Mr. Dunne, a former oil com- pany engineering emptojte said Dev-Cor wanls to help groups thai "don't have Ihe know-how or are in isolalec Jocalions that have disad- vanlages they have to compete with." "We would attempt to pro- vide a sort of link between those kind of groups and the resources they need. That could take a lol of forms, from feasibility studies to preparing submis- sions to the place where the re- sources are located. It might be financial or other types." Dev-Cor is trying to get a group of people with widely di- vergent backgrounds "who have enough time, concern and inler- esl so we can call on Ihe right kind of help when we get in- volved in a project" Mr. Dunne said lhat because mosl of the people Involved in setting up Dev-Cor have in one way or another been associated n the past with naliye commu- nities "we perhaps have more EXPERIENCED DRILLING PERSONNEL REQUIRED Join the largest drilling company in Canada. 32 rigs in Yukon and across Canada.

Electrohome strike first in 65 years KITCHENER, Ont. (CP) The hourly-paid employ- of Electrohome Ltd. tied up its eight plants Friday in the first strike in the company's 65- year history in Kitchener and Waterloo. Members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers voted 923 to 547 Thurs- day night to walk out in a con- tract dispute with the manufac- turer of electrical appliances. In a contract to- replace one that expired Sept. 30, the union is seeking wage increases of 35 cenls an hour in each year of a two-year agreement. The company offa-ed a pcr-cent increase spread over two years. This would mean raises ranging between 44 and 54 cents an hour in the second year, bringing wages Into a range between and Both parties met with a pro- vincial government conciliation officer In early October but no progress was made.

Solurdny, November 4, ItTI TMI UTHMIDGI HtMLD _ Postal pay board seeks extension OTTAWA (CP A con- ciliation board set up la deal wlUi the contract dispute be- tween postal workers and the government has asked for a one-week extension. Under federal law, after mat- ters to be discussed by the board were set out, the con- ciliation board had 14 days to meet before reporting to the chairman of the public service staff relations board. But the law allows extensions when the conciliation board asks fur more lime to deal with mailers remaining in dispute. After completion of con- ciliation board efforts and receipts o! the boards report lo the staff relations board, the I postal workers would have a week to wait before they can legally strike. If a conciliation board fails to bring parties into agreement, a mediator could be appointed to aid negotiations. Appointment of a mediator does not take away the strike right while talks are continuing under his guidance. TALKS FAILED Contract lalks began early In Ihe year, but broke down in Au- gust, and the Council of Postal Unions, which represents the employees, asked for the ap- pointment of the three-man conciliation board. The conciliation bnard chair- man is Owen Shime of the On- tario Labor Relations Board. Union nominee is William Walsh of Hamilton, a labor con- sultant, and the government's representative Is Bruce Stew- art, a Toronto lawyer. Wages are among the chiel issues still in dispute, with the union originally asking for a 66- cents-an-hour straight increase. The government's last public proposal was a 13-per-cent wage Increase spread over A three-year contract. Average wage for the em- ployees in the bargaining unit is an hour.
