Since its inception the Company has had shipyard firms
and other outside contractors perform a variety of maintenance
and overhaul works on laid-up ships during the period prior to
the commencement of the regular sailing season. The Company
contracts out certain phases of work 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 nor 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.

 rates on the Vancouver-Nanaimo route have not been increased
for over 35 years; in fact the present rates are less than
those in effect over 50 years ago. Notwithstanding this
situation, the Company made an offer to the Union which they
considered was fair and reasonable, and in addition the Company
agreed to other concessions which were favourable to the men.
It is considered the present request of the employees goes far
beyond the area of a fair and reasonable wage, and consequently
the Company cannot bear the burden which would be laid on them
by increases of the magnitude of those requested.
EMPLOYEES' PROPOSALS
14.   Union Recognition and Employment.
The Union demanded that present Article 1, Section
1 (b) be amended to read as follows:-
The Company agrees that during the period this
Agreement is in effect all unlicensed personnel
to be hired shall be requested through the office
of the Union. This shall also include the hiring
of all personnel engaged in deck and engineroom
ratings * work during the period the vessels are
laid up.
During negotiations the Union informed the Company that
the intent of this request was to eliminate the contracting out
of boiler cleaning. As the Company interprets this request
this is one phase of contracting out of work which would be
followed by demands for all forms of contracting out of work to
be denied the Company.

commence on the day subsequent to the day
victualling ceases and shall cease on the day
on which victualling is resumed.
There is no justification in this request as the
hourly rates on laid up ships were established on the basis
that it compensated employees for weekly leave, room and
board, as provided for in Article 2, Section 3, sub-section
(e) of the present Agreement vfaich reads as followss-
"It is agreed the hourly rate of pay as
defined in sub-section (a) of this Section
compensates the employees for weekly leave
and room and board."
The Board is respectfully requested to deny this
demand.
The Union demanded that present Article 2, Section 8,
sub-section (f) be amended to read as followss-
Employees working on laid up ships at
Victoria, whose home port is Vancouver
or Nanaimo, shall receive transportation
and meals to their home port when on
weekly leave.
This provision is already included in the Union's
request contained in Article 1, Section 16, "Transfer and

stated, the Company agreed to an allowance of five dollars

Union's demand for an increase in the rate of pay.
24.   Sailing Shorthanded.
The Union has demanded that present Article 2, Section
3, (a), (b) and (c) be deleted and replaced with the following:
In the event of any ship sailing shorthanded,
wages and weekly leave that would otherwise
be paid to the members who are absent shall
be paid to the crew members in the particular
department affected until such time as the
vessel's crew is complete.  All crew members
affected by this clause shall at all times be
covered by the overtime clauses in this contract
when working in excess of eight (8) hours per
day.
Under the provisions of sub-section 3 (a) of the
existing agreement, it provides; "Where the work of the
missing watchkeeping crew member is performed by a non-
watchkeeping unlicensed deck personnel, the employee performing such work shall receive overtime for any time worked in
excess of eight hours in any one day."  Under the present
agreement, it is considered the employee is amply compensated,
especially as he receives overtime for any time worked in
excess of eight (8) hours in any one day.
Under the provisions of sub-section 3 (b) of the
existing agreement, it provides; "Where the vessel sails

Attached please find space availability compiled April
25th, indicating that availability of staterooms is now
booked at 91% of capacity.
All seasonal sailings appear to be firming up, especially
August 27th and September 4th, On May 31st sailing we
have had two cancellations of large families, resulting
in an increase in available staterooms, but on this sailing, the June 8th and June 24th sailings, wa are having
Mr. Morgan make a special effort in the Seattle area to
increase awareness of space on these sailings, and have
advised key agencies in the Lower Mainland as well. Mr.
Morgan is also working with a senior citizens group in
Seattle, with the possibility of taking sgtace on the
August 27th sailing.
The May 15th Hawaiian Polynesia charter has been fully
booked, and sturrocks May 23rd charter is progressing
favourably. Both fall charters by Hawaiian Polynesia and
Sturrocks are also progressing favourably at this time.
On the September 28th sailing there are only 30 staterooms
available, and special advertising as per the enclosed,
will be going out to Travel Agencies and interested groups
very shortly.
The Canadian Power Squadrons have given us their letter
of intent for October 6th charter, and contract is being
prepared accordingly.
 21.
The Company's proposal is common to the railway
industry in Canada to say nothing of marine operations
conducted by Canadian Pacific and Canadian National
Railways on the Okanagan Lake. As the British Columbia
Coast Steamship Service is an integral part of the Company's
rail service any deviation from our annual vacation
proposal would place the Company in an untenable position.
The Board is therefore respectfully requested to refuse the
Union's demand and to accept the Company's proposal.
23.   Statutory Holidays.
The Union demanded that present Article 2, Section
2 (a), be amended to read as follows:-
All employees shall be given ten (10)
Statutory Holidays, namely, New Year's Day,
Good Friday, Easter Monday, Victoria Day,
Dominion Day, Labour Day, Thanksgiving Day,
Remembrance Day, Christmas Day and Boxing
Day off, is possible.  If not possible, and
they are called to work on any of these
days, they shall receive two point five
(2.5) days paid leave in addition to their
regular wages. Employees on weekly leave
shall be granted an additional one point
five (1.5) day's leave.
The Company stated during negotiations and conciliation

the cost of two meals, one when they travel from Victoria to
Vancouver, and the other meal when returning from Vancouver
to Victoria when assigned to laid up  ships. The payment of
five dollars ($5.00) is in addition to their fare which is
provided by the Company.
The Union was advised that the Company's acceptance
of suib-section (f) was contingent upon a satisfactory wage
settlement being negotiated.
The Union demanded that present Article 2, Section 8,
sub-section (g) be amended to read as followss-
All vacuuming, sougeeing, chipping and
painting of boilers and boiler rooms and
enginerooms shall be considered as work
to be done by unlicensed personnel of
the engineroom department covered by this
agreement.
For the reasons already advanced by the Company in
its submission concerning "Union Recognition & Employment"
on pages 6, 7 and 8, the Board is respectfully requested to
refuse the Union's demand.
The Union demanded that the following provision be
added to the present Article 2, Section 8, and to read,

All benefits of this Agreement shall be
paid on laid up  ships."

case, the unlicensed Engineroom personnel may be required
to carry out his usual cleaning work as well as maintain the
necessary watch.  It is considered he is more than well
compensated for any work performed and under the circumstances,
the Board is requested to deny any changes in the existing

The Union demanded that present Article 2, Section 6,
sub-section (a) be amended so that a 20 minute coffee break

The provision allowed in the current agreement is
for 15 minutes for coffee at 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.,
which times may be varied, but such variation not to exceed
one-half hour either way.
The agreed time of fifteen (15) minutes for coffee is
a common one to many industries and insofar as the British
Columbia Coast Steamship Service is concerned, it has proven
to be satisfactory.  Inasmuch as it is deemed sufficient by
Management and the employees, the Board is requested to

The Company requests the Board to recommend that wages
be increased as under:-
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 \itfiich, 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

The Union demanded that present Article 2, Section 14
be amended to read as follows:-
Employees covered by this Agreement shall be
paid the rate specified below when cleaning
double-bottom tanks, fish oil tanks, cleaning
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 required.
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.

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 later 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
bas is:-
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

of the Seafarers' International Union of Canada advised our
Company in writing as unders-
"In accordance with the 'Termination
Clause' of the current agreement
between your company and this organization,
please be advised that we are desirous of
re-opening the agreement to discuss proposed
revisions of wages and working conditions."
"We will be pleased to meet with representatives of your company at an early date to
commence collective bargaining. May we
hear from you so that meetings can be
arranged for the purpose of negotiations?"
6. The Union's proposals were submitted on August 29, 1969,
a copy of which is attached, and shall be called EXHIBIT "B".
The Company met with representatives of the employees on
November 12, 1969 and on December 3rd, 1969. As the parties
were unable to reach an agreement at these meetings, the
Union advised the Company they were requesting the appointment
of a Conciliation Officer, available under the Industrial

Similar requests have been made on the Canadian National
and Canadian Pacific Railways from time to time and have been
rejected by Boards of Conciliations to say nothing of numerous
arbitration decisions in support of management's right to
contract out work.
14 A. The Union demanded that the following paragraphs be
added to present Article 1, Section 1, and to read sub-section
(f) and (g):-
The Union agrees that the Company has the right
to have all personnel examined for fitness. All
such examinations shall be at the expense of the
Company.
Where the Company refuses to employ any man for
medical reasons, the question of that man's fitness
for full sea duties in the category in which he is
to be employed may be referred to a competent
medical authority for determination, acceptable to
both the Company and the Union.
Medical examination and physical fitness have long been
a prerequisite of entry into any of the services of this Company
with the exception of clerical employees and have never been
matters of contractual obligation or agreement.  The employees
now propose that they become part of the collective agreement.
The employees should, therefore, be prepared to advance good
reason why a clause in the agreement is now necessary; so far,
in discussion, no reasons have been offered. This alone, in
the opinion of management, is enough to warrant the rejection

 rates on the Vancouver-Nanaimo route have not been increased
for over 35 years; in fact the present rates are less than
those in effect over 50 years ago. Notwithstanding this
situation, the Company made an offer to the Union \dhich they
considered was fair and reasonable, and in addition the Company
agreed to other concessions which were favourable to the men.
It is considered the present request of the employees goes far
beyond the area of a fair and reasonable wage, and consequently
the Company cannot bear the burden which would be laid on them
by increases of the magnitude of those requested.
EMPLOYEES' PROPOSALS
14.   Union Recognition and Employment.
The Union demanded that present Article 1, Section

The Company agrees that during the period this
Agreement is in effect all unlicensed personnel
to be hired shall be requested through the office
of the Union. This shall also include the hiring
of all personnel engaged in deck and engineroom
ratings' work during the period the vessels are
laid up.
During negotiations the Union informed the Company that
the intent of this request was to eliminate the contracting out
of boiler cleaning. As the Company interprets this request
this is one phase of contracting out of work which would be
followed by demands for all forms of contracting out of work to
be denied the Company.

