bccss accords any Travel Agency 1096 commission on
confirmed -Princess Patricia" sales, and we would
wish an arrangement to be set up through CP Rail/CP Air
accounting for this provision.  It would appear
from Schedule "B" that it has been suggested bccss
pay CP Air a commission of 10^ for the sale of any
traffic. In view of an additional 10& being paid
to a Travel Agent, when involved, this would mean
20% off tariff fare, which we feel we cannot afford,
and therefore request you review arrangements and

suggested contract prepared by Mr. A.A, Haziza,
Director, Industry Affairs - Marketing, with covering letter:from Mr. W.D. Gordon, General.Sales

Vancouver, B.C.
Dear Mr. Gordon:
Thank you kindly for your letter of October 30th,
File 6520-3, to which we have delayed replying
due to flu and vacations of both Mr. Reid and Mr. '
Yates.  _ ....
we reel' that Mr. Kaziza is assuming that the intended relationship between CP Air/B.C. Coast Steamship Service, will be s imilar to that presently
effect between CF Air and CP Rail. Perhaps it
should be pointed out that BCCSS does not have the
facilities to issue or handle CP Air paper, and
that urdiks CP Rail, who sell CP Air, bccss does not
wish to participate in an arrangemeht involving the
issuance by BCCSS of CP Air paper.
Our original thinking, as you may recall, was that
perhaps CP Air could assist BCCSS in the marketing
of the "Princess Patricia" Alaska cruise spaces
through CP Air's various outlets, assuming, naturally,
that those inquiring for "Princess Patricia" accommodation would also be interested in utilising CP Air
for their trip to Vancouver, rather than automobile
or some other form of surface transportation.
For this service, BCCSS suggests that CP Air be accorded up to 5% commission on all sales finalised.

receiving the January insertion coupons. Normally
the January advertisement has a very light response,

Kelsey Bay, which will be covered later in this
memorandum.
Ideal situation would be to have Port McNeil the
first port of call of the * seaspari Doris,"k and
Port Hardy the second. These two areas are growing
and are the shopping and distribution centres for
NEVI. This would eliminate the present backhaul of
freight to Beaver Cove, which is most undesirable
and costly to consignee.
There is a B.C. Ferry dock at Port McNeil which, with
certain alterations, would be suitable for the
" ieaspan Doris." There is no trailer parking at slip
and trailers would have to be unloaded and picked up
approximately five city blocks aviay at Haida Freight
Terminal. The unfortunate part is that the slip is
in the middle of town, and activity would be midnight
to 3:00 a.m. This would be disasterous to our good
will as well as to the sleep of the townspeople, and
therefore is not recommended.
y. .">
There IS an alternate barge Slip on MacMillan Bloedel
property, approximately...threemiles south of Port McNeil;
however, . it is a Jtidal; operation .and considerable sums
would have to be> spe.it to ready'it for a roll-on rOll-off
operation with the "Doris."
Port Hardy is 'presently''the largest town in the area.
Present barge slip, and new barge slip under consideration by MacMillan Bloedel, are only accessible at high
tidev Port; Hardy wharf is available at all tidesr
1    however, is not designed for a -^oil-on roll-off operation,
and again, a considerable sum would be required to be
spent. Also, there is no immediate area for parking of
trailers, and in view of high costs would not recommend
further action at this time. This could be reviewed if
and when B.C. Ferries move terminal from Kelsey Bay.
Consideration could then be given to approaching B.C.
Ferries for use of their facility.

1 ';  3t«
several meetings have been held with Marketing and Sales,
on involving representatives from Crpwn sellerbach,
Hooker Chemicals and Strait of Georgia Towing. Discussions
centered on Hooker's barge, which normally is placed at
A-l weekly to load saltcake and sulphuric acid for Elk
Falls.
concern has been expressed in various circles with
respect to loading dangerous commodities in the downtown
area, and Hooker advised that they no longer wish to
load at A-l for these reasons. Might add at this time
that the Hooker barge is reputed to be of poor design
and unstable, and their concern is probably justified.
If Hooker transfers the1-loading of the barge to their
North Vancouver plant. .barge slip (located near Second
Narrows. Bridgel* it will iaaean cars, of sulphuric acid
and saltcake originating on CP line will have to be
interchanged at Sapperton to the C.N.R. for delivery
to"Hooker plant#',:i This will add approximately $200.00
per car costs for interchange,-and Crown tellerbach are
understandably upset.
It is our intentionxto approach Crown sellerbach to see
if we can handle their cars on "Seaspan Doris ■ to Elk
Falls, and in return they would allow us to load and unload trailer traffic.
We would be looking at approximately five cars per trip,
estimated revenue $303.00 per car. This would, of course,
eliminate the Kelsey Bay stop. Mr. Robinson, Haida
Freight, has stated he would jump for joy at such a

