Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, June 22, 1974 Tighting spirit' at chess tourney NICE. France (CP) A three-minute "agreed" draw be- tween the Soviet chess contender Anatoly Karpov and Sweden's Ulf Anderson was overlooked by the organizers of the 21st world chess olympiad Friday. Before the olympiad started, it was made clear that players who refused to show "fighting spirit" and "agreed" to early draws would be penalized and not be awarded the half-point. But in Friday's match, in which Karpov had the black pieces, the judges decided to take into consideration the fact the Swedish player had been fighting out his adjourned game against Gheorghiu of Romania throughout Friday morning and was exhausted. Karpov was seen to lean over and comment to his opponent on the second move. After a short discussion, both men smiled, played another eight moves quickly and shook hands to register the first draw of the day before many of the other games had even started. Airport firemen get hefty pay raises OTTAWA (CP) Airport firefighters who staged illegal strikes across the country in April were awarded hefty pay raises Friday of at least over one year, but Vancouver local members who began the walkouts remained unhappy. The largest group of fire- fighters, who are employed by the federal government, will see their annual pay go to 851 retroactive to April 1. The previous figure was On Oct. 6, a further increase to is forthcoming. The contract, which was finally decided after binding ar- bitration, runs to March 31, 1975. Other higher-paid but smaller groups of firefighters will reach a pay-range of 943 to by October, up from to The one-year raise amounts to percentage increases total- ling between 17 .and 23.5 per cent, with the larger percen- tage raises at the lowest-paid levels. The award applies nationally. But the award does not solve the issue of regional p'ay, which was the major question in the first strikes. The walkouts, initiated by British Columbia locals of the member bargaining unit, began when members were unhappy with a tentative agreement which would have provided total raises of 30 per cent over a 26-month contract. The B.C. members, who said they were being paid 000 a year less than local municipal firemen, demanded a bigger increase and regional pay. The strikes then spread to other centres, particularly in the West, and severely hampered air travel in April. Vancouver and its suburbs generally have the highest pay rates in the country. The Public Service Alliance of Canada, bargaining for the firemen, had initially sought raises of 34.6 per cent in the first year and 10 per cent in the second year of a two-year agreement. The arbitration award, handed down by Judge Rene Lippe, says the parties con- cerned should make an effort before the next set of negotia- tions to resolve the regional versus national pay issue. The alliance has a policy, adopted at its 1973 national convention, to bargain for pay parity across the country. Alliance president Claude Edwards said Friday the un- ion will continue to support national pay rates until directed otherwise by its convention or by the union directors. The next con- vention is in 1976. This could bring more con- flicts within the union. Alliance members in B.C. who are part of other bargaining units have also called for regional pay. In Vancouver, Bill Brown, a spokesman for the firemen, said the local members there are "completely dissatisfied" with the award. Mr. Brown said the fire- fighters were also unhappy with the alliance performance in negotiations and would con- sider leaving the union. "The only good thing about the contract is that it goes over just one he said. "That gives us an opportunity to leave sooner."

Allan Williams (L-West Vancouver Howe Sound) and Pat McGeer (L Vancouver Point Grey) told 500 miners and prospectors who were demonstrating against the government's Mineral Royalties Act in almost identical words that they want a re-alignment of parties. "I'm prepared to step outside my own party and join with other said Mr. Williams, a lawyer who has been a Liberal MLA since 1966. "If people don't get behind the Unity Movement, Bill 31 (the Mineral bill) is only the beginning." Dr. McGeer. a brain researcher at the University of B.C. in Vancouver and an MLA for the last 12 years, said it's time for all "free enterprise MLAs in B.C." to search their consciences and to decide which to put first, personal gain or the larger good. "I'm prepared to drop my party label if we could have a united party." DECISIVE BREAK Dr. McGeer said he would continue to sit and fight as a Liberal MLA until the new party comes along, and Mr. Williams said he didn't think their announcement "does anything to the Liberal party" but the move was a decisive break with party leader David Anderson. Mr. Anderson has said several times the idea of a "Unity Party" won't work, given the sharp ideological differences and personality clashes between the Liberal, Social Credit and WILLIAM ERICKSON CONSTRUCTION LTD.
