eileen Dailly. Dr. Stanley Knight said he was dismissed Wednesday "with no severance pay, and no warning and I was also instructed that I can't go back to my office." Dr. Knight said Thursday he believes he was fired from his a year job because, his research and development branch challenged traditional philosophies of education and decision making. He said he has begun public service commission proceedings, claiming he was not fired for just reasons. The president of the B.C. Teachers' Federation, Jim MacFarlan, echoed Dr. Knight's reaction Friday say- ing "that if the premier and the government want the changes in education that they have espoused, it is clear they will have to make changes in the department of education beginning with the minister." CALGARY (CP) The demands by the remaining partners of the Syncrude pro- ject are "no blackmail but a responsible, honest and fac- tual statement of their joint management John Poyen, president of the Cana- dian Petroleum Association said yesterday.

While calling the deadline of Jan. 31 "a rather short Mr. Poyen said the other demands by the remain- ing partners of the Syncrude Canada Ltd. consortium as conditions to continue the oil sands project are He said comments by Mel Hurtig of the Committee for an Independent Canada and Grant Notley, leader of the Alberta New Democratic Par- ty, that the oil companies are bluffing were "irresponsible statements." "Mel Hurtig is a publisher and he is as qualified to com- ment on oil sands as I am qualified to tell a football team how to win." If the Syncrude project is cancelled, it would be another five to 10 years before a similar effort is made to develop the oil sands and Canada's energy self suf- ficiency would be seriously threatened, He said. Atlantic Richfield Canada Ltd., recently withdrew its 30 per cent interest from the ?2 billion Syncrude project.
