Mr. Hohol, who said he would irc-fer national arbitration, was o meet in Toronto today with Fern Guindon, his Ontario counterpart. The strike already had been declared illegal in Quebec and British Columbia, for different reasons. Ontario's move to impose ar- bitration is believed to be the iirst instance of intervention by :he province in the collective- bargaining process in recent years. The strike by members of the International Union o! Elevator Constructors began last Aug. 28 in Hamilton and spread across the country by Sept. 10. PROJECTS DELAYED Since the strike began, scores of construction projects have been held up and new apart- ment buildings have stooy wages of about a week, lave announced that one-day of- ficial strikes next Sunday and Thursday. Two of these have been held already.

Manpower Minister Robert An- clras said the directive issued by his deputy minister, Jacques Desroches. last Friday was tha result of a misunderstanding. Issued to manpower staff, it ordered that UIC benefit recipients be given first chanca at available jobs. Mr. Andras said ha had tha impression the order would ap- ply only to jobs created by the Local Initiatives Program He said he would with- draw Ihe order if necessary. ABILITY TO DO JOB Opposition parties Monday charged it was a deliberate con- travention of ttie Unemploy- ment Insurance Act, which states that first priority for allo- cating a job is the candidate's ability to perform the job. NDP House leader Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre) accused Mr. Andras of insulting the House with appar- ent discrepancies in his state- ment. NDP Leader David Lewis said the minister should make a full statement in the House say- ing "where he was wrong and where the mistake was made." Mr. Andras said later he would make such a statement In the Commons today. The opposition's belligerent mood carried over into the de- bate on a government bill tliat would raise to million from million the EDC ceil- ing on loans and guarantees. The bill would also raise corporation's capital to million from million. The corporation makes loans to foreign countries and corpo- rations for the purchase of Ca- nadian goods and services.
