December 6, 1979

Hon. Lincoln M. Alexander (Minister of Labour):

I just do not understand, Mr. Speaker, why the hon. member does not understand the procedure under the collective bargaining process, and in particular part V. As I indicated to him, the collective bargaining process calls for the intervention of a conciliation commissioner. He can only do what he is allowed to do under the law; that is, when a settlement has not been reached, he can prepare a report and make recommendations for settlement. Until the report reaches my desk and until it is given to the parties involved, the hon. member knows that any contravention of the process within part V of the act calls for no disruption.

The hon. member will have to be patient. Unfortunately, it is a serious matter. I am very concerned, not only about the women involved but about the men involved and the workers in general. We have to wait until we receive the report of the conciliation commissioner, Mr. Tremblay, in terms of the recommendations and, hopefully-I say "hopefully"-the parties involved will accept the recommendations that will be put before them.

Mr. Alexander:

With the consent of the House, would be hon. member allow one short question? 1 wonder whether he could advise the House if his particular constituency is involved with Canada Works, and to what extent in terms of dollars. I just wanted to know whether he had been excluded or included.

Hon. Lincoln M. Alexander (Minister of Labour):

Mr. Speaker, this matter has been under serious consideration for some time. As I understand it, in 1977 a decision was made with respect to the collective bargaining rights of fishermen under part V of the Canada Labour Code. It was found that they did not have any, and accordingly representations were made and hearings were held with the fishermen and with the industry.

1 understand there have been consultations with the provinces because of the question of jurisdiction. Interdepartmental studies have been undertaken. I hope to have a report in the very near future, when I will advise the hon. member of what action will be taken.
