This includes full pay for one year when sick and then a sal- ary continuance plan to age 65 which pays 65 per cent of salary. There is no insurance policy or money returned to the city. The union employees now get 13 weeks at 85 per cent of pay but .must pay to the city per week which- is received from an insurance policy. The work- ers now pay a premium of per month. After 13 weeks, the employee gets only per week, ceived from the insurance pol- icy. The city proposed plan would give employees 85 per cent of gross pay for' 26 weeks, wiih the workers returning per week to the eity from the in- surance plan. For the increase in payment of the insurance policy, the employee, will have to pay per month more. The city will pay the other necessary for coverage. After 26 weeks, the employee receives only per week from the insurance policy. The rest of the sickness and accident fringe benefits pro- posed by the city for Local 70 are the same as non-union staff. They include a shared medi- cal plan, double annual group insurance, and a shared pay- ment to Canada Pension Plan and the local authorities pen- sion plan. The union is asking for three weeks annual vacation for members after the first calen- dar year of employment and four weeks after the fifth year of employment. The city has proposed two weeks vacation after the first year, three weeks after the fifth year and four weeks after the 15th year employment. The present system of an- nual vacations for union, mem- bers gives workers two weeks after the second calendar year of employment, three weeks in the sixth year, and four weeks to the 16th. year of employ- ment. Wages, which union officials have stated as being less im- portant than adequate fringe benefits in this dispute, would be-increased on a seven-seven- sdx per cent basis by the city proposal.