ment. He further stated that he would look favourably
at acquiring property near Elk Falls to store trailers.
Haida again indicated that it is cheaper for them to
ship'through Nanaimo than haul trailers to Kelsey Bay,
and when possible they hold trailers for Kelsey Bay to
help build up the run. As a matter of information, B.C.
Ferries charge Haida $45-50 for a 40 ft. drop trailer,
Kelsey Bay to Beaver Cove. Additional time will be required to load and unload nix of rail and trailers, as
some trailers will require to be loaded on the top deck.
It would appear that the "Seaspan Doris'" would not be
able to arrive back at Vancouver until after midnight
Sunday. If she keeps present schedule; viz., ex Vancouver 2200 Sunday to Nanaimo, back Monday,    Vancouver
a.m. to Crofton, she will most certainly be 3-4 hours
late for the regular run to Nanaimo at 2300 Monday.
Our regular Nanaimo customers would be most unhappy with
this service. Alternative wa are looking into is to
cancel Sunday night trip of " ieaspan Doris" and run
the "Carrier Princess" Monday 1000; this would please
everyone. We would have to continue payment of $2270.00
for the loivt Sunday trip as well as extra expense to run
"carrier Princess".at approximately $750.00.

With respect to p llution equipmentT being installed at
Port Alice Pulp Mill, Damans will be handling cartage of
materials in (except for oversize material* which will
be shipped Via dumb barge ex Johnston's Cambie Yard).
Damans shipped on "Seaspan Doris t two-Saturdays in succession to Beaver Cove to try service. They have in-
y dicated further Shipments wilP most likely go via road,
■:as- costs are' very- 'c1qs?«V Port Alice requires 'immediate
service, and via road material r^wdy, say Tuesday,
shipped through Nanaimo early Tuesday night and run direct
to Port Alice, would arrive there Wednesday a.m. Another
major problem is Domans do not have any facilities in
area and must send tractor and driver via road to run
trailers from Beaver Cove to Port Alice. As "Seaspan
Doris" runs on weekend this is on double1 time.

5. Present indications are new highway will be completed
and paved by the summer of '76, with the exception of
20 miles. When the highway is open for traffic,
.vBeaver Cove ferries will relocate.their.present
facility at Kelsey Bay to area now being prepared at
Port Hardy. Our opinion, which is substantiated by
customers we have contacted, is that when the new
highway is completed there will no longer be a need
for a roll-on roll-off service to NEVI.
Barge service will still be required to handle freight,
which does not lend itself to rubber} i.e., high, wide
prefabricated pieces of machinery, etc.
The major users of our service to Nanaimo have indicated
that at present they are not actively interested in
NEVI due to high cost of operating in the area. Haida
Freight are the only trucking firm with a general
licence for NEVI. The others can only deliver a full
load to one consignee and pick up a full load from one
consignee. To obtain business north of Nanaimo, frequency of service is very important. To reduce costs
trucker must ensure eadn''"trailer is pxXly loaded, and
therefore* all trailer* tJurough, Nanaino carrying general
freight are loaded for several points; i.e., fiourtenay,
Campbell River, Gold River. On return movement, several
stops are made along route to pick up freight, and
trailer arrives back at Nanaimo with full load for Vancouver. Using this method, full utilisation, of equipment is realized. Trailers carried over water to say,
Beaver Cove, cannot be fully utilized by Johnston
Terminals. Doraans, C.P.T., etc., and when new road is
open Haida Freight will in all likelihood bring,his
trailers through Nanaimo, or preferably Campbell River,
in order to provide frequent service and obtain full
utilization of trailers.

B.C.C.S.S. ADVERTISIHO - 1976
Further to our letter of November 24th.
We have had an opportunity of reading the draft rewrite of
the 1976 advertising budget, which answers many of the
questions raised in your letter. A copy of the final
presentation will be forwarded to you as soon as available.
We feel that the rewrite covers marry of the areas we took
for granted, but in its presentation is representative of
what we feel will contribute towards a success fill 1976
season.
With reference to the copy of memorandum on the Bay of
Fundy service, we wish to advise as followsi
We have been turning over in our ainds in what manner we
might conduct effective seminars and/or meetings with
travel agents in the local area with respect to our BCCS
Service. Some years ago we were involved with a seminar
on board the "Princess of Vancouver," wherein approximately
20 travel agents were taken over on the noon sailing to
Nanaimo, accorded luncheon, a sightseeing tour in Nanaimo,
and returned on the 1600 sailing. This seminar was a
combined Atlantic service, CP Ferry services, which at
that time included Victoria-Seattle service and Alaska.
While the time period involved might be too long for our
purpose now, this is one area that has not been completely
discounted, other areas of course, are breakfast meetings,

