Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 13, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta lg _ THE UTHBRIDGE HERAID Wednesday, May 13, 1970 Closed Session The Lclhbridgo public school board met in closed session last night with members of the contract negotiation committee of the Alberta Teachers' Asso- ciation, Local 41. Board chairman Alastair Mont said the reason for the meeting was to d concern on the part of the teachers about the board's recent join- ing of the Lethbridge-Medicine Hat C'ty School Authorities As- sociation. He said the board entered in- to the agreement with no thought of trying to pull the wool over anyone's eyes and that the main reason was that of efficiency. Board members, he added, have little time at their dispo- sal and contract negotiations can be very time consuming. Under the new management, contract talks would be can-led out by a separate negotiating committee acting on behalf of Drug Case Remanded Twenty year old Ricky Wayne Lee of Lethbridge en- tered a plea of not guilty when he appeared in magistrate's court today on charges of pos- session of marijuana. His case was remanded to May 20. Lee was arrested in the city on April 13 by city police. At that time he was on parole for a previous charge of posses- gon of marijuana. -ill four school boards in both cities. Jim Trebble, chairman of the negotiating committee, said he teachers had attended the meeting in order to find out :he board's reasons for joining ,he employers' organization and to present some of the rea- sons why they felt the board should not join. There was con- cern, he added, that the board should be aware of all of the Implications of its action. ATA pubh'c relations officer Louis Burke pointed out that one consequence of the new set-up could be the spending of a great deal of time in ironing out policy details. Lethbridge teachers, he noted, receive pre- paration time as a matter of policy while Medicine Hat teachers do not. Many other similar details would have to be worked out under any joint bargaining agreement. There WPS also concern, he said, that there could be prob. lems with equation of contracts joint settlement might lower the salaries of some Lethbridge teachers or possibly cause the Medicine Hat boards to exceed then- 6 per cent limit on budget increases. Both board and committee members described the meet- in? as preliminary and quite amicable. The separate school board will vote on joining the asso- ciation at tonight's meeting. A meeting between the board and the teachers' committee been arranged following board meeting. A representative from the committee will also attend a similar meeting tonight in Medicine Hat.
