Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Saturday, October County teachers reach contract After four meetings in as many weeks, the County of Lethbridge and 170 teachers from 16 county schools have signed their 1975 contract. The new agreement, signed Friday night following contract talks both 'sides described as gives teachers a 15 per cent pay raise and a consultation clause establishing a joint policy committee. A negotiator for the Alderman to sue Herald, he maintains Aid. Steve Kotch served notice to The Lethbridge .Herald Friday that he intends to bring legal action against the newspaper under the Defamation Act. According to the notice, the action is being undertaken for "defamatory matter" which appeared in The Herald Oct. 7 in which aldermanic can- didate Roger Rickwood questioned Mr. Kotch's cam- paign tactics. Aid. Kotch has declined further comment. Fined A Lethbridge man who pleaded guilty in provincial court Thursday to commenc- ing construction on an addi- tion to his home without a city building permit was fined Paul Hauser, 1411 28th St. S., was charged for construc- tion that took place between Sept. 5 and 30. Just arrived shipment of DIET SCALES These Scales weigh ounces and grams PRICED AT 645 Call HouMwares 327-5767 teachers said this morning that the joint policy com- mittee will giye teachers "automatic input" into school policy and a say in their work- ing conditions. Final decisions on school management, however, remain with the county. Spokesmen for the county and teachers said today that the new contract, effective Jan. 1, was negotiated quick- ly because contract talks were held between the employer and employees, rather than between each side's regional parent association. Although wages were the last thing to be discussed, neither side was very far apart in its original bargain' ing position, spokesmen said. The 1975 contract also increases from to the pay ceiling during a year's leave of absence, doubles the current professional development fund which un- derwrites short courses for teachers, gives substitute teachers a increase over the current stipend and increases the county's payment toward group life and disability in- surance. The contract also requires the county to agree with teachers on salaries to be paid staff hired for new positions, like the recently created post or travelling resource teacher. Ichio Ibuki, vice principal of Davidson School in Coaldale, has been hired to fill the position, once his salary is approved by the local teachers' association. One of the first tasks the county will request of the joint policy committee will be revi- sion of the policy handbook. The county's school com- mittee voted Friday to reju- venate its policy handbook committee, which has not met since Dec. 1972.