Reference your letter of April 15th, File 7-1-0, concerning lumber loads on trailers unloaded from vessels

We appreciate your bringing this matter to our attention
as a safety hazard, and if this condition exists, responsible shippers will be so advised. However, of late
we have had no complaints from the Hostlers regarding
such* and would appreciate your giving us trailer numbers
in future, of lumber loads you feel are inadequately
secured, so that contact may be made with real offender
rather than general request of all truckers.
Regarding the incident at ^ier A-l involving centre
plate between vessel and dock.  Since the time of your
writing, the unloading of vessels at this dock has been
observed a number of times, and the plate has not moved
on these occasions. The problem will be watched and
rectified if same occurs, and if practical, because
tidal conditions may be a contributing factor.

During negotiations the Union informed the Company that
the intent of this request was to eliminate the contracting out

this is one phase of contracting out of work which would be
followed by demands for all forms of contracting out of work to
be denied the Company.

Mr. Karl C. Gresowski, President
Hawaiian Polynesia Tours
2020 No. Broadway
Santa Ana, California 92706.
Dear Karl:
We are very pleased to receive from Mara, your
passenger list for the May 15th charter of the
"Princess Patricia■ and to congratulate your firm
once again on its effectiveness in securing a full
ship.
Partially due to the cancellation of the "Prince
George," but also in view of the Pacific Northwest
becoming a greater convention-accented area, we
are being asked to perform more short charters; that
is, Gulf Islands, or as far north as Ketchikan, than
heretofore. However, this does not preclude our
continuing relationship with those who desire to book
the "Princess Patricia" to Skagway, Alaska,as in the
past, and the purpose in writing is to ascertain if
you have as yet had an opportunity to concern yourself with your 1976 plans respecting Alaska charters.
We have already received a request from Sturrock
Pioneer Tours for May 23rd and September 20th positions,
and will be pleased to protect Hawaiian Polynesia with
May 15th and September 12th positions as soon as you
are able to decide your 1976 programme.

P.O. Box 49

Dear Mr. Ulmert
Wt do appreciate your writing to us under date of
April 17th concerning the possibility of the
"l rincess  Patricia" remaining for a longer period
in Wrangell during 1975.
The familiar sound of the  "Prince George's" whistle
as she enters the inner harbour in Vancouver,  will
be missed by those of us associated with shipping, as
much as the residents of Wrangell who look forward to
the  "George's" arrival as well as that of other visiting Alaska cruise ships.
While we are pleased to have again scheduled the
"Patricia"  into Wrangell this  year,   because of  our commitments,   both publicized and otherwise,   it ia doubtful
if any extended period of time can be entertained this
season.    However,   we will  take this  matter up with the
Master of the  "Patricia,? and subject to tides,  etc.,
will determine what possibility there may be for an
extension on some sailings.    The matter will again be
reviewed during the course of this year respecting our
1976 scheduling.
With every good wish.
Yours very truly.

Dear Mr. Lenz*
In response to your enquiry concerning Mr. William
Campbell, formerly in our employ, the following reply
is submitted.
Mr. Campbell was spoken to on May 11th in a disciplinary
manner by his immediate supervisor and with the concurrence of the ship's Master, pertaining to the unsatisfactory performance of his duties, and as a result
of this, submitted his resignation on May 12th.
With regard to overtime, Campbell, by reason of his
misinterpretation of the Union/Company working agreement, repeatedly submitted overtime claims, to which
he was not entitled, and was therefore refused payment.

Dear Mr. Cairns:
Reference your letter April 21st,  in which you
present a claim for   975.00 covering repairs to
your automobile,  damaged on our  "Princess of
Vancouver,"  4:00 p.m. sailing from Nanaimo, April
16,  1975.
The report of this incident submitted by the ship's
Officer,  stated that there were four persons in the
front seat of your vehicle at  the time,  and I am
sure you will agree that your ability to effectively
manoeuvre the auto as directed,  would be somewhat
restricted.
However,   in consideration of all the circumstances
pertaining to this unfortunate incident,   it is  felt
that the responsibility for damage should be shared,
and we are therefore prepared to settle your claim
for $75-00 on a 50-50 basis.
Will you please advise further.
Yours very truly.
Manager,  B.C.C.S.S.

Dear Ms. Mancini:
Thank you for your letter of April 14.
We have cancelled Rooms 3<V> 302 426 430 and 409 on our May 31 sailing
of the "Princess Patricia!* as requested.
We will require to have full names of those occupying Training staterooms as soon as possible in order to complete early ticketing for your
tour.
There is no duty-free shop aboard the "Princess Patricia" and merchandise
in the gift shop as well as bar service are at regular prices.
Canadian citizens may purchase merchandise up to $50.00 duty free if they
have remained in U.S. territory 48 hours or they may purchase their full
quota for a year of $100.00 if they have remained in U.S. territory seven
days.
With regard to tipping,, which, of course, is a guide only, two dollars
per day is considered quite adequate, with one-third b*>ing paid to the
bedroom steward and two-thirds to their table steward.
We will require to know which sitting your group prefer and for your
information enclose copy of bulletin giving hours of meal service.
We are also forwarding 50 copies of our Alaska brochure as well as a few
copies of the Embarkation and General Information pamphlet which normally
are enclosed with passage tickets; however, in the case of tour parties
it has been found to be more satisfactory for tickets to be held on hand
here and picked up by tour escort, thereby, eliminating the possibility of
same not arriving in your possession before departure because of interrupted mail service.
We hope you will find these arrangements satisfactory.
Yours very truly,

Dear Mr. Christensent
Thank you very kindly for your letter of April 16th
requesting a block booking to accommodate 50 passengers on the "Princess Patricia" during the last two
weeks in JUly 1976.
We will be pleased to register this request, and
early this fall, at which time all operators' requirements are reviewed, we will be able to advise availability of space. As we have operators who have
booked with us ovar a good number of years, until we
have their requirements we are unable to commit ourselves. Do you have an alternate date in the event
that bookings exceed the percentage allowable for
tour operators? As soon as folders for 1976 are
available, we will see that a supply is forwarded to
Wa do appreciate the number of bookings with which we
have been favoured as the result of the discontinuance
of the "Prince George," and look forward to having
your clients sail with us on the "Princess Patricia."

Dear Wallys
We were very pleased to learn that arrangements
made for the evening of April 19th on behalf of
Seaspan International Ship and Shore Social club
proved successful, and were certainly pleased that
the weather imp roved to the extent  of moderating
the heavy swell that was in evidence early morning
of the 19th,
Our Chief steward has confirmed that the additional
passengers carried over and above guarantee of 300,
totalled 41 plus  four Band members.    The additional
amount due therefore, at your convenience, amounts
to 41 passengers at $14.00 each -  $574.00,  plus  four
Band members at $5.00 each - $20.00, a total of
$594.00,  and will be pleased to receive your cheque
in due course.
Passenger's portion of ticket which was issued representing the  foregoing,   is attached for your records.
Respecting gratuities,   I have made arrangements for
this  item.
Yours very truly,

Due to the fact that our service between Victoria — Seattle

drawn, we have a number of employees whom we will have to
accommodate before we can give consideration to employing others.
Owing to the foregoing circumstances 1 am afraid we cannot give

it will be necessary for you to be available at short notice.
Sorry 1 cannot be of more help to you at this time but thank you
for your interest in Canadian Pacific.

