Wednesday, September 19, 1973-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-3 Higher rail wages stressed New Chinese ambassador Chang Wen-Chin, China's new ambassador to Canada, is shown with his wife on arrival in Ottawa. It is expected that Mr. Chang will accompany Prime Minister Trudeau on his visit to Peking next month. By VIC PARSONS OTTAWA (CP) Arguments for higher wage increases will be put forth with renewed vigor by rail un- ion negotiators during arbitra- tion hearings that begin here today. Two factors will add new impetus to the union battle for higher wage raises than those set out as minimums in Parliament's law that forced striking rail workers back to their jobs. One is recent government figures which showed a cost- of-living rise of 8.3 per cent from August last year and the other is the result of a strike vote taken by shopcraft tradesmen and recently counted. The tradesmen gave 90 per- cent backing for a walkout in the vote taken largely after Parliament prohibited three groups' of rail workers from striking. Arbitration hearings begin with representatives of non-operating by their national strike precipitated Parliament's ac- presenting arguments before Mr. Justice Emmett Hall. Mr. Justice Hall, a retired Supreme Court of Canada judge appointed by Labor Minister John Munro to ar- bitrate the three disputes, will then hear the companies' case on the non-ops before turning to the tradesmen and trainmen. Hearings involving the shop- craft workers are not ex- pected to begin until after Thanksgiving.

Dan McKenzie nipeg South Centre) asked if it is the policy of Defence Minister James Richardson to allow service personnel bandsmen to entertain in civies or uniform at political conventions. He claimed that military bandsmen in civilian clothes had provided band music for Senator Gil Molgat's election campaign at the Liberal con- vention to win the presidency of the national Liberal party. Mr Richardson said the member would have to give him more details before he could answer the question. Army red tape while it may have been cut to provide band music at the convention has blocked the participation of the Queen's Camerons Reserve pipe band of Win- nipeg in the giant Rose Bowl Parade in Pasadena, Califor- nia next January, said the Winnipeg MP. Outside the House he told newsmen that the popular Winnipeg pipe band had been invited to participate in the big parade in California along with the Winnipeg Police band and other pipe bands in Win- nipeg However according to information received by Mr. McKenzie "a senior military ifficial in Calgary has issued a directive that the Queen's Cameron Reserve Band vaii lot be allowed to attend the parade Mr McKenzie said par- ;icipation of the Canadian Forces pipe band in ,he parade would be good relations for this :ountry's armed forces. He >aid. "it would be quite an lonor for a group of Winnipeg jipers to lead the world-recog- lized parade." "Answer, answer." shouted )pposition members at Defence Minister Richardson, ie did not reply. Brig.-Gen. M. G. Cloutier, special assistant to Mr. Rich- ardson was contacted by Mr McKenzie some time ago. He asked if there are any regu- lations restricting the Cana- dian Army bands from par- ticipating in any other musical organizations. Outside the ouse the mem- ber said he was getting the "run around" on the question about the Winnipeg pipe band. The Canadian Armed, Forces regulations specifical- ly forbids military bands from playing at any engagement organized for or on behalf of a political party. All engagements must be booked through the headquar- ters of the command to which the band is assigned. The regulations also provide that "Engagements not in keeping with the dignity and prestige of the service or which have no public relations or recruiting value shall not be accepted."

Draft report OTTAWA (CP) A federal additional billion to By VICTOR MACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA A suggestion that the "saturation adver- tising" tactics of Safeway grocery stores in western Canada should be investigated by the federal government's combines division was made in the Commons Tuesday by Grace Maclnnes (NDP Vancouver Addressing her question to Consumer and Corporate Af- fiars Minister Herb Gray she said "In view of the action taken by the Supreme Court of Alberta in ordering Canada Safeway to reduce its domina- tion of the retail grocery markets in Calgary and Ed- monton, is the minister's department investigating the operations of Canada Safeway in other provinces where it is established with a view to determining the need to protect the Mr. Gray said that under the provisions of the act it is not possible for the minister to indicate what i n vestigations are in progress He added that he was confi- dent tho director and his staff wore actively carrying out their responsibilities.

In this Saturday's Weekend Magazine he describes what it was like being with who will soon be the qreatest home run hitter of all time. In your Lethbridge Herald Weekend Magazine Although the shopcraft tradesmen cannot strike un- der the special law passed Sept. 1. union leaders see the vote results as a measure of dissatisfaction with the government's action. The special legislation ini- tially set up two conciliation chairmens' reports as basis for an agreement. And even though the non-op- erating aver- age hourly wage now is had their minimum wage in- crease raised from the amount originally set out in the bill, no such increased minimum was provided to the shopcratts and trainmen. Average hourly wages for shopcraft workers now is and for trainmen Con- tracts for all three groups end- ed Dec. 31, 1972. Under the law changed by a Conservative amendment the non-ops will get at least a retroactive 34 cents an hour in the first year of a two-year agreement, with 6.5 per cent beginning Jan. 1, 1974, and 1.5 per cent more on July 1, 1974. The shopcrafts and trainmen were given minimum increases of per cent in the first year with 6.E per cent on Jan. i, 1974 and l.E per cent on July 1, 1974. The rail unions argue tha the increases provided for in the law barely meet cost-of- living increases and do no allow for a share of increasec productivity in the economy or a catch-up with workers ir other transportation sectors.
