REFRIGERATION AND AIR CONDITIONING SERVICE PHONE 328-4333 City Services Resumed Following 13-Day Strike By RIC SWJHART Herald Staff Writer All city utilities and city-op- erated services were back in operation Monday following the signing of a new two-year contract between the city and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 254 Lethbridge Unit and the Canadian Union of Public Em- ployees, Local 70. D3EW went on strike May 11 and CUPE went on strike May 19. The unions have expressed dissatisfaction with what they term imparity in fringe bene- fits between union and non- union city employees. All city-associated unions are to set up a study committee on fringe benefits and later ap- proach the city with proposed changes. The two main areas of fringe benefits looked at during the strike, according to CUPE offi- cials were sickness and acci- dents benefits and annual va- cations. Union members now are to receive 85 per cent of their pay, which amounts to 94 to 97 per cent of net pay, de- pending on marital status-, for six months and a week for another six months. Fcr this coverage, the em- ployee has to pay a month with the city contributing Previous coverage was 85 per cent of gross pay for '13 weeks and a week for another 13 weeks for which the employee paid a month. The union had asked for par- ity witH non-union employees', who receive full pay for one year and then 65 per cent of salary to age 65. The city and the employee each pays half of 0.65 per cent of their salary for this coverage. Monthly premi- ums paid by the non-union staff vary according to salary with some paying higher premiums than the union staff. PLANS SAME All other sickness and acci- dent plans are the same for union and non-union staff. Union members receive two weeks annual vacation after the first calendar year of em- ployment, three weeks after the fifth and four weeks after the 15th year. Non-union staff receive three weeks vacation after their first calendar .year of employment and four weeks after the fifth. All employees receive 10 days of statutory holidays, with union member receiving over- time pay rates if they work. Non-union staff receive no overtime, while union mem- bers do. In the contract settlement, the city granted the casual em- ployees, members of Local 70, extra sick benefits. A casual employee who has completed 12 months service I tte previous three years an who continues to be employe in some part each calenda year is entitled to sick leav with pay, on production of medical certificate, on the b; sis of one day for each mont worked in the previous year but not exceeding five workin days in one year. Pay for the period of sick ness will be per day if tin workers pay the city a montl ly premium of 50 cents whil employed. Wages played a big part hi the settlements, with the has of negotiations for IBEW bein a journeymen lineman and to CUPE, a laborer. Eight city-employed electr cal journeymen linemen, wh received an hour las year for about a montl will receive an hour re- troactive to Jan. 1. or abou a month.
