Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THI WTHBRIBGH HMAID Friday, July 17, 1970 Major Buys Meal For Protester MEDICINE HAT (CP) A nine day hunger strike by Eric Giles, 23, of Moose Jaw ended late Thursday and he w a s "reasonably satisfied" with results of his protest to focus attention on an automo- tive warranty he claimed was mishandled. Intervention by city mayor Harry Veiner brought the fast to an end following a private three party meeting. Mayor Veiner later purchased Giles' The Gtizeii Printers OK Pact OTTAWA (CP) A strike that has hobbled the Ottawa Cit- izen since July 6 appeared over today with agreement on a first contract for the daily news- paper's 58 composing room em- ployees. The virtual end came Thurs- day night when the room employees, a unit of the I n t e r n a tional Typographical Union, endorsed an agreement worked out by union and com- pany negotiating teams. Final ratification today by the larger Ottawa district ITU local to which the little Citizen ITU belongs, is seen as a formality only. Allan Heritage, an ITU inter- national representative, said there is no doubt the other members of the local employed in other organizations will ac- cept the agreement. Christopher Young, the Citi- zen editor, said he expects all 300 employees idled by the strike to be back on the job by Monday, including most of the paper's 150-member American Newspaper Guild unit. Most ANG members walked out in sympathy with the ITU strikers, who struck to support contract demands following the ITU certification as bargaining agent a year ago. PARITY WITH JOURNAL The new ITU wage package, not an issue in the closing days of the dispute, gives the com- posing room employees eco- nomic parity with their counter- parts on the capital's other Eng- lish-language daily, The Jour- nal.

A statement after the one- hour meeting, involving Giles Mayor Veiner and Larry Bais- ley, vice president and gen oral manager of Canine r Motors, said only that an agreement had been reacted No terms were given. Giles announced earlier Thursday that although a war- ranty transfer on his used American Motors car, which he purchased at Gardner last June, was approved he would continue the hunger strike for reimbursement of expenses his 192 hour protest. The car, which he said had transm i s s i o n trouble, was parked during the time at one hour parking stall in front of Gardner Motors. With the help of a friend's car he moved his vehicle between stalls. Giles slept in the car and took for nourishment only milk, fruit juice and water, lie was to leave today for Moose Jaw.

Reject Ottawa Parley EDMONTON (CP) Indians holding a sit-in at a school in St. Paul have vowed to con tinue their protest until Jean Chretien, Indian Affairs Minis ter, meets with them.
