Tentative Agreement

NEWS
BY A SUN STAFF WRITER | February 23, 2001
A proposal to establish a special unit in the state's attorney's office to prosecute police officers accused of criminal misconduct has not been made final, city officials said yesterday. State's Attorney Patricia C. Jessamy has not signed a memorandum - which she formulated and police drafted - outlining how the ethics unit would be set up and operated. Jessamy's office did not respond to interview requests yesterday. The tentative agreement was reached this week, in the wake of Mayor Martin O'Malley's becoming irate because Jessamy dropped corruption charges against a city officer accused of planting evidence on an innocent man. It also follows a call by Police Commissioner Edward T. Norris for Assistant State's Attorney Elizabeth A. Ritter to step down from police cases, after she called a radio talk show using her middle name and attacked his department.

Retirees from General Motors Corp. could pay up to $752 a year more in health care costs for their families as part of a tentative agreement with the United Auto Workers union, an increase some experts say may be just the beginning of cutbacks to try and stem losses at the financially-ailing automaker. The tentative agreement requires most of GM's retirees to pay premiums that were previously covered, as well as increased deductibles and co-pays, according to a UAW statement released yesterday.

Negotiators for Lockheed Martin Corp. and the Machinists union reached a tentative agreement yesterday that likely signals an end to the six-week-long strike at the company's aircraft assembly plant in Marietta, Ga. The agreement is subject to the approval of members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, who walked out of the plant March 11 protesting a proposed employment contract. But the new three-year contract offered yesterday was approved unanimously by the union's bargaining committee, and both sides hailed it as a breakthrough.

Living with uncertainty is nothing new for 1,100 people who earn a living at General Motors Corp.'s factory in southeast Baltimore. The plant, nearly 70 years old and producing van models with diminishing sales, has been threatened with closure for decades. But the loss of a clause in the workers' new contract may drive another wedge between them and their present job security. General Motors and the United Auto Workers reached a tentative agreement on a four-year contract Thursday. But it is unclear if the new agreement retains a clause from the old contract that prohibited the company from closing any plants.

Baltimore County school employees have reached a tentative agreement with the school system that would raise the contributions employees make to their health care plans over the next five years in exchange for guarantees that there will be no layoffs or furloughs for three years. Over the next five years, the county's contribution to their health care premiums would drop to 80 percent from 90 percent, which would bring school employees in line with other county workers. School employees who elect to join an HMO would pay less than those who choose the other plans.
