The attached Talbot Jackson and Associates invoice reflects
some costs incurred by reason of various inspections by
Talbot Jackson, presumably to protect the interests of the
owners of MV "Incan St. Laurent" during alterations made
on behalf of B.C.C.3. to facilitate using the vessel in
Alaska charter service.
As alterations made on behalf of B.C.C.3. were by a
reputable contractor and subjected to inspection by
Canadian steamship Inspectors and American Bureau Ships
approval, it is felt the costs of inspections performed
hy •mibot Jackson are the responsibility of the owners.
Items in question would be work performed by J.B, Bailes
($123.75) and Alan Curayn ($375.00).

37. Work Gloves, Rain Gear, Sweat Rags & Coveralls.
The Union demanded that the following wording be
added to Article 5, Section 1 of the present agreement:-
Employees in the Engineroom Department shall
be provided by the Company with two (2) pairs
of overalls per year, free of cost, these to
remain the property of the Company.
During negotiations the Company agreed to have an
outside contractor provide one (1) pair of clean coveralls
weekly, which proposal was satisfactory to the Union.
38. Termination Clause.
The Union demanded the agreement be effective November
1, 1969, and remain in effect until October 31, 1970, and
thereafter subject to ninety (90) days' notice in writing
from either party of its desire to revise, amend or terminate
same, which notice may be given any time after July 1, 1970.
The Union has demanded a one-year contract.  The
Company, when making its wage offer did so on the basis of
a two-year agreement, effective November 1, 1969, and
respectfully requests the Board give consideration to the
Company's proposal.
39. Memoranda to the Agreement.
The Union demanded the inclusion of the following
provisions in the new contract:-

Dear Mr. Mamadere:
With reference to your letter of September 15, 1975, in which
you express interest in working on this Company's vessels.
The only position we might be able to offer you ia that of
Porter. We have to hire through the various unions for all the
other jobs you mention. As we run a seasonal operation, the
Porter position would not be available until next May and you
will appreciate that, in any event, it is not the Company's
policy to hire sight unseen.
It will be necessary for you to have landed Immigrant status
before you can work in Canada.
Sorry if this latter appears to be somewhat discouraging but It
is a true assessment of the situation. If,however, it is your
intention to immigrate to Canada and you are successful, please
do aot hesitate to call in to this office and we will discuss
the matter further.
Meanwhile, thank you for your interest in Canadian Pacific.
Yours truly.

With reference to your letter of September 15, 1975, in which
you request a position as deck officer with this Company.
It will be appreciated that it is not our policy to hire a men
sight unseen but I will say that your listed qualifications would
qualify you for employment at such a time when we will be hiring
deck officers. At present there are no vacancies end we do not
anticipate that things will open up again until spring.
It should be added that we have an agreement with the Canadian
Merchait Service Guild through whom we ars obliged to hire all
deck and engineer officers and it will bs necessary for you to
join that organization before we can employ you. You should write
them at 230 West Broadway, Vancouver, B.C., or contact them on your
arrival in Vancouver.
We wish you every success in your efforts to immigrate to Canada
and if you do make it to Vancouver, please do not hesitate to call
in to this office and discuss with Mr. A.N. Cairns, our Marine
Superintendent, the possibility of employment on our vessels.
Thank you for your Interest in Canadian Pacific.
Yours truly.

trailer wheels and application of

vehicles are considered a part of the
deck ratings regular duties.

Article 4, Section 2 of the current agreement:-
On the "Trailer Princess" with a limited
number of crew, this provision should not
apply.  There is no such provision in the
agreement with the B.C. Tow Boats and other
companies where there is a limited number
of Deck Ratings.
49. Securing Cargo.
Article 4, Section 5, sub-sections (a) and (b) of
the current agreements-
As all cargo on B.C. Coast Steamship
Service vessels is handled in railway
cars or trailers on wheels, the
provisions under these sub-sections are
not applicable and should therefore be
eliminated in its entirety.
50. Taking on Fresh Water.
Article 5, Section 2 of the current agreement;-
Any unlicensed engineroom personnel shall
be required to look after the taking on of
fresh water at any time, consistent with
the ships' schedule.  This work is to be
performed during daylight hours when
possible.

