Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 8, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta J e A. E. CROSS For Custom Framing PHONE 327-2673 The Lethkidge Herald SECOND SECTION Lethbridge, Alberta, Friday, May 8, 1970 PAGES 11 TO 22 RESTAURANT AND PANCAKE HOUSE BANQUET FACILITIES FOR 75 PEOPLE Strike Plans Remain There was no change Friday morning in the strike plans for Monday noon by 28 city-em- ployed electrical workers. The workers, members of'the Local 254, Lethbridge Unit, In- ternational Brother hood of Electrical Workers, served no- tice Thursday morning of the intended strike action. City Manager Tom Ferguson said this morning there have been no approaches to the city by the union to enter into fur- ther negotiations. In Red Deer a two year contract, signed by negotiators for the city and the IBEW, was approved by city council Thursday night, heading off a threatened strike there today. The contract provides wage increases of 22 per cent, in three stages, for that city's 19 union organized electrical workers. The settlement was worked out with provincial mediator J. R. Button of Calgary, who was also mediator in Lelh- bridge April 20 to 22 for talks which proved fruitless. Under the new contract for journeyman linemen in Red Deer, wages increase to per hour from retroactive to Jan. 1, 1970; to Sept. 1 and to May 1, 1971. The agreement, ratified by Lethbridge city council but re- jected by the union member- ship, would have increased the Lethbridge wage for journey- man linemen to per hour from retroactive to Jan. 1, 1970. It would then increase to Sept. .1, 1970 and to May 1, 1971.

Expanded Role In Education Seen For Private Industry Greater involvement by pri- vate industry in the field of ed- ucation was forecast this week by Dr. Don Smellie cf Utah State University. Speaking at an educational media seminar at the Univer- sity of Lethbridge, Dr. Smellie pointed out a recent example hi Texarkana, Texas.

Other general movements in education he said include moves toward non graded schools, the inquiry approach to learning and flexible scheduling. He also examined the tradi- tional attitude toward the time factor in' teaching, noting there has been a tendency to look upon the time factor as being constant.

Sanitary Fill Ready Garbage disposal activities should switch to the new sani- tary land fill site sometime next week, a spokesman for the city's engineering department said Thursday. Gravelling of the access road from Stafford Drive has been completed and the site will be opened for public use as soon as finishing touches have been completed. The new site is located in the coulee east of Stafford Drive, about mile north of 13th Ave. N. According to the engineer- ing department spokesman, the site was used as a dump by the City many years ago. At that time refuse was simply dumped over the side cf the coulee, he said. Provincial regulations now stipulate that land fill opera- tions include tlie digging of a pit or "cell" which must be fill- ed and covered over in one day. This type of operation, which will be used at the new site, should eliminate much of the customary odor and problems with flying paper.

Mill said Lcthbridge's de- ireability and attitude towards 'anting Swift were also decid- ng factors. Lethbridge and southern Al- erta may be a viable rom a standpoint cf economics, ie said.
