Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 44 THt LHHMIDGE HHAID Monk 1971 Marine strike traced OTTAWA CP The eight day strike of marine pilots on the Lawrence in 1962 is traced by a royal commission to broken government threats to job and an illegal and arbitrary bureau cratic attempt to make the pi lots pay operating TTie royal commission on pilo in its fourth volume re leased says the strike was the predictable result of the atmosphere of mis misunderstanding and dis agreement that has been devel oping for Its volume de scribes the pilots as a proud and conscientious group that often had to prod a passive gov e r n m e n t administration into long overdue Trouble started in the late 1950s as the income of the pilots rose with the advent of larger and larger In the transport depart ment moved the seaward board ing point for pilots 37 miles east to Les Escoumins from Father The deputy minister of trans port offeredthe pilots to compensate for losses to special PILOTS AGREE The pilots agreed on the only to receive another letter from the deputy minister saying the pilotage authority wouldnt pay the The argument was that pilot earnings were the workload would and Quebec district pilots were mak ing more than those in other The pilots argued that the re versal would cost them up to a about half of them would be and that the system shouldnt be changed at their The royal commission says the changes saved shipowners about a As this situation the Shipping Federation of Can which had been fighting pilotage asked for a fed eral inquiry into pilotage The federation apparently wanted to fix a ceiling on pilot income by making them full civil INVOLVES U PILOTS pilots from the seaway were taking ships as far down river as Montreal and intended to seek permission to take them as far as Father which would have cut heavily into the income of Canadian The Canadians began to talk about a strike as it appeared federal legislation would open the way to the pilots and exempt more ships from using pilots as Leon then transport allayed fears about pilots late in The royal commission says the real reason the transport de partment reversed its initial de cision on the was that it came to share the view of the shipping interests that the pilots were earning too By refusing to implement its promise to reimburse the Quebec pilots for the loss of their unofficial special pilot earnings the authority achieved indirectly a substantial reduc tion in their the royai commission NOT SURPRISING With broken n it wasnt surprising that i the pilots lost confidence m me In early the pilots and the shipping interests still were at Relations were so tense negotiations almost At that critical moment the treasury board observed that in many districts where pilots earnings were very Quebec the govern ment should cease to subsidize pilotage It told the transport depart ment the districts should made by paying operational expenses out of pilo tage and the department told the pilots the cost would be j carl Each pilot nuld bo asesed 4 5 per cenl of income When the 75 Quebec district pilots went on strike April the supervisor took a