and depending on the work done on the "Patricia," we
may even hold seminars on board ship, with luncheon
possibly at the Parlour Car. These items will be considered at the turn of the year, if we feel they are
practical and if the response is favourable to initial
inquiries to local travel agents.
We feel that tent cards contributed to the occupancy
factor on our Nanaimo service, and will continue their
use.
Insofar as our Alaska service is concerned, we are
associated next year with cp Air in a joint advertising
programme, with their CP Air Holiday magazine* which will
go to some 100,000 copies. We have coverage with U.T.L.
and Horizon Holidays brochures without cost to us, and
have coverage with every group operator merely by supplying the necessary material for their individual brochures.
We are covered in Ford's Deck Plan and Cruises, and in
other periodicals as listed in the 1976 advertising plan.
"Princess of Vancouver" will be represented in local publications, but will not be covered in any joint advertising
programme by any other concern. We feel 1975 has been a
successful year for the "Princess of Vancouver," and will
concentrate on improving what we did this year, with a
few additions, that will also be spelled out in the ferry
portion of the 1976 advertising plan.
It has been our practice to ensure that all tourist outlets receive literature and information on our Nanaimo services, and will continue this in 1976.
As the "Vancouver" is not used to any great extent by
group organisations, there is no joint participation in
this area respecting that vessel.
As advised earlier, we are making arrangements with gasoline
companies to show our routes on their maps to a greater extent than in the past.

We feel that when we operated the dance cruises on board
the "Princess of Vancouver" ourselves, we were more
successful than Granson has been in the promotion of the
ship, and will therefore revert to our own means. When
we were operating this service, practically every Saturday
evening was used from the beginning of June through to the
middle of September. This past year has seen very few
dance cruises.
Wo have received inquiries concerning Howe Sound cruises,
and will also promote these ourselves in the new year.
Our Advertising Department has lined up what we consider
to be excellent coverage, except the medium of T.V.
We have initiated meetings with our stewards * Department,
concerning passenger and commercial policy respecting the
"Princess of Vancouver," taking them to lunch following
meetings, and intend to continue these meetings approximately
every three months.
Our Advertising Department is exploring the possibility of
an Alaskan film, but we do not have any plans at the present
time for the involvement of the "Princess of Vancouver,"
except to the point of her possible inclusion in an Alaskan
film , if produced.

J. Yates
Mr. B.D. Margotta^' '
Montreal, Que. :
We are attaching a Space Situation Report respecting group
travel for the 1976 "Princess Patricia" Alaska cruise
season.
While the percentage at the present time indicates 70.536
total occupancy of the vessel, we feel this will probably
round out at about €0% by the time some of the tour
operators who have come to us this season have reduced
their <Mramitment or cancelled out.
In 1975 the group tour situation was a very poor one,
with many of our long—time group operators returning space
to us in quantities not experienced in the past. The
reasons for this were twofold|  first, the depressed economy
of the United states in general, and second, the difficult
year experienced by farmers and cattlemen in areas of
origin of tour operators such as :*tyfarer. The feeling
at present of those tour group operators with whoa w© have
spoken, indicates a very favourable winter season, which
normally reflects a favourable summer progranne of tours,
which, of course, includes our Alaska cruises. They appear
very optimistic that 1976 will be a renewal of their usual
full occupancy of allotment of space.
We have established in this office a routine for checking
tour operators periodically to ascertain their progress,
but will contact each operator three months prior to sailing for a situation report and release of any space at
that time which it is felt cannot be sold by them. Full

ARTICLE 5 (?ont'd.)
5.4 For continuous service after regular working
hours, employees will be paid time-and-one-half on the actual
minute basis, with a minimum of one (1) hour at straight time
rate for any such service performed.
5.5 Employees shall not be required to work more
than two (2) hours without being permitted to go to meals.
Time taken for meals will not terminate the continuous service period and will be paid for up to thirty (30) minutes
at straight time rates.
5.6 Employees called or required to report for work
and reporting, but not used, will be paid a minimum of four (4)
hours at straight time rates.
5.7 Employees called or required to report for work
and reporting will be allowed a minimum of four (4) hours for
two (2) hours and forty (40) minutes or less, and will be
required to do only such work as called for or other emergency
work which may have developed after they were called and
cannot be performed by the regular force in time to avoid
delays in ship movement.
5.8 The right of an employee to go for a meal after
having performed an hour's work after the completion of his
regular shift is unquestioned.
5.9 Should an employee continue to work for more
than one (1) hour without going to rneal this shall not debar
him from being allowed to go for a meal thereafter, but after
the ninth (9) hour it is optional with the employee as to
whether he continues work without being allowed to go for a
meal.
5.10 Employees called or notified to return to work
in other than their regular assigned hours will, on responding
to calls, be advised the emergency for which called.  This
will not, however, prevent employees being used for other
emergency work which might develop subsequent to the time
called.
5.11 Employees will only be required to attend investigation outside their working hours v/hen the requirements
of the service will not permit the taking of statements
during regular working hours.
 2.
release of unassigned space will be required six weeks
prior to sailing, together with payment of space held.
The exception to the foregoing will be U.T.L.; although
we have advised them we require release one month in
advance, we will allow until two weeks prior to sailing
as agreed with them, but will cover them as well in the
routine check of all tour operators.    This will give us
the advantage of utilizing whatever space is available
to protect wait lists and other assignments.
Because of the postal strike we ha^nbt had any appreciable individual requests, although ws are beginning
to receive telephone requests.    With the completion of
the assignment of tour groups we are now proceeding with
individual requests left on file during the summer,
pending opening of berthing sheets.    First Occupancy
Report will be made after the turn of the year.

