ARTICLE XVII
Efficiency and Productivity

The objective of this provision is to relate adjustments in wages
and benefits in future negotiations to a corresponding increase
in work productivity resulting from the collective efforts of all
employees and the Company.

The future of each employee and the Company as a whole
is dependent upon continually improving acceptance by the
public. Competitive cost is the key factor in acceptance, so it is
essential that operations be conducted as efficiently as possible.
Productivity is a major feature in efficient operations.

The Company and the Union mutually agree to work
cooperatively toward the objectives of this Article.
