WASHINGTON (AP) - Union
machinists and Eastern Airlines
reached tentative agreement on a new
contract last night, just five hours
before a midnight strike deadline that
threatened to ground a large part of the
nation's busiest airline just before the
busy Easter travel season.
The three-year settlement was an-
nounced jointly by Dwain Andrews,
senior vice president for labor relations
at the airline, and Charles Bryan,
president of District 100 of the
Machinists Union and chief negotiator
for the union.
BOTH ANDREWS and Bryan hailed
the agreement as one benefitting both
the financially troubled airline and the
union, which represents some 13,500
Eastern mechanics, baggage handlers
and ground workers. But neither would
Bryan told reporters that represen-
tatives of the unions various locals at
Eastern would be briefed in full on the
pact at a meeting in Atlanta tomorrow,
after which details of the proposed con-
tract would be released. He said he ex-
pected a ratification vote by the rank
and file within two weeks, and said the
union leadership would recommend
Andrews refused to say whether
Eastern sweetened an offer that had t
been rejected last weekend by a margin
of nearly 3-1 among union members.
But he did say, "We felt like we needed
to get a resolution of this and get the
airline running normally."
BRYAN SAID the tentative
agreement is "a major improvement
over the contract we voted down.. . You
always want more, but we're highly
satisfied and we'll recommend" ap-
proval in membership voting.
The threat of a strike against
Eastern, which leads the other carriers
in the number of passenger miles it
flies, came at the onset of the Easter
holiday season, one of the busiest for
Eastern board chairman Frank
Borman, who arrived in Washington
Tuesday, had said a walkout against
the financially ailing company would he
BUT BORMAN also had vowed that
the machinists could not shut down
Eastern, saying the airline would con-
tinue to make between 65 and 75 percent
of its scheduled flights. Borman was not
participating in the negotiations. s
More than 13,500 union mechanics,
baggage handlers and ground workers,
who now get $13.15 an hour at top scale,
were dissatisfied with the money
provisions of the company's proposed
A strike was averted March 13 when
management countered with a contract
proposing wage increases of 32 percent
during the life of the pact, which would
be retroactive to Jan. 1, 1982 - when
the previous agreement expired - and
run through Dec. 31, 1984.

HE ARGUED the Promotion and
Review Board acted arbitrarily when
they dismissed him from the program.
However, Feikens said Ewing had
had a great deal of trouble before he
failed the board exam.
"It is significant that it took him
three years to complete the first two
years of the program," Feikens wrote.
"It is also apparent that he had great
difficulty in the 'hard' science cour-
PROFESSORS AND deans in the
medical school testified that Ewing had
academic difficulties throughout his
term in the program.
After one year in Inteflex, Ewing
requested and was granted a leave of
absence. He was placed on a different
program than the structured one most
Inteflex students follow.
Because of these previous dif-
ficulties, the Promotion and Review
Board voted to dismiss Ewing from the
program on July 24, 1981, after he failed
the board exam. The board had
previously sent letters to Ewing war-
ning him that any further deficiencies
would result in dismissal.
Although the Board told Ewing he
could not be re-admitted to the Univer-
sity, they agreed to sponsor him if he
chose to retake the exam to apply to
other medical schools.
