carefully and speak only when that person stops talking
(usually indicated by the word "OVER") and you mast also
indicate.your end of conversation by saying "OVER"
B
When given message from the ship, copy it down on paper
and repeat back to the ship what you have copied to ensure there is no misunderstanding, as many times airwave and phone line interference can cause difficulties.
When all conversation is completed and you have nothing
jnore to say, indicate by saying "Nothing further this
end. OUT?
Messages received are to be given soonest to the Office
Manager or  Superintendents, and also passed to Pacific

only six Firemen employed on this vessel, it will be
observed that the overtime per employee is considerable.
In view of these penalties, the unlicensed deck
ratings also receive considerable extra remuneration in the
w.y of a penalty, and the Board will be interested to know
that average wages earned by fifteen senior unlicensed deck
ratings employed during 1969 ranged from $559.00 per month
to $948.00 per month.  Statement showing the actual earnings
in 19*9 of these fifteen senior deck ratings is attac?*ed and
shall be called EXHIBIT "F".  Some of the remuneration is
paid to the employees because of penalties which are allowed
them for doing work while actually performing their regular
tour of duty.  Overtime is also allowed, in many eases, for
two hours per day, whereas only 30 minutes work has been
required of the employee.  Statement showing the actual
earnings in 1969 of eleven of the most senior unlicensed
Engineroom personnel is attached and shall be called
EXHIBIT "G".  Statement is also attached as EXHIBIT "C"
showing that the cost of implementing the Union's demands

-'Montreal,  Cue*
Refarance youjr letter of JUne llth. Files 114-2 and 103-6,
pertaining to Fuel Utilisation Enterprises Ltd. products
aboard our "Princess Patricia."
Tho fitting of the "Cottell Ultrasonic Fuel Reactor"
appears to make sense according'to"write-up, disregarding,
their efficiency figures, but as you know, at present we
are in the process of fitting "Steam Atoraisation" in th©
"Patricia's" firing arrangement, and comparing these two
systems, they are principally doing the same job..
Instead of emulsifying the oil with water,* as in the case
of Fuel. Enterprises method, we are utilising steam;, .and
thia will, in fact, act in a similar *®Y to water additive.
Also, I am sure that once it is put into commission, the
steam atomisation will give us a probable saving of 5%
fuel consumption.
Utilisation of their method for the Diesel engine vessels
would need to be looked at more closely, as when the
engines are stopped over a certain period w© would probably £©t stratification of the mixture and probably
corrosion duo to water and sulphur in the fuel system, etc.
Also, this system would be more applicable to Diesel engines
using a heavy bunker fuel at about 1S00 to 3000 seconds #1
Redwood. At present we use a light-grade Diesel fuel et
about 45 seconds.

Montreal, Que.
With regard to Suggestion #28491 by R.Z. Nelson.
On the face of it, this suggestion appea;,rs to have merit,
but the following will show why it cannot be adopted. '
First would be the cost of purchasing two new propellers
at approximately $20,000 each, plus fitting and drydocking, with a labour cost of $15,000.
Secondly, a relative propeller size to absorb the power
of only one engine would decrease the vessel'a speed to
about 10 knots, at which speed we would be unable to
maintain schedules and therefore lose revenue. Also,
if the vessel was delayed at either loading platform, we
could not increase the speed to pick up time due to the
two-engined power being at maximum rating of 10 knots.
Consumption would be reduced on the two-engine system,
but we have to take into consideration that a vessel
running at 18 knots, taking six hours per voyage, would
take 11 hours at 10 knots.
With this, and' taking into account that fuel consumption
varies directly to the speed of the vessel squared (Cons.
o< v ) V = velocity speed of ship. At present, with four
engines running at reduced speed we have a saving of 20%
fuel, with a relative loss of 6%  speed (i.e., 1.5 cnots).
 2. ....,;
Probably Mr. Nelson could work out relative fuel consumption by himself from the following, using the fornaala
(consumption V2) as a constant*
1. consumption of 4 engines at full power.

