3. The term "employees" shall not include, and the terms of this contract do not extend to office personnel and supervisory employees as the same are defined and interpreted under the Labor Management Act.

In the event any new or experimental operation, container, or classification shall be installed by the Company in any of said plants, the Company shall have the right to temporarily set the wage scale and working conditions, providing the scale be comparable to a similar classification as to rate, if feasible, but shall notify the Union by notifying the shop steward within 48 hours after the operation, container, or classification is installed. Within twenty days thereafter, or such extra time as is

- 3 -

agreed upon between the Company and the Union, the Company, the Areas Negotiating Committee and the Union shall agree upon the wage scale and working conditions. If no agreement is reached within the time limitation set forth, the parties agree to go to arbitration within ten days after written request by one Party to the other and the arbitrator shall make his determination within thirty days after the submission of the matter to him in writing or such additional time as may be agreed upon by the Company and the Union.

In the event the Company is required to load carriers higher than the levels previously established, the employer will meet with the Union to determine whether or not the employees duties are thereby substantially increased, and if so what, if any, premium should be paid therefore. If the Company and the Union cannot agree on the rate, the issues will be submitted to arbitration under Article I, Section Four.

ARTICLE II UNION SECURITY

1. Employees may become members of the Union within 30 days from the date of their employment, but must become members of the Union after 30 days from date of employment or after this Agreement has been in effect 30 days, whichever shall occur later. Membership in good standing in the Union shall be a continuing condition of employment for all employees covered by this Agreement, subject to the provisions and limitations of the Labor-Management Act.

- 4 -

2. In the event any employee shall fail to tender periodic dues or initiation fees, the Union shall give a notice in writing to the Company requesting the discharge of such employees. The Company shall notify the employee of the receipt of such letter, and if the employee shall not tender his dues or initiation fees within 24 hours after service of notice on the employer, the employer shall be required to discharge the employee. Such discharged employee shall not be re-employed until the Company has been notified in writing by the Union that the discharged employee has become a member in good standing in the Union.

3. Any packing house may employ not more than three persons at any one time for the sole purpose of learning the produce business. Such persons will not be required to belong to the union as a condition of employment, but each such person shall pay a service fee equal to the amount of the regular Union initiation fee and the amount of the regular Union dues during the period or periods in which he is employed in the packing house. Each person shall be required to pay only one initiation fee.

4. The Company agrees that it will not in any way discriminate against any employee because of his membership in, activity on or in behalf of, or sympathy toward the Union herein. Neither the Union nor the Company will discriminate against an applicant or employee because of race, creed, color, sex or religious belief.

5. Company will, within 15 days after it commences operations in any season, give to the Union a list of all employees covered by this Agreement. Company will, to the extent possible, give this first list to the Union without written request by the Union, but the failure to do so shall not be considered a breach of this Agreement. Within 10 days after the start of each month thereafter, Company will, upon written request by

- 5 -

the Union, give to the Union a list of all employees who are at that time covered by the Agreement.

6. The provisions of Sections 1, 2, 3 and 5 of Article II and of Section 3 of Article V of this Agreement shall have no application to the operations of the Company, if any, in the State of Arizona and are hereby deleted as to such operations as long as they are contrary to the law of Arizona. The Union asserts that the amendment to the Constitution of the State of Arizona, commonly referred to as the "Right to Work Bill", and its implementing legislation are unconstitutional and invalid and specifically reserves the right to secure a judicial determination thereon. Should they be repealed or held invalid by the Court of last resort, the provisions of Section 6, Article II, of this Agreement shall be eliminated and the provisions of Sections 1, 2, 3 and 5 of Article II and of Section 3 of Article V of this Agreement shall thereupon become effective as to operations in Arizona except as the same may be modified or superseded by any Act of Congress.

