Moderate terms allow plant to modernize

The H.J. Heinz Co.'s Heinz U.S.A. Division announced a $90 million modernization of operations in Pittsburgh, PA, after members of United Food and Commercial Workers Local 325 approved a "moderate" 5-year contract. The 1,000 food preparation employees had been informed that the conversion was vital to revive the factory and avert a steady decline in production and jobs. Despite the settlement, the bargainers still expected about 250 jobs to be lost during the modernization.
