carrying GEO members w e r e

Joining the union costs only
two dollars. And that raises the
question of why more of the
workers are not GEO members
now.
IT SEEMS, therefore, that a
key reason for the strike ap".
proval was not a massive out-
,ouring of new GEO support,
but rather a re-definition of
what constituted a mandate
necessary for work stoppage.
Admittedly, 159 more people
voted for a strike this time
around, which represents an in-
crease of nearly a third over
last February's pro-strike total.
However, that is only about a
seven per cent increase meas-
ured against the total graduate'
employe population legally rep-
resented by GEO.
WHEN THE original strike

vote failed, the then-GEO lead-
ers blamed the loss on poor
publicity and inability to com-
municate directly with many
research and staff assistants,
who spend a good deal of time
cloistered from the academic
community's mainstream.
To some extent it was a valid
claim. The strike talk last Feb-
ruary had been brewing for only
a short while and never really
had a chance to boil-over in
many quarters.
And the GEO was not a cer-
tified union then which may
have kept a number of em-
ployes from backing its actions
whatever their personal feelings.
NOW, THOUGH, neither of
those rationales can e x p 1 a i n

A majority of graduate em-

a g a i n s t union membership,
again chose not to vote. It is
very difficult to read such a
sign. They could be the disin-

ardent anti-union, the "wait-and-

any shade in between.

she pointed out, women account
for 95 per cent of all the office
and clerical workers.
"This is a reflection of so-
ciety at large and can be
changed only by a movement
for greater flexibility on part of
all academic women."
Her statement echoed the
feelings of Eunice Burns,
Chairwoman of the Commission
for women.
BEFORE introducing Power,
Burns commented, "We will be
more effective if we work to-
gether instead of as individ-
uals. One of the functions of
the Commission is just trying to
get, the attention of women."
Some of the needed flexibil-
ity has been brought about by
the creation of such things as
the Women's Studies courses,
the Center for the Continuing
Education of Women, and a
group the Affirmative Action
program, according to Burns.

Another problem cited by
Mueller is that of part-time em-
ployment. Many women want
to teach as well as have an ac-
tive domestic life, and she con-
tends that employers tend to
discriminate against these peo-
ple.
THIS PROBLEM was also
.r. discussed by the last speaker,
Caroline Davis.
Davis, formerly the only wo-
man dean at the University (of
the Nursing School), is now As-
sociate Vice President for Aca-
demic Affairs.
Reflecting a little on her own

educated research chemist and
tax lawyer was education sec-
retary in the 1970-74 Conserva-
tive government.
She said she had telephoned
her oil executive husband, Denis
Thatcher, with the news only to
find he knew it already from
news reports.
In the first leg of the Tory
leadership race last week she
toppled Heath. This time she
defeated four others, receiving
146 votes against 79 for her
closest rival, William Whitelaw,
and thus capturing an outright
majority of the 276-member
Tory caucus in the Commons.
"THIS IS a staggering thing
for the Conservative party,"

said Laborite Shirley Williams,
like Thatcher a product of Ox-
ford's Somerville College. "I
can't help admitting being
pleased to see that in the Toy
party, of all parties, a woman
has broken through."
Renee Short, another Laborite,
said: "There is a lot of preju-
dice against women in this place
and she has shown just what
can be done."
Whitelaw, who had been the
betting favorite to win until the
last hours of the race, said: "I
congratulate her. She will have
my full support and I am sure
the party will unite behind her."
