California wine workers settle

In California, 1,300 workers were covered by a 3-year agreement between Distillery Workers Locals 45 and 186 and the Winery Employers Assocation, which comprises nine companies in the Modesto and Fresno areas, Wages, which averaged about $10.50 an hour, according to the union, were raised by 50 cents an hour immediately, to be followed by 3-percent increases in the second and third contract years. The parties dropped a provision that guaranteed employee wage rates. The accord also improved health insurance benefits.
