As Joint Steering Committee Chair, I have canceled the start of negotiations that were scheduled to start June 11th and 12th. The reason for cancelling is the failure by the company to provide the Union information requested and necessary for negotiations.
As soon as, necessary information is provided and analyzed by the Union we will schedule new dates.
With that said, the company has also requested that we as a union and employees help and join the fight against electrification that threatens all our jobs.
The Union’s position, is that we must first take care of contract negotiations and The Gas Company’s best asset (their employees), in order to fully join the fight.
