SUPPLEMENTARY ESTIMATES, 1946-47


A message from His Excellency the Governor General transmitting supplementary estimates for the financial year ending March 31, 1947, was presented by Hon. Douglas Abbott (Acting Minister of Finance) and read by Mr. Speaker to the house. Mr. ABBOTT moved that the estimates be referred to the committee of supply.

Mr. GRAYDON:

I have forgotten at the moment whether it is usual to bring down so much so late. This looks almost like our estimates for the next session. I have no objection to having them considered, but I do not wish to allow this stage to go by without at least pointing out to the house exactly what it faces in such a volume as this, called "supplementary estimates." I suggest they should be called regular estimates number two.

Mr. ABBOTT:

Perhaps I might reply to my hon. friend by saying that the major portion of the estimates relate to demobilization and reconversion. As he will see on examining them, a very large portion is taken up by Department of Veterans Affairs, as to which it was impossible to forecast, at the time the regular estimates were prepared, what would be required.

Mr. Speaker, I wonder if I might have the consent of the house to have questions and orders of the day disposed of first and then revert to the debate which was in progress yesterday.

LIB

Mr. MITCHELL: (Minister of Labour)

Liberal

1. Yes, between the Journal Publishing Company of Ottawa, Limited and the international typographical union, local 102, on July 12, 1946, covering the period January 1, 1946 for a term of two years and three months ending March 31, 1948.

2. Yes. Contract provides for wage adjustments, holidays with pay, and pay for statutory holidays, subject to the approval of the war labour board.

3. Yes. Clause 6, disputes and arbitration, reads as follows:

A standing committee of two representatives of the publisher and two representatives of the union shall be appointed. To this committee shall be referred all disputes which may arise as to the construction to be placed upon any clause or clauses of this agreement, or alleged violation thereof which cannot be settled otherwise. Such committee shall meet within five days when any question of difference shall have been referred to it for decision by either party to this agreement. Should the standing committee be unable to agree unanimously within ten days, then it shall refer the disputed clause or clauses to a board of arbitration. The representatives of each party to this agreement shall select two arbiters, the four to agree upon a fifth who shall be a disinterested party, a resident of Ottawa. If the two representatives of each of the two parties to this agreement fail to agree upon the fifth member to complete the board of arbitration, the Ontario Minister of Labour shall be asked to name a fifth member who shall act as chairman. The majority decision of this board shall be final and binding upon both parties and the cost of such arbitration to be borne equally by the union and the publisher. Provided that the local and international laws of the union, which are a part of this agreement, shall not be subject to arbitration, except insofar as such arbitration and the results thereof are compulsory under Canadian laws, or except where said laws specifically permit their submission to arbitration.

Either party to this agreement may notify the other party thirty (30) days prior to the termination date that it desires to negotiate a revision of the terms of this agreement. If such notice is given, it shall signify that the terms of such revision shall become effective immediately upon the termination date herein set forth and, if not agreed upon by that time, shall be retroactive to the said termination date. Failure of either party to notify the other party, as above stated, shall signify that the terms of the present agreement are to remain in full force and effect until thirty (30) days after the date of termination. If negotiations fail to result in a mutual satisfactory settlement, the matter shall be referred to arbitration as specified in the foregoing paragraph. (It is agreed that section 5, article 2, I.T.U. general laws shall not apply to a joint standing committee dispute except as the union laws may be involved, but said section shall apply to arbitration of a succeeding agreement.)
