Your letter of May 26, concerning R. ROBINSON, injured May 29, 1974.
What Mr. Robinson claims is correct. He was not compensated for
work during the period December 18, 1974 to January 13, 1975, but
did indeed receive payment for accumulated leave earned prior to
injury.
It is also true that he would have received this money pn termination
of employment with CP. Rail as he had not taken it previously.

NOTICE TO SHIPPERS:
The hostling system at Vancouver and Swartz Bay has been in
operation for several months now, and we have had a good opportunity to assess its effectiveness.  From our own observations and through discussions with patrons, it appears to be
the solution to many problems experienced in the past.
Prior to establishing the system, we determined a rate for
the service, hoping we would at least break oven on the
service performed.  Our estimate was not out by much, but
with increased costs during the past few months it has been
found necessary to increase the rate to recover the ccet
of providing the hostling service.
We would appreciate any comments you may wish to make regarding the hostling service, and any constructive criticism to
improve the operation.
The supplemental tariff is available at our terminals at
Nanaimo, Victoria or Vancouver.

Mr. Leo Van den Brink
c/o Sngelberg 22
Leersum—Utrecht
HOLLAND
Dear Mr. Van den Brink:
With reference to your letter of May 9, and further to conversation
with our Mr. Cairns concerning possible employment on this Company's
vessels.
It will be appreciated that ve cannot make you a hard and fast offer
in advance but would say that you have an excellent chance of a
4th Engineer's position with us if you will be kind enough to report
to this office Immediately on arrival in Vancouver.
Another reason that we cannot make a really firm commitment is that
we have a contract with the Canadian Merchant Service Guild, through
whom we hire all our Ship's Officers and will quote you the Article
dealing with the subject of hiring which is as follows:
"Afflcfrfi i - mmnwn
"1.2 The Company recognises the Guild as the source of
supply for all Officers covered by the Agreement,
and will request such personnel from the office of
the Guild as required."
"1.3 In the event of the Guild being unable to supply
competent personnel with sufficient promptness the
Company aha11 have the right to obtein replacements
elsewhere, his name ahall be given to the Guild,
within fourteen (14) days."
Notwithstanding, in the past they have been extremely co-operative in
allowing us to hire direct for the junior grades of Ships' Engineers
but you must join the Guild within fourteen days of being hired.
...2
 Mr. L. Van den Brink - 2 - May 21, 1975
To ahow your good intentions, we would recommend that you report
to them alao on arrival in Vancouver.
It is regretted that we cannot be more definite but you ere assured
that we will place you as soon aa possible after your return to
Canada.

Mr. W.W. Martin
Vancouver,  B.C.
I am returning your complete file,   PA 154318c,  concerning damage to Doman Trailer 234505 December 21,   1974.
Your remark that repairs to the trailer and labour to
reload the lumber were authorized by this  office,   is
not entirely correct.     If a shipper directly makes a
request on this office to go ahead with repairs to a
trailer damaged while being handled by us,  he  is  always
told to do so and submit his claim for handling in the
usual manner,   but he is distinctly  informed that this
does not constitute responsibility on our part.    The
bill for  $37.43  from Doman was as a result of their  request to Casco to reload the  lumber on to another
trailer.
I am of the firm opinion that the settlement of the
claim for the damaged trailer  is   between Doman and
Wallace,  as the latter  loaded the  lumber and is   responsible for the poor chains,  and Doman handled the
unit  for them.     I do not feel  that we are responsible
for this  damage.

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):-
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

The Union demanded that present Article 2, Section
7 (b), meal allowance be increased from two dollars and
fifty cents ($2.50) to seven dollars and fifty cents ($7.50)
per day.
Article 2, Section 7 of the present agreement is

Mr. M.W. Holland
Montreal, Que.
Reference your letter of May 7th, File 103-6.
There has been no direct transfer as such, between
Canadian National's "Prince George" and our "Princess
Patricia" service. All new inquiries and/or requests
for space have been initiated by individuals and
agencies.
In view of the fact that Canadian National indicated to
their clients the names of all available Alaska cruise
ship services, feel there wes no moral obligation to
compensate Canadian National for any business secured
directly as a result of cancellation of their service.
You may wish to inquire if Canadian National recovered
their commission from agency cancellations, or in good
faith allowed the retention of same, in which case they
would have a right to recall it in view of our allowing
agencies commission on the sale of "Princess Patricia"
accommodation.
The only direct reference given us was in connection
with an October 12th charter of the "Prince George,"
but beyond discussing with the operators the possibility
of utilizing the "Princess Patricia," it was finally

receive an allowance of six dollars ($6.00)
per day in lieu thereof.  This allowance will
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 8, sub-section
(e) of the present Agreement which 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

