The UAW disclosed yesterday Hint informal discussions on the subject, as secret at the contracl negotiations thfinselves, have been held recently. Hut ilit: talks reportedly have hi-en brief so fnr. General Motors declined comment on their nature. The union's National General Motors Council, representing some 350.000 G. M. workers throughout the country, touched off the for cotitiact improvements. Emphasi/mir Hint it was not attempting to reopen Hie mm-re- openable coninu-t. Ihe council said additional benefits were needed (o bring the contract. .shmcd 111 pro- Kerenn Ivfay, ]j)5fj. nbreast of current llvlii!,' conditions. So it ailopled a resolution asking the Industry's biggest producer to "Implement" the agreement by: 1. Boosting the guaranteed annual -l-cent hourly raise — the KO- called annual improvement lactor — to 5 cents. 2. Adding 21 of the 26 cents nn hour gained in cost-of-llving adjustments since the pact was signed to base pay. This would moan that only 5 cents could be taken awny If the cost-oMivlng (lives sharply between now and May, 1055. 3. Adjusting pensions of G. M. workers who have retired under the contract to give them the same purchasing power they hart when the agreement was signed. The union did not say how much of a raise would be needed In the current maximum of $125 a month, Including social security. General Motors and the UAW firsl negotiated the now much- used escalator system hatching wages to living costs In 13-18. That was a two-year pact. In 1950 they revised It somewhat and extended it for five years. Now virtually all the Industry's million workers arc covered bv cost-of-llving agreements, providing a 1 cent pay boost or cut lor each 1.14 rise or fall In Ihe Bureau of Labor Statistic);' consumers price index. They also are covered by the 4-cent "Improvement 1 ' clauses and similar pension arrangements. The UAW G. M, Council pointed Iff THE PROBATE COUIiT. UIIKKASAWIIA niSTKIUT.
