particularly jet planes.

{Ford Workers Given
Best Pension Plan ;
In Auto Industry
By lh* Associated Pros*
DETROIT, May 26—The Ford l
i Motor Co. did General Motors
one better in voluntarily revising (
I its five-year contract wUh the
CIO United Auto Workers early
today by giving the union the
. best major pension plan in the
industry—a maximum of $137.50
, a month.
Before it did so. however. Ford 1
demanded and was given assur
ance that the crippling strike of
UAW workers at its Canton.
Ohio, forge plant would be
i halted immediately. That flve
| week-old tieup had made Ba,ooo
lof Ford's 135.000 production
workers idle and practically shut
down the vast Ford production j
system.
Ford and the UAW wound up
two long days of secret, top-level
negotiations by formally an
j nouncing the contract changes
i shortly after midnight. Henry
i Ford 11, Ford president and Wal
ter P. Reuther, UAW and CIO
president, led the talks.
Big Boost in Pensons.
The big boosts in pension pay
; ments—sl2.so to $35 a month—
I came as somewhat of a bomb
i shell after General Motors, the
: industry's biggest producer and
| traditonal labor pattern-setter,
i had signed a supplemental
| agreement with the UAW only
Friday wthout any pension im
| provements.
Contracts with GM, Chrysler
| and practically all the other
| automotive firms provide maxi
mum pensions of $125 a month,
i Both this and the new $137.50
I Ford figure include Federal so
[ I cial security benefits. All apply
i at age 65 after 30 years’ service.
; The $35 boost at Ford will apply
i j to 20-year men who now will
i i bet slls a month instead of SBO.
The pension plan, other than
I the social security portion, will
be financed entirely by the com
pany.
The revised Ford contract also
provides other benefits not found
elsewhere in the industry:
One group of skilled workers—
-500 die sinkers and pattern mak
ers—will get 20 cents an hour
wage boost.
The 6.000 retired Ford work
ers will have the option of buy
ing hospital-medical insurance
at Ford's group rate.
Other New Benefits.
Otherwise the new benefits in
the Ford and GM contracts
are identical:
Nineteen of the 24 cents net
gain picked up under cost-of
! living w age hikes since the con
tracts were signed in 1950 will
be put into base pay, to be un
touched by any future price de
clines.
The so-called “annual im
provement factor"—a guaran
teed raise to cover improved
production techniques—will go
up from 4 to 5 eents an hour
June 1.
About 21,000 skilled workers
will get a 10-cent hourly pay
increase.
j The new Bureau of Labor Sta
tistics price index will supplant
the old index as a guide to pay
rates in the future.