Memorandum
Mr. B,D. Margetts
Reference B.C.C.S. News  operation.
The News  Stands  on the   "Princess Marguerite,f  "Princess
Patricia" and "Princess  of Vancouver" have been operated
for some years  by commissioned News Agents on the  first
two vessels,  and by a salaried News Agent on the  "I rincess
of Vancouver."    The operation has  required a News   Stock
inventory of from $15,000 to $25,000,  depending on peak
periods.    With the sale of the   "Princess  Marguerite,"  it
now leaves us  with a large inventory and only two vessels
to  dispose of  the stock.    The  "Princess  of Vancouver's"
sales are of a minor nature in souvenirs,  which represents
the bulk of the  inventory.
It  is proposed,   therefore,   to sell the   inventory to the
present News Agent on the  "Princess  Patricia," and she
will pay the Company the sum of $450 per trip in lieu of
commission on her sales.    On the basis of 19 trips  in the
season,  return to Company approximates  net revenue obtained  from  "Princess  Patricia" News  operation in 1974.
The sale of the inventory would be on the basis of 90C on
the dollar,  as  there has  been an accumulation of dead
wood over the years.     It  is suggested that sale involve
down payment  of $2,000 and balance spread over the 19
trips.     Discounted inventory  now approximates $15,000.
It is  not intended to charge interest on balance of
payments.
 23.
Canada, but urges the Board most strongly to deny the
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
without a full complement of unlicensed watchkeeping personnel
in the engineroom department and another watchkeeping Engine-
room personnel who is normally assigned other duties performs
 2.
This proposal should prove beneficial to the Company, both
from the standpoint of a very minor investment in News
stock for the "Princess of Vancouver," reduce costs account
staff requirements for stock handling, and still provide
reasonable revenue return.
If you approve, may I have your authority to progress
matter to a conclusion.

 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 followss-
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
proceedings that it was prepared to grant a ninth statutory
holiday, i.e.: Boxing Day, contingent upon a satisfactory wage
settlement being negotiated.
The Company stated clearly at that time that it was not

Insurance benefits. He, apparently, only drew them for a few
weeks.
Aa he has the choice of drawing either, but not both, will you

the money peld out by the Canadian Unemployment Insurance

Dear Sirs:
Re:    Chee CHAN, Stlt E9« 70fr-?2;H3?
Mr. Chee Chan has been drawing unemployment insurance benefits
wliile leid off from this Company and it would be appreciated if
you will adviae the emounts and for periods covered that he
actually claims since October 6, 1974, to date.
Mr. Chan has been drawing U.S. Social Security due to the fact
that he contributes by payroll deduction when our vessel is
operating in U.S. waters.
The U.S. Railroad Retirement Board are now demanding re-payment
of $1,342.57 which they paid to Mr. Chan in Social Security
benefits for the period October 6, 1974, to March 31, 1975.
Mr. Chan thinks that he can avoid this by re-paying the Unemployment Insurance Commission the benefits he has  received which he
states were for only e few weeks this year.   He had with him
a cheque in the amount of $214.98 which he aald he was going to
return immediately to you.
As this employee does not read English to* well 1 think he become
confused when his U.S. payments atopped temporarily and assuming
he wea at the end of hia benefita, he applied for Canadian Unemployment Insurance.
When aupplying the information requeated in paragraph three will

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 5:00 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
deck, shall not be considered sanitary duties."

and shall be called EXHIBIT "E".  Considering there are
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
way 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 1969 of these fifteen senior deck ratings is attached 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 cases, 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
would amount to $328,950.00 per annum for an average of

from Chateau Lake Louise,following up your letter of July 22, 1974,
and 07 reply of August 2, 1974, concerning employment on this
Company's vessels.
I regret to state that there will be very few vacancies this year,
as all of the girls who were with us last season have requested
employment egaln this year and, of course, we will have to accommodate as many aa possible.
That is not to say there will not be any openings during the 1975
season but it is the problem of you living in Toronto. When vacancies
arise we usually require people at short notice and unless you are
available to us here in Vancouver I doubt whether we would have
aufflcient time to write you and have you here when required.
If it is your Intention to come to Vancouver in any case this
pleaae call into this office immediately on arrival and we will
diacuss the matter further.