ARTICLE III PREFERENCE OF EMPLOYMENT

The Company shall make all reasonable efforts to the end of providing jobs to individuals who are experienced and qualified. Such efforts shall include:

  1. The Company shall accept and keep on file applications for employment by experienced and qualified workers.
  2. In the event of an opening not filled by seniority employees asserting their right to the opening under Article IX (Seniority), Section 3, the Company shall give preference to workers formerly employed in the industry who are experienced,

    - 6 -

    qualified and available to perform the work in question.
  3. An individual is presumed to be experienced and qualified when he has performed work in the classification for two years and in six calendar months. The employee may be asked to supply evidence of his qualification. The presumption is rebuttable.
  4. An individual shall be deemed to be available if he makes application for the opening within five days from the time the Company posts notice of the vacancy and is ready and able to work within said period of time. When an opening occurs, the Company will post a notice of such opening on the bulletin board and such other places on the packing house where notices are customarily posted, and where they are available to employees and individuals seeking employment.
  5. The vacancy will be filled by the first qualified and experienced applicant. If a company employs workers who are experienced and qualified, the Company need not otherwise comply with the provisions of this Article. If a Company makes arrangements to employ a new worker who is experienced and qualified, and that worker goes to work within five days after the vacancy first becomes available or at the commencement of the Company's season at each of its packing houses, whichever occurs later, then the Company need not otherwise comply with the provisions of this Article, if it posts notice of its arrangement to employ such worker, specifying the name of such worker.
  6. A worker who asserts his right to an opening as set forth in this Article shall be on probation for the first five days he works to demonstrate to the Company's satisfaction his experience and ability.

    - 7 -

  7. The Company will be responsible for all wages lost by an experienced and qualified worker with an application on file and who is available for work, who is denied an opportunity for employment resulting from the Company's failure to satisfy the requirements set forth above. Provided, however, that no claim can be made for such lost wages for the first two working days lost by a qualified and experienced applicant.

ARTICLE IV CHECK-OFF OF UNION DUES

1. The Company agrees to deduct from the wages of each employee who has signed the proper authorization card, Union dues and initiation fees. It will be the complete and sole responsibility of the Union Business Agents to secure the signed authorization cards from the employees and deliver such cards to the Company. These authorization cards are for one year or the length of the Contract, whichever is sooner.

2. Payroll deductions shall be made from the next paycheck following submission of the signed cards by the Business Agent and for the first pay period in each month thereafter. If an employee is discharged or quits prior to his regular payday, dues are to be paid when that employee receives his final check.

3. The employer will make out a check covering the total amount of dues and initiation fees deducted, together with a list of employees from whom the dues and initiation fees were deducted, and the amount deducted from each employee. The check and list are to be mailed to United Packing House, Food and Allied Workers, Local 78-B, at the last address given to the Company by the Union.

4. The Union will be responsible for all refunds to an employee. Under no

- 8 -

circumstances should the employer return any money deducted under a signed authorization to an employee. No employer should make any deductions of any kind without the signed authorization.

ARTICLE V REPRESENTATION

1. The Company agrees to admit to its packing houses covered by this Agreement at any reasonable time any authorized Union representative for the purpose of conducting Union business, provided, however, there shall be no interference or interrupting of working operations.

2. On each packing house there shall be selected by the Union not more than three Shop Stewards, except that where different commodities are packed by separate crews there shall be not more than two Shop Stewards for each crew.

The Company and the Union shall mutually agree upon a time for the taking of such book inspection and notice thereof shall be posted on the bulletin board at least 24 hours prior to the time fixed.

- 9 -

4. At the start of each season, the Union shall be given not in excess of 10 minutes in which to select the Shop Stewards on each packing house. The time, therefore, shall be mutually agreed between the Company and the Union, it being understood, however, that it will be the 10 minutes immediately after the starting of work or the termination of a rest period, or the 10 minutes immediately before the termination of work, or before a rest period.

5. The Union shall be allowed to hold its annual or bi-annual election of officers on the packing house during working hours, but no more than 30 minutes working time shall be expended for such election for each packing house.

