Forest industry officials ex- pressed little hope Tuesday for a last minute settlement in the involving workers. Mike interior labor relations association chief said there had been no contract talks with the IWA since talks broke off Saturday. IWA chief negotiator Wyman Trineer told industry officials Saturday that unless a settlement was reached by noon the union would shut them down with strike action. He said that although the union cannot technically strike because a mediator's report has still not been don't there is any way we can hold Operations at Kelowna's Crown Zellerbach sawmill and plywood plants were shut by striking IWA members midnight Sunday night and pickets continued Tuesday.

And just because the NEB acts the public this does not mean that any person who feels he will be af- fected incidentally or com- mercially has a right to be heard by the legal counsel for the two companies argued. Dow Chemical and Dome represented by the same legal were arguing against a motion by British and four other parties that calls for the Federal Court to squash decisions by the NEB to hold hearings on an ethylene export application and to force the NEB to hold full public hearings on the matter. Dow has applied to the NEB for a license to export some 10 billion pounds of ethylene to the U.S. between 1977 and 1987. The ethylene in question would be made from Alberta natural gas derivatives. The legal counsel for Dow and Dome contend- ed that intervenors in the Dow ethylene export hearing did not have any of their rights abridged when the NEB did not allow them a public including the right to cross-examine Dow since the intervenors don't have a right in the first place and since they didn't specifically ask for the privilege of cross- examination during the proceedings.

Counsel for Dow and Dome also contended that the Dow elhylene export hearing was inextricably linked with the previous pipeline that no new evidence was introduced in the Dow and that therefore the NEB was cor- rect in ruling it had sufficient information before it so that a full public hearing on the ethylene application wasn't required. Dow and Dome ar- gued that there was and still is a need for ex- handling of the Dow ethylene export applications in light of the im- portance of the proposed Dow ethylene project to Canada as a whole. Dow proposes to build a world-scale ethylene using ethane as at Fort with production starting late in 1976. Dow and Dome noted that the cost of the Alberta-to- Sarnia which will have one of two pipelines carrying Dow has already escalated in cost from to and will continue to escalate at 20 per cent per year. pute is an IWA bid for jurisdiction over independent loggers. The companies main- tain the union can only achieve jurisdiction through a certification but the union wants jurisdiction in- cluded in the collective agreement. Ray president of the Interior Logging said he totally re- jects any clause in an industry IWA contract asking for mandatory unionization of logging firms which deal with members of the Interior Forest Labor Relations Association. Barney spokesman for the Weyerhaeuser sawmill in said the com- pany has offered a 12-per- cent wage increase with a minimum increase of 65 cents an hour in a one year con- tract. Wage increases would range from 14 to 25 per cent with job category revisions. Base rate for interior woodworkers is an hour. The offer would raise the base rate to an hour.