Dear Ms. Walker:
Thank you for your letter of April 16, 1975, enquiring aa
to the possibility of employment on this Company's vessels.
Due to the fact that our service between Victoria — Seattle
and Victoria — Port Angeles has now been permanently withdrawn, we have a number of employees whom we will have to
accommodate before ve can give consideration to employing others.
In any event, it will be necessary for you to be in Vancouver
and available at short notice should a position arise. If you
wish to come to Vancouver end take this chance, that is up
to you but owing to the foregoing circumstances I am afraid we
cannot give you a definite promise of employment.
Sorry I cannot be of more help to you at this time but thank
you for your interest in Canadian Pacific.
Yours truly,
Manager,

Dear Mr. Kemp:
With reference to your letter of March 17, 1975, and further
to our telephone conversation yesterday with regard to possible
summer employment on this Company's vessels.
It is regretted that we are unable to give you a definite
promise of employment at this time. In the first instance your
service with us last summer was limited to two weeks, secondly
there is the problem of your not being available until June 15, 1975,
and thirdly our service between Victoria - Seattle and Victoria -
Port Angeles has now been permanently withdrawn resulting in long «-
term employees being laid off. These people will have to receive
priority for employment on the "Princess Patricia."
If you wish to go to the expense of travelling to Vancouver on the
off-chance that a position will became available, that is up to
you but in view of the foregoing, our position must be appreciated.
Yours truly,
Manager,

Dear Mr. Martin:
We were sorry to learn from your memo of April 9th
of the cancellation of the Becvar family July 2nd ,
sailing of the "Princess Patricia."
Enclosed is Money Order No. 59876 in amount $80.00,:
covering deposit paid by them. This letter, unfortunately, will be slightly delayed due to postal
disruptions in Canada, but trust it will not be too
tardy in reaching you.
We are naturally disappointed at not having the
Becvars travelling with us again, and we sincerely
hope the cancellation is not as a result of ill health
or any other misfortune in their family. The Becvars
have been appreciated by the "Patricia's" crew, and
would like to know if there is an illness in the
family, in order that we might write to them. This
information, together with their home address, would
be appreciated.
Yours very truly,

I would appreciate knowing if a tour can be
arranged to the points mentioned within the time
limit of the "Princess Patricia's" call at Rupert,
and the coat of same.    We had an opportunity of
speaking to Harry Burchill yesterday, and he feels
if a tour  including either point could be developed,
it would be of great interest to  "Princess
Patricia's" passengers.    As you know,   the "Princess
Patricia" is scheduled to arrive Prince Rupert
1300, departing 1645? however,   it is felt that
the ship will not arrive Rupert factually until
about 1330.
Will appreciate any viewpoints you wish to make.

Dear Mr. Wistinghausen:
Thank you for your letter of recent date concerning
employment on this Company's vessels.
Due to the fact that our service between Victoria
and Seattle and Victoria and Port Angelas has now been
permanently withdrawn, we have a number of employees
whom we will have to accomodate before we can give
consideration to employing others.
In any event, it will be necessary for you to be in
Vancouver and available at short notice should a position
arise. If you wish to come to Vancouver and take this
chance, that Is up to you but owing to the foregoing
circumstances I ara afraid w© cannot give you a definite
promise of employment.
Sorry I cannot be of more help to you at this time but
thank you for your interest in Canadian Pacific.

Dear »
As you are aware the B.C.C.S.S. operation in
Victoria has now closed down and we will no longer
be able to forward your pay cheques to the Wharf
Ticket Office.
Payroll regulations with regard to the distribution
of pay cheques are as follows:
Pay cheques are to be delivered on or by the
second Thursday in each month to place of employment (i.e. "Princess of Vancouver"). If you will
be on leave on the forthcoming pay day, you are
to deposit a wage transfer slip with this office
at least two days prior to pay day.
On a permanent basis or if you are away from work
on extended leave, your pay cheque may be made
available at the CP. Rail location of your choice.
It should be noted, however, that this arrangement
cannot be made for leave of short duration. In
these circumstances and if you reside out of town,
we will arrange to have your cheque forwarded by
registered mail but this cannot be done on a continuing
basis.
Please advise this office of your intentions as soon as
possible, ensuring that we have your current address on
record here.

..Dear Karli ■,
Many thanks for your letter of April 8th enclosing
Agreement for the September 28th half-ship assignment,  also request for additional accommodation.
< As,, you probably have now heard,  Canadian National's
"Prince George" was the victim of-a serious fire, a
few, weeks ago.    As a result of this   fire,  and the
cost-.of repairs,   Canadian National have decided to
.cancel their  cruise ship this season instead of next
season,  as previously..announced.    This has caused us
to fill up our ha If of the ship-very quickly'with
Canadian National cancellations  in* addition to our
own sales,  and we sincerely regret that we do not how
have sufficient accommodation to offer you on the
basis outlined  in your'letter.
The only cabins remaining are of the (f) and (g)
categories;  that "is,  the higher-priced staterooms,  and
even they are going steadily.     However,   if you do have
a specific request for'this  type  of accommodation,   on
Mara's request we would be prepared to allow you 20%
commission ort alL room sales.     For your information,
rat© for (f)  category rooms  in Canadian funds  $1248.00;
(g)   category rooms $1328.00,   or deluxe accommodation,
of which there are still a couple of high category
rooms,  $1750.00.    The foregoing rooms  cannot be split

Dear Mr. Berry:
Your letter of February 13, 1975, which you wrote
to Mr. B.D. Margetts applying for employment on our
vessels has been forwarded to this office for handling.
It is very much regretted that due to your age w© are
unable to offer you a position on our Alaska Cruise
Ship for which you have expressed preference. This
is due to th# fact that the "Princess Patricia" operates
for part of the trip in U.S. waters and if® would b© in
great trouble with the immigration authorities if wo had
crew under the age of 1$.
While IS is the nonstal age of employment with this
department (Workmen's Compensation Board regulations)
It is quite possible that we will be able to employ you
on our ferry the "Princess of Vancouver" which operates
from Vancouver to Manairao. If you are interested in
joining the "Princess of Vancouver", kindly advise as
soon as possible when you will be available for work.
It should be noted that your trip to Vancouver will be
made entirely at your own expense.

Dear Mr. Werner:
Thank you for the opportunity of discussing the
possible use of the  "Princess  Patricia"  for a
three or four-day cruise in 1976,  either through
the San Juan Islands and Seymour Narrows,  or to
Ketchikan, Alaska. ;
Just as soon as we are in a position to confirm
arrangements of the two charterers with whom we have      .,->,
a gentleman's agreement  for protection in the fall
of 1976,  we will advise the availability of date to
your association.
We are hopeful of establishing rates for the 1976
season by early summer, but as an approximation for
your present consideration,  would suggest charges
will be in the vicinity of $20,000.00 per day.
An example schedule to Ketchikan would permit departure from Vancouver at 8t30 p.m.  on September 28th,
for arrival Ketchikan at 1:15 p.m. September 30th;
departure same day at 3s30 p.m. would permit arrival
in Vancouver at 9*00 a.m.,  October 2nd.
If British Columbia water* are preferred, the "Patricia"
could depart Vancouver the same evening,  September 28th,

for ship registration and passenger shopping and sight-

UNION SECURITY (continued)
The British Columbia Coast Steamship Service and the Canadian National Steamship
Company accepted men dispatched by the union, whether experienced or not, although
according to the agreement should a man not be experienced, competent and satisfactory
the company had every right to fill the position, •'•'he ttnion Steamships Limited
during the period from January 1st, 1950 to April 30th, 1950, placed orders with the
Seafarers' International Union of North America for 37 experienced menj of these
the union was only able to fill 26 positions. A number of the men dispatched were
turned away because they did not possess the necessary lifeboat certificate,
making it necessary for that company to fill the other vacancies. Experience with
prisferentiol hiring has thus not been satisfactory in the past and the companies are
reluctant, therefore to enter into an agreement which could jeopardize the manning
of their crews with the best available seamen, so necessary to maintain the high
standard of service, furthermore, the employees under consideration are only a
minority of the total ship's personnel. such an arrangement is not in effect in any
other department in the British Columbia Coast Steamship Service or the Canadian
National Steamships, new help in those departments being hired freely by the
companies.
33. Giving the union responsibility for the selection of
employees, when in the past it has not borne that responsibility well, is not the
only reason why this request for union security should be rejected. The question
of union socurity, whether it be concerned with compulsory membership or
compulsory payment of dues, is one which is inseparable from the whole question of
individual freedom. The right of the worker to choose his own bargaining agent on
a majority basis is one which the companies do not dispute, but they do feel that
they have a responsibility also to the minority group who, for whatever reason,
ba it oconomic, political or of conscience, do not wish to become members of or
contribute to the support of the current bargaining agent. The rights of these
individuals must be protected against the coercion and intimidation of the majority
 2.
seeing, thence overnight steaming- to Seymour Narrows
and adjacent waters,  returning to Vancouver by afternoon of October 1st, with possible Hdwe Sound cruise
en route Vancouver morning of October 1st.
The "Princess Patricia" of Canadian registry is
registered at Victoria,  B;C., and under her present
licence must include a U.S. port of call for registration purposes during her cruise.    The  "Patricia's"
crew is Canadian, and the vessel meets  international    '
safety standards for new ships developed in 1960 and
meets the 1966 fire safety requirements. A
We will be pleased to hear from you should there be
any information desired in connection with our ship
and service, and will be pleased to learn of your
arrangements  for the fall^ should you desire to travel
on the "Patricia" to Skagway and return.    At the present

