The Association's week long meeting will review matters relative to the ad- ministration of labor legisla- tion at the federal and provin- cial level. The sessions are closed with the exception of a panel Wednesday on labor relations and one on the quality of work- ing life, the problem and its implications for labor departments, on Thursday. Insurance frauds up EDMONTON (CP) The practice of insuring a non- existent motorcycle, then reporting it stolen and collecting theft coverage is causing growing alarm in the Alberta insurance industry. One police spokesman said he suspects that as many as 50 per cent of the theft claims on motorcycles in the province are bogus, although others say that figure seems high. One insurance represen- tative said the industry "is wide open now to any punk who wants to make a fast buck." cycles is not mandatory at the time the cycle is registered or insured, although police said such inspection would stop 90 per cent of the bogus claims. Noranda workers take union vote SMITHERS, B.C. (CP) Workers at Noranda's Bell Copper Mine near here were to begin voting today on whether to rejoin the United Steelworkers of America, the union they bolted from nearly one year ago. Steelworkers supervisor Monty Alton said Sunday he is confident the men will vote to return to his union after join- ing the Canadian Association of Industrial, Mechanical and Allied Workers last September. The union leader predicted that the Bell vote is the beginning of the end for small, independent unions in B.C. The results of the Labor Relations Board ordered poll will be known Tuesday when the 200 man local completes voting. The Board ordered the vote after the Steelworkers signed up a majority of the men who Mr. Alton said are dissatisfied with CAIMAW's ability to bargain for them. "In some cases the wages last negotiated by CAIMAW fall a an hour behind workers in neighboring he said. Workers at the Bell mine, about 50 miles east of here, voted 76 per cent in favor of joining CAIMAW last year. The first vote was ruled in- valid by the Labor Board following allegations from the Steelworkers that some men were not allowed to vote. The lethbridge Herald Weather SUNRISE TUESDAY SUNSET H L Pre.

(Times in Mountain Daylight VANCOUVER (CP) A suggestion by Finance Minister John Turner that hef- ty wage settlements contribute to inflation was re- jected by British Columbia labor leaders Friday. "The trade union movement takes the position that wages are not an important factor in the inflationary said George Johnston, president of the B.C. Federation of Labor. "Wage rates have nothing to do with interest rates or land speculation or the increasing prices for food products which are the major causes of inflation. "And certainly profits have not been in any way restrained by employers." He made the comments in an interview after Mr. Turner told the Vancouver Men's Canadian Club that he is concerned about large wage increases contributing to inflation. "It may well be that contracts providing for reasonable protection against cost-of-living increases are considerably less inflationary than those that build in very large wage boosts on the assumption of continuing rapid Mr. Turner said. Mr. Johnston said this appraoch "implies in itself that one of the major factors in inflation is wages. "We think that we have the right to continue to get an ever-improving standard of living and a right to maintain that through cost-of-living clauses that maintain our position and don't erode it." Mr. Johnston said cost-of- living clauses built into contracts were complemen- tary to wage increases rather than a substitute for them. "What Turner seems to be saying is that we should main- tain some sort of wage restraint and increases should only be granted to compensate for increases in the cost of living. I don't think the trade union movement is prepared to support that position." Mr. Johnston was supported by Syd Thompson, president Police have trouble with guns VANCOUVER (CP) Police are conducting an internal investigation into three accidental discharges of firearms by police officers in and near police headquarters this month. A police official said Satur- day the investigation is to determine whether dis- ciplinary action or further training is necessary. There were no injuries in the in- cidents. The latest incident was Thursday when a police shotgun went off inside an un- marked partol car behind the headquarters building- The blast tore a hole in the car's roof. Earlier in the month, another shotgun discharged accidentally into the ceiling of a small office on the first floor of the police station. A week later, a .22 calibre pistol confiscated during a crime discharged as it was be- ing placed in a wooden cabinet. The bullet went through the cabinet and lodg- ed in a wall seven feet away in the headquarters' first floor report centre. New contract stops strike VICTORIA