3. Any dispute which shall arise and is considered by either the Company or the Union to require immediate attention shall be referred directly to the next scheduled meeting of the Areas Negotiating Committee and the Union. Prior to the commencement of the season, the Union and the Areas Negotiating Committee will schedule grievance meetings in each of the various districts specified in Article IX, Section 14, such meetings to be set approximately 10 days after the packing season starts in each such district. No later than 5 days prior to each such meeting the Union will give written notice that it intends to proceed with such meeting. In the absence of such notice the meeting shall be deemed cancelled. The Union and the Areas Negotiating Committees will hold their respective members responsible to pursue all unresolved disputes through the procedures herein established.

ARTICLE VII ARBITRATION

1. Any dispute which has not been adjusted under the Grievance Procedure and which arises under the terms and conditions of this Agreement may be submitted to arbitration.

2. At the outset of the arbitration hearing, the party appealing to arbitration shall furnish the arbitrator with copies of all documents relating to the grievance.

ARTICLE VIII NOTICE TO UNION OF START OF SEASON

Company will give the Union 72 hours notice, if possible, of the commencement of the packing house operations by giving notice in writing or by telephone of the approximate starting hour of its first day's operation. If 72 hours cannot be given, notice shall be given as soon as the Company knows the approximate starting date of its operation.

Within 72 hours of the receipt of the above notice by the Union, the Union will notify the Company of the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of its authorized representatives and offices for each district specified in Article IX, Section 14.

- 14 -

ARTICLE IX SENIORITY

1. Seniority shall be obtained on each packing house after employment of 30 days or 51% of the season, provided 51% of the season is less than 30 days. Any seniority acquired by employees under contracts heretofore existing between the Company and other unions shall be accumulated under the provisions of this contract.

2. Seniority shall be acquired only on each individual packing house and shall apply only to the job classification in which the employee is employed. When employees rotate or work regularly on more than one job classification, they shall be entitled to seniority on the job classifications upon which they regularly worked. Where a company operates more than one packing house with overlapping seasonal operations, an employee having seniority on more than one packing house shall not lose his seniority in either so long as he works in the packing house to which he is assigned by the company.

3. Employees applying for job openings in the plant shall be entitled to such job openings on the basis of length of hire, provided they are capable of performing the work in a manner satisfactory to the employer and provided they are experienced and qualified to perform such work as the same is defined in Article III paragraph 3 (Preferential Hiring Clause). This provision shall not permit an individual to assert his right to a job opening in preference over a qualified applicant who is unemployed as a result of a plant closing within the district.

4. In the event the company packs more than one commodity in its packing house, its employees having seniority in any one commodity shall be employed in any other commodity packed in said packing house as jobs open up in preference to workers

- 15 -

not formerly employed by the Company if such seniority employees are available and qualified.

(a) In the event a job classification in Company's packing house is eliminated, seniority employees who were performing such job classification at the time of its elimination shall be given preference in unfilled jobs in the packing house if such seniority employees are available and qualified.

5. Where an employee agrees in writing to transfer to another classification, he shall obtain seniority status in the new classification in the manner heretofore provided. He shall retain this seniority status in his former classification (provided he is capable of performing the job). The seniority on the former classification may be exercised in the event that within one year of the transfer he is laid off the job to which he has been transferred and the lay off is by reason of lack of seniority or elimination of the job to which he has been transferred.

6. As to employees having seniority as heretofore provided, hiring and lay offs of such employees shall be on the basis of length of seniority.

7. Company shall, within 30 days following the close of the season, prepare a seniority list and mail a copy to the Union at 471 Main Street, El Centro, California. On the first operation day of the next season, Company shall post a copy of the seniority list on the bulletin board. Seniority lists on each commodity on which seniority can be obtained shall include employee's name and the year and date of hiring, and the job classification for each packing house, provided, however, that as to employees who obtain seniority on or before the end of the 1950 season, the date of hiring need not be set forth on the list other than to state seniority obtained prior to December 31, 1950, and as to such employees, prior right of employment shall be

- 16 -

determined by the Company and the Union.

