Worker discontent exaggerated says top union leader WINNIPEG (CP) A Mon- treal management consultant says the much-maligned work ethic is not dying, but simply is waiting to be renewed. John A. Pare, president of 0 D. Strategies Ltd. and part- time lecturer at McGill University, urged corporate executives Monday to pump more job satisfaction into their businesses to meet rising employee expectations. But a trade union leader said the idea of worker discon- tent and alienation has been exaggerated and "manufac- tured" by university people. Higher wages, said William Ladyman of Toronto, vice- president of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, is the best remedy for the estimated 18 or 19 per cent of the work force rebell- ing against dull, dirty, monotonous jobs Both discussed the changing work ethic on a panel during the second day of the four-day annual meeting of the Cana- dian Chamber of Commerce. Mr. Ladyman cmicized academics who had seized on job enrichment programs as a Harvesting interrupted by weather CALGARY (CP) Alberta farmers made good harvesting progress last week before rain again interrupted their operations, the Alberta Wheat Pool said today. The pool, in its weekly crop report, said about 18 million bushels of wheat, 14 million of oats and 29 million bushels of barley were threshed. Across the province about 54 per cent of the wheat 70 million bushels and 56 per cent of the barley about 115 million bushels, have been harvested. Harvesting progress for other grains stands at 4fi per cent for oats. 40 per cent for flax, 95 per cent for rye and 69 per cent for rapeseed. panacea for productivity problems, trying to sell such schemes "like headache remedies." Various surveys, he said, show that worker dis- content decreases as income rises and when earnings top annually "dissatisfac- tion drops significantly." Mark MacGuigan, member of Parliament for Windsor- Walkerville and parliamen- tary secretary to Manpower Minister Robert Andras, said recent studies reveal that workers object to "being lock- ed into stagnant, repetitive jobs that mock their skills and reduce them to automatons A rising level of education, he added, has engendered a demand for individuals to have a greater voice in decisions which may affect them. It was Mr. Pare who said that job alienation already has reached serious proportions. Absenteeism, quittings, dis- charges and refusals of over- time and recall were not the whole story, he said. One manager had told him about employees who turn up for work but put as little as possi- ble into it, those on what he called "onthe-job retirement." Mr. Pare said jobs must be humanized, made challenging and interesting, with clear goals and opportunities for promotion. "In the new and emerging society the major challenge to executives everywhere is to discover what must be done about the demeaning, mind- numbing nature of most white collar work and the dull, repetitive drudgery of most factory jobs." Mr. Pare said there has been a .marked increase of some individuals on layoff refusing recall, preferring instead to draw unemploy- ment and welfare cheques. Mr. MacGuigan rejected claims that unemployment in- surance was providing a "free ride" for individuals and de- stroying the work ethic. Peo- ple wanted healthy employ- ment for satisfaction and self- worth and the challenge has been to find those types of jobs. Healing Substance...

Preparation Turner urges change in monetary system NAIROBI. Kenya (CP) Finance Minister John Turner of Canada urged the 126- country International Monetary Fund (IMF) today to push work on a revamped monetary system "to ensure that by this time next year we could report agreement in at least those areas where it now seems that progress can rapidly be made." The 20-country committee studying the new system has made some yards "but my mood nonetheless is one of only cautious optimism tinged with impatience over the degree of progress made to date." Turner said. His remarks were contained in a text of his address issued before delivery. They reflected what he has been saying in Ottawa, at the Commonwealth finance ministers conference in Dar es Salaam last week, and here. "I fear that if more progress is not made soon, frustration will emerge and momentum will be lost." SIDES WITH U.S. The speech did spell out a Canadian stand which is not popular in the developing world and which puts Canada and the United States on the same side. One objective of the re- vamped monetary the 20-country group working on it has set July 31 as a to provide machinery for reduc- ing reliance on U.S. dollars, gold and other stronger currencies such as marks with a new international credit un- Greenpeace issue discussed at UN y- v Kf UNITED NATIONS (CP) Canada told France Monday that the seizure of the Cana- dian protest vessel Greenpeace III by the French Navy last August is no small matter and it must be resolved. External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp and French Foreign Minister Michel Jobert spent half their 50- minute meeting exchanging their views on the Greenpeace incident. A Canadian spokesman briefing reporters on the gist of the talks here said Sharp made a clear "expansion" of the Canadian viewpoint on the seizure in the South Pacific in international waters. Jobert, speaking in English, did the same. The Canadian spokesman said "our impres- sion" was that the French for- eign minister responded with "a very constructive at- titude." The fact that the Canadian public is "exercised" by the incident was fully appreciated by Jobert, the spokesman said. CANADIANS RILED Jobert agreed to pursue the dispute further after Sharp made it clear that it was not a "small incident" but one that had riled Canadians. Sharp said an effort should be made between the countries to settle the dispute amicably. The Canadian spokesman also disclosed that a French reply to the Canadian protest note arrived in Ottawa Sunday and is being studied before the Canadian government answers it through diplomatic channels Freight subsidies praised By JOHN SOOSAR SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I. (CP) Transport Minister Jean Marchand s announce- ment of increased freight sub- sidies for the Atlantic provinces and changes in Canadian coastal shipping practises received favorable comment Monday. Lloyd Hill, executive direc- tor of the Annapolis Valley Federated Boards of Trade, said he was pleased with a 20- per-cent increase in subsidies lor westbound goods from the Atlantic provinces. Leonard McLaughlin, presi- dent of the Seafarers Inter- national Union (SIU) in Mon- treal, hailed the announce- ment that Canadian coastal shipping would be almost en- tirely in Canadian hands in five years. Mr. Marchand made the an- nouncements following a meeting he and Regional Ex- pa n si on Minister Don Jamieson had with Premier Alex Campbell of Prince Edward Island, Premier Gerald Regan of Nova Scotia, Premier Richard Hatfield of New Brunswick and New- foundland Development Minister William Doody. Mr. Marchand said the sub- sidy increases would apply on most manufactured goods, agricultural and fish products. new level would be 50 per cent and would come into effect before the end of the year. The government now is re- ceiving information from the Atlantic region on what prod- ucts would qualify for subsidy increases. A final list should bo ready within three weeks. The existing 30-per-eent subsidy would remain lor goods that do not quality for increases David McTaggart of Van- couver, captain of the Green- peace, said French sailors boarded his vessel off Mururoa Atoll in mid-August. He said the sailors pulled him into a dinghy, began beating him on the head and then struck him in the eye. McTaggart said the sailors then grabbed crew member Nigel Ingram ol Britain and beat him on the head. The sailors were reported by McTaggart to be carrying truncheons. The McTaggart version was supported by two New Zealand women who also were Greenpeace crew members. The French version was that McTaggart was hurt only after he resisted the boarding by the French in an area where the French have been testing atomic devices. France also said the inci- dent occurred in territorial waters but later conceded it took place in international waters. Slayer pleads guilty NELSON. BC (CP) Calvert Lee Stanger, 29, of Twin Falls, Idaho, will be sentenced today for the manslaughter shooting May 12 of James Kyle Lash. 56, also of Twin Falls. Stanger pleaded guilty Mon- day before Mr. Justice Douglas Andrews in British Columbia Supreme Court. The crown earlier had reduced the charge from murder. Court was told that Lash and Stanger's wife left Twin Falls May 10 and Stanger followed them to a resort near Kaslo. B.C. Stanger said he hit his wife across the head with a .44 calibre revolver, which discharged, killing Lash. Ballistics evidence was given that the gun was defec- tive. it. now called a special draw- ing right. Developing and many other, countries would like to link this unit with aid, giving it special use for that purpose. Opponents such as Canada tear that would distort the monetary system, and, as Turner'said today, not necessarily mean any more; aid for the poorer countries.; He called for further study. Turner joined the general', emphasis here on concern; about world inflation and saidi strong international co-; operation is needed. "All of us feel that part of' the problem is beyond do- mestic control. We do not yet know enough about the inter- national causes and trans- mission of inflation." The IMF must provide an- swers to some of the uncer- tainties. he said. Turner also urged the World Bank to study problems being created for the poorer countries by the heavy costs of paying interest on the funds they borrow for development. Some were having to turn increasingly to private sources of such funds. Turner recalled that the lengthy World Bank study con- ducted by the late Lester Pearson had suggested use of bank knowledge in helping countries make the best use of credit He said Canada for this rea- son continues to provide its aid at low rates of interest and lie called on continued support tor the International Develop- ment Association chief international source of low- interest aid loans. Whelan won't seek leadership OTTAWA (CP) Eugene Whelan said Monday he will not seek the Ontario Liberal leadership. He then took a few swipes at candidates contesting the job. The federal agriculture minister told a news conference he cannot enter the race "because of the com- mitments that I have made to farmers to get them a better deal in agriculture." Some aspects of the lead- ership race show immaturity on the part of unnamed can- didates "and won't help the party." Mr. Whelan said. "Some of the people involv- ed are becoming petty. The party has to show some leadership to the people of On- tario." While not supporting any candidate, he said he will back Whoever is chosen at the Oct. 28 convention. The four declared can- didates for the Ontario leadership are the present leader, Robert Nixon; Donald Deacon, MPP for York Centre; Eddie Sargent, MPP for Grey-Bruce; and Ted Culp, a Toronto teacher. Mr. Whelan did not specify what he finds distasteful about the campaign but said "all parties lose by charges and countercharges." "I hope they realize what they're doing and act more-.. maturely." Sharp seeks Kissinger's opinions on Canada UNITED NATIONS (CP) External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp continues his whirlwind tour of personal di- plomacy at the United Nations today, with Henry Kissinger topping the list. Sharp requested the meeting with the new United States secretary of state to discuss a wide range of topics in CanadianAmerican relations. Energy and Europe among them. Sharp planned to sound out Kissinger on how he regards Canada. "Canada is an area where Mr. Kissinger has not expressed any public or private a Canadian spokesman said. After the Kissinger talks at the U.S. embassy. Sharp sch- eduled a meeting with Hungarian Foreign Minister Janos Peter. Hungary served with Canada on the Vietnam peacekeeping force before Canada pulled out last summer.
