-Wo,rker unrests at Waterloo

University of Waterloo Waterloo, Ontario volume 15, number 5 friday, june7, 1974

Joe Sheridan left his work with the university janitorial ’ department one day before he was to be accepted as a fuUtime member of the staff. He &ought accusations * against the union and the work conditions. In the following interview Sheridan explains his reasoning and his actions. Why did you leave your position in the janitorial staff of the gym of this university? Sheridan: I didn’t think I could stand by any longer and watch what was being done to my fellow workers in the shop, and.1 was a person who could do something about it. All my fellow workers were very dependent upon their jobs, I needed mine less than they. The situation needed to be brought to the attention of the union here, and the ‘other workers in the university . When the building first opened, there -were ‘ten or eleven people working there and when I left they had cut that down to five or six. The workload was just ridiculous, and especially on top of the new shift that we were being made to work. Chevron: How did the shift change come about? Sheridan :’ Apparently, from what I understand, the lead-hands wanted the shift changed from the ten-tosix to the six-to-two shift, because it was easier to sleep if you worked that shift. When the union officials explained the shift change to the workers, they neglected to point out that we would be losing eight dollars -a month in pay by the change. That was not known until , the change came. They held a ballot or election for people to make a choice between the two shifts. It was not a secret ballot and what happened was that the lead-hands who really wanted this change looked over peoples’ shoulders when they were filling out their ballots. I was watched by my lead-hand, Mike Ballan, when I filled out the card. I haven’t talked to anyone since the change who likes it. Some of us have to walk home at night, and that takes at least one hour. The buses don’t run after midnight and, unless you have a car, that means you have to, walk--since with the wages being paid here, you can’t afford a taxi. I’ve seen lots of workers walking home. But the worst of it is the way it affects the workplace. Especially in the gym the new shift is just not workable. The building is open for use until eleven at night, which means that any cleaning we do before that time is useless-it is just dirtied up again. So we wind up having to do the most cleaning in the last three hours-and that leads to poor results. Add that to the fact that there are less people to do all that work’ and you have a pretty messy situation. Chevron : Couldn’t your com‘plaints have been. taken through the usual channels, your shopsteward to the union and settled, perhaps-, in that way rather than you having to leave? Sheridan: In a* normal situation that would have been the case, but there are some peculiarities to this case. In my shop the shop-steward turned out to be the lead-hand as well. The lead-hand gets twentyfive cents an hour more than the ‘other workers, tells the other workers what to dEs, and when to do it-he is well on his way to \becoming a management, foreman. Chevron:

I have never heard of such a thing happening, where the leadhand who is to all intents -and purposes, management, is also your union representative. Of course, that is ~ handy for management because then the. workers have little hope for representation or any way to complain about anything. Also, I was still within the university’s ‘probation’ period-a time when the worker has little or. no rights. I was not told about anything-and did not find out about the shop-steward until I had been working there for a couple-of months. No one showed me the contract between CUPE (Canadian Union of Public Employees) and the university until I had been there a long time. It seems to be university policy and union negligence keeping the workers in the dark about as much as possible. ’ Also, a problem in this particular case was that a large number of my complaints were directed towards Mike Ballan the lead-hand and shop-steward, So I obviously could not bring the complaint through him to the higher union officials. Chevron : What did you have against your lead-hand? Sheridan: He never did much work; the hardest thing I ever saw. him do was refill the soap dispenser in a washroom-and that is usually only a once-weekly job. On many occasions he used outright intimidation and sexist cruelty, always entertaining the shop with his higher position and “freedom of speech”. It was simple to see we needed rank and file control to deal with all the problems all the time, but &he guidelines of the set-up were just like those of the management studies programme on campus, so -only the few in the union could represent you and in that way they could corrupt them with their false concern. They are only interested in working us harder, cheaper and keeping us ignorant. Chevron: What did you do on your last day of work, that made you think they would fire you? Sheridan : Thelead-hand put me on a job that I had only done. once before and told me to get it done in this really short length of time, but I started on it. Before I checked into the gym I circulated a letter I had typed-up to some of my fellow workers. I did not reach everyone but tried to get the most that I could. It was a letter of complaints and a demand for an investigation. But nothing was said to me by the lead-hand. Some time after I started to work that night, I got really angry at the lead-hand for what he was doing. He was manageme,nt in the shop, stooling on all of us. c . I went into one of the’ offices, called the union president I,arry McGlone and told him what had been going on down here. He seemed pretty excited on the phone and said he would be right over. He showed up an hour later in a totally diffe,rent frame of mind. He seemed to have lost most of the spirit he had had, he asked me a few questions, then asked the


