Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, March 18, 1971 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 11 Government, opposition battle over new bill Labor problems continue to remain Britain's biggest problem LONDON (CP) - The dust is i settling from Britain's historic 47-day postal strike but a welter 4f other labor problems remains the country's big headache. Auto workers, railwaymen, teachers, engineers, transport workers-all are generating trouble for officialdom and industry. In Parliament the Conservative government is embroiled with the Labor Opposition over Its controversial industrial relations bill to curb wildcat strikes and generally stabilize union-management dealings. The most painful labor dispute of the moment is a strike of 50,000 workers that has tied up ail Ford's 21 auto-making and parts plants for 34 days. The company has offered 14-percent increases-well over the government's anti-inflation norm of around nine per cent- but the strikers are holding out for raises of up to 25 per cent. Henry Ford, chairman of the huge corporation, kept a pre-strike lunch date with Prime Minister Heath Monday and later said to reporters that tt will take up to four years before faith in Ford of Britain is restored abroad. He hinted the strike may have robbed. the country of any further Ford investment before 1975. CEILING BREACHED Meanwhile, Vauxhall Motors, faced with heavy wage demands from 27,000 manual workers, . has started its offering at the 14-per-cent point where Ford quit and already is severely breaching the government's unofficial ceiling. On Thursday millions of Britons will be affected by the second big one-day strike called this month to register protest against the Industrial Relations Bill. The Amalgamated Engineering Union, which called the March 1 walkout, has been Joined by the Transport and General Workers' Union, largest In the country. They will bring about three million members out on strike and render millions more idle as plants close for the day. Production losses are forecast at about �70 million ($175 million) though much of this likely will be overtaken later. Among casualties will be London's ail-. ing newspapers, expected to drop �300,000 ($750,000). The Trades Union Congress, Britain's central labor organization, opposes the legislation but also opposes the political strikes. But the two unions-Britain's largest-remain adamant. OPPONENTS PENALIZED The AEU announced Tuesday It has imposed �5 fines on 54 members who ignored the March 1 strike call at financially staggering Rolls-Royce. It has suspended 10 shop stewards at the Portsmouth naval docks for opposing strike action. In Parliament, Employment Minister Carr moved Monday night an amendment to his enormous Industrial Relations Bill to ease its ban on the union closed shop - notably for the benefit of actors and seamen- and the gesture almost backfired.

Biologist expects big fish loss EDMONTON (CP) - Alberta's chief fisheries biologist says a substantial kill of fish is expected this spring in lakes in the central part of the province. Martin Paetz disclosed the problem in discussing a report that about 250,000 young Walleye are endangered by lack of oxygen in Carson Lake, 100 miles northwest of Edmonton. Mr. Paetz, who declined to specify the other lakes, said "we expect difficulties in some smaller lakes' west of Edmonton." Oxygen tests normally taken in the month that remains between now and the annual spring breakup will reveal more fully which lakes should be affected by oxygen lack, Mr. Paetz said. PRODUCTION DROPS WASHINGTON (AP) - Industrial production in the United States tumbled sharply last month, dealing the Nixon administration a blow in its plan to expand the economy this year. The Federal Reserve Tmrd said Monday that output c' the country's factories declined four-tenths of one per cent after two straight months of increases following a recovery from the automobile strike of last fall.
