Workers likely to end strike today

Striking campus service workers, by all indi-
cations, will accept the terms of a newly-reach-
ed tentative contract settlement with the Uni-
versity at their ratification meeting this afer-
If rank-and-file members of he American Fed-
eration of State, County and Municipal Em-
ployes (AFSCME, Local 1583) ratify the agree-
ment, they will return to their jobs, admittedly a
lot less affluent than they had planned.
THE 2,300 FOOD service, hospital, maintenance
and grounds workers will have only realized five
cents an hour more than the wages they rejected
last month befope embarking on a 26-day strike,
"We're not really very happy about it," AFS-

CME, Council 11 President Walt Oliver admitted
moments after the two sides reached agreement
in the early hours of Saturday morning. But Oliver
added, the union had no choice but to accept the
University's terms.
He said later that he had no doubts that the
University's final offer was "absolutely the best"
AFSCME could get.
"WE'RE QUITE SURE they're going to ratify
it," said Don McClure, a representative for Local
1583's international parent union yesterday.
The agreement calls for a 60 cent per hour
wage hike over 24 months, with a 30 cent increase
effective March 20 and an identical increase as of
March 20, 1978. The contract is set to expire on
the same date in 1979.

Also provided for each employe is a $125 pay-
ment, retroactive to January 1, 1977, covering the
period union members went without a contract.
THE THIRD ESSENTIAL addition to the settle-
ment is a crucial "no reprisal" clause, which lim-
its the number of returning strikers who can be
disciplined or discharged by the University.
The_ clause gives the administration the right to
discipline certain people, particularly those found
guilty of criminal offenses associated with the
walkout. At the same time, AFSCME has the
right to challenge any disciplinary actions through
The University agreed to pay the union's $86,000
Blue Cross insurance bill for March, normally
taken care of through deductions from worker

paychecks and University contributions:

ADMINISTRATOS WILL also make several
changes in work shifts during the Christmas/New
Year's holiday period.
All other items in the contract remained as
they were When AFSCME workers overwhelming-
ly rejected an initial tentative agreement on Feb.
22. At that time, the wage increase proposed was
for 55 cents per hour over two years.
Unlike the first ratification vote, however,
where the union bargaining team and other lead-
ers split over whether the contract should have
been accepted, this afternoon's vote is more care-
fully organized.

Upsetloss prevents

first NCAA cage title
Special to The Daily
LEXINGTON-All the indicators pointed to a typi-
cal Michigan comeback yesterday, but the University
of North Carolina-Charlotte. (UNCC) wasn't just any
typical opponent.
After blazing back from a 13-point halftime deficit
and taking a 49-48 lead, the first-ranked Wolverines
seemed to have enough -momentum to' carry them to
an NCAA semifinal berth in Atlanta.
INSTEAD, WITH STILL twelve minutes and eleven
seconds left, the mf an Mean Green once again started
to roar, and pullen away to a 75-68 victory enabling
them to meet Marquette in the NCAA semifinals next
As for Michigan, its title aspirations came to an abrupt

said an obviously dejected Orr after the game. ,"I wish North
Carolina-Charlotte the best of luck. That's a fine team and they
definitely have a chance to win it all."

shown this season - the ability to outscore the Wolverines in

Belcher expected


ou tspend dpponen ts

If the April 4 mayoral election were to be de-
cided solely by the candidates' expected cam-
paign contributions, Republican Fifth Ward Coun-
cilman Louis Belcher would trounce Mayor Al-
bert Wheeler from Dexter to Ypsilanti,
But though it is often true that more money
means more votes, Wheeler hopes to overcome
the difference between the $12,000 he expects to
take in and Belcher's anticipated $24,000 in much
the same way he did in 1975. In that election, in-
cumbent Mayor James Stephenson outspent
Wheeler $27 000 to $11,000.
WHEELER, who concedes that Belcher's "big

HRP candidate Diana Slaughter had collected
$41.87, and is not soliciting contributions. She
has spent no money so far' in the race.
SINCE MARCH 10, Wheeler has seen his early
lead in contributions dwindle away. Wheeler's
treasurer, Michael Broughton, said the mayor has
collected a lot of money since then but has spent
a great deal as well. Broughton says the current
total is .about $6,500.
Belcher says his campaign coffers now hold
about $8,000 and he expects to collect $7,000 more
by March 28.
The biggest 'chunk of Belcher's money will go
for newspaper ads - about $8,200. Other big
