Nabisco sets pattern in baking industry.

More than 9,000 employees of Nabisco Brands, Inc., were covered by a new 2-year contract that was expected a set a pattern for other workers in the biscuit and cracker portion of the baking industry. The accord, negotiated by 13 locals of the Bakery, Confectionery and Tobacco Workers and covering about 30 facilities in 13 States, provides for three wage increases totaling 50 cents an hour during the first year. At the beginning of the second year, September 1, 1986, the workers will receive a $1,000 lump-sum payment.

Other terms included a $50 a month increase in Nabisco's payment to the pension fund, resulting in a $50 increase (to $650) in the normal pension; complete company financing of health benefits (previously, its obligation was fixed at $276.03 a month per worker); increased shift premiums; an improved funeral leave provision; and accelerated pay progression for new employees.