figure.  While recommending to the Board that the basic wages
be increased in accordance with the Company's submission on
Page 37 of this brief, without a comparable increase in tariff
rates, the Company strongly stresses the necessity of having
its proposals implemented to ensure that the operating costs
of the vessels do not reach a stage where it is uneconomical
to continue such services.  Greater flexibility is necessary
in order to keep costs to a reasonable minimum and in view
of the restrictions, penalties and premium payments allowed
to unlicensed deck and engineroom personnel, the Board is
urged to recommend the implementation of the Company's
Proposals.
Under the provisions of the present agreement with the
Union, if an unlicensed deck or engineroom rating works overtime prior to commencement of his regular tour of duty, even
if he works half an hour, a penalty payment of two hours is
required, under the terms of the contract.  The "Princess
Marguerite" is scheduled to leave Seattle at 8:30 a.m. and
as passengers commence to embark at 7:30 a.m., many of the
crew are required to be on duty at 7:30 a.m.  Consequently
they receive two hours overtime for thirty minutes work, which
in most cases is continuous with their regular tour of duty.
Statement showing the overtime paid to Firemen on the
"Princess Marguerite" from May to September 1969 is attached, VANCOUVER, September 29, 1975

Thank you for your letter of 15th September, and

Concerning employment opportunities, since talking
with Ian circumstances have altered somewhat, in
that the Canadian Merchant Service Guild is now
our source of supply for Officers, as per agreement,
and as you may appreciate, the employment situation,
and business itself* are off as a result of the

Good luck in your present endeavours.

Reference your letter of September 17th, File 103-12, respecting Bus Tour Kit.
Will you also please refer to your letter of June 6th,
File 103, Item 2, wherein it was agreed that the use of
Bus Kit would be reviewed and evaluated at the end of the
season.
Bus Tour Kit has served no purpose insofar as B.C.C.S.S.
is concerned, as it did not generate any bus travel during
the past summer season. Evergreen Trailways bus tour
series with us this year, numbering 20 sailings, was cancelled
early in the season due to lack of interest,
.
We are of the opinion that to reprint Bus Kit would be an
unnecessary expense for the 1976 season.

Further investigation into this matter has failed to

The lockers that you refer to in Item 3 as being

could have been opened by anyone.
jhile we consider tlat the matter of responsibility
is inconclusive, we are prepared to offer the sura of
$100.00 in recompense, which is the limit of liability
laid down in Company's Tariff Regulations, and as

There was a tour available during the 1975 season to

it was not patronized too well because of the operator

Dear Oilier
For your information, the Canadian Power squadrons
have chartered the "Princess Patricia" for a Ketchikan
charter, arriving your good city on Wednesday, October
8th at 1315, departing i730.
They have confirmed they will require sightseeing
while In Ketchikan. Their numbers presently total

As these are owners of power motor beats on the
Pacific Coast and across Canada, there may be an interest in any local chapter of Power Squadrons in

Reference your letter of August 14, 1975, concerning the above
mentioned employes.
1 have new received completed Form "D" which la enclosed.
Mr. Jensen did not dais Unemployment Inauranee sickness benefits
during the period of entitlement May 25, 1973 to September 6,1975,
but received benefits from Mutual life Insurence during that period.
He is eware that further Sun Life benefits will commence September 7,
1975.
It will be noted that Dr. Ellis states he was "not aware of work
situation until now but saya he hes been off since February 5."
Dr. Roque, who completed the Form "A" for Mr. Jensen, has only
recently passed him on to Dr. Ellis.
It sppears that both these gentlemen have now decided finally that
what Mr. Jensen nseds is an operation and our employee Is presently
awaiting a bed for this purpose, so there is a good possibility
that he will run out of benefits before he is eble to return to work.

