Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 LETHBRIDQE HERALD May 1974 Fireworks fail to materialize VANCOUVER After giving a conciliatory speech to the Canadian Labor Congress federal Labor Minister John Munro rejected the possibility of Parliament setting out minimum standards of national autonomy for inter- national unions. The fireworks that many ex- pected when Mr. ad- dressed delegates at the congress biennial convention failed to materialize as union leaders and members sat qui- etly through his address On a large number of delegates had proposed that Mr. Munro not be allowed to speak at the particu- larly in view of the election campaign. The congress has been traditionally a strong supporter of the NDP. But Mr Munro's in which he referred to the au- tonomy was greeted warmly by congress president Donald MacDonald despite jeers from some delegates. Mr. Munro also called upon the congress to strive harder to organize more workers and suggested that unions try voluntary arbitration rather than strike action in trying to settle contract disputes. Most of his attention was given to the autonomy an issue which will dominate the convention as a reform group seeks more independence for Canadian branches of international unions. WILL BE SPOKESMAN Mr. Munro said he believed that union members wanted a close examination of the links to United States parent and that greater independence could be achieved through adherence to congress standards.

VANCOUVER Louis Quebec Federation of Labor said Tuesday that Quebec union leaders have rallied more than Canadian Labor Congress delegates behind a resolution that would give the QFL more extensive powers. A resolution from the QFL calling for more authority over financing and labor councils for the Quebec federation is to come up today at the Congress' biennial convention The motion is one of the ma- jor issues at the convention. QFL leaders feel Quebec members are not getting adequate services because of language and cultural differences. Mr Laberge said at a news conference that the nearly 600 delegates from the Canadian Union of Public representatives of the Public Service Alliance and delegates from several other major unions have agreed to back the QFL position About 300 of the dele- gates are from Quebec. Quebec union leaders have been lobbying support for their position and feel they have the backing of reform candidates for the congress executive Mr. Laberge said the QFL has also gained support of Donald Mont- Metropolitan Toronto Labor Council who is emerging as a strong candidate for the key post of congress secretary-treasurer. Mr Laberge told reporters that a CLC committee would recommend to the convention that the incoming congress ex- ecutive meet with the QFL to resolve the issue and would call upon delegates to reject the Quebec federation motion exactly what they said back in he added. are going to ask delegates to defeat the promised the congress that the federal labor if the Liberal government is returned in the federal would act as a spokesman inside gov- ernment for the aims and aspirations of labor That reference was termed to our by Mr. MacDonald speaking to Mr. Munro said he would like to discuss standards of Canadian autonomy with union leaders and suggested that a committee might be established to talk over the issue. But he rejected the possibility that Parliament would legislate guides for international unions EXPLAINS ATTITUDE don't believe legislation would ever work It may be counter-productive to the movement toward Canadian autonomy that is already under way There was still strong opposition by the congress to interference in internal union he said. Mr. Munro said he wanted to make his position on autonomy clear because there had been distortion of his particularly by political opponents in the NDP In his he said he did not want to be associated with nationalists who have been raiding congress affiliates. I will resist any attempt to associate me with those people. I know who they are and you know who they are He said Canadian labor owed a great debt historically to American but that now divergent economic interests were working against international ties. Mr. Munro also suggested to delegates that they give more authority to the congress to decide on mergers between affiliates. is all very well for some member unions to criticize the but unless they are prepared to vest more power and resources their criticisms can scarcely be considered valid JOHN MUNRO CYCLONE SPREADER accurate spreading of lime or insecticide.
