Neiv labor group making inroads Written for CP....... By LESLIE K. TAMR TORONTO (CP) A small religiously-oriented labor movement has been making its presence felt in labor cir- cles. Leaders of Lhe major un- ions have been forced to no- Lice tlie Christian Labor Asso- ciation of Canada. The association is headed by 37-year-old Gerald Vandc- 7 a n d e, executive secretary and tireless promoter of Christian involvement in the turbulent labor scene. Friends and critics would agree that CLAC is no namby-pamby paper organization. Nor is it merely another church com- mittee. The Christian Labor Asso- ciation, which was organized in 1952, now has about members in Onlario. Mani- toba, Alberta, and British Col- umbia. Dcspilc ils numerical weakness when compared to the Cana- dian Labor Congress, the CLAC has influenced legisla- tion and, in the process, has incensed labor officialdcm. PAY TO CHARITY....... Last year, for instance, the Ontario government passed an amendment [o the Labor Art which pel-milled a worker to be exempt from joining a union or from paying union dues if he objected on con- scientious grounds to mem- bership in the p a r t i c u 1 a r union. The religious ohjeclor was lo ho prrmillc'l lo pay Ihc equivalent of union dues to a recognized charily. Dcspilc the overwhelming objection of organized labor, the legislation passed. The first test of the amend-" ment came in July of this year, and was a clear vic- tory for CLAC-mcrhlxT Klaas Slel, who opled out of the Ca- nadian L'nion of 1'iibhc ICm- ployces on [he grounds lhaf membcrshii in Ihc union to which he had paid dues for 10 years violated his religions convictions. BHtC'll PAWNS His iippoal was granled, and three other similar decisions we.rc handed down in quick Miccr.ssicu. Hut the Canadian Union of F'lihlic Kmployces iTr.i-'tC'.'i an appeal (o Ih" Bn.ird's deci- sion. Stan Liltle, president of Uio Canadian Union of Public Em- ployees, blasted CLAC in a public statement. He attacked members of the association as "pawns of a group with tenta- cles extending to the right- wing John Birch Society of America." He added that the Christian Labor Association of Canada is "a right-wing reactionary association which, if permit- ted, will destroy industrial un- ions as we know them in Can- ada." Vandezande dismisses Lit- tle's charge that CLAC is re- lated to Uie John Birch Soci- ety as "If any- thing." he snaps, "Mr Little's near-libellous accusation re- markably resembles the kind of totally unfounded statement the Birchers are so fond of making, and therefore does not deserve an answer." NOT ANTI-UNION As to the charge that he's anti-union, Vandezande be- comes impatient. "That's fool- he says. "We're not anti-union; we arc a labor union and want to co-operate with other unions. And fur- thermore the contracts we ne- gotiate will bear comparison with any equivalent contract negotiated by a secular union." Critics have charged that the CLAC is pro-management and is only a tool of employ- ers. "Anyone who says that has never bothered to exam- ine our public statcrr.cnls, lit- erature, or our Van- dezande slates. lie docs reject the Marxist concept of class struggle. But he is quick to of modern capitalism with ils racism and dcpersonalizalion is an expression of man's sel- fish propensily lo sin." "It's high time for a genu- ine he feels, "and for a Christian confrontation wilh liolh the corporate and Ihc union poivers-lhal-hc, for a radical reappraisal of the whole capilalistic system that alienates men from llx'ir work, their families, and from their Father." That's loiiL'li talk for a com- milled evangelical church- man, bill Vande7.anric insists that his evangelical failh is compatible with his militant Christian unionism. A mem- ber of the Christian Reformed Church, he's also on the gen- eral council of UK Evangeli- cal Fellowship of Canada.
