1. The Company will not put into effect any technological
operational or organisational change of a permanent
nature which will have adverse effects on employees

officer as may be named by the union concerned to
receive such notices.  In any event, not less than
three months' notice shall be given if relocation
of employees is involved, and two months' notice in
other cases, with a full description thereof and with
appropriate details as to the consequent changes in
working conditions and the expected number of employees
who would be adversely affected.
2. When a notice is issued under Clause 1 of this Article
and it becomes known to the Company that the change
will be delayed for reasons over which the Company
has no control, an advice will be issued to the
employee's representative or such other officer as may
be named by the union concerned, and employees involved
explaining the situation and revising the implementation
dates.  If necessary, more than one such advice may be
issued.
3. When the implementation of a technological, operational

Mr. A.E, Hilling

Reference your letter of July 14th, File CAS.47.374.1,
regarding handling of "Princess of Vancouver* at Vancouver and Wellcox slips.
The points you raise are well taken and have been the
cause of concern over the years. From time to time we
issue instructions to our own Masters, and request co- :
operation on the part of the other companies using the
facilities. X will again draw to the attention of all
concerned the necessity of watching the particular
features you have raised in your letter.
With regard to the actual berthing of the vessel, you
can appreciate that with large ships, particularly the
size of the "Princess of Vancouver, ■ absolute control
of the movement in confined quarters is not always
possible, when considering the effect of wind and tide.
However, the Masters do their best to minimize the effect
of any impact, and they are always cautioned to do so.
Whenever any Master is newly appointed and interviewed
prior to his placement, one of the things that is strongly
drawn to his attention is that while schedules are important, they do not take precedence over safety of
property and persons.  It is also brought to the Masters'
attention that they must report any damage or suspected
damage caused.
With regard to lowering the slip during the docking of
the vessel, in my opinion, this is a controllable action

Reference your letter to Mr. A.F. Joplin of July 22nd,
File 103-25-6, copy to me, regarding docking facilities
at Nanaimo.
X met with Mr. Bromley last week concerning this matter.
At the meeting, it was agreed that only those repairs
required to maintain the facility in working order would
be carried out at this time.
As to the,allocation of charges, the background was briefly
reviewed with Mr. BrorAtey, and it was felt that a change
in the basic arrangement with respect to maintenance
charges would be a major one, necessitating the full
assessment, and was a matter vihich we could hot resolve
between ourselves at this time.

Reference your letter of July 24th, File 103-12, regarding James island service.
It appears there are three approaches to this problems
1. To secure a higher rate from CP Rail for traffic
moved on this route i
2. Explore the possibility of B.C.C.S. handling the
traffic, by diversion of say either the "carrier
Princess" or the "Trailer Princess." The practicability of this is already under study with regard
to fitting the ramp and scheduling?
3. Canadian National and ourselves both serve James
Island. In the case of Canadian National, the
service is from Tilbury Island, and in our case
of course, from Vancouver. In both oases the
service is usually once a week.
From time to time over the years, consideration has been
given to and discussions held with respect to a joint
service, due to the small number of cars moving to and
from James Island, and the fact that in almost every
case, one barge or unit could handle the combined traffic.
However, for policy reasons, in the past neither company
has been willing to allow the other to handle its traffic.

Xn any case, our vessel, the "Princess Patricia,"
is a relatively small ship and does not require the
provision of entertainment fay a group of your size.
Bearing in mind musical background of your group, X
would suggest that you write to the operators of the
larger vessels in the Alaska service, such as P. & 0.
Lines, 409 Granville Street, Vancouver, B.C.

Dear Mr. Bickle:
This has reference to our exchanges of correspondence concerning
damage sustained to your automobile on our "Princess of Vancouver '
June 22, 1975.
I have now completed a thorough investigation into the circumstances
surrounding this unfortunate incident. The passageway down which
you were required to back your car was 12*4" wide and eleven cars
had successfully preceded you and were suitably parked. The Seaman
who was assigned to traffic direction is not required to direct
automobiles the full length of the ship bet simply to bring them
to a stop a short distance from their eventual parking space and
then personally direct them to that final space.
I consider that there is a large measure of responsibility on the
part of the driver to properly operate hie car aud under the circumstances relative to the space available for passage of yo^i  car, 1
do not consider we are in anyway responsible for the damage sustained.
If you were experiencing any difficulty iu hacking your car up iu
this area, I feel it was incumbent upon you to bring your car to a
stop and request assistance from the member of our staff on duty at
that location.
In view of the foregoing, I regret thet we must decline your claim
in its entirety.
Yours truly,
J. YATES,

Mr. B.D* Margetts
Montreal, Que.
Kindly refer to your letter of July 15th, File 102-25,
103-34, addressed to Mr. Keith Coppard, university Tcurs
Limited, Montreal.
For your information, in years past we have permitted
University-Tours Limited, block space on the "Princess
Patricia," up to approximately three years ago. Their
support of this block space was minimal and their
cancellation of unused space left an awful lot to be
desiredj in short, our relationship was not productive.
I would hesitate to become involved with them in any
brochure publication, unless you desire to extend this
financial assistance to Horizon Holidays Ltd., Whose
head office is also in Toronto and who, this year, are
putting approximately 50.0 passengers on board the
"Princess Patricia" over a series of tours, and with
Whom we have no financial obligation for assistance in
their brochure publication.
We naturally would be most interested in any approach
being made by university Tours, but in view of the
foregoing we would be most cautious in any arrangements
we decide to enter into.

