STAFF WALK OUT The strike by the Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 254 lethbridge Unit, brought a decision from 56 inside workers at city hall to stay off the job. The union set up a picket line outside city hall which the members of Local 70 Canadian Union of Public Employees refuse to cross. The offices in city hail are being manned by non-union employees and some casual workers. An official said the workers are attempting to maintain the services at city hall. A Calgary lawyer, W. B. Gill, speaking for the city this morning, said the inside workers' walk out is an illegal strike. The city manager said employees off the job becuuse of their de- cision not to cross the picket lines, will not be paid during their absence. Opposes Applications For Air Service Change Chamber Brief Endorsed By Council Lethbridge city night endorsed a council last brief which has been submitted by the Lethbridge Chamber of Com- merce to the Air Transport Committee in Ottawa. The submission opposes the joint application by Pacific Western Airlines to provide ser- vice to Lethbridge and by Air Canada to discontinue its local service. Pointing out several reasons why'the applications should be rejected, the brief emphasizes the federal government's re- gional air policy, which indi- cates the principal deciding factor should be the nature of the route. A main contention of the brief is the nature of the situa- tion in Lethbridge being such that approval of the applications could force the third level car- rier (Time Airways Ltd.) out of business, resulting in a de- creast in the frequency of ser- vice.. Denial of the joint applica- tion is requested on the grounds that a long term guarantee could not be given to assure Lethbridge and area will be given service comparable to that now being provided. R. AKROYD PLUMBING-HEATING GASFITTING LTD. 2634 21st Ave. S. For New Installation! and Alterations PHONE 328-7106 FREE ESTIMATES Council agreed that a night letter expressing support for the brief should be sent im- mediately, followed by a letter from City Manager Tom Fer- guson before the May 15 dead- line for such submissions. Council will also advise Gordon Taylor, Alberta high- ways and transport minister of the endorsation of the brief. Mr. Taylor has been requested by Time Airways Lid. to make 'representations on its behalf to the Air Transport Committee regarding Pacific Western's ap- plication. Both Alderman Yau g h a n Hembroff and Vera Ferguson suggested that council support cf the chamber was not enough and further action should be taken. Aid. Ferguson presented a Labor Council Supports Strikers The Lethbridge and District Labor Council has taken a stand with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 254 Lethbridge Unit, supporting the strike for higher wages. Gerry Litchfield, president of the council said the labor coun- cil was disappointed in the city fathers for not having the con- fidence in their negotiating committee.

"It looks to us that the city is getting advice and counsel- ling from another source in another city in Alberta." Mr. Litchfield said the differ- ence between the city council and its negotiating committee was evident when council fail- ed to ratify an agreement which was agreed to by both the ne- gotiating committee and the provincial mediator, following meetings April 28 and 29. The city is sticking to a me- morandum of agreement sign- ed by the union and the city Feb. 12 which would give the journeyman linemen per hour May 1, 1971. This agree- ment was not ratified by the union membership. He stated that at this time, the labor council could only add moral support to the strike action, but if requested, the council would give support by other means. He indicated the "other means" would include some fi- nancial support and the back- ing of all other unions affected by "picket lines.

Open Saturdays Evenings by Appointment PHONE 327-2822 notice of motion that the city make strong representation to the transport board, Lethbridge MP Dearie Gundlock and H. A. (Bud) Olson, federal agricul- ture minister objecting to the applications by Air Canada and Pacific Western. The method of representation is to be handled by Aid. Steve Kotch and such other members of council as was deemed necessary. Aid. Kotch, who is also chair- man of the chamber's trans- portation committee, told coun- cil that an important step in the blocking of the applications was a survey of air service and needs in Lethbridge, which could be undertaken by a firm headed by E. H. LaBorde of Calgary. The chamber, he said, has outlined some reasons but fchev are mostly personal judg- ments and what is needed is a professional survey with statis- tics to back up these judge- ments. After considerable discus- sion, council passed a motion to table the matter until a meet- ing could be arranged. with Economic Development Com- mission chairman Dennis O'Connell and mayor Andy Anderson. It is expected that the meeting will be held as soon as possible.

Council's motion approving the grant also contained a clause that the hospital take steps to become part of the Lethbridge Municipal Hospital District.
