Hotel and restaurant employees settle.

The Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees and the Hotel-Restaurant Employees Council of Southern California negotiated new wage and benefit provisions extending to March 15, 1989. The parties bargained under a wage reopening provision of their previous contract which was scheduled to expire in 1986. The new agreement covered about 10,000 workers in the Los Angeles area and was expected to set a settlement pattern for 2,000 employees of independent hotels and restaurants. It is subject to reopening in March 1988 on wages and health and welfare benefits.

Hotel employees who receive tips will receive pay increases of 5 percent on April 1 of 1986 and 1987. For those who do not receive tips, the increases were 4 percent retroactive to April 1, 1985, and 5 percent on April 1 of 1986 and 1987. Both tipped and nontipped restaurant employees will receive 4-percent increases on April1 of 1986 and 1987.

Other provisions permit employees to pay new workers at 80 percent of regular scale during their first 90 days on the job (previously, they received regular scale immediately), and increase employer payments to the h ealth and welfare trust to $1.05 an hour (from 90 cents) over the term, with additional amounts to be diverted from the scheduled wage increases if needed to maintain benefit levels.
