UBC, association sign
revised framework pact
UBC's administration and the
Faculty Association have signed a
new, five-year framework agreement
for collective bargaining outside the
Labor Code of B.C.
The revised agreement, which
replaces one in force since December,
1975, was signed on April 3 by UBC
and Faculty Association representatives following a mail ballot conducted by the association, which saw
faculty members vote 665-28 in favor
of approval.
The new agreement provides,
among other things, for:
• Simplification of bargaining procedures between the University and
the association on salaries, fringe
benefits and other items with
economic implications;
• Expansion of the faculty
bargaining unit to include full-time
sessional lecturers employed by UBC
for at least eight months for the purpose of negotiating salaries and fringe
benefits; and
• Changes in the structure and
terms of reference of joint University -
association committees provided for
under the agreement for collective
bargaining on non-academic matters
and for consideration of grievances by
faculty members.
Under the previous collective agreement, UBC and the association began
bargaining on economic issues on May
31 for the year commencing July 1 of
the next calendar year, which meant
that salaries and other economic matters might be settled before the
University had formulated its budget
for the next fiscal year.
The new agreement, however, provides  for  consultation  only  between
UBC gets
Three important collections of
papers and other materials related to
the forest industry of British Columbia
have been given to the University.
The International Woodworkers of
America and former IWA president
Harold Pritchett have donated notes,
correspondence files, photographs,
minutes of meetings and various other
documents reflecting the history and
development of the IWA and its
predecessor labor organizations in the
forest industry from about 1925 to the
present day.
The University has also recently
received the Humbird Family Papers,
which consist of minute books, financial records and other materials
relating to the operations of the Victoria Lumber and Manufacturing Co.
Ltd., of Chemainus, B.C.
The Humbird Papers were donated
to the University by Virginia Humbird
Dickey, the daughter of the late
Thomas J. Humbird and the granddaughter of John Humbird, the two
principal figures in the operations of
the Vancouver Island firm from 1890

the University and the association if
the association chooses to submit by
May 15 a written brief on salaries,
fringe benefits and other items with
economic implications on which it
may desire to negotiate for the year
commencing on July 1 of the next
calendar year. Actual bargaining will
not take place until March 1 for the
year commencing on the following Ju-
lv 1.
If agreement has not been reached
on all items within three weeks of the
University being officially notified of
its operating grant by the Universities
Council, the matters in dispute will be
submitted to an arbitrator, whose
decision will be final and binding on
both parties.
A new clause under the section on
arbitration says that the arbitrator is
not entitled to reject an argument by
the University that it is unable to pay
on the grounds that it is an institution
deriving a substantial part of its funds
from government.
The inclusion of full-time sessional
lecturers under the agreement for the
purpose of negotiating salaries and
fringe benefits only will add 60-65
teachers to the bargaining unit, which
totals about 1,900 persons.
The agreement also makes provision for a part-time tenured faculty
member to remain in the bargaining
unit if his or her status is changed
from that of a full-time to a part-time
The structure and terms of
reference of joint committees to settle
disputes in bargaining on non-
academic matters and to deal with
grievances by faculty members have
also undergone changes under the new
The section on collective bargaining
on non-economic matters now provides that a committee decision will
have the force only of a recommendation when it involves either: the
criteria and procedures for termination of employment or lay-off of
bargaining unit members for financial
exigency; or a continuing financial
commitment by the University.
Under the section of the agreement
dealing with grievances, a grievance
committee now has the power to annul
decisions on which the grievance is
based when it finds that an established
policy or procedure has been contravened and an injustice has thereby
The matter is then referred back to
the appropriate faculty or department
or to the president for reconsideration, together with any recommendations the committee thinks appropriate.
Another new clause of the agreement provides for its termination if
the association is certified as a
bargaining agent for faculty members
at the University in accordance with
the Labor Code of B.C. or under
other legislation establishing a system
for collective bargaining. Provincial
legislation now excludes university
teachers from the provisions of the
B.C. Labor Code.
A key clause carried over from the
previous agreement prohibits strikes
by the association and lockouts of
members of the bargaining unit by the
UBC's retiring dean of Science, Prof. George Volkoff, left, heartily approves
of the appointment of Prof. Cyril Finnegan of the zoology department as his
Retiring dean happy
about his successor
"In a sense, he reminds me of Walter Gage because he's married to the University. He's a workaholic who never takes
holidays. More important is the fact that he's an upright
character with strongly held principles."
That's how George Volkoff, who retires on June 30 as dean of
the Faculty of Science, describes his successor, Prof. Cyril
Finnegan, a 21-year member of the UBC faculty whose appointment as dean of Science was approved by the Board of Governors at its April meeting.
And Dean VolkofFs opinions about his successor aren't based
on conjecture or hearsay. For the past seven years — in fact, as
long as George Volkoff has been dean — he's worked closely
with associate dean of Science Cyril Finnegan.
"In fact," says George Volkoff with a grin, "I could have saved
the University months of committee work and money if they'd
asked me who was the most suitable candidate for the job. I
would have told them he was in my own office."
The charge that he spends too much time on University affairs elicits a simple reply from dean-elect Finnegan: "It
depends on whether the goal is worthy of the effort. I feel the
University is." Then he adds, with a grin, "It also keeps me out
of trouble."
It's difficult to imagine Cy Finnegan having the time to get into trouble considering the fact that, in addition to his teaching,
research and administrative work as associate Science dean, he
appears to have sat on every University committee of any importance over the past two decades.
A simple listing of his committee work runs to three typewritten pages and includes membership on several bodies to select
deans and heads of departments, endless presidential ad hoc
and advisory committees on everything from union negotiations
to student services and traffic and parking as well as joint UBC-
Faculty Association committees to consider such things as outside professional activities and redundancy and demographic
change in faculty.
His other activities over the years have included: six years as a
member of UBC's Senate, where, in addition to becoming
famous for his wit, he has chaired the sensitive admissions committee  that  recommends on  standards of admission  to the

