Accord at 3M.

Minnesota Mining & Manufacturing Co. (3M) and Local Nos. 6-75 and 6418 of the Oil, Chemical and Atomic Workers signed a new 3-year collective bargaining agreement, covering about 1,700 production and maintenance workers at plants in St. Paul and Grove, MN. (Workers at the facilities make tapes, adhesives, abrasives, film, and magnetic products.)

Terms provide for wage increases of 55 cents an hour in the first year and 50 cents an hour in the second and third years for production workers; and 70 cents an hour in the first year and 65 cents an hour in the second and third years for craftworkers. (At the expiration of the prior contract, workers reportedly earned between $12 and $18 an hour.) Other terms include optional supplemental life insurance benefits at the employee's expense; and changes in the health care plan, including a switch from a lifetime maximum ($3,500) to an annual cap ($1,000) in dental expenses.
