Three Of Four Bell Unions Now Under Contract
The Bell Production Engineering Association, which represents
nearly 175 engineers at Bell Helicopter, has reached a three-year
contract with the helicopter manufacturer by a three-to-one
The union manages production and tooling of components at the
company's manufacturing plants.
Terms of the contract include a general wage increase of 3
percent in the second and third years of the deal as well as a
$3,000 per worker ratification bonus. It also includes quarterly
cost of living adjustments and automatic progression increases.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that Bell has now reached
agreement with three of its four unions, with only the fire and
security workers still without a contract. Bells manufacturing
workers spent six weeks on strike against the company earlier this
year, but that labor disupte was resolved in July. All of the deal
have included similar health and other befits, and none includes a
general pay increase in 2009.
