CN Workers Are Discontented With Plan To Reduce Pensions STIIANGB ORIGIN The name dandelion is a cor- ruption of the French dent lie ion meaning lion's tooth. OTTAWA (CP) A top rail- way union official told lire Com- mons transport committee Tuesday that "massive discon- tent" over the Canadian Na- tional Railway pension plan is threatening to undermine con- trac. negotiations which are to begin in November. Irwin V. Clements, chairman of the railway unions' general chairmen's association, urged the committee to take action "in order to prevent a serious deterioration in labor-manage- ment relations prior to the initi- ation of collective bargaining." Mr. Clements stated in a brief to the committee that the main cause of discontent among the membership "can only bo de- scribed as immoral and devious actions taken recently by the company." The 14 railway unions grouped in the chairmen's association are concerned about the recent decision of the company-domi- nated board which administers the CN pension fund to reduce to from the amount the railway must pay over the next CO years to cover back debt to the fund. The beard's decision was based on an actuarial report which staled that increased in- terest rates will generate an "experience surplus" beyond the needs of the pension plan. The fund has invested assets, based mainly on employee con- tributions, Of Mr Clements said the com- pany's unfunded liability of represents nothing more than "deferred wages" to employees and claimed tba write-down in the liability "is little short of embezzlement." It seems apparent, he said, that the actuarial firm which prepared the report as a basis for the action "considers itseli the client of the CNR." 'No doubt, having set the precedent of commandeering JM whole of the present sur- plus, the company will snatch at any opportunity to slough off any further surplus. "The present surplus must not be allowed to subsidize the com- pany's operation nor must any future surplus which may Mr. Clements said. The railway unions believed the increased expectations of the fund should be used to im- prove pension benefits and to tie annual increases in pensions to a cost-of-living index. The unions must have cqua' representation on the pension board.