to have Mrs. Werner and yourself on board ship as our

INCREASE IN WF-flKTY T.Ti^yfi
25. ^he employees request that they be allowed weekly leave on
the basis of eight days in each month, totalling 96 days a year. At the present
time they receive leave on the basis of one day for every five days worked,
totalling 58§- days each year.
26. Effective September 1st, 1947, these employees wero allowed
leave on the present basis, whereas previously they were only allowed one day's
leave for every six days worked, totalling 50 days par year. In the settlement the
increase in weekly leave was an important factor in determining the rates of pay,
^ho question of weokly leave must be considered together with rates of pay inasmuch
as both items involve the companies in direct compensation. The reduction of weekly
hours in a service which has to operate continuously seven days a week and 365
days a year is not comparable with a reduction of hours in an industrial establishment where the plant can be closed down and an effort can be made to regain lost
production during the other days of the week. In a transportation industry, such
as a steamship operation, employees on leave must normally be replaced, and in
most cases there is no possibility of increased productivity on the remaining days
offsetting the cost of such replacement.
27. By long established practice all unlicensed personnel in
the deck and engineroom departments are allowed two fifteen-minute relief periods
a day during which they are on full pay but perform no workj in fact, therefore,
they only work forty-two hours a week. Furthermore, watchkeeping personnel in the
dock department (quartermasters and lookoutmen) receive one-half hour relief
during each watch and so work actually only seven hours per day or forty hours per
week. The licensed personnel do not receive any such relief but stand their full
four-hour watches and take coffee or tea while on duty,
28. In view of these concessions, and as conditions have not
materially changed since the extra leave was granted effective September 1st, 19A7,
\JL   and as no reason has been advanced to justify additional leave, this request is
■ not warranted,

RATES OF PAY (continued)
It is extremely important, beoause of the high operating costs already obtaining
in coastal shipping, which will be dealt with later in this brief, to avoid
disturbing these differentials. It can readily be«a seen that the increases
requested would upset the entire wage structure of these services.
11. It will be of interest to the Board to know that on May 1,
1950 the Masters and Deck Officers, also the Engineer Officers in the British
Columbia Coast Steamship Service, Canadian National Steamship Company and the Union
Steamships Limited, concluded agreements without a general wage increase, and on
January 31st, 1950, all the unlicensed deck and engineroom personnel employed on
vessels operated by the Frank Waterhouse and Company of Canada Limited signed
an agreement with the Canadian Seafarers' association which made no change in
wages or working conditions,
12. In view of the large increases already granted, the latest
of which was effective January 1, 194-9, and of the circumstances set out above,
it is respectfully submitted that our employees have been favourably treated and
that no reason has been advanced to justify an upward revision in wages at this
time.
IL1TE OF OVERTIME PAY
13. The present rate of overtime pay at 850 per hour was
made effective on September 1st, 1947. The rate of overtime for the unlicensed

Dear Mr. Crocker?    .•        •
Thanks very much for your letter of April 9th and
advice of your recent return from-the Arizona State,
Samboree'.
The recent development,of the cancellation of the a'
"Prince George; n the Canadian National Alaska cruise
ship, this year, by reason of a fire on board ship
and the loss in.revenue that cancelled sailings
would entail, has caused our picture to change
drastically for the "Princess Patricia'- cruises in
1976.
As we have been Ssked to handle various groups protected on the "Prince George," the September 28th
sailing has become quite heavily booked.  At this
writing we are still determining what space remains
on this sailing, and will be in touch with you shortly
concerning same. aa
Rates for 1975 were increased by 30%,  and you will
find that other cruise services have been-increased
similarly.
Yours very truly, .
Manager, B.C.C.S.S.

73. The Companies are sympathetic with the
desire of the employees to spend as much time as possible
with their families. However conditions in Coastal steamship service in this regard have not changed since the
present engineers chose to go to sea and conditions in
coastal service are better in this regard than in deep
sea service. The employees are pursuing simultaneously
the goals of increased remuneration and increased leisure
at a time when their compensation is already at the highest level ever established and the coastal steamship
services are operating at a loss or at the best with
practically no prospect of securing any net earnings.
74. On behalf of the employees it has been
argued that the financial position of the Companies has
no bearing on the consideration of these demands, in that
they represent only an adjustment of an alleged injustice
for a small group of employees. It has been clearly
demonstrated that the allegation of injustice in regard
to the wage rates of these employees is without foundation and that their wage rates and working conditions
are very closely interwoven with those of all other
employees in coastal steamship service. It has furthermore been shown that the introduction of special

D. SUBSISTENCE ALLOWANCE.
5o". The arguments advanced by the employees'
representatives in this regard assumed that the question
of compensating employees for loss of subsistence was
involved. Actually, as was made clear in the original
statement of The Canadian Pacific Railway, subsistence
is available on board as galley service has to be maintained at all times for men not at their home port and
it is as a special concession that men receive compensation in lieu of meals not taken when living at home.
E. ORAL EVIDENCE.
59. The employees presented a considerable
amount of oral evidence bearing generally on the qualifications of marine engineers, their length of service,
the nature of their duties, the accommodation furnished
them on board ship, the increased traffic carried by the
ships and the free time afforded them to be at home.
60. In regard to qualifications, attached
hereto as Companies' Exhibit, No. 4 are the present
qualifications for first, second, third and fourth class
certificates (steam) as specified by the Department of
Transport. These were last reissued in 1940 and have

Dear Mr. Goldsmitht
Thank you kindly fear your letter of April 9th concerning the evening dance cruise by the Young Alumni
Club, August 16th on board the "Princess of    .
Vancouver."
With regard to the two questions mentioned, meal service is provided en route Vancouver-Nanaimo and is
under the direction of the Chief Steward. We usually
allow half an hour for pre-dinner docktails, then the
Chief Steward will direct your group down to the Cafeteria for dinner.
The "Princess of Vancouver" arrives from Nanaimo at
6i30 p.m. local city time, and you will be able to go
on board ship as soon as passengers have disembarked.
Payment is required to be made to the Wharf Ticket
Agent at Pier A-3, at least one day in advance of the
excursion. If additional passengers travel we will
bill you for the extra number, or if less passengers
travel than paid for, we will arrange refund upon advice from the Purser of actual numbers travelling.

to $243.21, without allowance for subsistence.
45. If the comparison is made with a sawmill
engineer living at home the proper comparison would be
between the monthly equivalent rate of #238.33 and the
range of rates plus subsistence allowance for the marine
second engineers of from #234.21 to ^269.21.
46. It is submitted therefore that the evidence
presented does not show that the marine engineer is in
an unfavourable position.
47. It might further be pointed out that the
domestic mill price for lumber has increased substantially

in any future changes regarding wages or working conditions made generally effective for railway employees.
In the circumstances it is submitted the significant
wage comparison is within the transportation industry
and not with occupations in entirely different industries
whose wage structures may have been developed in the
context of entirely diifcrent conditions of employment.
16. Frequent reference has been made by the
employees to rates of pay for machinists and a natural
comparison to determine whether or not there has been
discrimination would be with changes in wage rates of
mechanics in the locomotive and car department, in which
group machinists are included.
17. In 1920 mechanics in railway service received 85 cents per hour.  In 1921 in the general wage
reductions made necessary by the severe decline in business
and the fall in the cost of living their wages were reduced
by 8 cents per hour and in 1922 by a further 7 cents per
hour, or a total of 15 cents per hour. This compares with
the one reduction for marine engineers of ^15.00 per
month, equivalent to 7.2 cents per hour. During the same
period carmen were reduced from 80 cents to 63 cents or
17 cents per hour.

overtime service was queried concerning your Order

among the citizens of the country. The proposal would
defeat the policy adopted by the elected representatives
of the people and would presumably pass back such
expenses into prices, and on to the self-employed. The
absurdities inherent in such a proposal will be readily
apparent.
28. The comparisons made between the hourly
rates of pay of these engineers and other classifications
are all based on the assumption that no allowance should
be made for the value of board and lodging provided free
as part of the conditions of employment of engineers.
It is respectfully submitted that such a contention is
untenable and that the comparisons made on this basis are
misleading.
29. Workers in logging camps whose wages do
not included subsistence are required to pay #1.50 per
day for board and lodging. If they remain in camp for
the week-end this represents #10.50 per week, or, based
on a 40-hour week, 26 cents per hour. Even if they are
able to go home for the week-end it represents $7.50 per
week or approximately 19 cents per hour.
30. On the Railways extra gang labourers who
are boarded by the Railway Companies have #7.00 per week

