Wire Service Guild rejected a UPI wage freeze plan.

UPI had sought an 18-month wage freeze and other concessions by employees of the news service. The union, which represents about 900 UPI editorial employees, said the company made its proposals at a meeting in Washington with Guild President William Morrissey and Secretary-Treasurer Dan Carmichael. According to the Guild, UPI management proposed to continue reduced pay levels--currently 85% of normal wages--for an additional 18 months, until October, 1986.
