Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 24, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta y, 24, THE LEIHBRIDOE HERALD 13 l.C Finds Way To Head Off Teacher Disputes Shopkeepers Block Roads PARK (ncufcre) Thou- sands of French shopkeepers blocked roads throughout France Monday in a protest against government tax and so- cial security policies. Massive traffic jams built up from Lille in the north to Nice in the south as motorists found roads blocked by barriers of cars and trucks manned by shopkeepers and self-employed persons handing out leaflets ex- plaining their complainls. In the western port of Bor- deaux, riot police charged three limes with rifle butts and tear gas to disperse dcmonslrators but about 150 other demonstra- tors occupied a local Chamber of Commerce to continue the pro'.cst. Protesters say the tax and so- cial security systems discrimi- nate against the self-employed. Deformed Children Get Award LONDON (Reuters) Eight- een children and their parents were awarded an agreed total of today from the com- pany which marketed the drug thaUdomide in Britain. The award was made in the High Court against Distillers Co. (Biochemicals) Ltd., which marketed the tranquillizer under licence from West Ger- many. The award was the latest ol 62 in which damages are being agreed under terms of a settle- ment reached with the com- pany. Thalidoaiide went on sale in Britain in 1938 and was with- drawn in 1961. By THE CANADIAN PRESS Take a lesson, teachers and trustees. British Columbia, Quebec and Prince Edward Island have found ways to eliminate annual teacher contract nego- tiations. P.E.I, and Quebec settled three- and two-year contracts in 19C9. Albert Fogarty, president of the P.E.I. Teachers Federa- tion, says the salary agreement did not achieve parity with other Atlantic provinces. However, negotia- tions can be reopened by mu- tual consent before the agree- ment is up. In B.C., if disputes between local branches of the teach- ers' federation and district school boards are not settled by November, they go to arbi- tration. Trustees like the idea; teachers have some re- servations. "In my opinion we have the best system in says Peter Pouell, vice-president of the B.C. School Trustees Association. "'.yhen agreement Is not possible through negotiation there is an impartial tribunal of one teachers' representa- tive, one school board repre- sentative and one person se- lected in agreement or ap- pointed by the minister of ed- ucation." LEFT IN VACUUM But Des Grady of the teach- ers' federation points out that arbitration rules on salaries only "so very important mat- ters such as education stand- aids, learning conditions and terms of employment are left in a vacuum." Negotiations are going on in six other provinces; Saskat- chewan started last October. New Brunswick will start later this year. Teachere' federations play a big part in Newfoundland, P.E.I, and New Brunswick, where they negotiate directly with the piovincial govern- ment. In other provinces fed- eration locals bargain with school boards; some prov- inces have a mixed system where the federation steps in only if asked. A Cross-Canada Survey by The Canadian Press found that Ontario is the only prov- ince flirting with strike action in the form of mass resigna- tions at the secondary school level. There has never been a shutdown of "schools in the province. Last year teachers in Grey County and Hamilton resigned but the disputes were settled before the resignations took effect. In Alberta, only about a dozen of 201 boards have yel to settle. No strikes are ex- pected. Last September there were two Alberta strikes, the larger in M in burn County for three weeks. 1'AY IS COMPLICATED It would fake a computer to compare teachers' salaries across the country. Most provinces have complicated pay schedules depending on experience, education, whether the school is in the city or country, whether it is separate, public, elementary or second ary. Alberta, New Prince Edward Island, Sas- katchewan and Nova Scoiia have simplified things some- what by providing a similar pay schedule for both primary and second ary school teach- ers. A number of provinces provide isolation pay or other additions to the teachers' in- come. In northern Manitoba, teachers are paid about extra a year. Quebec has an isolation aUowacce which ap- plies not only to the north but to the lower St. Lawrence re- gioii-5840 for a single teacher, for a maiTied person. Alberta also has isola- tion bonuses. In Nova Scoiia, the municipalities of Dart- mouth, Sydney, Port Hawkes- bury and Canso pay a differ- ential up to BREAKDOWN Here is a breakdown by provinces of minimum qualifi- cations and stalling salaries: B.C.: Three years post-sec- ondary education for a pri- mary teacher, five years post-secondary edu- cation for a secondary school teacher, Alia.: Bachelor of education degree, three years, or two years in arts and ore in edu- cation, S a s It.: years at the University of Sas- katchewan's faculty of educa- t i o n. years. mini mum.

Queeii Gels Islands As Gift WHITIANGA, N.Z. (Reuters) The Queen received today as a gift from a Maori tribe four volcanic islands off the cast coast of New Zealand. The islands are uninhabited except for wildlife including "prehistoric" reptiles. They were named the Aldermen by Captain Cook 200 years ago and have been claimed by the Ngati Hei tribe of Maoris for at least the last 750 years. The islands' most famous in- habitants are the Tuatara rep- lizard-like crea- tures which are the only survi- vors of an order which lived years ago. TV Comes First OTTAWA (CP) There are more Canadian households with- out running water than there arc without refrigerators. More homes in Canada -lack hot running water than there are households without televi- sion sets. The statistics show up in a fat new volume entitled Market Re- search Handbook, published Monday by Dominion Bureau of Statistics. The book, on sale for includes the following facts about the Canadian households in 1968: households without piped water indoors, with piped water only. households burn wood to heat the home, use wood or coal for cooking. -Only households lack electric refrigerators and have no electric washing machine. of households with automatic washing machines al- most tripled to in seven years; those with electric or gas dryers mullipled at about the same pace to bout one in automatic dishwashers. households lacked a telephone, but only lomes lacked at least one TV set. There were homes with two or more television sets in 1963 and households uilh color jump from only homes just two years earlier. Radios outnumber households in Canada by about two to one. Not counting car radios, Canadian households have one radio, have two, have three and have four or more. Tivo-car households became almost as common in J968 as two-telephone home households had two or more cars and had two or more telephones. One chart traces an accelera- tion of popularity ill motorcy- cles in the 1S60S. The total reg- istered in Canada roared ahead over five years to to 1968 from in 19C2.