With reference to our conversation yesterday relative to
vehicle licence plates count at Vancouver and Nanaimo during
the past summer.
We are attaching statements received from the two ticket
offices concerned, and regret we did not receive the cooperation from Vancouver Wharf Ticket Office that had been
sought, their reply to.our query being they didn't have
sufficient staff to carry out survey to the extent required.
However, you will observe that approxinately the same
position is represented from Vancouver to Nanaimo as from
Nanaimo to Vancouver, B.C. licence plates outnumbering all
other Provinces or states by a very large majority.
The period desired for licence plate count was August 5-11
inclusive. You will note that Nanaimo included the 1330
sailing of the "Carrier" in addition to the three "Princess

In this connection Mr. Ken Key is meeting with Don Dixon and
Bob Ferguson concerning the 1976 advertising campaign, and
wish to receive an evaluation of their meeting prior to
answering fully your letter of November 17th. We particularly
note your concern regarding Reader's Digest.
We had a long discussion with Don Dixon concerning Reader's
Digest* and he is of the opinion this is a worthwhile advertising raediu, notwithstanding the governmental difficulty that magazine is presently faced with; however, we
understand that Reader's Digest will continue as a foreign
publication and that because of our programming of advertising, we should receive full exposure prior to any major
changes affecting the magazine.
A contingency switch has been considered by McKim's for
extended advertising in Maclean, in the event of any production difficulties by Reader's Digest.

With reference to your letter of November 14th, File 75,529,
in connection with request from Lord Polworth for specific
stateroom on May 31st -sailing of the "Princess Patricia"

We regret to advise all the cabins listed have been assigned
and that we do not have any rooms available aft on the Boat
Deck. We are offering for choice at the moment. Cabin 405
on the Boat Deck, a-ad will keep Lady Polwoartn prominently
listed for any cancellation of staterooms requested.
For your information, the May 31st sailing is 70% booked
to date* with majority of cabins available in the higher
category range.
Assuming Lady Polworth and her daughter will hold trip
passes, account Lord Polworth being a Director of Canadian
Pacific, covering transportation only, there would be 50%
reduction off passage portion applicable to Cabin 405,
amounting to $500.00. Tariff rate covering Cabin 405 is
$1292.00, leaving a balance of $792.00 Canadian. Ticketing

CREDIT  CARDS
Reference your letter of November 11th, Files 103-34 and
119.
The only concern we have with respect to the acceptance
of credit cards other than C? Rail,  is naturally the accounting and distribution of same, and would suggest that
until such tirae as our Treasury Department has negotiated
agreements with the other credit card firms concerned it
would not be prudent for us to enter into any separate
agreement•
We very seldom are requested to accept credit cards other
than Canadian Pacific, and While this  is not an answer,
it is a means of saying this is not a problem with either
our "Princess Patricia" marketing or "Princess of Vancouver.

Kindly refer to your letter of November 10th, File 103-34,
under heading "Alaska Cruises."
From time to tine we have been approached by individuals
interested in taking groups to Alaska during the normal
season and holding business meetings, lectures. Seminars,
etc. on board ship en route.
It has been our policy, and I think it is a good one, that
our regular passengers should not be penalized by being
excluded from any public area on board the "Patricia,* except during church services in the After Lounge, and at
times when we, the operator, have specific activities
taking place. All public areas are open areas, and to
permit one group private use of any area restricts our
passengers. The "Patricia" does have some limitations, and
unfortunately this is one of them, as we do not have a
private room of sufficient size on the ship where a group
may hold a party, meeting, or any other type of gathering.
For this reason it has always been mutually agreed by
ourselves and the people who have consulted us, that it
would not be practical to provide this type of service on
board ship.
The foregoing naturally refers to when the ship is in
operation. With the "Patricia" now berthed in Vancouver,
Mr. Reid has had the opportunity to take people over her
in laid-up condition. Of course, if a group is interested
in paying the cost of placing heaters on board ship, we
would take this into consideration, but the vhole atmoe-

4.6 An employee who has become entitled to a vacation
with pay shall be granted such vacation within a twelve
(12) month period immediately following the completion of
the calendar year of employment in respect of which the
employee became entitled to the vacation.
4.7 Applications for vacation from employees filed
between December 15th of the previous year and January
3lst shall insofar as it is practicable to do so be given
preference in order of seniority of the applicants. Such
applicants will have preference over later applicants.
Applicants will be advised in February of the dates allotted
them, unless otherwise mutually agreed employees must
take their vacation at the time allotted.
4.8 Unless othervAv.se mutually agreed, employees who
do not apply for vacation prior to February 1st shall be
required to take their vacation at a time to be prescribed
by the Company.
4.9 An employee terminating his employment for any
reason at a time when an unused period of vacation with
pay stands to his credit shall be allowed vacation calculated
to the date of his leaving the service as provided in
Articles 4.1, 4.2, 4.3 or 4.4 as the case may be, and if not
granted shall be allowed pay in lieu thereof.  In the case
of an employee v:ho enter:* the service in the current calendar
year and leaves it after more than thirty (30) days' service
in that year, such employee is entitled to vacation or pay
in lieu thereof in accordance with Article 4.1.

