Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE LETHBRIDGB HERALD Thursday, September 17, Mediation mission Sets Wage VANCOUVER (CP) The controversial British Columbia Mediation Commission ordered it first binding settlement in private industry Wednesday, setting terms of a new contract between the Teamsters union and three Vancouver-area ce- ment companies. The commission, set up by the 'provincial government in 1968, had previously confined itself to ordering binding deci- sions in the public sector, such as between policemen and their municipal employers. In a landmark 15-page deci- sion, the three-member com- mission ordered a 75-cent hourly pay boost for SCO Teamsters, spread over two years, on a base rate of S3.71 an hour. The contract is retroactive to Jan. 1. The decision was expected to draw sharp criticism from the B.C. Federation of Labor, which has been sharply critical of the commission and has urged its affiliated unions to boycott it. The Teamsters union is not a federation member and has steered a course largely inde- pendent of the labor body in regard to the commission and its powers. Strike Notice CALGARY (CP) Strike notice was served Wednesday on the Alberta-National Drug Co. Ltd. by the Retail, Whole- sale and Department Store Union, bargaining agent for 39 warehouse employees. Last week, the employees voted 73 per cent in favor of strike to support demands for wage increases of between 18 and 24 per cent on a two- vear contract. HALE OPTICAL Gary Mcrrtiffc Dispensing Optician 307 6fh Sf. 5. 327-7152 CUPE Strike Settled TRAIL, B.C. (CP) A ten- tative settlement was reached Wednesday in the wage dispute between the Canadian Union of Public Employees and West Kootenay school boards and Selkirk College, which has kept children out of school. CUPE negotiator Aubrey Burton said the 250 union mem- bers were to vote on the un- specified recommendation Wendesday night. Mr. Burton said if the'men accept the terms, worked out in two days of talks under provincial mediator Charles Stewart of Vancouver, the schools could reopen imme- diately. Fifty-seven CUPE members in Trail school district went on strike Aug. 24 in an effort to wage parity with workers at Conu'nco Ltd. The boards :hen locked out workers at Grand Forks, Castlegar, Nel- son and Selkirk College near Castlegar. Schools in Castlegar reopen- ed Sept. 8, only to be shut down by the board for health Inflation Faltering: OTTAWA (CP) The al- most-unbroken advance of retail prices in Canada stalled last month while economic activity generally slowed from the infla- tionary pace ot the last two years. The consumer price index of August, published Wednesday 1 by the Dominion Bureau of Sta- tistics, was unchanged from the 130.3 points in July. Tire housing-price component failed to advance last month for the first time since early 1SG5 and clothing prices registered the biggest summer decline hi years. Summer food prices went up by a smaller margin than usual. TOP Mitch- ell, Canadian folk singer who was a leading performer at the recent Isle of Wight pop festival, was voted top fe- male singer in a poll pub- lished Wednesday by Brit- ain's most popular musical weekly, Melody Maker. Miss Mitchell, 26, is from SarH- toon. CALIFORNIA HAS MOKE The abalone, a mollusc of the snail family, is more common California than in Canada where it is found on the west coast of Vancouver Island. As a more reliable guide to longer-term trends than montli- to-month fluctuations, lira Au- gust price index was only 2.8 per cent ahead of the reading in August, 1969. That was the smallest year- to-year increase since the 12 months to February, 1967, and followed annual jumps of be- tween four and five per cent in the last two years. While the statistics indicate that price inflation is faltering, others show that the same thing is happening to production, trade and employment. Figures issued1 this week show industrial production declined in July for the second month run- ning. Exports in August fell back from the pace in the ear- lier months of this year when seasonal variations are dis- counted. Unemployment is rid- ing high. Tbe chief problem facing fed' oral economic tacticians is how t o reinvigorate production, trade and employment without generating a revival of inflation. The August consumer price index, calculated from a base of 100 points for 1961 prices, indi- cates roughly that a wide range of goods and. services valued at in 1961 advanced to a price of in August, 1969, and held at throughout July and August this year. Arson In B.C. Schools Spurs Hike In Fire Insurance Premium Rates VANCOUVER (CP) The Sun says British Columbia school districts have been warned that some of them may not be able to get