8. The employees shall, between close of season and 2 weeks prior to the commencement of the season in which he claims seniority, notify the Company in writing of his intention to assert his seniority. The Company shall acknowledge such notice and notify the employee in writing of the approximate starting time of the next season at his last known address. The employee shall report and be available for work at such time unless he has obtained a written authorization from the Company extending the time for reporting. There need be no more than 5 days between the date of notification and the date for reporting. Notification of the approximate date of starting operations shall not constitute a call.

9. Nothing in this article shall be interpreted to deprive an employee of seniority because employee arrives later than the date for reporting if employee arrives within 7 days after the packing house has commenced packing operations and provided employee's failure to arrive on time was because of employment in lettuce, carrot, cauliflower, broccoli, celery or melon packing houses in another district where employee has seniority or would have it by the end of the season, and employee brings a certificate from employee's employer stating employee was so employed and employee's services were required. Employee must report within 3 days after ending such employment. In the event of any delay in reporting for work for the reason herein set forth, employee shall give notice to the employer in writing of such delay, which notice shall be in the hands of the employer at least 3 days prior to the date on which employee was to report for work, and in such notice the employee shall also advise the employer of the date on which employee will report. It is also understood that the employer will provide such certificate, when required, to protect seniority

- 17 -

in another area.

10. Where the Company maintains separate crews in different commodities covered by this seniority provision, employees shall obtain seniority only in one commodity, except that seniority may be obtained in two or more commodities where the commodities are worked in separate or overlapping seasons and the employee has obtained seniority in each commodity in a particular classification and has otherwise complied with the terms of this provision.

11. If required by the employer, an employee in order to maintain seniority in more than one commodity where there is an overlapping of seasons shall shift to the commodity in which the season is just beginning and to the classification in which he claims seniority in such commodity or he shall lose his seniority in such commodity.

12. Whatever seniority an employee has is lost if he:

  1. Is discharged for a just cause;
  2. Voluntarily leaves the employment of the employer without written leave of absence; or
  3. Fails to give notice and report as required under the Article.

13. Seniority applies only in lettuce, carrots, cauliflower, celery, broccoli and melons except that in case of packing houses packing mixed vegetables, seniority shall apply on the basis of Section 2 Article IX, if seniority is not acquired in a commodity under this Section 13.

14. Where a Company in a district is packing a commodity that is covered by the provisions of this contract and that Company opens an additional packing shed in the same district to pack that commodity, seniority employees shall be offered employment

- 18 -

on the packing shed of their choice within a period of 10 days after the additional packing shed is opened.

Seniority employees who choose to remain at the original shed shall have the right for two years after the opening of the additional shed to transfer to the new shed under the following conditions:

  1. A sustained reduction in the available work due to transfer of volume to the new shed. This option shall be exercised just once.
  2. Upon the closing of the original shed.

The districts referred to herein are: Yuma Valley, Arizona; Imperial Valley, California; Blythe, California; Parker, Arizona; Bakersfield, California; Mendota, Firebaugh and Los Banos, California; Turlock and Huron, California and Sacramento Valley, California.

4. Leaves of absence shall be granted or extended upon illness of an employee substantiated by a doctor's certificate or other adequate proof of illness.

5. An employee's appointment or election to conduct Union business shall be deemed good and sufficient reason for obtaining a leave of absence. Such employee shall be given, upon written notice to the Company and to the Shippers Labor Committee in the district as to those packing houses listed in Appendix "A", a leave of absence not to exceed one year, which shall be extended yearly thereafter on request, provided the employee shall be continuously conducting Union business. Not more than three employees shall be given leaves of absence under this Section from any one packing house unless authorized by the Company.

6. Seniority shall accumulate during leaves of absence and upon his return within the period of the leaves of absence, the employee shall be reinstated without loss of seniority and at the existing scale of wage.

until 5:00 p.m. and overtime for all work performed after 5:00 p.m. in such day. A day crew which commences work between 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. shall receive overtime for all work performed before 7:00 a.m. "

(b) In the packing and handling of melons, all work performed by the employees before 7:00 a.m. or after 5:00 p.m., or after eight hours in any one day, shall be at the rate of time and one-half, providing, however, crew members whose special duties require their reporting to the packing house prior to 7:00 a.m. shall receive straight time until they have worked eight hours and any time in excess of eight hours shall be at time and one-half.

