Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 16, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD May 1970 Maurice Western The okl fable about the boy who cried fur help so often that he came to be ignored may have application to the labor scene There was a time when the public could under stand the issues behind strikes and give sympathetic support to the at tempts to gain economic justice and tolerable working Some of the reasons for going on strike today are so abstruse that lie strikers themselves must be hard pressed to explain what they are In some of the disputes today the question of wages and working conditions scarcely figures at all while fringe benefits sick and other things become the And on these matters the points of contention can be so technical as to elude the majority of A suspicion intrudes itself with increasing frequency that there may be no real issues at Union leaders may simply feel un less they continue to press manage their people might get the idea they are Or it may be that unionists generally consider it to be a good idea to symbolize their distance from the bogeyman One of the least understood and Crying Wolf appreciated tactics or unionists is the sympathy While it may be thought to provide additional strength to the demands of the ini tially striking it tends to con fuse the public on which union has a grievance and what it Of it may not matter to unionists whether the public under stands and What may matter to them is the reaction of the management negotiators whose job it is to understand the But in the long disregard for the sentiments of the general public may redound unfavorably for Even in the short run it could have the effect of prolonging strikes be cause of the encouragement pro vided to management negotiators to resist the pressure of the Although there is certainly no sign of the labor movement falter there is no guarantee that it might not run into trouble in the Who can foresee what the effect of the tremendous labor sup ply being created by the population explosion and by automation may be What if there is a reaction to unionism strong enough to change laws and bypass current employ ment

success will be set partly by the 1 style of the Royal Family but more importantly by the way they are received in It would be silly to pretend that the future of the absentee monarch will depend on the rap port established during a few days between the Queen and a few of her subjects in a small part of her Canadian But it would be fanciful not to look at the visit in terms of the future of the monarchical sys tem as it now For their the Royal Fam ily will be doing their informal and relaxed best to make the tour a If their approach is similar to the one set in New Zealand and it will be

Can ada will be in the same perhaps with some distinct Can adian While this matey walkabout style is applauded for the colonials the British arent so sure about So the debate has been joined should the monarch come down to the pavement at home or stay on the Throne Buckingham Palace agrees that the spirit will be carried to Manitoba when the royal air craft touches down at Churchill on July From
