DETROIT, March 13-The General Motors strike, costliest and longest
in automobile industry history, was settled today as the CIO United Auto
Workers union accepted a management offer of an 1812 cents an hour wage
increase plus adjustments of inequalities in wage rates in certain plants.
Hailing the settlement as a union victory, UAW-CIO top officials said
"other economic clauses," including improved vacation pay, improved over-
time rates and equal pay for women, "brings the total average hourly in-
crease well above 1912 cents" which --- -- -- -- - - ~~
the union had demanded.
"Well, that's the union's interpreta-
tion, G-M vice-president Harry W
Anderson said to the press yesterday.
"As a matter of fact, no one knows
what the adjustments will amount to.
They're to be dealt with on a local
level and until they are, the amount
yannot be determined."
General Motors said the contract to
be signed would run for two years;
that the flat increase of 18% cents
hourly would apply to all wage classi-
fication rates effective with the date
of ratification by the union and that
all employes who worked between
Nov. 7, 1945, two weeks before the
strike was called and the date of rati-
fication shall receive an increase of
131/2 cents an hour for all hours
worked between those dates.
The union, in its statement, said
the corporation had agreed to grant
the general increase to all miscellane-
ous units of employes, represented by
the UAW-CIO, including office and
clerical workers, technicians, plant
protection employes and other such

DETROIT, March 13-(P)-Despite

and the CIO United Auto Workers
leaders on strike settlement terms,
union pickets at GM's idle Detroit
plants today still trod their weary
beats-expressing determination to
stay out of the factories until local
grievances are adjudicated and a

the opinion that their demands could

Secretary of Labor Schwellenbach to-

"The issues have been resolved by