2. A day crew is one which commences work between 6:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. A night crew is one which commences work between 6:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. A night crew which commences work between 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. and works continuously except for meal periods of one hour shall be paid straight time for the first eight hours worked and shall be paid time and one-half for all hours worked in excess of eight hours in any one night.

Sundays and holidays for night crews shall be those shifts following Sunday and holiday day shifts and commencing on such Sunday or holiday.

6. No work shall be done on Labor Day, except in melons. Work may be performed on Labor Day in melons with the mutual consent of the Company and the Union. The Shop Steward may act for the Union in giving its consent.

7. (a) Employees shall be paid from the time called until released. Each day an employee is required to report for work and does report, but is not put to work, said employee shall be paid for at least two hours at the employee's regular rate of pay.

If an employee is required to report for work and is put to work, the employee shall receive a minimum of four hours work or four hours' pay at the employee's regular rate of pay, except that when the employer, employees and Union agree that the usual or scheduled day's work is four hours or less, the employee shall be paid for not less than two hours at the employee's regular rate of pay. The Shop Steward may act upon

- 27 -

the behalf of the Union in giving the foregoing consent.

The foregoing reporting time pay provisions are not applicable when:

  1. Operations cannot commence or continue due to threats to employees or property, or when recommended by civil authorities; or
  2. Public utilities fail to supply electricity, water, or gas, or there is a failure in the public utilities sewer system; or
  3. The interruption of work is caused by an Act of God or other cause not within the employer's control.

If an employee is required to work a split shift in any one day and is furnished less than two hours of work on the second reporting, said employee shall be paid for two hours at the employee's regular rate of pay.

Any call may be rescinded by the Company by notification to the employee at least one hour prior to the time for reporting for work.

(b) Where a crew is on piece rates and less than the required call time is furnished, the employees shall be paid their piece rate for the period worked, and the remainder of the required call time shall be at the hourly rate.

(c) Return to work after a meal period shall not constitute a call unless the meal period exceeds one hour.

(d) Any time a crew is released it must be released for a minimum of one hour.

(e) When the crew is released for the remainder of the day and no definite time is fixed by the Company but the crew is required to call in to ascertain a starting time, on such event the crew shall be given a full hour's period to call in, starting time to be not less than one hour after the final time designated to call in.

8. (a) In the case of standby time, when the employees are on piece work,

- 28 -

the Company shall use the press as a basis for maintaining start and stop records of production and the hourly rate shall be paid, except in the case of melon packers.

(b) In the case of melon packers, unless standby time exceeds 30 continuous minutes, there shall be no pay for standby time, but if it shall exceed a continuous period of 30 minutes then the rate shall be the equivalent of 40 full wood crates per hour for that entire continuous standby time. There shall not be more than one free standby time between meal periods.

(c) Standby time for packers in mechanical pre-size operation:

In the case of standby time, when the employees are on piece work, standby time shall be paid wherever the packing line is shut down, or wherever the packers fail to average 130 cartons per hour. Averages over the crew computed on a daily basis.

ARTICLE XVII GUARANTEED WORK WEEK

The Company recognizes the need to provide a reasonable work week and will work with the Union to attempt to regulate and adjust the crew size toward the end of providing a minimum of thirty-five hours work for its regular employees working in the packing of cantaloupes during each payroll week. In mixed melons the number of hours shall be thirty. An employee who works each day the Company operates during the payroll week shall be considered a regular employee.

ARTICLE XVIII COMBINATION JOBS

When an employee performs a combination job, the wage rate shall be determined by mutual agreement between the Union, the employer and the Areas Negotiating Committee. A combination job is one in which the employee is required

- 29 -

to perform the work requirements of two or more job classifications resulting in a material increase in the work load. When an employee performs work, in one hour, in two or more classifications, but the work load is not materially increased over the work load of full time work on a standard job in one of these classifications, then he shall receive, for each such hour worked, the highest of the rates of pay in the classifications worked during such hour. When an employee performs work during a day in more than one classification, but the work of more than one classification is not comingled in any one hour, he shall receive for each hour the rate of pay specified for the job classification he is performing during that hour.