To conclude, this suggestion would not assist in an overall

Your letter of June 12, file CAS.47.374.4, in connection with
inspection of our offices by Miss E.S. Anderson, Canada Safety

As requested, we contacted Mr. J.M. Starr with regard to changing
the flourescent tubes. Mr. Starr advised that it wis a janitor's
job to change the tubes, not electricians. Mr. L.E. Wedaan advised
us that the Wharf janitors do not change light tubes.
It was necessary for us to telephone Miss Anderson today to clarify
as to what she meant by "Accounts Department." She had inspected
Local Wharf Freight Offices at the same time and we were under the
impression that perhaps she was confusing the two areas. She
advised that she was definitely referring to B.C.C.S.S. Accounts
Department in her letter to us. In the course of the conversation
Miss Anderson stated that she had received a letter from you ia
which you advised that the work would be done in 1976. She was
adamant that the lights should be lowered and improved immediately.

16.   Stoppage of Work.
The Union demanded that the following paragraph be
added to present Article 1, Section 9s-
Failure of union members to cross a picket
line will not be considered a breach of
contract.
The no-strike provisions of the Industrial Relations
and Disputes Investigation Act applying during the term of a
collective agreement reflect one of the sound labour relations
policies of this country since they offer a guarantee of
industrial peace and stability between contract renewal
periods.
If this Union's demands were to be acceded to, this
national "industrial peace" policy could and would in practice
be defeated.  Indeed employees could during the life of their
collective agreement withdraw their services on every occasion
when other employee groups of the Company or of other firms
with which the Company does business establish a picket line,
whether it is legal or not.
The Company would therefore, operate in a context of
constant insecurity and could possibly face a halt of its
operations caused by its employees' refusal to cross an
illegal picket line established by another group of employees.

of the proposal.
It has always been the function of management, with
the advice of the medical profession, to determine physical
standards to meet the demand of the service and the safety of
the employee.  Setting and maintaining these standards is
performed by the Company's medical doctors thoroughly familiar
with the specific physical requirements in the various
services and is administered in the interests of the employees
as well as of the Company.
The fee is $10.00 with the Company absorbing one-half
and the employee the remaining one-half.  Should the applicant
not meet the requirements of the service the Company absorbs
the entire fee.
The present arrangement works to the mutual advantage
of employer and employee, and should be permitted to continue

29.   Weekly Leave.
The Union demanded that present Article 2, Section 11
be deleted and the following provisions be added and to read,
"Sub-sections (a) and (b)"s-
(a) Except as otherwise provided for in this
Agreement, weekly leave shall be granted to
employees covered by this Agreement, except
those employed on an hourly basis or on laid
up ships, on the basis of two and one-half
(2*§) days* weekly leave for each forty (40)
hours worked, exclusive of overtime.  Such
leave will be given in the ports of Vancouver,
Victoria or Nanaimo.  The basis for calculating
weekly leave shall be five-tenths (.5) of one
(1) day off for each day worked.
(b) When schedules and traffic conditions permit,
these employees shall be granted the two and
one-half (2^) days' off in each week.  When
it is inconvenient to grant this weekly leave
when due, it shall be allowed to accumulate
and be granted at a Inter date.  Where conditions
will permit a portion of the leave to be
allowed in the Ports of Vancouver, Victoria or
Nanaimo, it shall be granted on the following
basis s-
Twenty-four (24) hours free of the
ship shall constitute one (l) day's
leave.
Aside from the increase from .4 per day worked for
each day worked and the cost of providing relief for the
additional weekly leave, the Union's demand would also
result in a large increase in the overtime rate.  The
general increase of thirty-three percent (33%) demanded in
the basic monthly rates would also reflect in paid weekly
leave.  The actual amount of paid leave would be increased

Dear Mrs* Robertsons
Thank you kindly for your letter addressed to Mr.
L.R. Smith with regard to the "princess of Vancouver"
ferry schedules.
As you undoubtedly have noted, the "Princess of
Vancouver" carries considerable truck, trailer and
freight oar traffic on her lower deck. Scheduling
of the vessel is primarily directed towards this
type of traffic, as it ia  essential that rail connections and turn-around time factors of trucks and
trailers be observed closely for their most economical
handling of products carried and labour required in
handling.       .
we appreciate your interest in the "Princess of Vancouver, " and your suggestions will certainly be kept
in mind for any future major schedule change consideration. While we are not considering implementing
a commuter reduced fare at the present time, we are
thinking of instituting such a scheme in the fall.