any vacation due him at the beginning of the current
calendar year and not previously taken and, if not
subsequently recalled to service during such year, shall
upon application be allowed pay in lieu of any vacation due
him at the beginning of the following calendar year.

phere of the ship is totally different. Carpets are removed from stairways, cardboard runners are in passageways;
food services are not available, although we could aer-
tainly permit catering services to be utilized, but the
winterized condition of the ship does not lend itself to
a seminar.
The foregoing reasons are not given from a negative viewpoint to your suggestion, but from a realistic viewpoint
of what we can offer on the "Patricia," both in service
and when laid up. Naturally, the alternative to the
foregoing is that seminars be arranged prior to the commencement of service and immediately following, when the
ship is in a more presentable position, and should an
opportunity occur to utilize the ship for this purpose,
we will certainly use same*
We have already been approached by a group interested in
conducting a meeting on board the "Patricia" next spring,
prior to the commencement of service, and this is being
held in abeyance pending confirmation of a May 7th charter
and/or a cruise to Seattle, as was done over the Thanksgiving weekend.

ARTICLE  8
MEDICARE ALLOWANCE
8.1 Effective October 1, 1972, all existing payments
of the premiums by the Company for basic medical-surgical
benefits for employees covered by this agreement shall be
discontinued and will be replaced by monthly allowances to
be applied against payments provided for under any government
medical care program in accordance with the terms of this
Article 8.
8.2 Subject to the provisions of Clauses 8.3 and
8.4 participating employees, if single shall be paid a
monthly allowance of $5.50 or, if married, a monthly
allowance of $11.50.  Each monthly allowance will be paid
bi-weekly.  Married employees will be paid $5.29 in each
pay period and single employees $2.53 in each pay period.
8.3 Such monthly allowances will first be used to
pay any amount that the Company is, or might in the
future, be required to pay for such medical-surgical
benefits under any government medical care program.
8.4 If no amount is payable under Clause 8.3 or
if the amount payable or to be payable by an employee or
by an employee and the Company account basic medical-
surgical benefits is less than the monthly allowance,
the difference will be paid to the employee on the payroll
and if the amount is greater, the difference will be
deducted from the employee's wages.

in past years, although figures are not available* we feel percentage was higher.
(c) This feature should be researched further.
(d) Barriers to extended use would be adverse weather
conditions to extension of Alaska service in
October and winter months. Although we successfully operated a Thanksgiving weekend cruise in
local waters, the extended use of this type of
cruise in the fall would be dependent upon timing
and the availability of sufficient number of interested passengers at that time of the year to
make such a cruise under possible adverse weather
conditions. You are probably aware that from
the middle of October we have had torrential rains
and high winds, which contribute to negative acceptance of cruising under such conditions. Therefore, the only open area is in the spring, and ws
are seriously looking at the prospects of running
an experimental cruise prior to commencement of
our charter season May 15th, or as soon as we are
able to determine the extant of our spring Alaska
charters, in other words, there is still a possibility of a May 7th Alaska charter.
4. As long as our increases are on a par with other cruise
operators, our relative position is maintained*  In no
way can ws approximate fares of other cruise operators,
due to the "Princess Patricia's age, tonnage, lack of
comparable public areas, specialized dining quarters,
name bands, name entertainers, etc.  We are unique in
what we have to offer oh the "Patricia," and should
maintain that basic image*

Block space assignment will be passed along to U.T.L. in
the very near future. We have confirmed to Mr. Rollins that
space has been assigned and is being -forked up by our Alaska
reservations staff. Although we suggested that we telex
details of space in view of the postal disruption, instead
we will mail O.C.S. to Mr. E.C. Johnson, Superintendent,
Passenger Services, Toronto, with the request that he advise
U.T.L. for pick-up by them in Toronto.
It will be a few months before we are able to ascertain the
effectiveness of U.T.L.*s utilization of the "Princess
Patricia?" however, we have set up a system of phone checks
which will be closely followed during the early part of
next year, in order that we may obtain release of space as
far in advance as possible, should we receive requests ws
are unable to take care of for specific types of accommodation. We will certainly let you know aa soon as possible .

a real gem, but Terry is a terrific procrastinator* When

. -•' i   ■ . A
Thank you for the comments contained in your letter of
November 13th, File 103-6, relative to "Princess Patricia"
1975 passenger surveys.
We also note the comments relative to the food services.
As you are aware, there will be a new Chief Steward "
appointed to the "Princess Patricia" in 1976, and quite
possibly a new Second Steward. We intend leaving no doubt
in their minds as to their responsibilities, particularly
respecting food services, and are hopeful that certain
areas of concern will be minimized*
We have written you separately concerning Terry and Betty
Haswell, but do consider them to be an ideal couple,
offering entertainment of a very high calibre acceptable
to the type of cruise passenger we carry*
The specific action we plan to take is as aforementioned.

