Store accord includes two-tier raises.

A provision for two-tier pay increases was included in a settlement between the United Food and Commercial Workers and 47 Bradlees Department Stores in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine. Under the provision, the 3,400 current employees will receive wage increases totaling $1.25 an hour over the 3-year contract term, while those hired after the effective date of the contract will receive increases totaling 70 cents. According to the union, average pay was $4.23 an hour prior to the settlement. All of the employees are in one job classification, clerk/cashier.

The accord also provides for a pension rate of $12 a month (formerly $10) for each year of service and for a possible reopening of negotiations for all 47 stores if Massachusetts enacts an increase in the State's minimum wage.
