(Canada Customs hours ow tat.ier when Montana went on CALGARY (CP) -Lucerne Foods has made a new contract proposal in hopes of averting a strike by 150 unftfti members set for 6 p.m. Tuesday. The workers, members of the Meat Cutters and Canadian Food and Allied Workers Union, delivered strike notice Wednesday. They are seeking higher wages. Lucerne is the Safeway cwned warehouse that supplies block-ready meat to about 200 Safeway outlets in Alberta and British Columbia. A strike would mean Safeway would have to buy its meat from other packing houses. Dave Stelfox, Lucerne plant manager, charged Friday that the union scuttled a proposed meeting Thursday afternoon. He said the union's international representative arranged the meeting, but it did not take place "because of conditional demands by the union local." "Before the union would meet they demanded the company agree to an across the board wage increase for all employees retroactive to Nov. 15 (when the union was certified at the he said. The company would not agree to this because Lucerne's wage rates would then be higher than the parity rates set by the union in AJberta. he said. But the union denies this saying the company workers are paid about cents an hour Jess than retail employees doing the same job. It seeks wage increases ranging from hourly for the majority of workers to Sfi an hour for four maintenance employees. It says the increases would give the workers parity with retail employees at Safeway and workers in similar fields. Mr Stelfox said the company is asking the union to afrcc to the same collective that the Canadian food and allied workers have with oihor Lucerne <7peralions in Alberta Saturday, March LETHBRIDGE HERALD White beans are becoming U.S. commodity expensive WASHINGTON (AP) White beans are becoming so, expensive the United agriculture department says' it can't afford to donate any to' poor people and schools. -3 Further, say department; bean experts, the price crunch probably will worsen before" new harvests are ready later this year, and even after the harvest the general momentum of food prices may keep beans much higher than a year or so ago. A year ago a one-pound bag sold in U.S. retail stores for 25.7 cents on the average. Last week the agriculture department rejected all offers by vendors to sell dry beans to the government, for donation' to various food programs, at prices ranging 47 to 59 cents a pound at shipping points. Farmers in Michigan, California, Idaho, North Dakota, Nebraska, Coloiado and other bean areas produced a smaller crop last year, about 16.8 million 100-lb. bags compared with 18.1 million in 1972. Consumers turned to beans last year as food prices generally climbed sharply, and export sales to foreign countries also increased. Besides regular customers in Europe, large shipments also have gone to the United Kingdom and Mexico, the department's economic research service says. As a result of the bean drain, farm prices for what reserves remain have jump- ed from slightly more than 10 cents a pound a year ago to 32.5 cents in January. ARE YOU A JONATHAN LIVINGSTON SEAGULL?