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.

Dear Mr. Bechard:
Reference your letter May 7th concerning damage to
Sidney Freight Trailer T4 at Vancouver on December
19,   1974.
It is apparent  from your latter that you do not have
the faeiui of thia oaaa as t^ay aaiit.    I wrote you in
connection .with-this t claim on December 27,?1974, March
31st and April 7th^  1975.     It is ^hfortunate that my
letter of April 7th stated that damage occurred at
Swartz say, but in conversation with you on April 16th
as a resultAOf ycwr letter qf April llth,  this error
Was correctedi, and at that time you were supplied with
the information requestad*A   ;AaAA
To save any further delay in the settlement of this
claim,  I am attaching copies of my above-mentioned
letters, and would specifically draw your attention to
the fact that this damage occurred during loading
operations at Vancouver under the control of your driver,
Len Munroe, and that inspection of the trailer in
question was made at Victoria by Salvage Association,
to avoid delay in handling of the trailer.    You will
also note the Responsibility Clause, under which wa
consider the responsibility for damage to be yours.

of pension rights and employee's contributions to the
pension fund is based on monthly wage rates less the
amount deducted to pay for subsistence.  These provisions
are set forth in Article 3 of the present Agreement.
The provisions as outlined in the existing agreement
merely provide for an increase in the monthly wage rates of
$1.00 per day for the deck and engineroom ratings who are in
receipt of subsistence from the Company, and the Company then
deducts from the wages of such employees an amount equivalent
to $1.00 per day to pay subsistence provided these employees.
This arrangement was agreed upon some time ago when demand
was received from the Union so they could be provided with a
receipt which they use for Federal Income Tax purposes.  When
this arrangement was agreed upon, it was definitely stipulated
that the collection of pension rights and employees contributions to the Pension Fund would be based on the monthly wage
rates less the amount deducted to pay for subsistence.  The
Board is requested to leave the present conditions unchanged.
The Union demanded that contributions to the Railroad
Retirement Fund be on a voluntary basis by the employee.
The Company is required by law to make a deduction
from the wages of employees working on B.C. Coast Steamship
Service ships whilst in the territorial waters of the United
States an amount equivalent to 9.55% (present rate) of each

amended so that in case of marine disaster compensation
against loss of personal effects be increased from $400.00

During negotiations, the Company agreed to this demand.
The Union demanded that the following provision be
added to the present Article 2, Section 14 and to read
"Sub-section (b)"s-
Tradesmen or crew members who are required
to provide their own tools shall receive up
to an additional two hundred and fifty dollars
($250.00) for the value of the loss of such
tools.
As the Company does not require crew members to provide
their own tools and if circumstances ever warranted the use of
tools in line with Company practice such tools would be
provided by the Company.  It is therefore recommended that the
Board deny this demand.
34.   Wages and Overtime (Article 3)
The Union demanded the following;-
Basic monthly rate to be increased one
hundred and fifty dollars ($150.00) across
the board.  This is to reflect increases
in wages, basic monthly and hourly rates,
overtime rates and pro-rated vacation pay.
The Union's demand is exorbitant and the Company so
advised the Union.

The Union demanded that the following provision be

"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.

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
(l) 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
basis:-
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

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 5:00 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
deck, shall not be considered sanitary duties."

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
without a full complement of unlicensed watchkeeping personnel

This will be your authority upon Red caps '  request

of $3.00,  to be charged as Red Cap services.    Wherever
possible,  names will be given you in advance,  but in
each case those performing these duties will be properly
represented by their Red cap hats.      Please obtain signatures in the usual manner, accounting therefor
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 followsz-
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
proceedings that it was prepared to grant a ninth statutory
holiday, i.e.: Boxing Day, contingent upon a satisfactory wage
settlement being negotiated.
The Company stated clearly at that time that it was not

(b) by any unreasonable delay or otherwise

character in favour of or against ny particular

(c) subject any particular person, or company,

"Section 392.  Any company that, or any person

liable to any person injured by any such act
or omission for the full amount of damages

Act. "
From the foregoing it follows that the Company must,
in law, require its employees to carry out their duties and
that such employees cannot properly refuse duty without
lawful and justifiable reason.
The Board is strongly urged to deny this demand which
would impose unjustifiable restrictions on the Company's

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.

The Union demanded that the new following item be