We understand from very reliable sources that the third
ferry berth at Departure Bay is merely a holding berth
being built, in view of the lack of accommodation for
holding additional ferries in that area.
We also understand there will be no roadway to this area

 The Company requests the Board to recommend that wages
be increased as unders-
All basic rates to be increased by $35.00
per month effective November 1, 1969, and
$20.00 per month, effective November 1, 1970.
With such increases being granted this would give the
B.C. Coast Steamship Service unlicensed deck and engineroom
personnel rates higher than that allowed on all ferries
operating between Vancouver and Vancouver Island.
The Company draws to the attention of the Board that
the cost of applying the wage increases is only a portion
of the increased payroll costs which would be incurred as
a result of the higher wages being applied.  Increases in
basic wages are also reflected in overtime rates, annual
vacation pay, payment for statutory holidays and for weekly
leave.
The intense competition in the ferry service from
and to Vancouver Island must be carefully considered in any
assessment of wage rates.  This competition precludes the
possibility of increased rates on the Vancouver-Nanaimo route
especially vrtiich, of course, can have detrimental effects in
the face of exaggerated wage increases.  Naturally the
continued demands for high level increases being sought is of

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.

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.

Company, when making its wage offer did so on the basis of
a two-year agreement, effective November 1, 1969, and

Company's proposal.

in this instance would be tantamount to negotiating a manning

paragraph of the current agreement as followss-
The Company will contribute the amount of
fifty cents (50*) per man to be made per
day worked AND NOT PER PAYROLL DAY.

Article 2, Section 6 of the current agreement:-
On the "Trailer Princess" where there
are only two seamen on board, the
arrangements for coffee period should
be the same as that in effect on the B.C.

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.

"Princess Marguerite" from May to September 1969 is attached,

or working inside boilers, working inside
smokestacks or in bilges below bottom-deck
plates, working in sealed void spaces or
cleaning oil spills, cleaning tank tops and

off watch shall be paid double the overtime
rate when required to do this work.  When
employees are assigned to do this work, they
shall receive four (4) hours minimum payment
for which four (4) hours work may be reguired.
The underlined portion of the demand represents the
only additional changes sought by the Union.
The Company advised the Union that consistent with
the usual practice, any adjustment with respect to penalty
rate should be on the same percentage basis as the increase
applying to basic wages and the Company is still willing to
grant an increase on this basis, provided the minimum
requirement is withdrawn.

prepared to grant employees who work on a statutory holiday
rates of pay equal to three and one-half times their regular
rates of pay and to grant employees who are on weekly leave
during a statutory holiday rates of pay equal to two and one-
half times their regular rates.
Under the present agreement, if an employee is
required to work on a statutory holiday, he receives his
regular daily rate of pay plus his accumulated paid leave
time and is also allowed equivalent time off with pay, or
in lieu thereof, he is paid at the overtime rate of pay.  In
other words, the employee is paid at two or two and one-half

This present method of payment conforms to Section 31

those provided under the Code, more generous than those

The Union demanded that present Article 2, Section 8,
sub-section (d) be amended to read as follows:-
Where crew members on laid up ships are
required to work a sixth (6th) or seventh
(7th) day in the work week, they shall be
paid at-double time the hourly rates.  If
required to work the statutory holiday as
defined in Section 2 of Article 2, they
shall be paid double time and one-half the
hourly rate as defined in Section 8 (a).
Such overtime shall be paid in lieu of the
payment of weekly leave defined in Section
11 of Article 2.
In Article 2, Section 8, sub-section (b) of the
present agreement, it provides; "Where crew members of laid
up ships, except those on watches are required to work before
8s00 a.m. and after 5:00 p.m., or on Saturdays or Sundays,
i
they will be paid at the overtime rate."  Overtime is paid
at the rate of time and one-half which is common in the

There will be a group of 45 wheelchair patients, plus
10 staff, travelling on the 1200 sailing, JUne 24th,

There will be no meal requirements for this group and
they will stay on board ship when in Nanaimo.
On this occasion, will you please restrict the ladies*

