Cornelius Martens. The product of their work will be Bricklayers at Lethbridge are urged not to strike esg. builders ore Orton and Morton Eagle Speaker, Teddy Bastion and Coaldale gets under way at 7: JU. Bob Adams, western Canada representative for the Brick- ayers International Union, said today he is recommending union members in Lethbridge not go on strike Wednesday, even if bricklayers in Calgary and Edmonton walk out. A strike date of noon Wed- nesday had been set for 900 bricklayers in Calgary and Ed- monton, and it had been thought a province wide sym- pathy strike of bricklayers might be called. However, Mr. Adams said there will not be a sympathy strike by Lethbridge members "unless deemed absolutely necessary." Meanwhile, negotiations be- tween bricklayers and contrac- tors have resumed in Calgary in an attempt to avert the Wed- nesday strike which could shut down major construction proj- ects in the province. Contrac- tors spokesman could give no indication of when a settlement could be expected. The union is seeking a increase per hour over two years, while the contractors have offered Currenl rate of pay is hourly. Al though only Edmonton and Cal gary are planning strike action at this time, the union is seek- ng a province wide settle- ment. Lethbridge employers did not sign power of attorney to the Alberta Construction Labor Re- ations Association to bargain on their behalf, said Mr. Vlams.

'Bricklayers are seventh on Hie totem pole in relation to other crafts and we have to get them up to equal pay for bet- ttr continuity and worker rela- tions on the job. "It is disheartening for t bricklayer to work along side another union man who is making per hour more." Mr. Adams said another point in the negotiations for wages is the shorter working season for the brick- layers and the dependency on weather conditions which limits the yearly work load to 40 weeks.

Read why in TAX LINE our ree commentary. Relax. Don't make a move in any direction because of pro- posed tax laws until you know exactly what you should do. Remember that proposed laws are only words. They're like theories. They haven't been tested in specific situations. They will be open to debate and interpretation. It will take time for the know how they really work. For instance, someone challenges the legal application of a new law in some way. The outcome of such a case could drag on and on, yet could easily affect you. So understanding these new laws is a matter of waiting and watching as well as a matter of study and interpretation. We ought to know. We've watched new tax laws come and go for over fifty years. This is why we're introducing TAX LINE. It will be pre- pared by our own tax consultants who will cover the tax scene, and report to you on developments. Most important, it will explain things in clear language. No gobbledygook. After all, what would be its use if you couldn't understand it any more than the wording of the proposals themselves. TAX LINE is free, and will come to you as significant information is developed. Although we may refer to some of our services in order to explain how things work, you are under no obligation to come to us. Then again maybe you'll want to. It's up to you.