F&e increase -fi,nal

The Federation of Students *finally got its three dollar increase which will raise * the compulsory student activity fee to twenty-five , dollars, after a lengthy debate at last Tuesday’s board of governors meeting. Bruce McKay and Steve Eady, . both acclaimed student representatives on the board of governors, voted against the fee increase on the grounds that not enough warning had been given to the student body. According to McKay, the ‘vast majority of . students did not know about this ’ I fee increase.’ Andy Telegdi, Federation ’ president, countered McKay’s argument by saying that all student faculty societies knew about the increase and that the request was unanimously passed at the last students council meeting. He further added, when asked for the reason .for such an increase, that the federation’s activities had greatly expanded since 1967, time of the last fee raise. McKay also wanted to know why the federation fee was compulsory . instead of voluntary as in the case of the student faculty societies. His . question was answered by Burt Matthews, university -president, who pointed out that students two years ago had overwhelmingly endorsed the federation’s compulsory fee in a campus wide referendum.

Campus gourmets who have learned to their dismay of the recent price hikes at the Federation of Students.’ campus centre ice-cream stand, may be comforted to learn that the increase is not the result of -the federation’s corporate profiteering. In fact, the new prices have come despite an increased subsidy for this vital service. Ice-cream cones, which for- ’ merly cost 15, 20 and 25 cents for the one, two and three scoop’sizes respectively, will be sold for 20, 30 and 40 cents. In addition, several of the more expensive flavours (Neilson’s ‘Supreme’ line > will no longer be available.Some observers believe that the size of each scoop provided at the stand are now smaller than they were previously. According’ to a well-placed source within the federation, the increases result from both an increase in price from the supplier, and a raise in pay last for the stand’s operator, Sharon Walker. At the old prices, the chevron’s source said,.the stand last year lost about $3000 more than its budgeted $500 deficit. This year, with the increased prices, and the subsidy doubled to $1000, it is hoped that the operation will be able to stay within its budgetary bounds. If this is not feasible, it will probably be terminated, and ,Food Services’ plastic ice-cream monopoly will reign once more.

For the last month or so, theComputing Centre has been moving pieces of computer hardware around the room like they were little squares in one of those grid puzzles with only one free slot. The only problem was that, when they started, they didn’t have a free square. According to _Computer CentreDirector Paul Dirksen, the aim of all the pushing and shoving is put all the tape drives and mountable disk drives together and to prepare for the arrival of a rented IBM 370158 in August. ,Until this week; there were some ’ fears, at least on the part of management sf the computing Centre, that delivery of the new machine might be delayed up to a year by the university adI ministration. Burt Matthews told that he had called for a “review” of the scheme because projections showed there would be less usage, owing to the fact that users now have to pay for the Computing Centre’s services, and because ‘costs have gone up. He said that IBM rental increase had added ‘fabout $135,000” to the fiy? year cost of the new machine and that the Data ‘Processing Centre required an additional $250,000, again over fiti years for addition peripheral equipment, including a printer, tape drives and disk

His resignation will take effect on June 30 at which time he intends to go away for ,a *year or so and then return to Waterloo to teach civil engineering. Sherbourne has spent, in many ways, a very sudcessful eight years in his administrative position-seeing Waterloo engineering grow to be one of the largest .in Canada and to be the most innovative with its cooperative program. Of course, Sherbourne humbly states that%0 one is ever satisfied” and that his greatest disappointmeht has b%eri the problem of limiting the size of the engineering department.

American Gulf Oil uses the rich oil beds of Angola for oil to export to Canada. In Angola alone, there‘are at least twenty-five companies . from the United States of Americathree of which are diamond speculators. And besides Gulf, there are several other oil companies. In 1969 Gulf had invested $130 million dollars in its work in Angola. ‘Production from its offshore field in Angola reached 150,000 barrels per day by the end of 1970. West Germany also has some vested interest in the outcome of the new government and its policies. Krupp industries have invested _a total of $190 million for various projects And of course, there are British and Canadian firms established in the colonies as well. During a period from 1965 to 1967, loans to the ‘public’ of Angola hit the $4,120 million mark. These included $984 million for a bridge over the Tagus, $135 million for the postal service, $851 million for shipbuilding. The Cabora Bassa Dam in Mozambique-to be the largest in Africa, flooding an area of 1,000 square miles - will produce 17 billion kilowatt hours of hydroelectric power. All planned to be cheap power for the RSA. Since the coup, Spinola has either refused to comment on the fate of colonies or has taken to commenting negatively. At one point, Spinola said that “the African countries are not yet ready for independence.” In response, the guerrillas have said the fight will continue until they are approached on an equal basis; representatives of the junta have said that the war with the guerrillas will continue as long as they refuse to seek a political settlement. The junta has been coming up with the usual . piecemeal granting of ‘independence’hence the recent proposal by general Costa Gomez of a loose federal system under which the territories “would enjoy virtually equal statug with metropolitan Portugal.” As for an end to the hostility in the colonies on the principle usual, Lisbon would retain control of defense foreign that they would never win agyway. He also advocated policy and finance; and there is little ‘independence’ left the establishment of a ‘federation’ of countries presently when those are taken. This is much the same idea that making up the Portuguese group.