While in Nanaimo eight residents of the Nanaimo General

Items (10), (11) and (12) was contingent upon a satisfactory
wage settlement being negotiated.
20. Uniforms.
Employees in the Deck Department required
to wear uniforms shall be provided by the
Company with shirts and caps (not to exceed
four (4) shirts and one (1) cap per year) and
one (1) pair of overalls per year, free of
cost, these to remain the property of the
Company.
The Union was advised that the Company would consider
providing 2 shirts and 1 cap in the month of May and 2 shirts
and 1 pair of coveralls in December, free of charge.  These
to remain the property of the Company.
21. Overtime Record.
The Union demanded that Article 1, Section 31, subsection (b) be amended to read as follows:-
After authorized overtime has been worked
the Officer in charge shall certify the
overtime by signing the overtime sheet.
If overtime is disputed, the Officer in
charge shall sign the sheet and mark it
"disputed", giving his reasons for disputing
the time submitted.  One (1) copy of the

employee without delay.
The present agreement provides for the employee to
submit his overtime claim within a seventy-two (72) hour
period.  This requirement, which was explained and agreed to
by the senior Union representative during negotiations,is

Furthermore, employees could be tempted to use such a
proposed weapon in order to extract from the Company additional
benefits (which they could not obtain during the open period
of the contract) as a condition of an earlier return to work
following refusal on their part to cross a picket line.
As mentioned on Page 10, the Company has a legal
obligation to the public in accordance with the Railway Act
and the effect of the Union's demand would be tantamount to
forcing the Company to forego its obligations by law.  The
Board is therefore urged to decline the Union's demand in
this respect.
17.   Safe Working Conditions.
The Union demanded the following paragraphs be added
to the present Article 1, Section 14 and to read sub-section
(d), (e), (f) and (g)s-
Hard hats shall be supplied to crew members
working in areas where overhead work is being
performed.
When air chisels, mechanical chippers or scaling
tools are used, ear plugs and plastic face
protectors shall be supplied.
Safety goggles shall be supplied to crewmen
doing manual chipping or scaling.
Suitable sunglasses to be supplied to Quartermasters and Lookouts.
The Company recognizes safety is of the utmost importance

29.
The Company is at a loss to understand why this demand
was submitted.  During negotiations, the Union could not cite
any specific benefits or provisions of the Agreement that
were not being paid to employees working on laid up ships.
Thus this demand is without foundation.
28.    Maintenance Work.
The Union demanded that present Article 2, Section 9
be amended to read as follows:-
The Company agrees to have all sanitary and
maintenance work done between the hours of
8:00 a.m. and 5s00 p.m., except that concerned
with the safe navigation of the ship.  Any of
this work performed between the hours of
5:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m. shall be paid at the
regular overtime rate.
The following provisions are contained in the present
agreement:-
"The Company agrees to have all maintenance
work, except that concerned with the safe
navigation of the ships and sanitary duties,
performed between the hours of 8:,00 a.m. and
5:00 p.m."
"Such sanitary duties shall be confined to daylight hours.  Squeegeeing windows, wiping hand
rails and work howsoever performed on the car

of the proposal.
It has always been the function of management, with
the advice of the medical profession, to determine physical
standards to meet the demand of the service and the safety of
the employee.  Setting and maintaining these standards is
performed by the Company's medical doctors thoroughly familiar
with the specific physical requirements in the various
services and is administered in the interests of the employees
as well as of the Company.
The fee is $10.00 with the Company absorbing one-half
and the employee the remaining one-half.  Should the applicant
not meet the requirements of the service the Company absorbs
the entire fee.
The present arrangement works to the mutual advantage
of employer and employee, and should be permitted to continue
without inclusion in the agreement.
15.   Discrimination.
The Union demanded that the new following item be
added to present Article 1, Section 8:-
Nothing in this Agreement shall require
Union Members to work with non-union help
or to accept hot goods or services.
The unreasonableness of this demand is immediately

of the proposal
It has always been the function of management, with
the advice of the medical profession, to determine physical
standards to meet the demand of the service and the safety of
the employee..  Setting and maintaining these standards is
performed by the Company's medical doctors thoroughly familiar
with the specific phyaical requirements in the various
services and is administered in the interests of the employees
as well as of the Company.
The fee is $10.00 with the Company absorbing one-half
and the employee the remaining one-half.  Should the applicant
not meet the requirements of the service the Company absorbs
the entire fee.

