Mr. Copithorne replied "Not completely." Mr. Taylor asked If there will be public hearings into the ef- fects of the new highway on residents and the wilderness foothills area. Mr. Copithorne said no. Outside the house Mr. Tay- lor said "It is most iregular to let a contract before the right of way has been acquired.

The union, like the Alberta Teachers Association, uses standard bargaining proceed- ures while municipal councils are still bargaining separately and usually with little labor re- lations experience. Hector McDonald an Edmon- ton representative of CUPE, confirmed that the union is on a campaign lo register all the workers it can in Alberta. CUPE has certified workers in all major cities in the prov- ince, in one third of Alberta hospitals, at six of the 30 coun- tries including the County of Lethbridge but has not organized workers yet in muni- cipal districts or improvement districts, he said. CUPE is currently trying to organize employees of the county of Vulcan and the im- provement district of Canmore, he added. Mr. Erownlee urged muni- cipal councils to standardize business such as bus contracts to be in a better position to negotiate with the union. He termed CUPE and I he ATA "very well organized, ex- perienced and aggressive." On another topic, he said local government must be careful with the use of chemi- cal sprays, oil used on roads and other potential pollution about school mailers In writ- ing. There have been problems hi the past in getting teachers to testify against fellow teachers, he said, because the code of ethics of the ATA prevents one teacher from discussing competence of another. Mr. Brownleo said local gov- ernment also has a responsi- bility lo see lhat employee] such as leachers and play- ground instructors are compen- lent. It is not enough just to see that recreation and other ac- tivities are supervised, he said, officials must ensure that su- pervisors are qualified to do the job. because insurance not cover damage from the care- less use of polluting agents.
