Mr. Bob Corbett (Fundy-Royal):
Madam Speaker, effective June 19 the CNCP telegram offices will be closing in Saint John, Moncton, Fredericton, Sydney and Charlottetown, displacing some nine people. A direct conflict has arisen between CNCP and the employees concerning the employment options provided by CNCP, as CNCP wishes to amend a portion of the agreement before taking further action. In view of the fact that the persons involved have between 29 and 40 years of service, I move, seconded by the hon. member for York-Sunbury (Mr. Howie):
That the House urge CNCP to deal fairly with these workers and provide the job security agreement options they have enjoyed since 1962 and funded by the very employees now being denied these benefits.
