Power company workers get new contract.

In New York State, 8,000 employees of Niagara Mohawk Power Corp. negotiated a 2-year contract. Hourly pay, which averaged $13.331, was increased 5.25 percent retroactive to June 1 and 5.5 percent on June 1, 1985. Benefit revisions included a change in the pension calculation method that will result in increased benefits, and a $100,000 increase (to $400,000) in lifetime major medical coverage for employees. In an unusual provision, employees will receive payments equal to half of any erroneous overcharges they discover in their medical bills.

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers represents virtually all of the workers, with 11 other unions representing the balance.
