Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 18, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta _____Wetlr.csetoy, Oclober 18, THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Bargaining t-igtUs i'or civil scwaiils NDP, Tories would extend rights to more By VIC I1 ARSONS OTTAWA (CP) The Pro- gressive Conservatives and New Democratic Party favor extension of collective bargain- ing rights lo more of Canada's federal public servants, but the Liberals feel present exclusions are "not excessive." These views are expressed in replies from Hire 3 of the four major political parties to a re- quest from a government em- ployees' union for party policies n bargaining rights for public Communists will be 'real winners' PORT ALBERNI, B.C. CCP) William Kashtan, leader of the Communist Party of Can- ada, says his parly "can't lose" in the Oct. 30 federal election, regardless of its outcome. He said in an address to 28 people at a public meeting in this Vancouver Island centre that even if none of the Com- munist parly's 31 candidates are elected, the party in power will have to deal with issues raised by the Communists. Mr. Kashtan said the other political parties are "sweeping under the rug" such fundamen- tal problems as-fowering unem- ployment without raising the cost of living, Canadian Inde- pendence and genuine redistri- bution of wealth. Instead, the Communist lead- er said, the parties are debat- ing such unimportant matters BS possible fraud in the Un- employment Insurance Com- mission. "There ma" .well be fraud in the unemployment insurance but the biggest fraud Is that working people are Sw- ing exploited by he said. bervanls. Managerial public servants and those engaged in a con- iclential capacity now cannot oin bargaining units. Alxmt of tlio federal employees spread across Can- nda belong to government em- iloyce unions. Of the under tlie Pub- ,.e Service Employment Act, alxmt are located in the Ottawa-Hull area. Other cities with large numbers of federal public servants in their popu lalion are Montreal wilh Toronto wilh Vancouver and Halifax wilh each awl Winnipeg with Excluded are employees o Crown corporations anresent law is adequate. Mr. Trudeau has said during lis campaign that he will not inker with public service col- ective bargaining legislation ,hat has proved to be "98-per cent successful." There have been five strikes m the public service since 1967 when the Staff Relations Act which governs settlement o working agreements between government and employees was passed. Since then 220 col lective agreements have been CUT NUMDEH The NDP reply to the PIPS letter, by David Orlikow, MP or Winnipeg North, said the umber of public servants mable to bargain collectively hould be cut to "an absolute minimum." The NDP has adopted a con- ditional position on collective >argaining recognizing that in some cases public interest may over-ricle the right to strike. The NDP view is also that virtually all matters which ef- fect employment of public ser- vants should be negotiable. Sneaking of job security, Mr. Orlikow said: "There is no jus- tification for giving the govern- ment or one of its departments or agenda1; the unilateral right to decide these matters." The Conservatives would also broaden the issues subject to negotiation in the public serv ice. are overrun with criminologists and sociologists. Mr. Davis, who Is seeking election in Capilano said the boards "tend to look at the prisoner and him only and of- ten ignore the conditions sur- rounding the crime." He said a judge often hands out a harsher sentence than he otherwise might because he knows the sentence may be commuted in the future through the parole boards. OTTAWA The town o! ount Uoyal is like a dream odd set inside the confines of he huge metropolis that is ionlreal. The people who live there nd commute to jobs in down- own Montreal move easily and onlidently to their appointed asks. In the evening they re- urn lo their handsome homes i the Montreal suburb. They are for the most part vell-to-do and set apart irom he frenzy of other districts hat make up the metropolis. They are largely aloof to the is- sues that have emerged in this general election campaign. Their member of Parliament Pierre Elliot Trudeau. While tiiere have been pieces written many pundits about the lost charisma of the Liberal leader there is no doubt that in Mounl Hoyal he is highly regarded and almost certain to be re- elected. But in that quiet peacefu area that makes up his con stituency there Is one wel known Liberal who has ar nounced publicly that he in tends to vote for tha Ne Democratic Party. That man is Eric Kierans former member of Trudeau cabinet, and a former cabine minister in the provincial Lib eral government of Quebec Mr. Kierans sat for the Quebe constituency of Duvernay in th last Parliament, he sat as Liberal MP. Ever since he resigned from Trudeau's cabinet he has having very serious second thoughts about the economic policies of the Liberal govern- ment. He is a former president of the Montreal Stock Ex- lange. He resigned last year as fed- al communications minister protest over Trudeau's eco- omic policies. He contends lat Canada's economy now op- rales mainly to serve the in- erests of the United Stales. Kierans, an economist and ormor businessman, is a vis- iting professor in McGill Uni- versity's faculty of manage- ment. In tlic spring of this year he was hired by the New Democratic Government of Manitoba to act as a consultant on resources policy. Earlier this month David Lewis, the hard driving na- tional leader of the NDP party was asked if there was any chance of Kierans joining the NDP party in the near future. Lewis smiled and said that notliing had been decided yet. "He's thinking, and what ho will do is entirely up to Lewis added.