University; chairmanship of the faculty fund-raising committee for the
Aquatic Centre; and a five year stint
(1969-73) as defensive coach of the
UBC Thunderbird football team
under the late Frank Gnup.
None of these activities has caused
him to neglect his teaching and
research duties as a member of the
Department of Zoology. He's the
author or co-author of some 25 papers
on embryology that have appeared in
leading learned journals. Within the
field of embryology, he's specialized in
amphibians, chiefly salamanders, the
eggs of which he collects on field trips
in the Lower Mainland.
Being a dean won't keep him out of
the classroom, either. He plans to
teach a section of Biology 100 next
Born in the New England state of
New Hampshire, Cy Finnegan
attended Bates College in Lewiston,
Maine, before and after World War
II, in which he served in the U.S. Army. After receiving his Bachelor of
Science degree at Bates, he enrolled at
the University of Notre Dame in the
American midwest, where he got both
his Master of Science and Doctor of
Philosophy degrees and, in his spare
time, became "a tramp athlete," as he
puts it.
Before joining the UBC faculty in
1958, Cy Finnegan taught at Wabash
College in Indiana, St. Louis University in Missouri and at Notre Dame.
He doesn't anticipate there will be
any dramatic changes in the office of
the dean of Science "until I've had a
chance to sit and think a while about
As associate dean for the past seven
years, Cy Finnegan has been responsible for dealing with the knottiest of
student problems that are referred to
him by the faculty's two assistant
deans, Prof. Nathan Divinsky
(Mathematics) and Prof. Ted Danner
of Geological Sciences, overseeing
changes in the curricula of the nine
departments that make up the faculty,
and consulting with his counterparts
in other faculties on problems that inevitably arise because of the fact that
Science is a service faculty offering
courses to students from other areas of
the University.
If you ask Cy Finnegan what all this
non-stop activity has taught him, he
has a single-word reply: "patience."
Whether you're working with
salamanders or human beings, he
adds, you have to consider the infinite
variability of living organisms and
simply wait for things to happen.
When he isn't involved in University
activities, Cy Finnegan is usually attending sports events or watching
them on television. He's a Montreal
Canadians fan, "except when they're
playing the Boston Bruins, and I
predict that this year the Boston Red
Sox will win the American League
pennant and the World Series."
And when he isn't doing any of the
above things, Cy Finnegan says he
tries to keep track of the comings and
goings of his nine children, six of
whom still live at home.
One of the things that pleases
George Volkoff most about the appointment is that there will be no
"breaking-in period" required.
"We've   kept   no   secrets   from   each
other over the past seven years," he
adds, "and I can relax for the next
three months because Cy knows where
all the files are."
When George Volkoff leaves his office for the last time as dean of Science
on June 30 it will mark the end of a
45-year association with UBC as a student (1930-36), teacher and
researcher (since 1946), head of the
Department of Physics (1961-71) and
dean of Science (since 1972).
Leaving UBC, however, won't mean
severing himself from his discipline.
He's accepted an invitation to edit one
of the many Russian journals of
physics which are published in cover-
to-cover English translations by the
American Institute of Physics.
For many years, Prof. Volkoff has
himself been translating Russian-
language articles on physics for institute journals and he's now editor of
the one entitled Reports on Progress in

