Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 - THE IFTHBRIOCE HERAVD - Saturday, Mareli 6, 1971 IJ of L work hit Walkout' talks Monday Representatives of union, construction management and the University of Lethbridge will decide Monday the steps necessary to resolve the wildcat walkout which halted U of L construction Thursday afternoon and Friday. Roy Berlando, secretary of the Building C o n s t r uctdoo Trades Council, wMch represents all six of Lethbridge's 14 construction unions involved in the dispute, said, "The bone of contention is a clause in the construction trade union agreement which says every subcontractor that comes on any job must be unionized." Alberta Government Telephones has a contract with the University of Lethbridge ttf install telephone equipment in the Project One building. Plessey Canada Ltd.

Nonman Smith, editor of the Ottawa Journal and hhnself one of Canada's most distinguished journalists, was asked by Has Lethbridge Herald to make an assessment of Mr. Ryan for the benefit of people whose knowledge of him may be confined mostly to television interviews. Mr. Smith sent the following: If I may so so 1 think it is an imaginiative and stimulating thing that the Lethbdbdge Chamber of Commerce shomd Invite Claude Ryan to talk to it of his views on the root question confronting this county. Claude Ryan is a man of sensitivity and integrity. His manners are gentle and his wit and urbanity are a joy to his friends. In Le Devoir he has for some years expressed what many of us thought to be sound views as to how best to develop English - French relations in Canada. We English Canadians proudly quoted him when he warned his fellow Stamp group to meet Wednesday The Lethbridge Philatelic So-dety will introduce stamp collecting to boys of the 11th Lethbridge Scout Troop, at the society's regular meeting Wednesday. The meeting will be held in the Gas Company Auditorium at 7 p.m. The program wiU be a slide presentation by Stanley Gibbons of London, England, entitled Hints for Stamp Collecting. There will be 33 lots of �tamps auctioned - mostly from the United States, from 1926 to the present. There %viU also be some Newfoundland stamps from 1939 to the final issues before Newfoundland became the tenth province. Visitors are welcome at the meeting. French Canadians that they too must be reasonable and be Canadian. We found him then a man of great intelligence but now that he is sayinig things we don't like we tend to feel he has gone astray. I did not agree with him when be joined a group addng f or the release of FLQ prisooers and I disagree with some of the things he has written and said since then. For example, I doubt the move to separatism in Quebec is as wide or popular as he is si^esting. But it is absurd that we should dismiss him as a voice no longer deserving to be heard. Men of the quality of Claude Ryan are needed to continue the long dialogue of this country's future. By hearing Um we can also answ�r him. temational supplier and installer of telephone equipment) has been engaged by AGT as a sub contractor to install some of this equipment. "Representatives of union met Friday wiUi John Hall, trouble - shooter for Poole Construction limited, and representatives of the U of L," Mr. Berlando said. "It was decided Mr. Hall would return to Edmonton to get in touch with AGT, the sub-sub-contractor (Plessey Canada Ltd.) and E. H. Stark, business manager for the International Brotherh o o d of Electrical Workers." Mr. Berlando said Mr. Hall would ask Plessey Canada Ltd employees to sign a temporary union card which would in effect be a union work permit. "We nieet Monday with management to get Mr. Hall's results. If they are negative, union will not stand for any non - union men working on the job. "If the dispute is not setUed Monday, further action would be oonten^lated by union." Construction of the Project One building is proceeding in complete accord with the labor laws and regulations of the province, said R. F.
