Abstract:  This issue of the quarterly news tabloid examines the Postal Strike, a strike by 1,000 members of the York University Staff Association and the seventh conference of the B.C. Council of the Confederation of Canadian Unions. It also reports on a move by U.S. Steelworkers to support a U.S. quota on copper imports. Such a proposal would threaten Canadian jobs. The United Steel Workers of America is the largest American Union in Canada and the article notes an area where there seems to be a rising conflict of interest between forces within the Canadian section of the union. It points out that a similar conflict had arisen earlier with regard to zinc imports although, after hearings, the Tariffs Commission rejected the quota.

The Confederation of Canadian Unions is committed to building a Canadian labour movement independent of U.S. union inference.
