State government settlements.

State government settlements More than 2,400 teachers were covered by a settlement between Minnesota's seven State universities and the inter Faculty Organization. Faculty pay, which had ranged from $19,432 a year for instructors to $47,598 for full professors, will be increased by an average of 5 percent in the first year and 6.36 percent in the second year.

Other important provisions included a compression of the salary schedules, from a four-track system to a two-track system which, according to the union, will allow for more salary advancement without promotion; increases in payments for professional improvement and in study and travel; a $550 increase (to $1,000) in the maximum annual employee contribution to a supplemental retirement fund, which is matched dollar-for-dollar by the State; and elimination of nontenure track positions.

For the first time in their bargaining history, the State of Michigan and the Auto Workers, which represents 22,000 State employees, negotiated an agreement with a duration exceeding 1 year. The 2-year agreement, which covers wages only, provided for two adjustments which will boost average annual pay more than $3,650 during the life of the contract. The increases are 4 percent, or 50 cents an hour, whichever is greater, and will become effective on October 1 of 1990 and 1991. *
