Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 LETHBRIDGE HERALD July 1974 Railway unions turn down plans OTTAWA Non-oper- ating railway unions rejected Tuesday two key proposals in a plan proposed by two major railways to ensure employ- ment for workers with eight years or more seniority. But they told Mr Justice Emmett Hall at an arbitration hearing that general out- line of a feasible plan in the document submitted Monday by Canadian National Railways CP Rail. they rejected the companies' call for a system that would enable protected employees with eight or more years service to displace junior workers who are members of another non- operating union. And they also rejected the full transfer of seniority rights with workers who are moved into another job because their own is eliminated. The job security question was one of the major stumbl- ing blocks to settlement of last year's national rail strike and Mr. Justice called in to settle the strike as ar- sent the parties back to the table to discuss the issue again The results of months of negotiations was the proposal From the Staff VANTA'S to VANTA'S ECONOMY MEATS What can they Well Donell Phone 329-4545 submitted by the railways Monday and the unions' reply Tuesday. The companies proposed that workers whose jobs are eliminated be permitted to take other similar even if the transfer involves the crossing of union jurisdic- tions. The proposal would have such workers take their seniority with them. The unions also quarrelled with a management conten- tion that employment cannot be maintained for rail workers in the face of a shrinking number of railway jobs through a process of whereby jobs of workers with a certain level of seniority would disappear only if there were retirements or deaths. The railways said attrition is not feasible there is no complete match between vacancies and Union suggested that layoff figures provided by the railways may be partly because some layoffs were seasonal and would not affect an attrition partly because some employees were laid off more than once in a year and these layoffs were calculated as if each one represented a separate employee. The which represent non-operating railway also suggested that layoff would be provided to protected workers who could not be given alternative 93 per cent of their regular basic ear- instead of 80 per cent as proposed by the companies. have calculated that full maintenance of take-home on average throughout the requires that an employee receive a layoff benefit equal to 93 per FANTASTIC is the only Defying All odds to Vanta's Economy Meats from VANTA'S SERVICE ADVANCE Glass Aluminum Co. 231 12th St. 'B' North Phone 327-1581 Extends their Best Wishes to VANTA'S ECONOMY MEATS For their marvelous renovations in their meat market.

YOU CAN TAKE HEART OTTAWA If you're planning to apply for any of the approximately jobs in the federal public service but fear that your age or number of dependents may spoil your chances of getting the job of your take heart. The Public Service Commission announced Tuesday that applicants no longer have to state this information. In there are no questions about your status in these areas on the commission's new application forms. Even question No. 8 on the new which asks how you wish to be addressed in gives you a chance to duck revealing your sex. Applicants responding to that question may tick off Miss or Ms. if you don't mind thus being identified as either male or female. But they also have the option of marking the little box which says give name and The only question that possibly could trip you up and lead you inadvertently to reveal your sex is the third question which asks for your given name and initials. If you write down Mary or Susan chances are you'll be pegged as female But although the form doesn't say an applicant can opt to simply state last name and advises Christine director of public relations for the public service commission. By JEFF CABRUTHERS Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Almost five per cent of more than batches of leading Canadian drugs listed in the latest federal drug quality and price prescribing guide for doctors and pharmacists failed federal government quality tests carried out under the multi-million-dollar drug quality program. And close to one out of every four Canadian manufacturers with products listed in the 240- page QUAD 1974 Index have at least one of their products designated as having failed to meet minimum quality stan- dards specified on the product labels and required under Canadian law for the products to be sold. One Pharmetics Ltd. of Pointe has 12 lots listed in the QUAD Index which failed federal compared to the total of 83 failed drug batches listed in the Index. The failed drugs from Phar- metics include one batch of the heart drug 0.25 milligram which fail- ed to meet content uniformity one batch of the oral anti-diabetic drug tolbutamide 500 mg. and three batches of the anti- anxiety drug 200 mg tablets. A Toronto Noco Drugs had seven lots of drugs listed as failing the fed- eral including one batch of the anti-convulsant drug Diphenylhydantoin and one batch of the urinary antibacte- rial drug Nitrofurantoin. The QUAD available at a copy from Informa- tion lists the numbers of all lots which failed. In issuing the QUAD which is designed to be used by doctors and pharmacists in selecting less-costly prescription drugs for the federal health department said only that had been taken in all cases of drugs which failed the federal tests. Tuesday. Dr. A. B. assistant deputy minister of added that all failed drugs which represented a potential hazard to health have been removed from the market. He said that he did not know whether any of the other fail- ed drugs might still be on the market in though he said he would know by the end of the week. Roger co- ordinator of the QUAD suggested earlier that some of the products could still be on the market if the health department judged them not to be a hazard to health. Dr. Morrison noted that some of the could be described as violations of the law. A number of lots of one for failed because they were not sugar- coated as called for in the ap- propriate quality standard. This standard has since been amended to cover the drugs. Under the Food and Drugs all of the failed drugs un- covered by the latest QUAD surveys cannot be sold legally in Canada. Dr. Morrison said the federal health department takes whatever action it feels is from ordering products considered hazar- dous off the market im- mediately to sending a warn- ing letter to a manufacturer telling him not to do it but allowing the product to stay on the market. In this latest the drugs nave been tested at automated federal laboratories in Toronto to see whether the individual products not only meet four basic chemical tests but also whether they meet the pharmaceutical in- dustry quality standard listed on the product label When a drug manufacturer lists a tough industry standard on the label of his that standard becomes by law the minimum quality criteria that must be met for the drug to be sold in Canada. The lots listed in the QUAD Index cover some 92 different drug types manufac- tured under brand names by 127 Canadian manufac- turers. They include some of the most critical drugs in terms of precision of dose and in terms of medical as well as the leading drugs in terms of dollar sales in Canada.
