CALGARY (CP) A union spokesman said Thursday the Calgary public school board is trying to prolong a strike by its caretakers by using parents to help keep the board's 180 schools open. "It's obvious the school board is trying to create a long said Dave Adams, spokesman for the Canadian Union of Public Employees which represents the 750 caretakers who went on strike Wednesday. Both sides agree that little has changed since the strike began and that no talks are planned for the immediate future. About 100 volunteers have offered time to help keep schools clean and there were no reports of school closures Thursday. An additional problem may be encountered as boilers struggle to keep the schools warm in the sub-zero weather being experienced by Calgary this week. School board chairman John Curran said the boilers "could give us some concern." Mr. Adams said volunteers can expect "strong reactions" from picketing caretakers if they cross picket lines to work in the schools. Public school board security chief John Kushner said "we're taking every precautionary measure within our means "to protect the volunteer caretakers. "I certainly don't like this type of situation. We're not anticipating any problems." The Alberta Teachers Association has agreed to keep school classes operating but the associatijn warned members not to do any jobs normally done by caretakers. The association told members if schools become unsafe due to the lack of janitorial service, the schools should be closed. The main outstanding issues in the dispute are wages and wage differentials for female employees. The board has offered a 19 per cent raise over one year while workers want an across the board per hour or 48 per cent raise over one year. The union is also demanding that female housekeepers be paid the same as male cleaners who do substantially the same work. The housekeepers now are paid 90 cents an hour less than their male Counterparts, says the union. Both sides say they expect a long strike lasting as long as three months. Dateline Alberta Teachers reject offer liDMONTON (CP) More than 400 County of Strathcona teachers have voted by a ma- jority of 96 per cent to reject a 20 per cent wage increase offered by the school board. The teachers, who also decided this week to return to their original proposal of a 32 per cent salary increase, ended a two year contract with the school board Dec. 31. Winnifred Ferguson, chairman of the county school board and the negotiating committee, said she thought the board offer was "fair." MAYOR SYKES Talks reach stalemate to control oil flow EDMONTON (CP) Alberta must continue to use pro-rationing to control oil production, the Energy Resources Conservation Board ruled yesterday. The board held hearings last March on sharing of the de- mand for oil among all producers and was told by oil companies the system should be dropped because demand was strong. Yesterday's ruling said the prospect of National Energy Board controls on exports to the U.S. makes continued pro rationing necessary. Changing supply and de- mand conditions in the U.S. and resistance on the part of American buyers to the Cana- dian export tax "have combin- ed to cause Alberta market nominations again to be below productive capacity. "Under the circumstances there has been a need to allocate production among pools and the pro rationing plan has served this pur- pose "It appears likely that the total markets effectively available to Alberta will re- main below Alberta's produc- Government cool manage] CALGARY ICP> The Calgary Convention Centre Authority Thursday dismissed its general manager, Douglas Goadby, following a morning news conference at which Mr. Goadby called on Mayor Rod Sykes to resign from the centre's governing authority. Mr. Goadby, who has been vored )W live capacity for some time. This situation clearly indicates a need for continuing the pro rationing plan." Meanwhile, Mines Minister Bill Dickie told the legislature Wednesday 1974 was a record year for exploration and development of oil and gas reserves in the province. The total footage drilled in 1974 was 11.9 million, up feet from 1973, although the number of wells drilled declined by 34 to he said. About 35 per cent of the 1974 exploratory wells were considered successful, he r fired general manager of the centre for two years, said he will turn over the official dismissal notice to his lawyer, since his contract with the city does not expire until Jan. 31, 1976. He said he can show "proper management and good budgeting" in contesting the dismissal. During the news conference, Mr. Goadby said the mayor, who is an ex-officio member of the authority, had injected pessimism, reticence and uncertainty into the work of the authority, which controls the operation of the new downtown convention complex. Mr. Goadby said he took action Thursday because an operating agreement to make the centre an independent and incorporated subsidiary of the city has been accepted by city council and is now awaiting the signature of the chairman and vice chairman of the McMURRAY (CP) conflict over allotment of th Talks aimed at moving new homes."
