Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, June 19, 1974 Montana floods worsen KILLINGS. Mont (AF) A potential flood situation in southern Montana worsened Tuesday as the Yellowstone River rose a foot above flood stage here and at Livingston. No Billings homes were evacuated, but Livingston authorities declared a state of emergency The national weather ser- vice predicted the water would continue to rise over- night, but no crest has yet been forecast A heavy snow- pack and unseasonably hot weather combined to cause the rapid rise in the river level, and recent thunder- storms have aggravated the situation N A T P (ALLIANCE OF TORTURE AND OPPRESSION Truck operators protest low wages NA TO protests Greek demonstrators met NATO foreign ministers arriving on Parliament Hill Tuesday for opening ceremonies of a two-day conference. Signs carried by the demonstrators in Ottawa claimed the Greek foreign minister Spyndon Tetenes represented no one. Union recognition key issue EDMONTON (CP) A bat- tle tor union recognition has become the core of a week- long dispute between truck operators and their employers in the Edmonton area. About 390 independent construction truck operators withdrew services last week to protest low wages and are now striking for the right to collective bargaining A dozen members of Local 362 of the General Teamsters Union, now representing about 500 independent truck operators, reached an im- passe this week when they met with a 25-man committee representing their employers. The union has asked the companies to sign a letter of understanding which obligates them to hire only truckers who belong to the teamster's local Employers irom the two largest contractors, the Alberta Roadbuilders Association and the Alberta Ready-Mixed Concrete Association, said they refuse to recognize the Teamsters as sole bargaining agent for the truckers. "This really negates free management spokesman Ron McFarland said in an interview. "It means that those truckers who are not members of the teamsters would be forced into joining the union or they wouldn't be able to work." "There are a lot of in- dividual truckers not wanting to join the union I can't say there's been intimidation or coercion. "Let's just say the pressures have been put to bear on the independent truckers." Mr. McFarland said most of the firms do not object to wage increases but they can- not agree to a blanket rate because of the variance in dilferent jobs. Union spokesman Larry Martin agreed that a wage increase would not be difficult to get but the teamsters union must first be recognized. The Teamster's local cannot be certified under the Labor Act with the Alberta Board of Industrial Relations because the truckers are considered to be independent businessmen "They (management) sit in their big business organizations while the truckers are bound the rest of their lives to get on their knees and plead for recogni- tion from their Mr. Martin said. "Collective begging they'll accept; collective bargaining they won't he added. The truckers are seeking an increase to 7.5-and 8.5-cents a ton mile from 4.2-and 8.2- cents and an hourly-rate increase to and from the current to Tim Spasic, a dump truck owner, said operating cost increases justify wage demands.
