Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta May 1974 THE LETHiRIDQE HERALD 9 PRESIDENT GISCARD France embarks on new path By CY FOX The CANADIAN PRESS After a much-publicized display .of presidential France has embarked on what is officially billed as a new political with a vigorous 48 year old aristocrat at the helm. The unveiling of the first cabinet to serve under Valery Giscard d'Estaing amply fulfilled the new president's promise that his inaugural list of minis- ters would contain changes and surprises. At the same it con- firmed that Giscard d'Estaing will place major emphasis on restoring close Franco-German relations which were heavily strained in the final months of the era represented by the late French Georges Pompidou and the now- resigned chancellor Willy Brandt A number of reports indicate the personal warmth which prevails between the two former fi- nance ministers whom recent developments have brought to the pinnacle of and West German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt Now Giscard and Schmidt are to meet in Paris in their first major excursion into foreign af- fairs since they assumed their leadership roles. Schmidt has preceded the meeting with expressions of West German indulgence to- ward European Common Market partners which feel forced to employ temporary protective economic even though these might damage the much stronger Bonn republic This line contrasts sharply with earlier statements by Schmidt that West Germany was no longer willing to continue making major economic sacrifices in the interests of its market partners Bonn's change of tone serves as a basis for optimism about the Paris meeting which ideally would be a first step towards restoring the morale and momentum of the European Community after months of disarray and near-paralysis. Perhaps an indication of the importance of Franco- German friendship is the appointment of the politically-unknown Jean Sauvagnargues as Giscard's foreign minister. Sauvagnargues is a former ambassador to Bonn. Giscard also seems much better disposed towards the United States than either Pompidou or the late president Charles de Gaulle. In French commentators see the new Giscard government as decidedly in compared with the last cabonet under whose foreign Michel adopted a position consistently critical of Washington. But Giscard is reported to be hostile toward any fundamental renegotiation of Britain's Common Market entry terms His greatest challenges may be on the home front. The slimness of his electoral victory suggests that his policies will be scrutinized by a still powerful opposition left. He may also have to contend with antagonism in the Gaullist which controls only four of the 16 portfolios in the new cabinet. Boss must prove union activity OTTAWA Employers must prove that union activity is not a factor in dismissals of employees who seek recourse under an unfair labor practice section of the Canada Labor the Canada Labor Relations Board has established in several recent decisions. The board's policy is em- ployed for the first time in a recent case involving three complaints from employees of the Montreal Flying Club. Some subsequent decisions have reconfirmed the board's position. .Under the once an employee has with some preliminary that he was fired because he belonged to a the onus of proof is on the employer who must show that union membership was not a reason for the action The Canada Labor which applies to about employees under federal was amended last year and a permanent board set up which replaced the part-time agency which operated before the changes. The permanent board is in the process of setting new precedents under provisions of the amended act. The code says no employer can refuse to employ or dis- criminate against any employee simply because the person is a member of a union.