to 1950, when the company's operations were wound up.
The third collection of papers has
been donated to the University by
Chauncey D. Orchard, a former chief
forester of the province.
A spokesman for the division of
special collections of the UBC
Library, where the collections will be
housed, said they provide a rich source
of information of historical
significance on the operations of
various aspects of the B.C. forest industry, particularly that of organized
labor, which is basically the early
history of the labor movement in
western Canada.
The IWA-Pritchett collection includes minute books of the union committee, chaired by Mr. Pritchett, that
staged a strike at Fraser Mills in 1931.
It was the first major strike in the
forest industry in western Canada and
was decisive in strengthening union
activity throughout the industry.
Another part of the collection contains valuable material on the 1934
loggers strike on Vancouver Island,
which saw some 700-800 forest industry workers converge on Campbell
River for several months. The strike
led to an increase in the minimum
wage established by the provincial
The IWA-Pritchett Papers have
been given to the University under the
terms of a memorandum of agreement
approved by UBC's Board of Governors. The agreement is between UBC
and The International Woodworkers
of America Regional Council No. 1.
In accordance with the wishes of the
donors, access to the IWA-Pritchett
Papers will be restricted for 10 years to
researchers who obtain the permission
of the IWA and Mr. Pritchett. At the
conclusion of the 10-year period, the
collection will be open to any qualified
scholar engaged in serious research
and any literary rights that the donors
may have in the documents will terminate.
Mr. Pritchett, who now lives in
retirement in Port Coquitlam, was a
prominent figure in forest union activities in B.C. and the Pacific Northwest for more than two decades. Born
in England in 1904, he began working
in Lower Mainland lumber mills in
He was, at various times, president
of the Shingle Weaver's Union, the
Federation of Woodworkers and
District Council No. 1 of the IWA.
Mr. Pritchett retired from union activities in 1948.
Prof. Robert Kubicek
to head
Prof. Robert V. Kubicek, a UBC
faculty member since 1963 and an expert on British Empire and Commonwealth history, is the new head of
the Department of History in UBC's
Faculty of Arts.
The 43-year-old native of
Drumheller, Alberta, will succeed
Prof. Margaret Prang, who is stepping
down as head of the department but
will remain at UBC as a teacher and
Prof. Kubicek is a graduate of the
University of Alberta, where he received the degrees of Bachelor of
Education in 1956 and Master of Arts
in 1958. While a student, he worked
as a newspaper reporter for the Edmonton Journal.
He studied at the London School of
Economics in 1958-59 and taught
school in Calgary in 1959-60 before
enrolling at Duke University, where he
received the degree of Doctor of
Philosophy in 1964.
He is the author of two books
published by the Duke University
Press and a number of articles on
British imperial history. One of his
books is a study of South African goldmine financing for a 28-year period
spanning the 19th and 20th centuries.
More recently he has begun research
on British and European financing of
B.C. mining to 1914.
Prof. Kubicek has been active in
University affairs as a member or
chairman of a number of departmental and dean's committees. He was
president of the UBC Faculty Association in 1971-72 and a founding
member of the Conference of Faculty
Associations of B.C. in 1972.

President Douglas Kenny, left, presented membership
pins in UBC's 25-Year Club to three long-service UBC
employees at a Faculty Club banquet last week. Inducted
into the club were: Edith Allen, second from left, an assis
tant UBC registrar; Marie Porter, a staff nurse in the Student Health Services Hospital; and Kurt Henze, a supervisory technician in the Department of Physiology of the
Faculty of Medicine.
'Quality support staff make UBC go*
High-quality support staff is one of
the things that make the University
go, President Douglas Kenny told a
banquet honoring long-service
employees of the University last week.
The president was addressing the
annual banquet of UBC's 25-Year
Club, at which five employees with 25
or more years of service were made
"I'm often asked what are the things
that make the University go," President Kenny told the gathering. He
said high-quality students and faculty
were two necessary ingredients, "but
equally important are high-quality
support staff. The University is in debt
to you all for the loyalty and dedication you have shown over the years."
The president then presented
25-year pins to:
Edith Allen, one of UBC's assistant
registrars, who joined the Registrar's
Office in 1953 as a stenographer and
was appointed assistant registrar in
Kurt E. Henze, a supervising
technician at UBC who joined the
Department of Physiology in 1954 as a
laboratory technician; and
Marie Porter, a staff nurse in the
Student Health Services Hospital since
Other new members of the club
who were unable to attend last week's
banquet are:
Arthur F. Betts, a member of the
UBC powerhouse staff who joined the
University as a fireman in 1954 and
who was also with the physical plant
department as a maintenance
mechanic; and
Margaret Morley, who retired on
Jan. 31 from her duties as housekeeping assistant with Student Health Services.
There are now 67 members of the
25-Year Club, 29 retired and the rest
still employed at the University.
The new president of the club,
elected at last week's banquet, is Don
Pearce, a technician in Plant Science,
who succeeds Alex Fraser, head
technician in the Department of
Physics. The club's new secretary is
Tom Holness, an area supervisor in
Physical Plant, who takes over from
Alison Law of the Registrar's Office.
Three members of the 25-Year Club
who retired from their duties at the
University recently are: Lloyd Bowers,
a 33-year employee of the University
as a gardener and truck driver;
George T. Kent, who joined the
University staff in 1949 and has been a
senior technician in the pharmacology
department since 1958; and Albert
Boschalk, an area supervisor for the
Department of Physical Plant, who
joined the University staff in 1951 as a
truck driver and tractor operator.
Other members of the Department
of Physical Plant who retired recently
are (year in brackets indicates when
they joined the staff): Martin Pungar
(1955), John W. Nethery (1956),
Gabriel J. Walters (I960), Ruben
Feldstein (1961), Paul W. Milum