Dear Miss Ayrissj
We have received from Mr. B.D. Margetts, your letter
of March 25th written to himr; concerning our Alaska
cruises, and am pleased to enclose brochure indicating
our 1975 cruise programme.
"■•fliile in general we do not have an employee reduced
basis for members of CP  Air for advance reservations
on our cruises, commencing this year we will accord
any CP employee., Including CP Air, a 30%.reduction off
minimum passage fare, or the minimum passage portion
of any deluxe accommodation, provided they are prepared to waitlist their names for accommodation up to
72 hours prior to any specific sailing date. Cancellations occur from time to time, also certain rooms become available from group tour parties, and on this
basis we would certainly be happy to accommodate you
on any sailing throughout the season that you might
be interested in. For example, during the shoulder
periods. May 31st, June 3th and September 4th, there
will be a reduction of $142.50 from the berth rates
shown in the brochure, and at other periods of the
year, $150.00.
We appreciate your interest in the "Princess Patricia,"

24. As pointed out previously the machinists
received between 1926 and 1929 wage increases of 9 cents
per hour offsetting the larger reductions made from the
peak rates of 1920, so the comparison with 1929 is the
fairer one.
25. As regards passenger engineers, their
earnings are dependent largely on mileage made. During
1945i when the manpower shortage in railway service was
still acute, men ware able to make abnormally high
mileage and so receive earnings very much in excess of
normal.
26. The argument as to real wages of marine
engineers lagging behind those in other industries is
based on comparisons with the same general indices of
wage rates and is without merit for the same reasons
as outlined above,
27. The Companies presume they are not
intended to take seriously an argument the apparent
import of which is that wages should be increased to
offset increases in income taxes or in other words
that the employer should pay the income tax of his
employees. The purpose of income taxes is to aid in
apportioning the expenses of government equitably

17. It is acknowledged that an essential part of the maintenance of efficient service is the payment of fair and reasonable ^wages to
those engaged in it.     te oelieve that over the years we have met these
requirements.    But the present requests of the employees go so far
beyond the area of fairness and reason that the financial returns to
the services provided by these Companies,   and the burdens that would be
laid on tftem by increases of the size of those requested,  become matters
of great importance in this cesp.

Many thanks for your letter of April 2nd.
Under separate cover we have arranged to supply
you with Immigration questionnaire forma, and I
have drawn to the attention of our two reservation
experts the information given in your letter concerning telex contact.
Certainly yes, respecting the changes that can be
made in rooming lists, and we will arrange blank
tickets to be issued in advance, preparatory to
insertion of names, when received from your office.
Imagine you have heard the unfortunate news of the
"Prince George's" withdrawal from service this year,
due to the fire damage last week. We are picking
up considerable additional business as a result of
the cancellation, and can imagine that 1976 will be
a busy year. We will therefore be pleased to receive your 1976 plans when formulated, and trust that
we may be favoired with your patronage again in that

Yours very truly.

STATE&LSNT SUBMITTED ON BEHALF CF THE
BRITISH COLUMBIA COAST STEAMSHIP SERVICE, CANADIAN PACIFIC RAILWAY COMPANY,
THE CANADIAN NATIONAL STEAMSHIP COMPANY
 & THE UNION STEAMSHIPS LIMITED	
HISTORY OF THE DISPUTE
1. The dispute which has resulted in the appointment of
your honourable Board arises from proposals for a supplemental agreement submitted by the Seafarers' International Union of North America on behalf of the
unlicensed personnel employed in the deck and engineroom departments of the
British Columbia Coast Steamship Service, the Canadian Pacific Railway Company the
Canadian National Steamship Company and the Union Steamships Limited, and personnel
of the Stewards' Department of the Union Steamships Limited.
2. These proposals were presented to the operators on January
5th, 1950, as per copies attached. Joint meetings of the operators wore
held with the representatives of the employees on tho 5th, 12th and 17th of
January, and March 17th, 1950, whan the proposals wore fully discussed but no
agreement reached. As a result the employees requested the services of a
Conciliation Officer and a meeting was held with him on April 25th, As it was not
possiblo at this mooting to reach any common ground of agreement the Conciliation
Officer was foroed to recommend tho appointment of the present Board.
3. The Wartime Labour Relations Board (National) formally
certified the Seafarers' International Union as bargaining representatives of the
unlicensed personnel in the deck and engineroom departments of the British Columbia
Coast Steamship Service on June 20th, 19A5.
A. During the same period the Seafarers' International
Union was certified as bargaining ropresantatives for the unlicensed personnel
in tho deck and engineroom departments of the Canadian National Steamship Company
and was recognized by the Union Steamships Limited as representing their unlicensed
personnel.

(f)      In oral evidence comparison was made of
rates of marine engineers with rates in the lumber
industry ashore.
5. The evidence adduced as to discriminatory
wage changes is based entirely on a comparison of the rates
of pay of these engineers with general indices of wage
rates for certain main groups of industries.  In the
opinion of the Companies a comparison of the index covering the limited and homogeneous group of marine engineers
with the general average wage rate index has no validity
as a basis for a charge of discrimination.
6. The indices of wage rates compiled by the
Department of Labour cover a very large number of different positions for many different employers. These indices
average out many conflicting movements in individual wage
rates and do not represent the history of wage movements
in any particular defined classification. The indices
showing average increases in wages of employees in a
variety of employments are not a reliable basis upon which
to judge the wages of a small individual class in a particular employment.  In recent years there has been a
tendency for increases in wage rates to be achieved more

represents wage rate changes of the "average Canadian
employee". Such an inference is entirely incorrect as
the resultant index bears no relation whatsoever to
the wage rate changes of any individual employee or
employee classification.
11. The use of the year 1922 as a base year
has no particular justification apart from the fact as
stated by the employees that the cost of living at that
time was approximately the same as 1945.  It is not
established that the relationship between different
wage rates in 1922 was one to be perpetuated and in
fact the Companies contend the marine engineers were
then in a favourable position in relation to many other
classes of railway employees owing to their not receiving any second reduction in wage rates in the year 1922
as was made effective for such other classifications.
12. In regard to the water transportation
index this is based on money wage payments without allowance for the value of board and subsistence.  It deals
with a large group of unlicensed personnel whose money
rates have in the past been relatively low.  The index
is therefore particularly sensitive to increases in
wages obtained by such unlicensed personnel.

only by the changes in wares and working conditions since the date of the
last agreement between these parties» June 1st, 1955.
49. The employees' submission has failed to show cause for any wage
increase on the basis of the material they have chosen as relevant to this
dispute. Their historical argument is dependent upon the choice of a base
year that distorts the true development of the wages of these employees,
both in comparison with trends of average wages and of cost of living.
The direct wage comparisons they have made have been with rates much higher
than the average and earned by employees performing work in no way comparable
with the work of the Karine Engineer. Their wage comparisons have fai led to
take into account the value of the free board and room supplied aboard
ship. Finally, they have not dealt with the wage situation during the only
period relevant to this dispute, the period since June 1st, 1955.
50. On the other hand, Managements' initial statement showed that since
that date there have been no changes in working conditions that could
justify a wage increase at this time. It showed that the increase in cost
of living since that date is more than compensated for by the 5 percent
wage increase offered. *nd it showed that a valuable addition to the
welfare of these employees has been offered in the Employee Benefit Flan
of the Canadian Railways.
51. Finally, this offer has been made to employees engaged in an enterprise
that has suffered a deficit in two of the last five years, will suffer another
deficit this year (1957) and, in the other two cf the five years, earned
returns on investment of only 1.0 percent and 1.7 percent respectively.

44. The wage rates in Table IV are not at all representative, therefore,
and appear to be only selections from the Onion agreements which are their
source.
45. Because we do not know what wage rate the employees might have
constructed for 1946, we cannot restate Table IV on that base year. But it is
apparent that the 19 percent increase of 1947, eliminated from the index
number calculations, if included, would produce the same favourable result
as was shown in the restatement of Table I.
46. In commenting on Table V, dealing with the real wages of Marine
Engineers, we are subject to the same limitation as in the other tables, lie
do not know what averace wage might have been constructed for the years prior
to 1947. However, again there is no doubt that the conclusion drawn from
this table depends upon removing the effect of the wage increase and reduction
in hours of 1947 from the calculations, by selecting that year as the base year.
46a. To demonstrate further the effect of the selection of 1947 as the base
year, Table V is restated on a 1946 base. To do so, it is necessary to be
specific abour Ilarine Engineers' wage rates. Since we do not know the
construction of the average used in the pamphlet, we have used the weighted
average wage rate of Fourth Engineers in 8.C.C. 3.S. The wage history of the
Fourth Engineer is typical of Marine Engineers' wages. From the restatement
of Table V, on the 1946 base and using actual wage rates, it will be seen
that Marine Engineers have gained substantially in real wages during the past
eleven years and their wages have moved ahead a little faster than the
average weekly wage in manufacturing.

ahead faster than the general average, leaving no argument for a wage
increase based on the comparative movement of these index numbers.
36. Table II is a restatement of Table I and Table III merely confirms
that different results may be obtained by selection of a different base
year, although in this instance, the results are closely similar because
of the selection of 1921 as the base.
WAGES Al-fl PRICES
37. The remainder of the pamphlet deals with direct wage comparisons
and with the movement of the Consumer Price Index. Some general comments
are again necessary before re-emphasizing the position of the Companies.
38. On Page 1, it is said that "increases of 35$ per hour and mere,
ju         havo been numerous" in the past two years. Increases of this omcunt may
have been more numerous than previously, but they have been by no means
common. In an analysis of 228 collective agreements negotiated during
the first six months of 1957, tho Department of Labour found that in 9C%
of the one-year agreements, wage increases were in the range of 5$ to
15$ an hour, nmong the longer term agreements wage increases were
predominately in the 5$ to 15$ an hour range for the first year with
deferred increases in the same range for subsequent years.  (Labour
Gazette, October 1957, Face 1152).
39. Turning back a year, an analysis of 545 agreements negotiated for
the period October 1, 1955, to October 1, 1956, indicates that wage
increases of 5$ to 9.9$ an hour predominated in one-year agreements. For
lonaer term agreements, first year increases of 5$ to 9.9$ an hour were
most common, with increases in subsequent years generally below 15$. In
^       fact, a substantial number of contracts provided no further increase in
the second year (Labour Gazette, March 1957, Fage 337).

