A&P settlements.

A&P settlements

More than 9,000 clerks and meat department employees of about 125 A&P supermarkets in northern New Jersey and in Westchester and Rockland counties in New York are covered by a new agreement negotiated by Local 1776 of the Food and Commercial Workers. The 42-month pact provides for a $90 increase (to 285) in the monthly company payment to the health and welfare fund for each full-time employee to maintain the current level of benefits. These benefits are fully funded by the company, and were the key issue in the negotiations.

Other important contract provisions were:
 *Wage gains of $85 to $95 per week
 over the life of the contract: $95 for
 meat department managers, to $790;
 $90 for journeyman meatcutters and
 apprentice butchers, to $731; and
 $85 for top-rated clerks, to $61 1.
 *Wage increases of $1.35 an hour for
 part-timers at the top rate of the wage
 progression, and a $2.35 hourly increase
 for part-timers not at the top.
 Paid jury duty leave for part-timers,
 as well as I day of paid leave to
 attend the funeral of family members.
 *A $600 increase (to $1,350) in the
 maximum monthly pension for future
 retirees. Employees retiring in
 the near future, who would not benefit
 from the new maximum, will receive
 two flat increases in the
 monthly pension, totaling, by the
 end of the contract, $100 per month
 for employees retiring at age 62 with
 35 years of service, and $150 for
 employees retiring at age 62 with 40
 years of service. Pensions for part-time
 workers were increased by $70
 per month, to $280.