contracts out certain phases of worlc since it does not have the
facilities nor the equipment to perform most of the work.  In
addition, the Company has always had its own shore maintenance
staffs at Victoria and Vancouver carrying out maintenance work
including painting during the course of the season.
The railways reject this demand on principle.  It is a
clear cut and unwarranted infringement of management's functions
The prime duty of the Company is to provide an efficient
and economical transportation service.  This means that all
reasonable means of improving the service and reducing costs
must be used.  Neither Company management :"or management in
any other industry can discharge its responsibilities effectively unless it has the authority and freedom of action to
determine and implement the most efficient and economical
combination of all factors of production, including labour.
The right to contract out is an essential part of this
authority and freedom.  In each situation in which contracting
out is considered, a decision to contract out is made only
after careful and detailed study of the various factors
involved.

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 agreements-
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.

in this instance would be tantamount to negotiating a manning

Board is, therefore, respectfully requested to refuse the
demand.

On January 6, 1970, the Company submitted the following

Article 2, Section 6 of the current agreement:-
On the "Trailer Princess" where there
are only two seamen on board, the

be the same as that in effect on the B.C.

Reference your letter May 20th concerning damage to
Nanaimo Wharf by the "Princess of Vancouver" October
25, 1974.
While it is agreed that the covering form 1409
indicated wear and tear to the dolphin which sustained
the damage, this was intended to indicate deterioration
through wear and tear of the dolphin as a whole. I
have been advised that the nine piles broken in this
mishap were part of a group renewed shortly before the
accident occurred. On this basis I am inclined to
agree with your statement that the Insurance Fund should
contribute an equitable proportion of the replacement
costs of the nine piles.

employees wages which is turned over to the United States
Government along with a matching contribution by the Canadian
Pacific Railway Company and in addition, the Company is obliged
to make a payment of 4%  of such wages of such employees to
the United States Unemployment section of the Railroad
Retirement Board, and in addition is required to make a payment of 2C per man hour to the Board.  As a consequence, the
Company is already contributing 13.55% of U.S. earnings of the
employee plus 2<? per man hour.  During the year 1969, thecost
of this assessment amounted to $80,300, a direct charge to
operating expenses.
The assessments under the U.S. Railroad Retirement
Act are mandatory under governmental statute, and therefore
are not subject to the jurisdiction of any agreement between
employer and employee.
The present arrangement works to the mutual advantage
of employer and employee and should be permitted to continue
without inclusion in the agreement.

Dear lam
With reference to correspondence and conversations
concerning the 1976 Alaska programme for the
"Princess Patricia."
Following meeting with General Manager, Coastal
Marine Operations, and review of anticipated cost
factors, reflecting a probable increase in fuel
oil in fall of 1975, wage settlements with the
S.I.U., and negotiation of a new contract with the
Canadian Merchant Service Guild, it is apparent that
cur rates will have to be increased by 15% over 1975
tariff. Insofar as charger rates are concerned, this
means that the applicable charge for passengers between 300-310 during the 1976 season, will be
$155,000.00.
We are very concerned with the continuing increase
in rates, but as we are all quite familiar with the
increased cost of operation and the need for a degree
of profit, the upgrading of rates to our customers Is
most necessary. We trust that the increase shown
herein will still be a sufficiently attractive selling

and the employees.
The Union demanded the following provisions-
Wages and overtime are to be based on one
hundred and sixty-two (162) hours per month
and the hourly overtime rate to be double
basic hourly rate.
Aside from the overtime rates reflecting the
increase in the basic rates, the Board is requested to deny
the change in the basis of calculating overtime from the
present 173 hours per month to 162 hours per month demanded
by the Union.  The basis of 173 hours per month is general
throughout the Maritime Industry and the Company sees no
reason why there should be any change in this basis.
The Union also demanded the following provision:-
Effective November 1, 1969, the monthly
wage rates will be increased by one dollar
and fifty cents ($1.50) per day worked for
the employees covered by this agreement,
who are in receipt of subsistence provided
by the Company.
The present agreement provides for the monthly wage
rates to be increased by $1.00 per day for the Deck and
Engineroom Ratings who are in receipt of subsistence from
the Company, and the Company to deduct from the wages of such
employees an amount equivalent to $1.00 per day to pay for
such subsistence provided these employees.  The calculation