26. Nowhere is the construction of this aggregate salary explained.
What 27 positions were chosen and why that particular group? If a figure
had to be constructed, why was it an earnings figure rather than a wage
rate figure, when the only actual wage comparisons made are with waae rates?
The first column of Table IV shows what is called an hourly wage rate for
Marine Shgineers. Is this figure derived from the aggregate salary whose
movement is shown by index numbers in Tables I, II and III?  Why, when in
the final analysis the claim for an increase is based on the wage rate of a
Fourth Engineer, was not the wage rate of a Fourth used throughout?
27. Clarification of this average rate is important to the argument
but what is of greater importance is the choice of the base year from which
all calculations but one in the pamphlet are made.
28. On page 2, 1947 is arbitrarily chosen as the base year on the
grounds that in that year a wage increase and a reduction in hours were
negotiated which established parity between Marine Engineers and the general
average wage. Yet, the first two columns of Table IV show, if the figures
are correct, that the Marine Engineers' wages were higher than the
Machinists by 7,7 cents. This is a substantial difference and means a
monthly amount of $16.02 if the calculation is made on the basis of the
48-hour week in effect during the first half of 1947 and $14.66 cents on the
44-hour week that went into effect on July 1st of that year.
29. If parity were the sole objective, on the basis of Table IV
1948 would have been a better choice of base year, for the table shows a
disparity that year of only one cent between the Engineer and Machinist.
30. It should be noted that the conclusions drawn from Tables I, II, IV
and V and the chart on Page 4 all depend upon the selection of 1947 as the
base year for, by its use, the effect of the wage increase and reduction
in hours in 1947 is eliminated from all subsequent calculations.

they have been supplemental to the power and the tonnage which have basically
determined the classification of the ship for the Engineer.
68. For the Deck Officers the route plied by the vessel has played an
important role in ship's classification and wage determination. The number
of ports of call and the hazards of the voyage, in addition to the size and
power of the vessel, have played their part in determination of classes and
iifages paid.
69. To revert now to a strict, Power-Tonnage basis would only tend
to submerge these many differences which have found reflection in the wage
ra^-es and create a situation in which they may again become the basis for
wage increases based on individual differences in ships and routes.
70. */e have said that the proposed classification would make no
material change in the presentrela-'-ionships among the ships of these
Companies. The Board may reasonably reject, therefore, this proposal in
favour of the present method of classification, which has been accepted for
many years by both groups and which relies for its effectiveness on
collective bargaining in the light of the practical realities of day-to-day
fleet operation.
WAGES
71.       In the manner of its original presentation, the employees* request
for wage increases appears complicated and obscure, deduced to its simple
essentials, however, it is based on a request for a wage rate of $410.00
per month for the Fourth Engineer and Third Officer on a vessel of the
fourth class, with a fixed system of horizontal differentials between classes,
vertical differentials between positions within a class and a relationship
between Deck Officers and Engineer Officers, to determine the wages of all
A other employees represented before your Joard.

PARITY WITH SHORE-BASED KA£EINISTS.
15.,      The N.A.M.E, argument in support of these large increases starts
with the assertion of parity between the Fourth Engineer and a shipyard
machinist or fitter,  followed by a dissertation on index movements of
wages and cost of living published in a pamphlet "The 1957 Wage Situation",!
!6i>      Cn page 2 of its statement, the N.A.M.E, says,  "A qualified
Marine Engineer is a journeyman fitter.    A candidate for a Fourth
Engineer's ticket must have served an engineer fitters apprenticeship",
and later,  "Tae minimum qualifications for engineers are therefore
equivalent to those of shore-based engineer fitters."   This, of course,
is simply not so.    Of a total of 70 qualified IsArine Engineers at present
in the employ of B.C.C.S.S, only 45 have served a machinist apprenticeship
and a study of the qualifications for a Fourth Encineer will show no such
minimum requirement.
17B     While it may be true that from time to time these Companies
have sought Engineer candidates from among shore-based machinists, they
are not restricted to those employed in shipyards and, hence, are not
required to meet the shipyard rate of $410,00.    If the Companies seek
machinists to qualify as engineers, the entire British Columbia market
for machinists is available to them, and it has been shown that an
average wage rate of $322   would ie sufficient to attract machinists

order to minimise the development of breakdowns. An exacting
program of maintenance will be necessary and will require Engineers
able and vailing to sustain the program,,
As there is no precedent for the amount, and type of equipment
npr.Ftgndarrb pf engineering on the coast neither is there precedent
for a wage scale payable to the Engineers who serve nn the vessel.
As we have pointed out the "PRINCESS CF VANCOUVER" is an
extraordinary ship from an Engineers point of view and deserves
extraordinary consideration for the Engineers and more so than for
any other department, in fact, it is in the engine-room only that
any new conditions and techniques have been introduced.
Though the Black Ball Ferries "KAHLOKE" AND "CHINOOK" have four
Diesel units of near,,, sjrailar horseppwer, they do not have anything
like the operating problems or equipment of the "PRINCESS OF VANCOUVER",
10. These many reasons for individual adjustments of wage rates to
meet changes in equipment and operations make it impossible to support
a fixed system of differentials as proposed by the employees. Furthermore,
some of the alterations for which wage changes would be implied in this
classification have no bearing on the duties of the employees and should,
therefore, not be reflected in wage rate changese
llo  Ultimately, two ships of the same class, in identical service,
requiring the same duties of their Engineers, for which the same wages
are paid, could have this relationship destroyed simply by an alteration
to the superstructure of one of them, which would increase the gross
tonnage and thus raise it to a higher power-tonnage classification.
No change in the duties or responsibilities of Engineers would be involved,
but a higher ware rate would be required. Two men, therefore, doing
identical work under similar conditions on different vessels would not be
paid equally for equal work.
12.  Any fixed system of power-tonnage classification, therefore, would
be impracticable and bear no relationship to the realities of coastal
fleet operation,  xhis is confirmed by the very nature of the request

CLASSIFICATION OF V&>JEL3
Employees' Proposal
(a) All vessels shall be classified according to their lower-Tonnage for
the purpose of this Agreement.
(b) tower-Tonnage shall be defined as meaning a co-efficient arrived at by
adding together the gross tonnage and the brake horse power of the vessels.
On any vessel having a deck partially enclosed which is used for the carriage
of cargo or automobiles which is not included in the vessel's registered
gross tonnage, such deck shall be ad led to the registered ^ross tonnage for
the purpose of this clause.
(c) Classification of vessels shall be as follows:
Class No. One 0 to 500
Class No. two 501 to 1,000
Class No. 'Jhree 1,001 to 2,000
Class No. Four 2,001 to 4,000
Class No. Five 4,001 to 6,000
Class No. Six 6,001 to 12,000
Class No. Seven 12,001 to 20,000
Class No. Sight      over 20,001
66. hefore discussing its objections to a fixed form of classification
of vessels, management would like to point out '••hat the proposed classification does not materially change the present- relationship of these ships
to each other.  It is not, therefore, to the classification itself that
there is objection but to the method by which it would be reached.
67. As a matter of interest, the present classification has been
developed over +he years  on a kind of rower-Tonnage basis in that the bigger,
more powerful ships are found in the higher classes; but with additional
factors being considered from tine to time at the request of the employees.
For example, on a ship with more rather than less cabins, the Engineer
commands a higher rate because of the greater responsibility for plumbing.
New and more complicated mechanical means of refrigeration, air conditioning,
fire protection, and vater purification have each, in their time, raised
the classification of the ship or the Engineers' wage rates, or both] and

