Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHSHIDGE May Window shake Not all hand shakes are this informal, but this one was a change for NDP Leader David Lewis on July 8 election campaign. Quebec delegates spark uproar Postal workers take tough stand QUEBEC (CP) The Cana- dian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) resolved Tuesday to boycott "in every possible way" automation of mail handling until the government agrees to negotiate the introduction of technological changes in the post office. The resolution further empowered the union's national executive to refuse to have membership ratify any collective agreements without talks about mechanization which threatens the classification levels of post office workers The CUPW plans an information campaign to encourage the public and other unions to stop using the postal code. Other forms the boycott will take have not yet been spelled out "It's time for the federal government to do something for its own employees because private industry already has the right to negotiate technological said Jean-Claude Parrot, national chief steward of the member CUPW. "If they don't, maybe there won't be a postal service in Canada DOWNGRADED JOBS The gradual introduction of equipment to handle coded mail led to a government proposal downgrading the jobs of some mail sorters who would be paid less as simple code machine operators. The proposal prompted a three- week national strike by postal workers in April. "This is a more radical ap- proach and a new orientation is needed if we are to be a fighting said Marcel Perreault, president of the Montreal CUPW local The Montreal local triggered the national postal strike with its protests against the effects of automation in the post office No sooner had the convention agreed to the Quebec resolution for further boycott than the Quebec delegation came into shouting conflict with the national executive and delegations from other provinces. National president Joe Davidson refused to continue as chairman of the convention saying he was "bloody well fed up The uproar was sparked by Quebec delegates wishing to register dissent from a vote turning down another Quebec resolution asking that the cur- rent system of maintaining se- niority only in each class of job be maintained. Other resolutions call for universal seniority which would allow a worker who changes to another job within the post office to keep his acquired seniority and not have to start from the bottom again. Mr Dawson said recording dissent would take too long Mr Perreault explained that until the question of dis- affihation from we Cuuncil of Postal Unions is settled and the CUPW is accredited on its own, such fundamental questions cannot be adequately handled The Council of Postal Unions groups both the CUPW and the Letter Carriers Union of Canada in negotiations The CUPW is to conduct a referendum among its members on disaffihation from the council because the national executive feels the problems faced by the letter carriers and the inside workers now are different and resolution of the postal workers troubles are being held up Town House Pure From Concentrate Sweet or Unsweetened, 48 fl. oz. tin Enjoy TOWN HOUSE at YOUR HOUSE!
