Auto, coal agreements reached.

The United Auto Workers has reached an agreement with General Motors, and bargaining has shifted to the Ford Motor Co. A feature of the UAW--GM contract is a job security provision which guarantees that workers with at least 1 year of service will not be laid off because of the introduction of new technology, "outsourcing," negotiated productivity improvements, shifting of work from one GM plant to another, or the consolidation of component production.

The United Mine Workers and the Bituminous Coal Operators Association settled peacefully on a 40-month contract. Union president Rich Trumka said the contract contained "no concessions, absolutely none." An industry official described the contract as "fair and modest."

Detailed provisions of the UAW/Bituminous Coal Operators Association and UAW/GM--Ford agreements will appear in the December Monthly Labor Review.
