Local 274 Contract
With Literacy Project
Receives Satisfactory Grade

GREENFIELD, Mass.

Contract Settled!

The members of amalgamated UE Local 274 employed by the Literacy Project recently approved their second-ever contract.

The bargaining unit consists of teachers and teacher coordinators; union members teach adult education, including reading, computer skills, math and other subjects.

The Literacy Project is primarily funded by a combination of federal and state grants. As a result, wage increases are negotiated yearly. In this contract teachers receive a $1.10 hourly wage increase; coordinators, $1.50 an hour. The contract contains an increase in the sick-leave bank and other improvements in contract language.

The committee was comprised of Judith Kocik, Margaret Anderson and Brenda Koons. They were assisted by UE Field Org. Paul Ryan.
