J: . . .1. i; nmu HIBISCUS DRIVE TURTLE CREEK By Gary Rotstein Post-Gazette Harrisburg Correspondent HARRISBURG - The largest union of state employees has approved, by a slim margin, a new three-year contract that reduces fringe benefits and keeps wage increases at a moderate level. Two other state unions approved a similar contract after a two-day strike earlier this month. Members of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees ratified the labor agreement by a 187-vote margin out of 22,619 cast, Edward Keller, executive director of Council 13 of AFSCME, announced yesterday. "I don't necessarily see it as a good contract," Keller said, adding that the union made the best possible deal since the administration was well-prepared for a strike. In a written statement, Gov. Thornburgh said extensive strike preparations paved the way for a settlement "that is fair and reasonable for state employees and afford- I I .4 -t WWMW II HII til ll 1 able for the taxpayers." The governor, a harsh critic of AFSCME demands before the settlement, said, "Too often in the past the commonwealth 'caved in' to excessive demands of the public employee unions at the expense of the taxpayers." The United Food and Commercial Workers, representing liquor store clerks, yesterday announced approval of a similar pact by a 1,441-223 vote. On July 2, members of the Pennsylvania Social Services Union and Pennsylvania Employment Security Employees Association agreed Co similar terms after their walkout. Leaders of those unions had openly criticized the contract and asked members to reject the offer. Terms of the contract, reached hours before a July 1 strike deadline, call for most of the 42,000 members of AFSCME's bargaining unit to receive annual raises of 1665.60 this fiscal year, $686.40 more starting July 1, 1986, and another $707.20 I ri . i n -n' ki'bi' sji 7:r viae juyh . r, . . . .r, ......... r "Mfcrturfi Mtoi n if PETER POPOFF MIRACLE and BLESSING CRUSADE One SPECIAL Day IN THE GREATER PITTSBURGH AREA 0) July 14, 1985 By Gary Rotstein Post-Gazette Harrisburg Correspondent HARRISBURG - Bell of Pennsylvania's request for a $325 million annual rate increase met stiff opposition from the Public Utility Commission staff and the state consumer advocate's office yesterday, the deadline for filings in the case. The PUC staff, charged with representing all ratepayers in the case, said Bell "has justified no more than $16.2 million" of the requested increase. The PUC commissioners often diverge widely from the staff's views in their final decision. The consumer advocate's office, representing residential phone customers, said Bell's rates should actually fall by $32 million. Since filing in January, the utility has lowered its request to $231.5 million because of new information, according to the PUC. Bell spokesman Saul Kohler said the company's official request remains $325.1 million, though the number may fluctuate during hearings. . Arguments supporting the various rates were filed yesterday with Administrative Law Judge Robert Christianson, who will make a recommendation to the commissioners by Aug. 22. A final PUC vote is expected in October. Bell's original $325 million rate increase proposal called for increases of 60 percent or more annually in bills for most of its 3.6 million customers. It said 75 percent of the increased costs should be borne by residential customers, but Consumer Advocate David Barasch contends the proposal actually calls for 95 percent of the costs to fall on residential users. No information was available yesterday on how the new recommendations would affect customers' charges. Under the initial request, ' most Allegheny County residents who pay between $12.28 and $12.68 monthly for local unlimited calling would see that jump between $19.65 and $20.55. While some factors in the case have changed since the January filing, the company said local telephone costs must rise substantially to control long distance costs and keep businesses in Bell's phone system, Bell said long distance customers heavily subsidize local service users. Barasch disagrees with that argument and takes issue with company revenue estimates of taxes, salaries, rate of return, depreciation allowances and advertising. July 1, 1987. The increase amounts to 3 percent annually for workers at AFSCME's highest pay scale and 4 percent to 6 percent for most of those at the lower levels. The union gave up employee holidays on primary and general election days in exchange for an additional personal day. The number of sick days each year also will fall from 15 to 13. In addition, new employees must wait seven years, instead of one year, to earn three weeks of vacation. The state agreed to increase contributions to employees' health and welfare funds by $5 million. Keller said he had no personal position on the contract and accepted membership's decision. AFSCME has about 9,000 members not covered by the contract. Some of those, including state correctional workers, have yet to ratify new contracts with similar terms. A handful of other small state unions are in the same position. Midland's Lincoln Park. William Bacon, exalted ruler of the Elks, said several choirs will participate.

"Violators will be asked to put fires out," said Fire Chief Tom Llewellyn, "and if they don't comply they will be cited by police." Lllewellyn said residents should call the police about violators, not the fire department.