ARTICLE XIX WAGES

(1) The wages to be paid in the packing house or houses covered by this Agreement shall be set forth in Exhibits hereto attached. Rates of pay more favorable to employees than those contained in this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect. If an employee, not a part of a group of employees that are paid as a crew, is receiving a rate of pay above scale and terminates or is replaced, his replacement may be paid Union scale. If a group of employees are paid as a crew and are receiving more than Union scale and no member of that crew returns to work for the Company, then the new crew may be paid Union scale. The previous sentence shall not apply to a situation where because of unusual requirements or working conditions an above scale rate has been negotiated between the Union and the Company or between the employees and the Company and which was approved by the Union. Future rates of pay higher than the contract rates herein provided must be approved by the employer, the employee, the Union representative and the Areas Negotiating Committee.

- 30 -

(2) In the event that an employee fails to avail himself of the grievance or arbitration procedures set forth in this Agreement and resorts to a work stoppage, any rate of pay, fringe benefit, or working condition resulting from such work stoppage shall not be covered by the rate of pay clause of this contract.

(3) Payday shall be twelve noon (12:00 noon) on any specified day other than Saturday or Sunday.

(4) An employee who either quits or is laid off for the balance of the season shall have his paycheck made available to him at the packing house within 24 hours after he quits or is laid off.

(5) When an employee terminates his employment at a packing shed or quits, the Company will provide, along with his last paycheck an itemization showing the number of hours for which pension credits were paid. This section is complied with if this information is provided more frequently.

(6) In the event the Company is required to load carriers higher than the level previously established, the employer will meet with the Union to determine whether or not the employees duties are thereby substantially increased, and if so what if any premium should be paid therefore. If the Company and the Union cannot agree on the rate, the issues will be submitted to arbitration under Article I, Section V.

ARTICLE XX LIFE AND HEALTH AND WELFARE INSURANCE

1. (a) Each Company will provide a life, health, and welfare insurance policy to each eligible employee covered by this Agreement providing benefits, terms and conditions as set forth in Paragraph (b) hereof. The Company will pay the insurance premium for each month in which the employee qualifies.

- 31 -

(b) The Company shall provide the benefits of Western Growers Assurance Trust Plan XX as hereinafter amended through the Western Growers Assurance Trust or California-Arizona Growers Group, or such other provider as may be agreed upon between the Company and the Union.

(c) An employee shall have completed all qualifications for insurance coverage when he has worked 60 hours in the prior month for the Company paying the premium and is not disabled on the commencement of the first day of the first month in which he is to be insured.

(d) An employee who immediately prior to qualification for Plan XX was covered by Plan XXI under the Vacuum Cooler Agreement may continue that Plan by the self-payment of the difference between the monthly billed rate for that Plan and Plan XX by making payments as set forth in Section (f) hereof. The Company shall continue to report and make payments an behalf of the employee under Plan XX to the Administrator of the Plan. The employee shall, under the provisions and restrictions of employee self-payments, make payments to the Administrator on the prescribed reporting form and in accordance with the conditions for such payments as set forth on the form.

(e) An employee covered by a plan comparable to Plan XXI under the Vacuum Cooler Agreement may continue the level of such benefits under Plan XXI of the Western Growers Assurance Trust by making payments as set forth in Section (d) above and Section (f) hereof. A continuation under this Section shall be subject to the Notification Clause on the reporting form which sets forth the master policy provision

- 32 -

excluding medical expense payments for any condition for which treatment was received or expense incurred within 90 days of the effective date of the employee's insurance and will continue until the employee or eligible dependent has received no medical treatment or services for a 90 day period or has been insured for 12 consecutive months.