General Claims Agent
Vancouver    - ■:.)..
I am enclosing my complete file on an incident which occurred ....
on September 5, 1975, when the "Carrier Princess" cut through
a gillnet being operated by M/V Kayeml C.
Further to 2nd Officer Volney's written account, our Marine
Superintendent talked with him and Seaman Berthiaume who was at
the helm at the tine, of the incident. He concluded that at the
moment when the ship was about to take evasive action to clear
the net end boet, the boat*a operator Nishoki Inouye proceeded
to travel elong his net et considerable speed and in so doing
completely altered the intent of the "Carrier Princess"to avoid
the net to one of extreme concern and a course of action to keep
clear of Mr. Inouye1s boat which waa now crossing the path of our
vessel, having concern for Mr. Inouye*s safety rather than that
of the net.
Had Mr. Inouye remained stationary and attached to hia net, the
"Carrier Princess" would have taken the necessary action to clear
both boat and net.
He do not feel that we ere in any way responsible for this incident
and it will be appreciated if you will take this matter up on our
behalf and handle to a conclusion.

As of October 1, 1973, an employee contributes 5.85%
of wages earned in U.S. waters to the U.S. Social  x
Security fund, and Canadian Pacific has been assessed
the balance of the employee's portion to the Railroad
Retirement fund, which is now 15.35%, plus .07^0 per
man hour to the Railroad Retirement fund and 4% to the
U.S. Unemployment Insurance. Under U.S. legislation, ■■_
contributions are not refundable, and an employee requires a minimum of 120 months of service to be eligible
for full pension benefits.
For many employees Who associate with our service for a
period of four or five years during the summer season
only, by reason of their being students, it is very
difficult to accumulate the minimum service required}
however, should any of these employees ever take up
residence in the United States, this service is taken:
into consideration for social Security status.
There are numerous benefits besides the pension aspect
of the United States Railroad Retirement, such as disability, survivor benefits, sickness, unemployment
benefits. The latter two benefits are available to
employees after a minimum of seven months' service,
and our employees frequently do use this service and
draw both Canadian and American sick benefits.
We are of the opinion this question was raised by Action
Line approximately 18 to 24 months ago, but regret we
did not retain a copy of the inquiry on that occasion.
Trusting this will assist you in your reply to Mr. Cart,
Yours very truly.

Mr. Yapi.
We have for acknowledgment your letter of September
15th regarding our employee, Mrs. Pat Robson, whom
you encountered While travelling on the "Carrier
Princess" September 12, 1975, between Vancouver and
Nanaimo, and against Whom you have lodged a serious
complaint.
ordinarily a letter such as you have written would
entail an exhaustive investigationt however, as we
had previously been approached by a witness to the
circumstances mentioned, we feel that your claim is
exaggerated. Mrs. Robson is a valued employee and
has served &.C*C.~i.J*  faithfully for many years.
As a common carrier we are not  only concerned with the
attitude of our employees towards our passengers, but
also the .attitude of our passengers towards our employees, and in this particular instance we are amazed
that Mrs. Robson was able to control her emotions to
the degree which she did. Although Canadian Pacific
values highly the patronage of its customers, it
equally values the loyalty of its employees. - 12 -

off may accept a transfer to a position covered by
another wage agreement and shall not lose his seniority
rights provided he returns to his former position covered
by this agreement within seven (7) days after being
recalled, or gives satisfactory reason for not doing so.

Our investigation in to this incident reveals that Johnston

Dear Andys ■•'■ •".;..-.:
Thanks very much for your news from the Windy City,
and glad to hear you arrived back safely.
One of the highlights of any tourist season, of course,
is having you on board the "Princess Patricia," and
we are certainly looking forward to seeing you next

NOrra Hufiteir definitely will retire this fall, and a
replacement for him is our concern at the moment. Of
course, no one in any business is indispensable, and
as each position is filled the person filling same
brings something new and refreshing to it. Norm is
exceptional in his public relations with our passengers,
and as you can imagine, his crew responsibilities are
very heavy. To find someone' who can qualify in both
areas as replacement is difficult, but rest assured,
whoever replaces Norm will carry on the fine tradition
of our service.
With best regards, and looking forward to seeing you
shortly.
Yours very truly.
