Teamsters-California processors, growers settle.

The Teamsters union negotiated similar agreements with two California firms for food, canning, warehousing, and distribution employees. The 3-year agreement with California Processors Inc. for 25,000 employees at 28 operations in Northern California provides for 3-percent wage increases in each year (except 15 cents an hour for new employees in two low job grades) and for an 8-centan-hour increase in the company's financing of pensions.

The agreement with Tri/Valley Growers for about 9,000 employees at 12 operations in the same area provides for three annual wage increases averaging 2.5 percent, consisting of a 1.8-percent increase for entry-level employees and a 3-percent increase for employees in upper grades. The agreement also calls for a 7-cent-an-hour increase in Tri/Valley's financing of pensions, and for employees to begin making a contribution to the health insurance plan if costs exceed a new limit.