insurance unless they improve security systems against vandalism and rson. The newspaper says a lead- ing insurance brokerage firm sent a confidential report to districts giving this warning. It says arson and vandalism have resulted in substantially increased premium rates. The report says that from 1956 to 1969, losses in 44 major School Board Wants Lotteiy CALGARY (CP) The pub- lic school board has decided to ask Attorney-General Edgar Gerhart to determine the feas- ibility and legislative changes needed to allow the board to hold a lottery. Trustees voted 3 to 2 Tues- day to seek government advice after they tabled Scot Saville's motion to have the board ap- for provincial permission ;o hold a lottery that would raise funds to lower local ed- ication costs. school, fires totalled mil- lion about million more than all school districts paid in fire insurance premiums. Underwriters took their big- gest jolt in 1969. Losses totalled million in nine fires and seven of them were termed definite, probable or possible arsons. Insurance premiums last year amounted to mil- lion, the report said. Three school districts ac- counted for the bulk of record breaking fire loss total in the province. Coquitlam had million in fire losses, including damage to a secondary school by possi- ble arson. In Ocean Falls, the entire three building, elementary- secondary facility worth million, was destroyed. Dam- age to the Delta Secondary School in Ladner amounted to The Ladner and Ocean Falls blazes were listed as definite or probable arson cases. The report said Vancouver, North Vancouver, Surrey. Delta, Nanaimo, Chilliwack, Burns Lake and Prince George school districts have shored up their defensive alarm systems. As examples of increased premiums, the Maple Ridge- Pitt Meadows district will pay in the next three years an increase of 25 per cent and the Mission school district 242 a year up 40 per cent. However said W. R. Sharp, secretary treasurer of the Maple Eidge Pitt Meadows district: "I think the new rates are reasonable in view of the heavy losses the underwriters sustained in recent years in B.C." Short Takeoff Aircraft System Urged By Council By KEN KELLY Canadian Press Science Writer YELLOWKNIFE, N .W .T. (CP: The Science Council of lanada was putting finishing touches today on a proposal that Danada devote a major effort to ,he design and construction of a iransport system based on short take off-and-landing air- craft and related navigation and air traffic control. Dr. 0. M. Solandt, council chairman, said the council, meeting here as. part of an arc- tic tour, is just about decided on making such a recommendation a the federal government. He envisages "a major pro- ;ram of research and develop- ment leading tc production and use of a complete short take- off-and-landing aircraft and sys- em." The proposal has been under study by the council's transpor- ation committee which has >laced a recommendation bs- bre the council that it be given jacking in a report to the fed- eral government. Dr. Solandt said a complete STOL (short takeoff and land- Ing) system including naviga- tional and air traffic control features "would be a solution to the problem of transportation" between cities such as Montreal and Toronto in lu'gh-densily rib- bons of population. "It also would produce on air- craft particularly suitable for many of the problems of the north and it seems to be a field specially suitable for Canadian expenditure."

SOUTH LETHBRIDGE PHONE 328-5526 Plan Hike Fees For Students From Afar EDMONTON (CP) Educa- tion minister Kobert Clark said Wednesday the government plans next year to limit the number of qut-of-province stii denls attending Alberta's uni- versities and colleges. The Social Credit govern. ment is planning the move, he said, to trim spiralling univer- sity and college costs.

He has sent letters to both the Alberta Universities Com- mission and Alberta Colleges Commission twin regulatory xxiies for the institutions asking them to make specific recommendations regard! n g students. and non-C.ina- money for themselves and 15 regional staff mem- bers. The ones opposing the raises were delegates repre- senting the union's west- ern Canada members at the annual regional convention here. "You spoil people by giving them good money." said Syd Thompson, president of the Vancouver local. He said union leaders should be dedicated and "willing to work for nothing." During the heated debate, there were charges that the IAW is a "chintzy outfit" to oppose more money for its leaders, who negotiate with employers for increases for the members. One member pointed out that regional president Jack Moore at ?232.40 weekly gets "a heck of a lot more than us in the rank-and-file.