t*t are pleased to attach comparative statement indicating
origin of passengers during the 1975 season of the
"Princess Patricia.*
In addition, we are shewing breakdown of the major Provinces
and States contributing the largest number of passengers.
You will note that Canadian participation has increased by
13,14:$ over 1974. This is largely made up of additional
passengers from Horizon Holidays of Canada, Midnight Sun
Tours of Chatham,Ontario, and Evergreen Tours, Vancouver,
B.C., the former having an additional sailing over 1974,
and the latter two being new Canadian tours, both of which
were very successful and will be with us in 1976, with
Midnight Sun Tours operating two tours.
'fa will shortly be forwarding an advance assignment position
of the "Princess Patricia" with respect to tour parties
utilising the 1976 sailings, which at this time Is proceed -
ing very well. The Canadian postal strike has hampered
confirmation to groups and the receipt of individual requests, but trust this will be remedied in the near future.

we propose to examine wage rates of semi-skilled and unskilled
labour in the Vancouver area as we believe that "community
comparisons" are pertinent to the issues at hand. The following
are the rates of pay for semi-skilled workers in the construction
industry:
Classification Rate per Hour
Building Labourer $1.60
Boilermakers' Helper $2.06-1/2
Plasterers' Helper (Hod Carriers) $1.90
Plumbers and Pipefitters' Helpers $1.85
Labourers (Electrical workers) $1.63
Machinists' Helpers $1.90
The above workers receive full room and board
when working on out of town jobs ana therefore are strictly comparable with seamen in that they may be required to maintain a
home in Vancouver or Victoria as the case may be.
The comparable rate for seamen utilizing the top
rate in the deck department, $210.00 per month which is $1.21
per hour. Thus the top deck rate is 40 cents per hour below
that of an unskilled labourer and of the order of 60 cents per
hour less than that of a semi-skilled worker. No further comment
is necessary.

The employers have in the past, and no doubt will
in the future point out that the increases in wages of seamen
since 1939 has been considerable. This is not surprising when
one examines the rates pf pay current in 1939. However the
Union believes th. t on examination these increases in the light
of those granted to other Canadians, are not e xessive, quite
the reverse as a matter of fact.
The present rates are $135.00 per month higher
than the 1939 rates for all categories except deck boys and
wipers whose increase have been somewhat lower. The Companies
would have us believe that these increases are of a generous
nature; the Union believes otherwise.
In the Canadian Statistical Review of August, 1954
we observe that the average weekly wage for firms customarily
employing 15 persons or more (Vancouver area) were $25.07 per
week in 1939 and $61.17 per week in 1954 (July). This is
equivalent to a monthly increase of approximately $156.40.
No doubt the Companies will object to the Union
comparing wages in 1939 and 1954 on a straight cents per hour
basis. They will suggest that a percentage basis should be used.
An examination of the rates prevailing in 1939 makes this approach
tempting (from the employers point of view) hoxirever wage trends
since 1939 rule out this method of approach.

The Union is requesting that the clause be amended
to provide for overtime payment at the rate of $1.50 per hour.
In order to appraise the merits of the Union's request
that the overtime rate be increased from $1.17 to $1.50 per hour
it might not be inappropriate if we were to examine the reasons
for prescribing penalty rates for hours worked in excess of a
stated number. Two motivations occur to us:
(1) To discourage employers from working their employees
longer hours than society or custom deems advisable.
(2) To encourage what is termed as "sharing the work".
The Fair Labour standards Act (U.S.A.) which provides
penaltj'" rates for overtime was motivated by concepts of
sharing work, enjoying leisure, and promoting the economic
well-being of workers.
From either viewpoint the present rate is inadequate.
The present overtime rate paid to seamen is lower
than that paid for straight time.
Thus from the viewpoint of the first criterion there
is little discouragement to the employers to prevent them from
working seamen unreasonable hours. It is accepted that owing
to the nature of the Companies' operations the working of
overtime may be unavoidable, therefore it is not suggested
that the penalty rate be prohibitive. However, we believe

other two Companies and are asking for this increase merely
to bring them up to the same standards as others in the
industry.
CONCLUSION
The Union believes that it has shown that its requests are
moderate and reasonable. It only remains to consider the effect of
the increases on the Companies. In the past, and no doubt today,
the Companies have argued that any addition to their costs will
render an increase in their tariffs inevitable, and as a consequence,
loss of business to alternative forms of transport will ensue.
The Union can not resist quoting two sources on this
assertion:
"There lias not been anjr record of an arbitration
case between a carrier and its employees in this
country that the Company did not plead inability to
pay." (Union spokesman Amalgamated Association of
Street j2Lectric and Motor Coach Employees versus
Pacific Northwest Public Service Company-Arbitrator,
Paul D. Shaw)
The ability to pay argument is a highly adaptable
tool for supporting management in a wage Conciliation, If
the Company is suffering consistent losses, inability to pay
applies with particular force and poignancy - a wage
increase or a refusal of a decrease may spell bankruptcy.  If
the Company is just breaking even, it is unable to pay since
a wage increase would throw it into the loss column. If