It may thatrather than give the Africans their freedom through happen that he will find some African leaders willing to _ the federation, they should be content with only a minor sell to capitalism, keeping the companies in the country part in another sort of ‘federation’. . and continue to subjugate the masses. In this way he can seem to give freedom to the African colonies while still / 1 holding onto all that is dear to him and the rest of the waiting western world. Here, he can find Africans that will act like any other governing class. But as far as the liberation movements of Africa are concerned the coup in Portugal has little or-nothing to do with their struggle for freedom. The liberation groups,’ after fighting for fifteen years are not coming out of the jungle to come and sit on a conference table for piecemeal independence.

They want to come out, marching in the streets singing the songs of victory.

Portugal’s colonial history and policies, like those of all imperialist countries, has never ‘been in favour of the colonizced. Worse still, while other imperialists have given .up overt control of their colonies, Portugal has managed to hang onto its “possessions” for five hundred years, with no upward social mobility in the metropole-’ let alone the colonies. Portugal colonialists occupied Morocco and established the first colony of the world in 1415. They travelled southward, setting up colonies along the western coast. While most colonial countries through colonization grew rich, Portugal remained the poorest nation of the western hemisphere. In 1967 the gross national product of the country was a mere $457 million compared to that of Canada-$68 billion. Living conditions of the budding colonialists were grim. As late as i969, out of 2.2-million dwellings in Portugal 12 percent had no kitchen, 72 percent had no running water, 60 percent had no electricity and 62 percent had no sewers. As a result of their colonialization, and the strong resistance of the indigenous people of the areas, Portugal has been fighting wars in its colonies for the past fifteen years. These wars have kept Portugal in constant poverty, as a country and it has only managed to continue the wars through, the aid of other capitalist countries. As a result of the poverty many of the workers have had to leave the country and join Europe’s travelling workforce - hence most of Portugal’s young menare absent,, either through the war or through the voluntary exile. / The strong determination of the African peoples-the liberation movements-with the aid of sympathetic nations and organizations have been able to free large portions of the colonized territories. Despite the sophisticated weapons of the Portuguese, the African people have slowly been winning that war. General Antonio Spinola is the’ latest Portuguese hero-the man that they say has freed them from the yoke of fascism. His career started in the colonial wars and ended a few months ago when he published a controversial book entitled Portugal and its Sk,t~re. Until that time he was a wellrespected product of his military ._country. However, in the book Spinola repeatedly called


’ Undoubtedly, Spinbla has come under pressure--from the Republic of South Africa (RSA) and Rhodesia. The RSA and Rhodesia will not favour a liberal government - their governments are dependant upon apartheid and their close proximity to the Portuguese colonies means they are also counting on those colonies maintaining their apartheid policies. For once there is political freedom for Africans in these colonies,, the guerrilla j warfare of RSA and,Rhodesia would be stepped up-to an intolerable rate- for the Europeans. It is also of utmost importance to- the rest of the , capitalist world that the Portuguese colonies remain open and do not have an opportunity to turn to the ‘left’.

Biology is, by its very nature, a meetingground of many sciences. ‘An understanding of the incredibly intricate mechanisms of life is necessarily dependent on and limited by one’s understanding of the’ physical and chemical laws according to which such mechanisms behave. Thus, twentieth-century biology has spawned a seemingly endless list of branches and subdisciplines: biochemistry, biophysics and bio engineering are all well-known and respectable specialties. Even astrobiologynecessarily a somewhat speculative field- is gradually coming into its own. This generalization holds increasingly true the further one delves into living systems. The broad investigations of Galen and Aristotle did quite well without a refined knowledge of chemistry and physics, and William Harvey was able to describe the circulation of the blood without invoking any but the simplest mechanical principles. - Darwinian evolutionary theory and Mendelian genetics also got on pretty well without- too much help from the physical. sciences, their primarily descriptive approach being at the time sufficient to the task. instrumentation and When improved developed theory finally made it possible to study life in smaller and smaller chunks, however, it soon became’ .apparent that descriptive techniques were no longer enough.

