Greenfield School
Custodians Settle
New Contract

GREENFIELD, Mass.

Greenfield school custodians, members of amalgamated UE Local 274, unanimously ratified a new two-year contract containing a 3 percent wage increase in each year. The custodians were especially happy to reach a settlement given the serious financial problems experienced by the School Dept.

Custodians gain longevity pay for the first time. After 10 years of service each custodian will receive an annual bonus of $50.

The contract also contains a sick-leave bank and an increase in the vacation schedule. Custodians will now be able to convert unused personal days to sick time.

The union negotiating committee consisted of James "Bear" Craig and Gene Warren. They were assisted by UE Field Org. Paul Ryan.
