Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 8, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE inHBRIDGE HERAID Wednesday, November 8, BABY Two-monlh-old Chrislina Topf was reunited with her molher Mrs. Ermila Tc-pf, after being found abandoned on a doorsiep in Norlh Vancouver. The child was laken from Ihe YWCA nursery by a woman who asked for her by name. (CP dispute clflc Press, whose union is affil-ialetl with that of tho truck divers, refused lo operate the presses on the grounds that he laper was destined for an un-lair employer. The truck drivers are members of the Vancouver Printing Specialities and Paper Products Umon. They removed their picket line Tuesday after ratifying a contract agreement that followed Ihe Pacific Press settlement announcement by minutes. Normally the drivers wait until the six unions employed hy Pacific Press sign contracts, which then become effective between them and S and P Distributors, an independent company. This time, however, they took the first action, issuing a 72-hour strike notice and then going on strike last Friday. It affected the publishing runs of the two newspapers on Satur-day. When Ihe pressmen, one of [ive of its unions which had :aken strike votes, refused lo operate the presses, the company lut back with a 72-hour ockout notice.

The Pacific Press Settlement, made at 4 p.m. after 54 hours of negotiations, replaces contacts which expired Oct, 31. It ncludes an hourly increase of 51.24 for key personnel over two years. The issue of technological change, a major part of the dispute, was settled with a formula giving Pacific Press the right to introduce new technology and processes that could reduce the size of the work force. The company would be allowed to reduce staff by attrition, but once the size of the work force is reduced >y five per cent, the company would pay the union affected a >asic pay scale for each man displaced. No employee now on he work force would lose his oh because of change In technology. The settlement is subject ratification by Hie mem burs of six unions employed b Pacific Press.
