The deadlines may vary slightly in some cities. "Canada needs a better serv- Mr. Ouellet told reporters. There had been "lots" of com- plaints about slow service at the local level. "The aim of the post office is constantly to improve the qual- ity of its products and services in every area. I feel that our assured mail program in- corporating a local deadline is a clear indication that our efforts are meeting with success He said the only exception to the national next-day delivery services would involve mail travelling from west to east against time zones. The post office mails letters to itself each week to monitor the present delivery program and Mr. Ouellet says an efficiency rate of 95 per cent has been achieved. "Our present target is to bet- ter performance by at least three per cent in the immediate future.' Canadian unions grow OTTAWA (CP) Organized labor reported a 7.2-per-cent in- crease in membership at the begining of 1972 over 1971, but the proportion of workers be- longing to United States-based international urions dropped from the previous year. Statistics in the latest issue of the federal government's an- nual report Labor Organizations in Canada show unions with American headquarters repre- sented 59.6 per cent of Cana- dian-organized labor in 1972. There was a total of union members 34.4 per cent of the non-agricultural work force. At the beginning of 1971, 62 per cent of Canadian union members belonged to in- ternational unions. While the proportion of union members in internationals to faster growth of all-Canadian unions, break- aways from U.S-based groups and organization of new un- membership totals rose. About one-half the increase in union membership was due to inclusion in the report of three new groups, the Quebec Teachers' Corp and registered nurses' associations in Alberta and British Colum- bia. The rate of increases in or- ganized labor without these three groups would be about 3.7, still double the percentage of 1.7 per cent between 1970 and 1971. At the beginning of last year, 72.8 per cent of organized labor was affiliated to the Canadian Labor Congress for a to- tal of In 1971, the per- centage was 74.8 per cent. More than three-quarters of CLC membership belongs to in- ternational unions and 70 per cent also were affiliated with the American labor federation, the AFL-CIO. Another 9 2 per cent of total union membership was affil- iated to the Quebec-bassd Con- federation of National Trade Unions (CNTU) early in 1972. Later in the year, the member CNTU split, with a dis- sident wing forming the member Centrale des Syndicats Democratiques. Only one-half of one per cent of the union total belonged to the Council of Canadian Unions in early 1972. The council since has carried put a number of successful raids against inter- national unions in British Co- lumbia and the Yukon. OTHER GROUPS CITED Other union members belong to unaffiliated groups, both na- tional and international, such as the Teamsters. Largest of the unions is still the United Steelworkers of America, which reported members early in 1972. They now claim members. Two national unions repre- senting employees at the gov- ernment level are the next in size The Canadian Union of Public Employees then claiming 153.000 members and now reporting about 000, is second. Third on the list is the Public Service Alliance of Canada, which represents federal em- ployees. Early in 1972, they claimed members, but now the union counts ad- herents. Other unions with more than 50 000 members are the United Auto Workers', Carpenters', Quebec Teachers' Corporation, Teamsters', International Brotherhood of Electrical Work- ers, Service Employees Na- tional Federation International Association of Machinists and International Workers'.
