Cleaning firms' contract.

The Maintenance Contractors Association of New England and Local 254 of the Service Employees signed a 3-year master agreement covering about 8,500 cleaning and maintenance workers throughout the State of Massachusetts. The Association bargained for 64 cleaning firms, the majority of which are based in the Boston, MA, metropolitan area.

The contract calls for biannual pay increases of 15 cents per hour, beginning September 1, 1990, yielding a 90-cent-per-hour increase over the term of the contract. (Under the old agreement, the top hourly wage rate reportedly was $6.90.) Other terms include $8 increases each year in employers' monthly contributions to the health and welfare fund (previously, $98 per month) for all employees working at least 29 hours per week, with additional contributions if the fund reserve falls below $2 million; 23-cent-per-hour (previously, 21-cent-per-hour) employers' contributions to the pension fund for all employees working at least 29 hours effective September 1, 1991, and 25 cents per hour effective September 1, 1992; and an immediate $4 increase (to $16) in the monthly pension rate for each year of credited service for future retirees.
