California IN BRIEF : ONTARIO : Lockheed Workers Accept Contract
A nine-week strike involving 900 Lockheed machinists who service Air Force and Navy aircraft in Ontario, Chino and Upland came to an end as workers accepted a new three-year contract. The agreement, approved by 88% of voters, provides a 5% pay increase and $2,000 bonus in the first year of the contract. Smaller pay raises are included for subsequent years. Under the last contract, the machinists had averaged from $14 to $15 per hour, said John Dailey, a spokesman for Lockheed Aircraft Service Co., a division of Lockheed Corp. The machinists, members of Local 821 of the International Assn. of Machinists, went on strike March 12.
