Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 11, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 U1HBWOGE HER AID Wediwidoy, Novembar II, 1970 Residents face threat of cold winter living conditions Coal production in Britain slowed down by various strikes National Coal Board that runs the mines, charged Monday that the wildcat coal strikers were being let! by Communists. In a radio interview be said: "The .full-time officials of the National Union of Mineworkers wiio are avowed Communists have stirred up their coalfields to come out on strike, DEMANDS HIGH Relatively high wage demands in the garbage and coal strikes have shot holes in Hie Tories' bold-down on inflationary pay raises, the National Union of Miners doesn't have much control over its local and regional settled with the nationalized coal board for a 12-percent increase after originally demanding 33 per cent. Unofficial strikes have been spreading around the country until about around half the working force-are out for the full 33 per cent. An estimated one million tons of production a day are being lost. Coal stocks on hand are about 26.5 million tons, not enough to keep the country fuelled up even until cold sets in. If stocks run low, gas production and electricity will be cut, as well as domestic coal burning. One of the first to be hit will be the nationalized steel industry, which lias on hand about a two-week supply of coking coal for blast furnaces. If it cranking out such items as steel plate, the automobile industry and some others will conic to a lialt. This kicks (he main props out of the vital export London stock market reacted to this thought Monday as the Financial Times Index of se-. curitics took n dive. Conservative government officials now are talking of stave off a fuel crisis by importing coal, which has been banned here for a dozen years to preserve the dwindling colliery industry. This could not take hold for many months. A sporadic series of strikes by workers in the public sector, notably garbage collectors, over the last six weeks has turned parts ftf London and other big cities into rat-infested rubbish heaps. Tte "dustmen" won hefty wage settlements which bring 1970 raises in the public service to around 20 per cent, enormously higher than the government wants. Still to be faced are demands nationalized electricity supply workers of 25 per cent; nationalized railwaymen looking for about the same; postmen who want 20 per cent and are thinking of a Christmas flint-down i! they don't get it; and firemen and policemen seeking, respectively, 15 and 35 per cent. BETHINK POLICY The Conservatives, before getting into power in June, said they would not put in a compulsory wage freeze. But political observers are saying that this week the cabinet will be reconsidering the idea. The growing sense of urgency coincided with a survey being prepared by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development and reported to be calling on governments to by higher ment if necessary. The report, to be debated at an OECD meeting in Paris next week, is reported to predict that prices will rise faster in Britain than in other induslrialmxl countries. Another factor adding to the concern was the fall Monday of the pound sterling to against its U.S. dollar parity of Fear of inflation was cited as the reason for the dip of the pound which was holding at when the markets closed Friday.
