Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Union labor ordered VICTORIA (CP) 111 future all contractors awarded public works projects in British Cil umbia will have to employ union labor, Labor Minister Bill King said after introducing a new public works Fair Em- ployment Act In the legislature. A companion piece of legisla- lion introduced by Mr. King at the same tirae makes directors and officers of a corporation liable for its employees' unpaid wages, even if the corporation declares bankruptcy. The act respecting provincial government public works "re- quires as a condition of award- ing government contracts that a collective agreement must be in said Mr. King outside the House. "In other words, any public works contracts will not be awarded unless there is a cer ttfied union and a collective agreement in existence with the company bidding for the contract." Asked why Uie government was discriminating against non- union firms, Mr. King said he thought the new act, which re- places the former public works Fair Wages and conditions of Employment Act of 1951. "re- moves discrimination." "Because on the one hand now, you have companies bid- ding against competitors who are not required to pay a union wage. So this removes that dis- crimination and puts them all on an equal basis to compete." The minister also said that the new act reflects his and the new Democratic Party govern- ment's desire to increase the number of unionized workers in B.C. "I think It's fitting and proper that the government should indi- cate their desire to do business with union contractors." Mr. King said there was "considerable amount" of pub- lic works business going to non- union contractors in the past, _____________________________.
