Wearing black arm bands symbolizing the death of their health and welfare fund, representatives of 4,000 retired workers from supermarkets in the Baltimore-Washington area picketed in front of the employment offices at Super Fresh and Giant Food yesterday.The retired workers were calling attention to a 114 percent increase in co-payments for their health insurance, from $80 a month in December to $171.95 this month. The additional cost, they say, is too much for retired people on fixed incomes.