Dear Mr.  Petsrar,
This will acknowledge receipt ©f your letter dated
April 3rd in this office yesterday afternoon.
regret to read of the apparent difficulty you
have encountered in attesting to make reservations
on our Alaska cruise ship, the "?rinceas Patricia.**
An Investigation into the circumstances  indicated
in your letter, revealed that at no time have we.r«"*'' ■
calved a telex directly from Canadian pacific Airlines
concerning your Alaska booking.     It has been, and
presume still is, the practice between raain line cr
Air offices to cofflfsunicate with their o%m offices
respecting additional services, and can only assume
that CP Air*s Montreal reepast was directed to their
Vancouver! office for telephoning to this office.
Depending on the nature of the request made on our
reservation telephones,  ws would either advise the
inquirer of the present availability of space,  or
attsappt to reserve accommodation as near to the request as possible,  if saws was ■* direct inquiry for
a reservation.
Aa you will appreciate,  our existence depends upon
the filling to capacity of the "Princess Patricia,"
and our Reservation clerks are inclined towards waking

for the service required. The imposition of a penalty rate would tend to
curtail the ability of the Companies to maintain any service to smaller
communities and place an unreasonable burden on their already strained
financial resources.
56.       For the foregoing reasons, a penalty payment for overtime work
is without justification in coastal shipping and should be rejected.
ANNUAL VACATIONS;
Current Agreements
(a) Employees \\dth less than fifteen years' continuous or accumulative
service, after twelve (12) months' accumulative or continuous service,
vdll thereafter be allowed annual vacation on the  basis of two (2) weeks'
leavo :ith pay for each twelve (12) months' continuous service. For the
remaining months of the calendar year in which the firs*- twelve (12) months1
accumulative or continuous service ends, one day's vacation with pay will
be allowed for each month worked.
(b) Employees not in continuous employment after twelve (12) months'
accumulative service, shall be allowed annual vacation on the basis of one
(1) day's 1-2ave with pay for each accumulative month's service during the
calendar year.
(c) Employees after fifteen (15) years' accumulative or continuous service
shall be allowed annual vacation on tie basis of three (3) weeks' leave with
pay for every twelve (12) months' service. After qualifying for the three
weeks' annual vacation, employees not in continuous employment shall be
allowed one aid three-quarters (If) days' leave for each month's service.
(d) The first twelve (12) months worked, whether accumulative or continuous,
is a qualifying period on which no annual vacation is allowed.
Employees' Proposal
(a) Officers with less than ten (10) years' continuous or accumulative
service shall be granted annual vacation on the basis of two v/eeks' leave
xtfith pay for each twelve (12) months' continuous service.
(b) Engineer Officers not in continuous service shall be granted annual
vacation on the basis of four (4%)  percent of gross earnings.
(c) Engineer Officers after ten (10) years' continuous or accumulative
service shall be granted annual vacation on the basis of three (3) weeks'
leave with pay for each year of service. After qualifying for the three

44. Because of the speed and frequency of air service, during
the past ten years the number of passengers carried by the vessels of
this Company has declined from 479,000 to 288,000,  down 40 percent.
At the same time,   the number of passengers carried by Trans-Canada Air
Lines has surged from 94,000 to 237,000 for a gain of 151 percent.
45. It should be noted that this marked change in the Victoria-
Vancouver traffic pattern from ship to ^ircr^ft has taken place at a
time when  the total passenger business between  the two cities has
itself declined.
46. Projection of this trend on the oasis of the data shown in
the table indicates that oefore another year has passed Trans-Canada
Air Lines will have suro^ssed  3ritish Columbia Coast Steamship Service
as a passenger carrier on this route.
47. Competition and declining revenues of such severity make it
impossible to consider wa^e increases of the size demanded here and le«ve
little hope of recovering the additional cost of the offer already made
to these employees.
48. This is perhaps the most important single consideration before
your 3oard.    The low revenues of recent yeTs,   the probability of a deficit
in the current year and the rapidly declining prospects of obtaining
sufficient traffic  to meet increased costs in the months ahead should be
borne constantly in mind as we now discuss  the matters remaining in dispute.

We do not attempt to belittle the machinery of the "Princess Kathleen"
in any way but the development of engineering techniques in present
day design merits special consideration.
However speaking strictly from a power point of view the
Department of Transport's List cf Shipping shows that the "Princess
Kathleen" develops 12,250 E.P. and the s.s. "Princess of Nanaimo"
on the trial run was opened up to slightly over 8,000 H.P. and then
closed in. The indication is that this ship has considerably more
than 8,CC0 H.P. engines and is probably close enough to the power
of the "Princess Kathleen" to justify an equal wage rate even based
on a Horsepower basis. The machinery does push a much heavier vessel
than the "Princess Kathleen" at 21 knots*
However I would again draw to your attention the modern design
of boilers and machinery of the "Princess of Nanaimo" involving the
use of high pressure superheated steam.
The Pametrada turbines of the new vessel have proved to require
very close supervision to present seizure.
This vessel has only one oiler on watch and as this above
mentioned difficulty keeps the watchkeeping engineer tied to the
main engines and not available for work in other parts of the ship
it places a severe responsibility on the Chief and Second engineers.
The amount of auxiliary equipment is distributed on every deck
and includes many features that are novel to the Coast.
There are completely equipped all electric galleys, balanced
draught which entails induced draught fans, a closed feed water
system and many other features.
This association considers that of all the positions on the
ship the responsibilities of the Chief and Second Engineer have
increased out of all proportion to any other position of vessels
formerly on this Nanaimo run.
We notice that the Company concedes that the responsibilities
involved with this new ship are so great as to warrant paying the
faster and Chief Officer the same wage rate as the highest paid ship
in the fleet.
Yet the two Engineer Officers whose responsibilities and
efforts merit the greatest consideration are relegated to the third
highest wage rate for Engineers.
We cannot understand this discrimination nor will this
Association recognize nor accept a wage scale for the Engineers
of "Princess of Nanaimo" that is in any way below that of the
"Princess Kathleen".
Therefore we respectfully request, Mr. Bailey, that you give
this matter further study and weigh the value of the Engineer
Officers by the responsibilities involved in maintaining the

33. The total cost of fuel oil iv  1950 was ^921,800 while in
1956 it was $1,311,900, an increase of "390,100 or 42 percent.
34. Inasmuch as the employees concerned sleep and eat on board
their vessels, the Companies have absorbed considerable extra expense
because of the higher cost of food as well as similar increases in the
cost of such items as blankets, sheets, towels and laundry and the
labour to render these services,
35. In order to meet the successive increases in wage costs and
the increases that have taken place in the cost of fuel and supplies,
fares for passengers and automobiles and freight rates have been raised.
This is reflected in the increase in gross revenue. However, fares and
freight rates have now reached the point where no increase in revenue
can be anticipated from further increases in prices.
36. Experience has shown that the keen competition that is being
faced in Doth freight rates and passenger fares has made it difficult to
pass on any increased cost.
37. The effects of competition for freight can be seen  in Ae
following taole, which shows the total tons of cargo carried by British
Colubmia Coast Steamship Service from 1950 to 1956, with the division
among the three types of carriers during that period.

machinist". Management's submission showed that the offer cf a five percent
increase in wage rate, together with the cost of the benefit plan, more
than met the wage rate of the average machinist, when the value of room and
meals is considered, although it does not meet the high shipyard and other
rates selected for comparison by the employees.
64. When comparison is made with casual, part-time workers, such as
longshoremen (Page 14), annual earnings become important, rather than wage
rates. The annual earnings of a Third Officer in 1956 averaged $4,097, while
of
that a coastwise longshoreman was $3,846. In 1957 the longshoremen earned
$3,669. while the Third Officers' earnings remained unchanged. In other words,
the stability of employment enjoyed by the Deck Officers of these Companies
placed them in a more advantageous position in relation to longshoremen in
1957 over 1956, in spite of the large wage increase granted longshoremen on
July 1st.
65. In summary, the addition of five percent to the existing wage scale,
together with coverage under the railway employee benefit plan, will adequately
compensate these employees for their responsibilities and for the duties they
perform and will keep then abreast, even move them ahead of the increase in
the cost of living since the last wage settlement on June 1st, 1955.
66. By any criterion, this is a generous offer in an industry that is
facing a deficit this year (1957), incurred deficits in two of the previous
four years, and even in its best years enjoys only marginal net earnings; and
is generous at a time when traffic prospects on the British Columbia coast
leave little or no hope of recovering the increased cost entailed by the offer.
FSNALTY CVERTIEE. VAChTICNS AND HCLI3AYS
67. Nothing need be added to what has already been said in these
matters. Present arrangements in all three areas range from adequate to
generous, and are in keeping with general practice in coastal shipping in
British Columbia. In none of these benefits are these employees in a

58. Much was said about responsibility, qualifications and
training of Deck Officers and some of the duties and areas of required
knowledge were listed in the brief. Management does not deny that these
are qualified, skilled employees, whose training, both on and off the
job, fit them to discharge the responsibilities of Canadian Pacific an*
Canadian Rational service. It should be noted, however, that the
responsible officer aboard ship is the Master and the qualifications
discussed in the C.M.S.G. brief are the requirements for a Master's
Certificate of Competency. It is true that the Companies require a
First Officer to have a Master's Certificate and it is true that the
other Beck Officers acquire the appropriate certificates, qualifying
themselves for promotion through the recognised stages to a ship's
Master. 3ut the Companies contend that the existing differentials
between positions adequately compensate these employees for the added
qualifications they acquire and the additional responsibilities they
assume during the progress of their careers. A "percentage" wage
increase would not disturb the existing relationship.
59. On Page 3 of their brief the Guild discusses wage trends
since 1934 in the United States. Management has already pointed out

