The Challenge of 1963

Reference to the speaker's address six years ago, placing emphasis on the necessity for greater efforts toward improved labour-management relations. His address today to be considered a progress report. First, a review: the lack of progress. Immediate and long-term problems seen in the developments over the past six years. The issue of automation and unfulfilled promises of a smooth transition. The effects of automation on employment. The incomplete solution of retraining. Looking at education. Canada's situation in relation to world trade, particularly the competition of European countries. Progress in terms of a growing awareness of the fact that something needs to be done to improve labour-management relations. Looking at the European situation. What may or may not work here. Discouragement in the labour force and trade unions. Canada moving forward as an industrial country only in direct relation to the extent that we apply skills and thought in a co-operative way.
