Compensation improved for catalog sales workers

In Chicago, 3,100 catalog sales employees were covered by a 3-year settlement between Spiegel Inc. and Teamsters Local 743. Pay, which averaged $8.60 an hour, was increased by 50 cents effective March 1, 1989, followed by increases of 40 cents in March 1990 and 50 cents in March 1991. About 1,300 of the employees will also receive one-time inequity adjustments ranging from 15 to 25 cents an hour.

Benefit changes included a $1 increase in the $10 a month pension for each year of credited service; a $5,000 increase in the $10,000 employer-financed life insurance for employees, along with the addition of $1,500 of optional coverage for the employee's spouse, costing the employee $1 a month; various improvements in health insurance, including coverage under "well baby" provisions, extended care, convalescent care, and provision of social workers; and a new dental plan financed by monthly contributions of $4 by the company, $3.95 by single employees, and $17.75 by employees with dependents.
