Post VANCOUVER (CP) -The International Woodworkers of America agreed Wednesday to a suggestion by employers that a provincial mediator continue to operate as the union seeks a contract for men. The mediator's jurisdiction, during which there can be no strike or lockout, expired Wed- nesday.. Employers called for an indefinite extension of his term; the IWA agreed to a 10- day extension. Meanwhile, a second union withdrew from round-the-clock talks aimed at ending a lock- out of nine unions and a strike by a 10th in the British Colum- bia construction industry. The heat and frost insulators walked out after two days of negotiations with the Construc- tion Labor Relations Associa- tion, following the action taken by plumbers Monday. The walkouts were prompted, the unions said, by the insistence that contracts for tlvc nine unions involved in the lockout all be signed at the same time.
