Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, Morcn ]3, ,1972 THE LETHBRIOGE Strikes can't be banned by law OTTAWA (CP) Any one believes "strikes can be botishcd by any legislation or ny legalistic imposition of an utside body on free men and rec workers is making a. Donald MacDonald says. Mr. lUacDonald, president of he Canadian Labor Congress, ays he believes there are "no that can IK prescribed >y law which will stop workers rom striking if tlicy so decide." Tic proof of this was that trikes bad taken place even in otalitarian countries w here hey are outlawed. Interviewed on the CTV lele-rtsion network program Ques-ion Period, he said free bargaining "is one of the hallmarks of the difference" between democratic attd totalitarian states. He said recent uprisings in East Berlin and Hungary started as worker strikes and snowballed as students and others joined in. Tito labor leader was asked about recent statements by George Mcany, a top United States labor official for many years, that ways oilier than stjikes should be found to rc-sojve labor disputes. Mr. MacDonald said (here arc differences between the industrial relations systems in Ihe U.S. and Canada.

John Everingham, who said he was just released by the Pa-thet Lao after 23 days in captivity, said he had several conversations with his captors about the fate of U.S. pilots shot down and captured in Laos. "They told me thai in Sam-neua province the entire population lives underground because of intense U.S. Everingham said. The Palhet Lao, unlike (lie Worth Vietnamese, never have released a list of prisoners. The U.S. embassy in Vientiane lists 263 Americans missing in Laos.

If a grievance arose during this time, it had to be settled hrough arbitration, was not so L. Hie United States. The right to strike in Canada "Ls not an unreslrictcd or unin- hibited one." Before a legal strike, workers had to go Ihrough "a long process of ne- gotiation, mediation, concilia- tion, arbitration." Asked about complaint of strikes by public servants, Mr. MacDonald said there have heen "ex a ctly five legal strikes" since legislation gave federal public servants the option to strike or accept bind- ing arbHration. More than 200 were negotiated without strikes. Mr. MacDonald admitted there have been some illegal wildcat walkouts but said these arose "not because of wages but because of intolcrale condi- tions" imposed on workers who saw no other way to get action. The government had Hie right (o designate certain public serv- ice workers as essential and deny them the rtylit to strike. Mr. MacDonald .said the govern- ment "takes advantage" of this to "chop out huge blocks" of workers. Among heat and power plant workers in Ottawa, for fix- ample, it bad designated workers of a total of Asked about the recent strike of air traffic controllers that tied up aircraft movement, Mr. MacDonald said that while these workers are in "a very, very important position'1 they are not essential NOT ESSENTIAL Only about 20 per cenl of the Canadian population "ever trav- els by air" and there were many alternative means of transport. Trying to describe the controllers as essential was "the type of exaggeration that we're so prone to today." There had been suggestions that more public servants he de- clared essential and subject to compulsory arbitration to settle contracts. "Binding arbitration freely opted for and accepted is one thing and I think that if people want to, that's their right, they can do Mr. MacDonald said. "Compulsory arbitration is something different.