With reference to our letter of October 16th, File T-75-69,
Page 3, Item No. 4, respecting contact with Horizon Holidays.
Yesterday morning Mr. Reid had the pleasure of a visit from
Mr. Bernie Taylor, Vice-President of Horizon Holidays of
Canada Limited, and during conversation Mr• Taylor was asked
to what he attributes the success of Horizon Holidays and
the manner of their marketing.
In very simplified terras, Mr. Taylor said that just as we,
BCCSS, specialize in the "Princess Patricia" to Alaska, so
do they specialize in package tours and do an excellent
job with the tours they feature. They are most particular
concerning the air, land and water carriers that are utilized,
and also place a very high emphasis on the calibre of their
escorts.  It was interesting to hear Mr. Taylor discuss the
exercise the escorts are required to go through before acceptance by Horizon Holidays. Without doubt, the escorts
who have accompanied Horizon Holidays tour groups are the
best organized and disciplined, and most pleasant, presentable and knowledgeable of any escorted groups on our Alaska
service.
Mr. Reid had an opportunity of seeing the preliminary blue
print of Horizon ! Holidays 1976 brochure, which will be
in four colours, and it certainly does their company
credit•
While discussing the 1976 programme by Horizon Holidays
respecting the "Patricia," shoulder period travel was
mentioned, and although 1976 planning is pretty well complete, Mr* Taylor remarked that Horizon Holidays might

Departments, and any settlement on a substantially
different basis would have serious disruptive effects,"
v     Let us take the Companies' arguments to their logical
conclusion. The Companies can choose the Union with the weakest
bargaining position an i then turn around and say in effect that every
other employee should accept the same settlement.  The Union
emphatically rejects such a line of approach. We believe that
we have, and are entitled by law, the right to bargain for our own
wage rates on our own merits. We arree that there are certain
exceptions to the rule that Unions are entitled to bargain without
regard to settlements already achieved in the industry, but these
exceptions are mainly of the "tail wagging the dog" variety. Such
considerations do not apply here.
It should oe obvious to the Board from the foregoing
that none of the three groups of personnel have historically set the
"pattern" and therefore are not a compelling consideration in
determining the merits of the Union's requests, .
The Union apologizes to the Board for this lengthy
preamble but we believe that it is essential if the Union is to do
justice to the employees' case. l
It is agreed by the Companies that the work performed
by seamen, in most cases, is of a semi-skilled nature and therefore

Further in "Economic Data Utilized in Wage
Arbitration" (Jules Backman) we find the following on Page 28.
"When considering changes in wages in other industries,
should emphasis be given to changes in cents per hour
or to percentage changes? During the war and postwar
period, wage increases generally have been in terms of
cents per hour. As a result, higher-income workers
usually have been able to show an unfavourable status
on a percentage basis even though in absolute terms
they may have received wage increases as large or
larger than those received by lower-income workers.
In considering this question, the Presidential Board
in the 1949 Steel age Dispute concluded as follows:
The question then arises, which is the proper criterion
for approaching the inter-industry wage-rate inequity
i
question-the relationship among the increases in cents
per hour or in percentages of increases? The Board
believes that the cents-per-hour measure is the
preferable one because the increases before and after
the war were given in cents rather than percentages
and because, thereby, the tendency has been to give
the lower-paid workers the higher percentages of
increase."

this dispute. The latter provides for meal allowance

Throughout the meetings between the Union and the
Companies all three Companies were adamant in their refusal to
grant the requests of the employees. No common ground for
agreement was reached and it was for that reason that the Union
requested a Conciliation Officer.
The Minister of Labour appointed Mr. G. R. Currie
to act as Conciliation Officer in the dispute and several meetings
were held between the Union and Companies with Mr. Currie present.
No agreement could be reached as a result of these meetings, thus

Wage comparisons are often a compelling consideration in deciding the merits of a proposed wage increase; they can
also be manipulated to cause real injustice to members of a particular Union, The dispute before the Board is an example of the

was highly competitive, but a loss of traffic which was
formerly non-competitive, but which has now become subject
to competition by reason of the aforementioned long succession
of rate increases. Thus the law of diminishing returns is now,
in the inexorable economic sense, beginning to assert itself.
(Labour Gazette rage 825 June 1954)"
Mow, at the same time at a Conciliation Board
hearing between Teamsters Local 31 and the A.T.A. it was stated
on behalf of the employers that any further increase in costs
would result in loss of traffic to alternate modes of transport
(railways).
The Union is entitled to ask what would be the end
result if we took these arguments seriously. Since the various
carriers cannot or will not agree which mode of transport is most
logical for a given type of traffic there can be only one result -
A rate cutting war with the employees groomed for the unenviable
role of the "man in the middle". Nor would the various carrers
be any better off in the lon^ run if ability to pay were to be adjudged
a compelling consideration. The Union believes in this instance
that the effects on the Comapnies should be allotted little or
no- priority. We ask only that the Board recommend a wage that
is in proper relationship with other work of comparable difficulty
in the local market.
The Union has attempted to show the Board that their
requests are both reasonable and justified and in conclusion we
express hope that you will make your recommendations accordingly.