Dear Mrs. Baugi
We wish tc acknowledge receipt of your letter dated
July 2nd. Have delayed replying in order to speak
to personnel involved, who have been on leave.
Although you mention coffee being 30$, our menu
actually indicates that it is 25$, Vhich is incidental
to the matter referred to in your letter.
We do apologise for the attitude of the Cashier, *rfho
is of Australian descent and who, because of the
passage of time unfortunately does not recall the
incident.
We are surprised to read your comments concerning the
cigarette machine, as standing arrangements provide
for the passengers to receive any difference in change
from our Utrser, in view of the machine's breakdown
from time to time, and 400 is enclosed, to which you
are entitled.
As happens to some of us, this must have been an off
day for our Cashier, as normally she is very obliging
and helpful*  Wo do regret the inconvenience you experienced, but are very pleased that you took the
trouble to write to us concerning your difficulty.
Yours very truly,

Dear Mr, Howard!
Thank you kindly for contacting us recently in con*
nectlon with the possibility of your firm reserving
group space on board the "Princess Patricia" in
1976.
We are pleased to enclose current literature respecting this year's cruise, together with advance information on rates and scheduling for 1976,
On the basis of 10 to 24 adults or equivalent, 5054
reduction is accorded escort accompanying group, off
minimum accommodation* 25 to 49 adults, one free
minimum passage is available, and 50 or tAore, two free
tickets are available*
Commission is currently available at the rate of 10%,
except on escort's reduced fare.
In view of the continuing fluctuation of our respective
currencies, we suggest that deposit and final payment
be paid in Canadian funds by bank draft, which will
afford you the greatest reduction on your dollar at
time of purchase* Because of the fluctuation, ws have
found it necessary to make a policy that rate at time
of deposit will apply, regardless of whether it is in
your favour or in ours, hence the advantage to you of
using Canadian funds bank draft*

All tour requests are considered en masse in October
for positioning and assignment of space on the following year's cruises. Assignment of rooms is made as
near requests as is possible, and should tour requests
exceed the percentage of occupancy permissible on any
one sailing, alternatives will be appreciated for consideration ■ in this.; event * '■■ I	
Our policy is to review status of bookings periodically
during the early part of the new year, depending upon
date actual assignment is made, with deposits requested
on confirmed booking!, release of 5096 of unassigned space
within three months of bookings, and final release of
any unassigned space on next review, with final payment
due at least one month prior to sailing*
We look forward to being associated with your firm in
any endeavour contemplated, and will be pleased to
furnish additional information concerning amy facet of
our cruise, upon your request.
Please note shore excursions operated by independent
operators are available at all ports, except Wrangell,
where, because of the shortness of the port call,
passengers will usually spend their time in town shopping
instead of sightseeing.
With every good wish for future associations.

I am attaching correspondence which represents my complete file
concerning damage to Millar & Brown trailer No. 7014 while being
loaded on our "Carrier Princess" June 21, 1975.
This type of trailer is equipped with air operated hydraulic lege and
if they are not locked into position before the trailer la raiaad
by a fifth-wheel type tractor, they will drop down a short distance.
This is what took place whan trailer. 7014 waa picked up by a CP.
Transport driver for loading, resulting in the legs striking the
slightly raiaad railway tracks when crossing same.
I consider thia constitutes negligence on the part of the CP.
Transport driver and under the terms of our Hostling Agreement with

Dear Mr. cooper*
This has reference to your letter of July 16th and
meeting held in my office this morning, regarding
cancellation of the "Seaspan Doris" sailing July 9,
1975, Vancouver to Kelsey Bay.
As mentioned at the meeting, Seaspan is not being
held responsible for failure to keep your vessel on
schedule* The comments in your letter, which were I
discussed at the meeting, are fully appreciated, ami
you can rest assured that every effort will be made
to maintain the Wednesday sailing, and if found necessary at any time to cancel it, further effort will be
made to provide you with as much prior notice as
possible.
You can appreciate that while there were circumstances
to cause concern earlier in the week, the vessel was
not really that far out of position late on July 8th,
but as a result of the delay oauaed by the switch
crew, steps had to be taken • At the best, it would
not have been practical to have advised you much before 0000 or 0900 on the morning of the sailing.

amended so that in case of marine disaster compensation
against loss of personal effects be increased from $400.00
to $500.00.
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)":-
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.
