FIVE-WEEK STRIKE BY YORK COUNTY WORKERS ENDS

 YORK, Pa. Feb. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- York County Children & Youth Services and Area Agency on Aging workers today ratified a new labor contract, ending a nearly five-week-old strike.
 Tom Herman, business agent for the Pennsylvania Social Services Union (PSSU), said labor and management negotiators were to meet later today to discuss back-to-work ground rules and a return date.
 Herman also said details of the two-year contract, which is effective today, would be announced later in the day.
 The contract covers some 90 employees represented by PSSU which is Local 668, Service Employees International Union (SEIU). They had been on strike since Jan. 25.
 "We will now work toward facilitating the healing process and getting back to work," Herman said. "Both sides can claim victories as well as losses. The real losers have been the children and aged in York County."
 The contract provides improved wages for workers at the lower pay scale and also a two-step increase for all employees except those at the higher pay scale.
 Also, the co-pay for health insurance would be waived for the first year for lower scale workers.
