Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, May 14, 1970 THE IETHBRIOGE HERALD Labor Congress Faces Big Session (CP) Resolu- tions prepared for next week's convention of the her Canadian Labor Congress call for a charter of labor rights, equal rights for women and withdrawal of U.S. forces from Vietnam. The 461 resolutions, released Wednesday, were submitted by locals of the 123 unions affili- ated to the CLC. They will go lo the biennial convention's expected del- egates May 18-22 for approval or rejection, following scrutiny this week by the CLC_ resolu- tions committee which is mcet- Top Fashion Bermuda Hose For Junior Miss fe'S Summertirrm Is shorts lime.

Included in the charter would The right to peaceful as- sembly and picketing; the right to strike during the term of a collective agreement now illegal under federal law; and the right to bargain to reduce the ad- verse effects of technological change. Several resolutions submitted iy railway unions ask for im- mediate federal implementation of the Freedman report, submit- ted in 1965 by Mr. Justice Sam- uel Freedman, which said ad- verse effects on employees of major technological changes should be subject to collective bargaining. SEEK EQUAL RIGHTS Five resolutions ask for a pol- icy of equal rights and equal op- portunities for women, including legislation to impel employers to grant maternity leave. One of these resolutions, from Local 226 of the United Trans- portation Workers, says the CLC has so far paid only "lip service" to the principle of equal rights for women. Another resolution, from the Canadian Union of Public Em- ployees which has a large num- ber of female members, blames the CLC for its failure to de- mand legalization of abortion in the CLC's 1968 submission to the royal commission on the status of women. Twelve the largest number on a single for U.S. troop with- drawal in Vietnam and request the Canadian government to cease all arms shipments to the United States. The resolutions vary from a submission from Lodge 111 of the International Association of Machinists which asks for im- mediate withdrawal of aU troops in Vietnam to a call for a de-escalation of U.S. military activities in Vietnam from the Quebec Federation of Labor. Other resolutions indicate strong interest in pushing the CLC into more social action, and request establishment oi union organizing teams to assisl the poor, native peoples and slum dwellers across Canada, Local 226 of the United Trans- portation Union says the CLC has so far been content "to issue glib and platitudinous statements concerning social action" and has failed to in- volve itself sufficiently in social and political action. Fired From Jobs EDMONTON (CB) Five Edmonton residents say they have been fired from their hos- pital jobs because they are im- migrants. The five, housekeeping em- ployees at Charles Cams ell Hospital, said they eeived letters from Dr. R. R. M. Croome, executive director of the hospital. They sid the letters stated the Canadian Public Service Act provides that Canadian citi- zens must receive preference in appointments to positions in the federal public service. As there appeared to be sufficient Cana- dian citizens to fill "existing and anlicipat ed vacancies." the letter said, their services would not be required after May 31. Two of the fired employees are from Poland: Stella Ma- siak who carne to Canada in 1965 and had six months re- maining before she could apply for Canadian citizenship; and Julia Usowicz who has been in Canada for three years. The others are Mike Maione and Vince Saporito, both from Italy, who have been employed at the hospital for about three years, and Florence Hanson, a British subject, employed for more than a year. CASUAL HELP Dr. Croome said Wednesday the immigrants knew when they were lured that it was cas- ual employment. "Rightly or wrongly, there might be a number of Cana- dian citizens who think the pol- icy, which is quite clear cut, a reasonable one." H. L. Beane, assistant region- al director of the public ser- vice commission, said the jobs the immigrants filled have re- cently been identified as requir- ing that they be advertised for competition, whereby "set, rig- id priorities apply."
