Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta It THI lITHiRIDSE HIMID Saturday, January 29, TORONTO fCP) International Nickel Co. of Canada Ltd. announced Friday it is reducing its nickel production by about 10 per cent. The cut will affect almost jobs in the Sudbury, Ont., district. It was the third reduction in the level of nickel production in six months and the combined effect was to reduce production to about 30 per cent below capacity. A company statement said about 725 employees will be given notices of layoff in the next few days and another 550 positions are expected to disappear through normal the next several months. Another 690 workers will be indirectly affected. These are contractors employees who will no longer be required and whose jobs will be performed by regular Into employees transferred during a three-month period. Inco said the cut in production will be "generally proportional in the Ontario and Manitoba divisions." In the Manitoba division all affected hourly-rate workers will be absorbed through normal attrition, the company raid. The reason given for the latest cut was the same as for "need to avoid a further build-up of Inventories." Supply of nickel on world markets has exceeded demand and as a result the price has dropped. The current established price is fl.37% a pound and in late 1970 the price was above Price-cutting by small producers in Africa, Finland and Greece has added to the problems of the major producers. Inco provides more than half the nickel consumed by non-Oommunist countries. The Inco statement said the value of total inventories of all metals and supplies at the 1971 wai about J.80 million greater than the million worth held In stockpiles at Dec. 31, 1970. The latest production cutback will involve cuts in ore production at the Stable section of the Frood-Stoble mine and suspension of operations at Crean Hill mine, both in the Sudbury district suspension of operations at the Coniston, Ont., smelter; and a reduction of ore production at the Birchtree mine near Thompson, Man. Inco announced in October a cut in production of about IS per cent. A seven-per-cent cut was announced in net effect on employment of the previous two cutback! was a direct lots of about job positions. Another positions were to be affected through attrition, which meant jobs would be filled by transferring workers as employees retired or quit. The greatest Impact on employment levels in Manitoba were effected by transferring employees to fill positions made vacant by retirements or resignations. Nickel is a key component in a variety of alloys and is used in a wide range of industrial and consumer Henry S. Wingate, Inco chairman, has said the drop In demand for nickel means that nickel users art depleting Inventories and turning more to tower-priced (crap containing nickel.

Agriculture trade now is an important item on the negotiat- ing agenda, the council said, adding that world trade in farm products continue to be held back by a "variety of import restrictions." The council agreed with Nix- on's commission on interna- tional trade and investment policy that the time is ripe for trade talks on farm price sup- ports of majcr nations. LISTS GUIDELINES The council said four guide- lines should be followed in fu- ture negotiations in agricultural trade: over agricul- tural trade policies will be un- productive until domestic tech- niques of support are modi- fied." New policies will be need- ed to help low-income workers find "more productive and higher income pursuits." "Importing countries must participate with exporting coun- tries in facilitating adjustment if an improvement In the inter- national use of resources is to be obtained." Each country should be free to give income assistance to agricultural workers, but this aid "should minimize inter- ference with production, con- sumption and trade." The council said many devel- oped countries, the United States included, follow protec- tionist policies in agriculture. "This was particularly true in the European community, where internal prices have been pegged substantially above import prices through a complex system of import le- vies and export it said. The United Kingdom, in pre- paring for membership in the Common Market, has "moved Erom a consumer-oriented, re- latively liberal, import policy11 toward the more restrictive Common Market policies, UK council said.