42. Turning to Table IV the wage rates shown therein may well be
questioned.   As already indicated, we have been unable to substantiate
the Marine Engineers' rates, and data available from the Department of
Labour raise doubts about the representative nature of the tradesmen's rates.
43. The 1956 edition of "Wage Rates and Hours of Labour", issued by the
Federal Department cf Labour, shows that the average rate for machinists
in B.C. Shipbuilding was in that year $2.03 and the predominate range $2.00
to $2.05 (the range within which 80% of the workers fall).    The average was
17$ below the rate shown in Table IV and, in fact, was 2$ below the Marine
Engineers' wage for that year.    The Department cf Labour average for
bcilerraakers was also $2.03 and the predominate range $2.00 to $2.C5, while
the rate shown in the table is $2.20.    The average for shipbuilding
electricians was $2.10 as compared with $2.61 in the table.   The Department
of Labour reports no rate for shipbuilding plumbers, but the 1956 B.C.
shipbuilding rate for pipefitters was $2.00.   The table shows a rate for
plumbers of $2.55.    « check of the 1956 Vancouver wage rates for building
tradesmen, who have the highest rates, showed $2.42 for electricians, 39$
below the electricians' rate shown in the table.    For building construction
plumbers the rate of $2.55 was the sane as the rate shown for plumbers in th«
table.

35. Since 1946, therefore, the wages of these employees have moved
ahead faster than the general average, leaving no argument for a wage
increase based on the comparative movement of these index numbers.
36. Table II is a restatement of Table I and Table III merely confirms
that different results may be obtained by selection of a different base
year, although in this instance, the results are closely similar because
of tho selection cf 1921 as the base.
WAC5S Ai-Q PRICES
37. The remainder of the pamphlet deals with direct wage comparisons
and with the movement cf the Consumer Price Index. Some general comments
are again necessary before re-emphasizing the position of the Companies.
38. On Page 1, it is said that "increases of 35$ per hour and mere,
have been numerous" in the past two years. Increases of this amount may
have been more numerous than previously, but they have been by no means
common. In an analysis of 228 collective agreements negotiated during
the first six months of 1957, the Department of Labour found that in 90%
of the one-year agreements, wage increases were in the range of 5$ to
15$ an hour. Among the longer term agreements wage increases were
predominately in the 5$ to 15$ an hour range for the first year with
deferred increases in the same range for subsequent years. (Labour
Gazette, October 1957, Face 1152).
39. Turning back a year, an analysis of 545 agreements negotiated for
the period October 1, 1955, to October 1, 1956, indicates that wage
increases of 5$ to 9.9$ an hour predominated in one-year agreements. For
longer term agreements, first year increases of 5$ to 9.9$. an hour were
most common, with increases in subsequent years generally below 15$. In
fact, a substantial number of contracts provided no further increase in
the second year (Labour Gazette, March 1957, Page 337).

when the other benefits are considered,
18,  At present wage rates, these Companies have had no difficulty
in getting the men they want to serve as Engineers and qualify themselves
for advancement by obtaining the necessary certificates. No case can,
therefore, be made on this point alone, for an increase in wages beyond
the 5 per cent already offered.
THE T3EKB OF WAGES.
19. Additional material purporting to substantiate a larger increase
was submitted in the pamphlet, "The 1957 Wage Situation"
20. The pamphlet compares the trend of an index of Marine Engineers'
earnings generally since 1916, more particularly since 1947, and the
movement of the General Average Wage Sate Index over the same period; it
compares earnings of Engineers and wage rates of certain selected shore-
based trades for the past ten years; and it discusses, by the use of
index numbers, the trend of real wages of these employees during the ten
years the Union has chosen as relevant to this dispute. With these
comparisons the pamphlet attempts to show that an unfavourable disparity
has developed between the wage rates of Marine Engineers and those of
other workers, which requires a wage rate of $410.00 per month for the
Fourth Engineer to rectify; and that their wages have not kept pace with
the increased cost of living.
21. Before dealing with the realities of the 1957 wage situation,
some general comments on the manner in which the pamphlet deals with wage
trends and comparisons will be cf interest and assistance to the Board.
22. To begin with, management wishes to voice objection to the
comparison of Marine Engineers' wages with the General Average Wage Sate
Index. This index is a composite of the index numbers of wage movements

26. Nowhere is the construction of this aggregate salary explained.
What 27 positions were chosen and why that particular group? If a figure
had to be constructed, why was it an earnings figure rather than a wage
rate figure, when the only actual wage comparisons made are with ware rates?
The first column of Table IV shows what is called an hourly wage rate for
Marine Engineers. Is this figure derived from the aggregate salary whose
movement is shown by index numbsrs in Tables I, II and III?  Why, when in
the final analysis the claim for an increase is based on the wage rate of a
Fourth Engineer, was not the wage rate of a Fourth used throughout?
27. Clarification of this average rate is important to the argument
but what is of greater importance is the choice of the base year from which
all calculations but one in the pamphlet are made.
28. On page 2, 1947 is arbitrarily chosen as the base year on the
grounds that in that year a wage increase and a reduction in hours were
negotiated which established parity between Marine Engineers and the general
average wage. Yet, the first two columns of Table IV show, if the figures
are correct, that the Marine Engineers' wages were higher than the
Machinists by 7,7 cents. This is a substantial difference and means a
monthly amount of $16.02 if the calculation is made on the basis of the
48-hour week in effect during the first half of 1947 and $14.68 cents on the
44-hour week that went into effect on July 1st of that year.
29. If parity were the sole objective, on the basis of Table IV
1948 would have been a better choice of base year, for the table shows a
disparity that year of only one cent between the Engineer and Machinist.
30. It should be noted that the conclusions drawn from Tables I, II, IV
and V and the chart on Page 4 all depend upon the selection of 1947 as the
base year fci.*, by its use, the effect of the wage increase and reduction
in hours in 1947 is eliminated from all subsequent calculations.

Dear Ms. Hamilton:
Concerning your application for the position of Hairdresser

that the vacancy has now been filled.
It is felt that at the present time your youth and limited
experience $£&aW$£/you  from qualifying for a position of
this nature, which carries with it a great deal of responsibility
and necessitates the commitment of remaining on the ship for the
entire season of five months. »
Do not, however, be discouraged as I feel sure that in a year
or two you will be fully capable of handling such a position
and perhaps you will wish to approach us again when that time comes
ymmm you will receive every consideration.
It occurs to me that to gain some experience you will agree to
being available to be called on to work a trip or two when our
Hairdresser is absent due to illness, etc. If so, I will keep
your telephone number on hand should such an occasion arise.
Meanwhile, thank you for your interest in Canadian Pacific.

 CANADIAN
PACIFIC
LIMITED
British Columbia Coast Steamship Service
HIS TORY
The initial local water service on the Pacific
Coast was provided by the Hudson's Bay Company's paddle-wheel
steamer "Beaver," built in England and brought around Cape
Horn to this Coast in 1836. The complete voyage out was
made under sail and occupied 225 days, the paddles being
fitted after arrival on the Pacific Coast.  She engaged in
general service, making voyages as reguired. Until the railway came to Vancouver, Victoria was the distributing point
on the B.C. Coast, and all coastal steamship service radiated
from that point.
The Hudson's Bay Company continued exclusively to
operate the necessary coastal services until approximately
1877, including in the later years, a regular service between
Victoria and New Westminster.  About 1877 the late Captain
John Irving entered the, picture with a service from New
Westminster to Yale on the Fraser River, operating in cooperation with the Hudson's Bay Company's service between
Victoria and New Westminster.
In 1880, when construction of the Canadian Pacific
Railway west of the Rockies got underway, in connection with
that construction work Captain Irving was given a contract
to carry passengers and freight from Victoria to Yale, thus
for the first time entering into active competition with
the Hudson's Bay Company.
The outcome of this competition was the incorporation in Victoria in 1883 of the Canadian Pacific Navigation
Company, which consolidated the interests of both concerns
under Captain Irving's direction. At that time the new
company had a fleet of nine vessels.  Between 1883 and 1901
the fleet grew from nine to 14 ships, with a total tonnage of
10,097. The individual tonnages in 1901 ranged from 175 to
1525.
In 1901 the capital stock of the Canadian Pacific
Navigation Company was purchased by the Canadian Pacific Railway, and as a result, the B.C. Coast Steamship Service came
into being.

Dear Mrs. Broughton:
Your daughter, Mrs. Myrtle Hahn, telephoned this office
today regarding your late husbsnd's pension cheque for
the month of February, 1975.
I have looked into this and while the monthly survivor
pension award was a routine matter handled by our Pensions
Department, the matter of the February cheque is being
handled by our Law Department as it is a legal matter and
forms part of Mr. Broughton's estate.
The Law Department has advised me today that they are still
working on it end that you should not have to wait too long
before you receive the money.
Yours truly,
