Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Railway men plan mass rallies OTTAWA (CP) Canadian railway employees plan mass rallies in Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto in early June to protest current pensions on Ihe Cana- dian Pacific and Canadian Na- lional Railways. Jack Pickelt of Edmonton, vice-president of the Alterta branch o[ the Railway Employ- ees Pension Association, said today that Ihe railway men will hold rallies in Toronto June 3, Montreal June 4 and Ottawa June 5. This decision, reached al a meeting of the pension associa- tion here, is Uie latest move in the efforts by railwaymen to get railway pensions linked to the formula used in the federal pub- lic service.

Canadian National employees receive a 1.4-per-cent pension. HECEIVE LESS Mr. a CNR brake- man, said CP Rail employees get slightly less than CNA work- ers though they also contribute less money. Mr. Pickett said he presented a brief on pensions representing more than rcrway em- ployees on both railways to Prime Minister Trudeau when the prime minister visited Ed- monton last week, The Ottawa branch of the pen- sion association has also sent telegrams to Manpower Minis- ter Bryce Mackasey and Trans- port Minister Don Jamicson urging support for a better pen- sion deal for Canadian railway- men. As well as representing CNR employees and CP Rail workers, the association speaks for retired rail- waymen, Mr. Pickett said.