HISTORY OF DISPUTE
The dispute which has resulted in the appointment of
the Honourable Board arises from a request for increased wages and
-overtime rates submitted by the Seafarers' International Union of North
America, on behalf of certain unlicensed personnel in the deck and
engine room departments of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company
(B.C.C.S.S.), Canadian National Steamships, and in the deck, engine
room, and stewards departments of Union Sttamships Limited.
The total number of persons involved in this dispute
is approximately seven hundred (700).
The present Agreement between the Union and the
Companies involved was effective June 1st, 1953, and was for two years
with a provision for reopening the Agreement after twelve months for
the purpose of discussing wages and overtime rates only.
xhe Union advised the Companies in accordance with the
Agreement that we were desirous of reopening the Agreement to discuss
revisions in wages and overtime rates.
A number of meetings were held and the Union Submitted
the following requests on behalf of the employees:
1. A general wage increase of 12-1/2$ for all employees
governed by these Agreements,
2, An increase in the present overtime rate of 33# per hour, or
from #1.17 per hour to $1.50 per hour.

It will be noted that the "Carrier Princess" is shown
alternately as "Passenger" and "Non-Passenger." This
vessel ia licensed for passengers but we,elected to carry
passengers on certain sailings only, due to staffing required. This is always subject'.'to'review. If it is found
that "live" or powered units are offering, we can advertise
that sailing far them.
The sailing which may be the most helpful for the heavy
Horseshoe Bay-Departure Bay route would be our 0400 sailing
daily of the "Princess of Vancouver." While wa are quite
heavy on this sailing, we can and are prepared to operate
an additional sailing with a chartered vessel in order to
open the 0400 sailing of the "Princess of Vancouver" for
powered units.
Our train concern is to determine the users of the early
morning sailings from Horseshoe Bay. Kan 8t rat ford is
assisting in obtaining this information, and anything you
can do in this regard will be appreciated. We are contacting as many as possible and will use our marketing
methods to reach as many as possible.
In the meantime, Ray, we should keep in touch, and X
shall be pleased to provide any further information required. Please refer any enquiries direct to us.
Thank you for your assistance Ray.

Before going on to make comparisons with the rates
of pay of unskilled workers in the Vancouver area the Union would
like to make the following observation.
We submit that if a man is to make a career of seafaring then his wages,  exclusive of board,  should be sufficient to
support some form of a home ashore, unless we are to presume that
seafaring is a celibate profession.    Therefore we submit that we
are entitled to compare the wages received by the  seamen with
those of workers ashore.

dividends have been paid regularly but meagerly, a wage
increase will cause the dividends to decrease and discourage
the investment of additional capital needed for expansion.
If fair dividends and capital expansion have been regular,
a wage increase would cause earnings to drop below the
accepted level, and, since the stock-holders are never
allowed to earn more than about 6%,  it is argued that
they should have a reasonable guarantee of that amount.
Furthermore, the terms "exorbitant" and "smaller
profits" do not rest easily on a 6%  or smaller profit figure,
nor can jubilation be engendered among employees over the
prospect of dividing part of it into wages. The "ability to
pay" criterion has strategic versatility of a high order from
a management point of view.
The "loss of traffic to alternate modes of transport" argument particularly intrigues the Union. In the
report of the Board in the dispute between C..S.R, and
C.P.R. and sixteen International Railway Brotherhoods we
find the following:
"As a result of these recent rail traffic trends,
we are now more strongly than ever of the opinion
that the long succession of general freight increases,
mainly due to added costs of labour which is the largest
single factor and to increased costs of materials, has
brought about a loss of traffic by the railways to
competing modes of transport not only of traffic which
the railways form.rly regarded as vulnerable because it

Further to my letter of October 3, and your conversation with my.
office concerning constables on duty on the "Princess of Vancouver"
after rock concerts in Vancouver.
In view of the fact that there was serious theft and vandalism aboard
our vessel following a rock concert on the night of November 1, I am
afraid that we. will have to reconsider our attitude that interest in
these events is either waning or that they are drawing a better behaved
..crowd.
It appears too that we cannot rely on the information supplied by 'the
Concert Box Office who advised us that the corcert scheduled for .
November 1 would not draw more t.ian 3,000 people, hence the services
of a constable was not requested.
Kill you kindly arrange to have constables attend the "Princess of

Recent discussions with Mr. R. Kerr, Division Engineer, Vancouver,
has indicated that a portion of the dock at the seawall between
Pier "B" end "A" needa replacing and one proposal being considered
la to utilise lend fill. It la felt that if land fill ia used, the
fill will run out beyond what is now the face of the seawall berth , '
thus restricting the use of the berth for ahipa of the size la service
in B.C.C.S.S. Aa layover bertaing facilities are already limited, the
loss of this seawall berth will create considerable problems, now
intensified by the need to berth the "Princess Patricia" in Vancouver
on a continuing basis since having closed out our Victoria operetion.
It is, therefore* submitted that a mooring facility may be constructed
