"The contract will change the way we work to assure the survival and success of the ship repair industry in Portland," Mr. Foti predicted. The four-year contract, effective July 1, 1996, through June 30, 2000, allows a worker from any Metal Trades union to perform any craftwork at the shipyard he or she can do safely and efficiently It also provides an hourly wage based on skill, ability and performance.
