The associated non- operating unions contended that the plan is feasible without moving workers across union lines and opposed the railways' demand. They also oppose the portability of seniority to new jobs in other unions The proposed job-security as proposed by the rail- would apply to non- operating workers with eight years seniority and would provide 80 per cent of a worker's basic pay if no work can be found for him and he is laid off The unions want 93- per-cent layoff pay The job-security question is one of two major issues that deadlocked contract negotia- tions and led to a national rail strike last summer Mr Justice Hall was ap- pointed arbitrator after Parliament ended that strike by legislation He ordered the parties to return to the bargaining table and work out a job-security plan.

Major unresolved issues in- clude the fate ot wharf some of them with up to 47 years whom the railways would exclude from the plan. Mr Justice Hall also was asked by shopcraft unions to provide a clause in their agreement that would protect them against work lost through the railways' contracting out of work nor- mally done by shop employees The arbitrator said it would take time for him to make a decision on the questions put to him this week. But he told a reporter it would be a matter af rather than before his decision is reached Another major unresolved ssue in last year's dispute is he size of freight train crews. Mr. Justice Hall is to preside tver hearings on that issue text week.
