The bargaining team negotiated changes improving the Trade Day and overtime assignment provisions.  They ageed to some modifications in the Health Insurance provisions in exchange for 9% increases over the three year agreement, the addition of $.20 shift differential and a new longevity bonus system providing anniversary checks of $500 each year from five to nine years, $1000 each year from ten to fourteen years and $1,500 for fifteen years and thereafter.  The team did an excellent job and forged a great Labor-Management relationship in Trenton.  Jerry Lieb of the Labor Council assisted the team during the negotiations.
