Union members ivill vote Friday —ii j American Oil, OCAW agree on contract Alton Evening Telegraph Wednesday, January 6, 1971 A-3 NOW PAID ON 1-YEAR SAVINGS CERTIFICATES A new two-year contract 1*Mch would increase wages ty a total of 16 per cent over that period was agreed upon by officials of American Oil Co. and the Oil Chemical and Atomic Workers Union Tuesday afternoon in Wood River. The union will vote on the new contract Friday at 7:30 p.m.. in the Lincoln School in Wood River. It needs a simp'o ma'oritv for passage from the more than 500 member union. The settlement between labor and management has averted a threatened strike at the Wood River refinery of American Oil. as the OCAW had taken a strike vote prior to the expiration of the old contract on Dec. 31. Since progress was being made in negotiations, the union continued working. The new contract will be retroactive to the first of the year. Under the negotiated pact, the employes, who average $4.49 an hour, will receive an 8^ per cent increase the first year, and 7i£ per cent hike in the second year. The percentages amount to about 38 and 37 cents respectively. The new package will include an extra holiday, which will now give the employes a total of nine paid holidays per year. Lester Lasbury, international president of the OCAW, told the Telegraph that -one of the most important aspects of the new contract is full pension at age Olin gets burnin 62, with the company picking up the full cost. He said there were good improvements granted under the hospitalization plan, with the company paying $fi more in 1971. and $4 more in 1972. Currently, the employes are paying $13.97 toward hospitalization insurance, which would mean that by the end of the contract they woulj be then paying only $3.97, if rates don't increase, Lasbury said, however, rates are expected to be raised, he added. In other items, the lower rated jobs received provements in wages. im- and employes will receive 2\< 2 times their pay for all work o n holidays. Originally, Lasbury said, they were paid the 2V 2 times for only eight hours. While American Oil has apparently negotiated a successful contract. Shell Oil Co. is in negotiations with 11 craft unions at its refinery. The contract at Clark Oil Co. doesn't expire unti 1 ! the end of the month, and negotiations there are expected to continue also. , FIRST FEDERAL >on U K.ST MAIN ST. EAST A I,TON. Federally Chartered — Federally Insured permission Open burning of six remaining buildings at the Olin Corporation in East Alton began Tuesday with the permission of the Illinois Pollution Control Board. The buildings are being burned at Hie old Powder Mill Site on the Olin property. Olin had sought a permit from the state pollution control board to burn the buildings and powder wastes in a public hearing at Springfield Dec. 1. The permit was granted Dec. 22, according to Olin public relations man William Humberg. Humberg said Tuesday that the board's granting of the permit "recognizes that open burning is. the only safe way to clear the area." Powder has been manufactured in the East Alton plant since the 1890's, he said. The permit is good until next Dec. 1, but requires the company to finish burning the buildings by March L Only one building can be burned in a day, under the permit. Humberg saio company officials have ordered burning only under "the most favorable weather con- d i t i o n s . " He said the remaining five buildings are expected to be burned this month.
