January 18, 1987|ROSS NEWHAN

In its "Game Plan '87," a 40-page booklet designed to familiarize National Football League players with issues and tactics in the collective bargaining negotiations, the NFL Players Assn. lists eight issues it has set a priority on pursuing.

They are:

--Free agency.

--Guaranteed contracts.

--Improvements in the pension plan.

--Protection for player representatives and union officers from management harassment and discrimination, or discharge.

--Improvement of the existing chemical dependency prevention program.

--Faster, more effective grievance arbitration.

--Improvements in other benefits and player rights.

--Shorter terms for the collective bargaining agreement.