covered by this agreement.
The Union demanded that the following provision be
added to the present Article 2, Section 12, and to read,
"Sub-section (b)":-
When employees covered by this Agreement are
required to work cargo in a port where there is
a longshore union, they shall be paid, in
addition to their regular wages, the rates of
that Union.
The Company advised the Union that no cargo is handled
or worked on B.C. Coast Steamship Service vessels and therefore this provision would not apply.
31.   Special Commodities.
The Union demanded that the rate paid for handling
special commodities be increased from ten cents (IOC) per
hour to fifty cents (50C) per hour, thereby amending
Article 2, Section 13 of the present agreement.
While this provision is contained in the present
agreement there is absolutely no need for same due to the
fact no special commodities are handled by crew members on
B.C. Coast Steamship Service vessels.  In the circumstances
the request should be denied and the present clause deleted
from the Agreement.

Attached are  Weekly Analysis of Trailer Traffic for
week ending May 31, 1975, and Statement of Monthly
Analysis for period May 1-31, 1975 inclusive.
Monthly Business Conditions
CP Transport - General business conditions have contributed to their decremse in traffic. This includes
lumber products from the Island, which are depressed
compared to last year. Their "Bulk and Heavy Haul"
division is expected to increase traffic in future.
Introduction of CP Express again is not expected to
affect the traffic picture. In addition, they are
holding MT trailers on the Island for loads rather
than making quick return MT.
Johnston Terminals
Business conditions still causing decrease in their
traffic. Fish movement expected last half JUne. They
are anticipating upsurge if I.W.A. contract settled
without strike in July.
Capital Freichtwava
Advise have obtained new contract, which will improve
their carryings. Last week May shows increase for
first time for several months.

by 25%; viz: from 4/10 to 5/10 of a day worked.  A wage
increase of thirty-three percent (33%) plus a twenty-five
percent (25%) improvement in the leave factor represents a
total payroll increase of forty-one percent (41%).  A
twenty-five percent (25%) increse in weekly leave compensation
is equivalent to an increase of eight point one percent (8.1%)
of the employees' total earnings for regular work performed.
The principle of the five day, forty-hour work week is
recognized generally universally throughout Canada and the
Board is requested to decline the Union's demand for improved
weekly leave.
30.   Working Cargo.
The Union demanded that the rate of one dollar and
thirty-six cents ($1.36) be increased to one dollar and
seventy-five cents ($1.75), thereby amending Article 2,
Section 12 of the present agreement, and to read, "Subsection (a) ".
On the "Princess of Vancouver" or "Trailer Princess",
when deck ratings are required to block trailer wheels or
apply pads under the landing gears of such vehicles while on
watch, in addition to their regular wages, such employees
shall receive compensation for performing such work at the
cargo rate specified under Article 2, Section 12 of the
current agreement.
 Sidney Freight
In past were shipping a fair number of straight trucks
as well as drop trailers. Due to economics have
eliminated the former (which were rentals) and loading
trailers to capacity, thereby reducing number of units
utilized. Tonnagewlae, traffic is still good.
Intercity Stress
Still holding well, due contracts for handling plasterboard a/c Westroc Industries, and soft drinks a/c Gray
Beverage Co. Ltd. Also, lumber ex Vancouver Island is
improving in some instances, which traffic Intercity
now handling. Formerly, British Pacific Transport
handled same.
mus xranffipfflrt,
Major commodity handled is gypsum board a/c Domtar under
contract, which traffic still holding well.
Mobile Homes
We handled 92 units this year compared to 247 same period
in 1974.

It is interesting to note that while the Union insists
on having all sanitary and maintenance work performed between
the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., except that concerned
with the safe navigation of the ship, they have demanded when
any of this work is performed between the hours of 5:00 p.m.
and 8:00 a.m., such work shall be paid at the regular overtime
rate.  On January 6, 1970, the Company proposed to the Union
that all maintenance work, except that concerned with the safe
navigation of the ship and sanitary duties, be performed
between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.  The schedules
of some of the ships are such that it is necessary to carry
out maintenance work before 8:00 a.m. and after 5:00 p.m.  In
the case of the "Princess Marguerite" particularly, which
vessel leaves Seattle, Washington, at 8:30 a.m., passengers
commence to embark at 7:30 a.m. and therefore, it is
necessary to carry out some maintenance work prior to 7:30 a.m.
Over the years, the provisions contained in the current
agreement have worked well, with a minimum of hardship to the
crew, at the same time maintaining the flexibility necessary
for the efficient operation of these vessels.  It would appear
that their demand is just another means of obtaining an overtime payment for work which should normally form part of the
regular duties.  In the circumstances, we would ask the Board
to recommend that no change be made in this clause.

