Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 26, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, September 26, 1973-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-9 Stabbed in effigy Prime Minister Trudeau is stabbed in effigy on Parliament Hill, Tuesday, by Rita Clermont, St. Scholas- tique, Que. About 200 people demonstrated in Ottawa, to protest the amount of money paid by the Federal Government for lands expropriated to build the St. Scholastique airport. Labor chiefs press world unity idea By VIC PARSONS OTTAWA (CP) Stronger international labor ties are a new goal of many union leaders as large multinational companies grow into an increasingly powerful force in global economy. From Canadian, United States and European union leaders come calls for unity of workers to put pressure on the mammoth corporations that labor" has identified as the villains behind worldwide inflation and unemployment problems. One of the latest appeals is from Donald MacDonald, president of the 1.8-million- member Canadian Labor Congress who argues in the congress magazine, for "global strategies for collec- tive bargaining purposes." Mr. MacDonald is also president of the 50-million- member International Confederation of Free Trade Unions the first non-European to serve in that role. Ironically, perhaps, the call for international solidarity comes at a time when many Canadian workers are press- ing for greater national autonomy from the U.S.-based unions that represent about 60 per cent of Canada's organiz- fabor. RULES NEEDED In the latest issue of the CLC's magazine Canadian La- bor, Mr. MacDonald says there should be international rules to govern multinational policed by a United Nations agency. He also calls for an "inter- national union to deal with these corporations. "There is substantial evi- dence which indicates that especially in the last couple of years, multinational firms have been a contributing fac- tor in the worldwide inflation we have been Mr. MacDonald writes. "Price fixing by these com- panies, on a global basis, has been possible in the absence of effective national regulations." Mr. MacDonald says national unions, co-operating with ICFTU. should put pressure on governments to confrol the firms. FREE OF REGULATION Large corporations operating internationally are free of regulation because they can transfer capital from one country to another, depending on where the greatest tax advantages lie, he says. Similar arguments are ex- pressed by the American labor AFL- a report entitled The Dimming of America which notes that. there are United States-based mul- tinational operations abroad. The report says 51 of the world's 100 largest economic entities are corporations and that the combined output of the 20 strongest firms is greater than the gross national product of France and 15 other of the world's 20 biggest industrial countries. General Motors, the largest of the multinationsl in 1970, ranked 24th in terms of gross national product or sales. That put the auto manufac- turer ahead of countries such as Pakistan, which in 1970 had 130 million people. South Africa. Denmark, Venezuela, Chile and Israel. BULLY GOVERNMENTS Union leaders say the power of the multinational firms en- ables them to bully govern- ments, with threats that un- less tax and other concessions are given, companies will withdraw their investment. The big companies also take advantage of cheap labor in underdeveloped countries to the detriment of those in in- dustrial countries and are try- ing to destroy successful un- ions, labor spokesman from Canada, the United States and Europe have said. As an answer to the power of multinational firms, some union leaders propose that labor take steps toward a system of international bargaining. Dennis McDermott, Cana- dian director of the United Auto Workers, has suggested techniques that will 'pinch the nerve where it hurts." "It may be that one plant in Venezuela produces a certain part that is vital to the whole worldwide operation. We will have this information and we will use it. "The idea of waging war in one area and carrying on peaceful relations with the same company in another area cannot go Mr. McDermott has said.