and Security Department are
patrolmen William Donald, John
Kostinuk and Walter T. Gibson and
traffic and security supervisor Clifford
J. Clark.
Mildred Bellward, a clerk in UBC's
Student Health Service since 1964,
also retired recently. Carol Hirsman, a
technician assistant at the G.F. Strong
Laboratory since 1959, has taken early
Two members of the University support staff who died recently are: O.C.
Tuck, service worker and icemaker at
the Thunderbird Winter Sports Centre and an employee since 1963; and
James M. Hallow, who joined the

design office supervisor there in 1976.
It will cost
a bit more to
park next year
It's going to cost everyone a little more to park on the UBC
campus bqpoiung Sept. 1.
UBC's Board of Governors approved increases in annual and
casual parking rates at its April meeting to offset increased traffic and security costs.
The new rates approved by the Board are as follows (old rates
in brackets): Faculty, staff and frequent visitors — $45 ($40);
graduate and undergraduate student parking hi preferred lots
— $50 ($26.50); parking in Acadia Camp and at the Waker H.
Gage Residence ~ $11 ($10): general student parking — $9
($8); faculty and staff motorcycles — $11 ($10); student motorcycles - $5 ($4).
The 25-cents-an-hour rate for day parking on the campus remains unchanged hut the all-day rate of $1.50 has been increased to $2. Day rates apply between the hours of 7:30 a.m.
and 5 p.m.
And the Sat rate for night parking on the campus has been
increased from 50 cents to 75 cents. Night rates apply between
the hours of 5 p.m. and 7:30 a.m.
Parking rates on the UBC campus were last increased in
September, 1978.
to UBC aim
of project
UBC has approved the spending of
$159,000 on a two-point program
designed to improve accessibility to
the University for B.C. high schools.
UBC will launch a pilot project this
summer with five high schools chosen
as representative of the various schools
in the province. The schools are Sir
Charles Tupper in Vancouver,
Hazelton Secondary in the Terrace
School District, Lillooet Secondary,
North Peace Secondary in Fort St.
John, and Charleson Secondary in
Ocean Falls.
Representatives of the five schools
have been invited to the UBC campus
this summer to confer with appropriate University personnel at a
planning workshop. A major aim will
be to determine why some students
come on to University while others do
UBC also will provide special $750
bursaries for two students from eaCh
of the five high schools. The awards
will be made on the recommendations
of the schools to students who might
not normally have the financial
resources to go to the University.
As the second point in the new accessibility program, UBC will expand
its distribution of printed and audiovisual material to secondary schools
throughout the province, including
special material aimed at low-income
As part of this plan, selected
students now in Grades 8 and 9 will be
invited to visit the University, since
studies have shown that it is at this
point in their school careers that
students generally decide about post-
secondary education. UBC will also
arrange for students at the University
to visit their former high schools to
provide information to prospective
This two-point program is the second in a series of initiatives taken by
UBC to improve accessibility to higher
education. In February, the University
decided to spend $250,000 over the
next five years on direct grants to low-
income students.
President Douglas Kenny said no
student should be kept out of the
University for financial reasons.

UBC Handicapped Society.
The Crane Library will receive
$7,500 to construct an acoustic
recording centre for the blind at
its headquarters in Brock Hall.
And the handicapped group
will receive $2,000 to aid in providing wheelchair access to the
campus War Memorial Gymnasium.