(f) Right of employee to pay premium when not employed by Company under this Contract: After termination of employment for the season, the employee may pay his own insurance premium, at the group rate, for a period not to exceed 11 consecutive months. The first payment of premium by the employee must be paid by the 10th day of the first month following termination of employment for the season, unless the premium for that month has been paid by the Employer, in which case the first payment by the employee must be made by the 10th day of the next consecutive month. Thereafter, each payment must be made consecutively by the 10th of the month, provided the employer is not obligated to pay insurance for that month. The employee has the option to pay the premium for either life insurance only, or the complete coverage including life. This option is to be made by the employee at the start of the period of self-payment of premium and is binding thereafter.

(g) Any employee who retires from the vegetable industry and who was covered under the terms and conditions of this Agreement, who is not self-employed or employed by any other person, firm, corporation or company and who is receiving retirement benefits from the Western Growers Pension Plan shall be entitled during the life of this Agreement to pay his own insurance premium, at the then current group rate. The first payment of premium by the employee must be paid by the 10th day of the first month following termination of employment under this Agreement for which the Company does not pay the premium. The initial payment must be on the prescribed reporting form and in accordance with the

- 33 -

with the conditions for such payments set forth on the form. Thereafter, each payment must be made consecutively by the 10th of each month with no break in payments.

2. Employer will mail to eligible employees, certificates of insurance and explanation of the health and welfare plan.

ARTICLE XXI UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE

Any employer under this Agreement that is not covered by the compulsory provisions of the California Unemployment Insurance Act, will file with the California Employment Commission a written election that all employment in the packing houses covered by this Agreement shall be deemed to be employment for all of the purposes of the Act and upon approval by the Commission of such election, employer will make the payments and deductions provided for under the Act.

ARTICLE XXII PENSION

1. Company shall maintain in effect during the first year of this Agreement the Western Growers Pension Plan with benefits of $12.00 per month for each year of credited service. Commencing March 1, 1978 the benefits shall be increased to $16.00 per month for each year of credited service. Commencing March 1, 1979 the benefits shall be increased to $20.00 per month for each year of credited service. The actuary will determine the required payment per hour per eligible employee necessary to fund the Plan with such benefits. The amount so determined is to be paid on hours of employment as follows:

- 34 -

2. An employee may retire with benefits based on credited service if he has 10 or more years of unbroken service and becomes totally disabled from any type of gainful employment. The Workmen's Compensation set off in the original plan shall be continued.

3. No employee shall suffer a break in service because any Company who is a party to this Agreement fails to pay the required contribution on behalf of an eligible employee. However, if no contributions are made, no benefits will accrue.

4. A Company who fails to make the required pension contribution on behalf of an eligible employee shall pay all reasonable costs of collection incurred by the employee and/or Union.

ARTICLE XXIII AUTOMATION - ADJUSTED RETIREMENT BENEFIT

An employee who has maintained his seniority for at least three years with the Company and the Company certifies that such employee's employment has been eliminated by reason of a change in operations due to mechanization as set forth in Article I, Section 4, shall be entitled to an adjustment in the normal age of retirement (65), as follows:

  1. The employee must have worked in the year for which certification was issued or in any subsequent year, 50% or less of the average number of hours worked in the industry by said employee during the three calendar years prior to the year of certification.
  2. The employee must have ten years of vesting service in the WGA Pension Trust at the time his certification is issued.
  3. The employee must have 5,000 future service hours in the WGA Pension Trust at the time certification is issued.

    - 35 -

  4. The employee's normal retirement age (65) shall be reduced by one month for each 150 hours of future benefit service in the WGA Pension Trust as of the time the certification is issued.
  5. An employee who qualifies for this benefit shall have his reduction in his normal retirement age date reduced one year for each year in which he accrues future service hours subsequent to the date his certificate is issued equal to 75% or more of the hours set forth in 1. above.
  6. If an employee is receiving benefits under provisions, he will lose one month of pension payment for each month he works after the commencement of benefit payments.
  7. In any event, the employee's normal retirement age shall not be reduced before age 55 by reason of this Article.

The actuary will determine the required payment per hour per eligible employee necessary to fund the Pension Plan with benefits as modified above. The amount so determined shall be paid on all hours worked for the Company by employees covered by this Agreement.
