Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, July II, 1973 THE IETHBR100E HERALD Major split in labor ranks looms OTTAWA (CP) The com- try's second-largest union and the Canadian Labor Congress (CLC) are meeting today to thrash out dispute that could, ff unresolved, lead to a major split In the labor movement.. The Canadian Union of Public Employees the largest all-Cana- dian union, has threatened to stop its annual per capita pay- ments of to the con- gress unless a satisfactory agreement is reached over affi- liation of provincial public ser- vants. Failure to pay the per capita fees for three months would lead to automatic suspension of tile union from the thing that some officials see as a "very real possibility." The issue to be resolved is whether the union was granted exclusive jurisdiction over affi- liation of the provincial employ- ees. CUPE officials say (bey were granted jurisdiction by the con- gress over afl provincial public employees some years ago. Most of the union's members are employed by hospitals, mu- nicipalities and school boards but there are some provincial workers in its ranks. The conflict arose as some groups of provincial public ser- vants, notably from Alberta, Prince Edward Island and New- foundland, made moves to affil- iate with the congress as indi- vidual unions. Although CUPE spokesmen say these groups must merge exclusively with their union, CLC officials maintain provin- cial workers who want to join the congress should be per- mitted to affiliate directly. A solution to the issue must be given two-thirds support by members of the 33 members of the CLC executive council. CUPE already has gained support from two other unions representing public the Public Serv- ice Alliance of Canada, which represents federal employees, ixplofc Rugged Western Boots...

Many CUPE officials refer to provincial groups such as Civil Service Federation of scorn- fully, regarding them as Httie more than social dubs rather than unions.