good complements to it, The Rirth Stout No-Work Garden Book, and the organic way to mulching are also by Rodale Press, a leader in thiS area. Ruth Stout is an eighty-year did person who has’ been mulching her garden for approximately forty years. Her whole philosophy to life seems to be that one must enjoy the fruits of the earth but not kill themselves doing it. H&r shortcuts at growing are amazing but quite successful. She shuns scientists and authorities for, to her, there is only so much one can predict. When, one year,’ a whole crop of one vegetable was wiped out she passed it off as an act of nature. No matter how much man tries he can never know all of mother nature’s secrets. Ruth Stout realizes this and reacts accordingly. Her garden. has been visited by m&y experts who were amazed.-- and sometimes perturbed by her success.. She uses the mulches at hand, anything from straw to rocks and succeeds . beautifully. One “trick of the trade” that \ Ruth Stout uses is leaving her turnips and other roots in the garden,‘under a layer of mulch, during the winter, and going out to pull them when they’re -needed. This saves the bother- of having to maintain a large root cellar. Once again she wins by keeping things in accurd with nature .in the earth’s root cellar.. Practicality is a byword of Ruth Stout. She relates her experiences to the reader and hopefully quotes other experienced gardeners in areas where she lacks technical knowledge or experience. This is truly a book for the armchair gardener. In fact, once you put its iuggestions into reality in your garden, you will probably be spending more time in your armchair than you imagined: . The Organic Way to Mulching is much like Ruth Stout’s book, in. essence. It lists a little ‘more technically the different effects that mulch has on soil and crops and the proper way to mulch. A quotation from the book lists /the benefits of mulching as follows: -ripens fruit earlier -keeps garden cool and moist through droughts -rejuvenates tired, old trees -saves you work \-improves the appearance of your garden -keeps weeds down With these three rbooks‘ from Rodale Press it almost seems like child’s play to start and maintain a successful garden. -kati

Selling. England -by the PdundGenesis (WEA FC6060) ’ Genesis is a fairly well established British group that have recorded several albums before Selling England by the Pound.

Either I was totally mistaken or Selling England by the Pound is that one great album that many competent groups are capable of producing but .somehow fail torepeat in their following or previous attempts. Regardless of my initial disinterest of Genesis their latest album, recorded late in 1973, is probably the most innovative album I’ve heard this year.

Mosport is a unique experieice. The racing circuit lies just north of Bowmanville “in the middle of nowhere. As you approach the area there is not the slightest hint given that here among the rolling wooded countryside lies one of North America’s major autoracing circuits. Mile after mile of serene rural surroundings slip by as you drive along. Further onward you begin to distinguish a faintly -a_udible droning and. sputtering in the distance. As you drive on the intensity of the sound increases dramatically. It is the sound of a racing engine violently straining to * reach the limit of its performance. Passing the first signs of the track, the air around your ,$ar becomes electrified by the deafening roar of a Can-Am machine making a qualifying run. Arriving at the entrance gate you now catch a glimpse of the bright screaming machines as they _ streak by just a’ few feet away. Standing up close to the spectator fences you feel a sensation that is hard to describe. . The action on the track provides a mas&e assault on your senses ; ’ your eyes strain to follow the glistening flashes of colour passing by, you’: ears ring with the loud sputtering of the engines, you smell the pungent odor of tires and oil burning away, and your whole body vibrates from the tremendous horsepower being unleashed dn the track. This is what Mosport is all about. On the weekend of- June 14 NIpsport will be staging two major races: the Labatt’s Blue Can-Am and the Labatt’s Formula 5000. Both of these are‘ very ‘prominent among North American races. The Can-Am series involves fullbodies,- racing cars of unlimited engine size. These cars are , monsters with hpwards of 750 horsepower enabling them to reach speeds in”excess of 200 miles per hour. The CanlAm machine is an extraordinary example of engineering sophistication and its popularity /with racing fans rivals that of top-level Formula 1 cars. Unfortunately this will be’ the last year of the unlimited engines. Next year restrjctions on engifle size will result in a tamer level of performance. Nonetheless the. Can-Am series will continue to provide a spectacular display of man and machine working in unison. The Formula 5000 series in.volves open-wheeled racing cars having an engine displac’ement of 5 litres. These cars are very similar in concept to the thoroughbred Formtila 1 cars, and serve as a magnificent examples of the art bf racing car design. The Formula 5000series does not as yet possess all the glamour and polish. of the Can-Am, but the level of competition is intense and the series is rising tremendously in popularity. With the participation of some of auto racing’s international superstar teams and drivers it is expected that Formula 5000 will achieve the status of being the -most - promintint and prestigious racing series in No&h America. Many of you that have never. .attended a race at Mosport may find it hard to relate to what it’s all ,about. Go there next weekend and discover the excitement.. .it’s a spectacular experience that you’ll never forget ! --La.


lptra. I. mura update - Winning at any cost is an often maligned cliche. In Intramurals, participation is more important than winning. An active pa,rticipant is the real winner in. intramurals, -because he is participating for the intrinsic value of activity for the most part and not the extrinsic value of the activity. Whether you cycle, jog, play squash, co-ed slow pitch, you are a winner because you are physically active in sport. Athletic