Dear Sirs:
Iris refers to or telephone conversetlen concerning fcbs
rejection of Mr. Gary Blanchard, epplleant for Engine V
Storekeeper's position on tarn  "Carrier Princess."
This will confirm that thia was due to the man's unseeaanlike
beaavior on eac.= of fens two occasions he was employed by thia
Compeny.
He was called for the 4:00 a.m. watch on May 21, 1971, and
appeared in the boiler room under the influence of alcohol.
A few minutes after he disappeared from hia watch and waa
found asleep in his bunk. Several attempts were made to
wake hia up over the next few noure but without success. When
called for his watch at 1530, seme date, he waa not in hia
cabin or the aess. The Storekeeper reported that he aaw
Mr. Bianchard leave tne snip at Victoria, carrying a suitcase.
The storekeeper checked fcfcs mar's cabin and reported thet
Blanchard'a personal effects had been removed. Turn man did
not report to anyone taat he was leaving the veaael. This waa
reported to the Seafarer's International Union by letter on
June 15, 1971. file S-27793, wuen ve also advised thet it wee
our intention not to re-employ this sum.
Severtneiess, tnia sum waa given a second efrence and we re-employed
hia on Auguet 24, 1974, but unfortunately there wes e repetition
of toe fIrat incident when he became intoxicated end walked off
the job en September 24, 1974.
Trust thia will aatiafactorily explain our concern.
Youra truly,

Dear Mr. Sagastuae:
Thank you for your letter of May 21, which cleared up the
mystery of a telegram 1 received frost you a few days ago.
We have hired several Engineers in the past few weeks ea our
seasee haa Just opened up* it must be appreciated that from
now on openings will become fewer and fewer aod I would say
that from September on there will probably not be any vacancies
occurring. I do not wish to discourage you but 1 know from
personal experience thet the time you have in mind to emigrate
la not s favourable one* Your beat chance would be ia May,
whether you seek employment with Canadian Pacific or with any
other coapany over here.
You would also have to join the Canadian Merchant Service Guild
but 1 do not foresee any problem there. Before we can make a
definite offer of employment we de have to eatablish that you
hold aa Engineer's Ticket and the minimum we can accept ia a
BritLa Board of Trade 2nd Cleea (Motor). Will you kindly
advise ia thia regard. If you do not have a Ticket, there ia
yfum  possibility chat we cen offer you a job aa a Junior Engineer
but this would only be if there were so ticketed 4th Claaa
Engtneera available.
I aa eorry I cannot be more optimistic at this time but, as stated
previously, if you do emigrate to this part of Canada do not hesitate
to cell ia to see us and we will do what we can for you and your
friend. Wishing you every auceeas in your attempts to emigrate.
Yours very truly,

Dear Mr. Carufel:
After your call into this office today concerning employment
I consulted your file.
It revealed that you worked only one trip on the "Prineees
Patricia" in 1974. During thia time you refused to work on
two consecutive days which you claimed was due to a headache.
Also on file is a statement from the Chief Steward to the effect
that you were not suitable for employment vith this Company due
to the poor quality of your work.
In addition, I have on file a letter from the Chief of Medical
Services in Montreal concerning the medical examination you had
on August 9, 1974. lie states that you have a disorder of both
elbows and, therefore, you are not considered suitable for
employment.
In view of the foregoing, I have no alternative but to refuse
your application for re-employment.
Yours truly,

We have at the present time a full complement of Coffeai floeti
Assistants on the "Princess of Vancouver."
It is noted from your record that you stayed only a few weeks
with us last year returning to school at the height of the season.
I would point out that we will give preference to employees who
stayed with us for the entire 1974 season and, therefore, are
unable to make you a definite offer of employment.
If you happed to be in Vancouver in the near future, please call
into this office and we will discuss the matter further.
Yours truly,
