Con Ed Locks Out Workers Following Failed Contract Talks

Con Ed officials said they offered to extend the current contract until July 14 in an effort to reach a new deal, and sent NY1 a signed document showing it made the offer.

The company says it dismissed the workers because it could not get assurances from the union that it would not call a sudden strike. The utility also says the contract extension offer remained on the table.

"We offered a two-week extension of the current contract letting all of the members continue to work this week and the next, as long as there was no threat of a strike or a work stoppage for our customers, and the union leadership refused," said Con Ed spokesman Michael Clendenin.

The union disputed those claims, as a spokesman said the two-week extension offer was never made, and said workers told Con Ed they would were willing to work without a contract until negotiations could continue.

I don’t think people trust the word of Union leadership anymore.
Are you trying for the Understatement of the Millennium Award for the 3rd Millennium?

The good news is, you might have a winner here.

The bad news is you have to wait for the spring of 3000 for the awards to be announced.

I will accept your apology, also, for not being intellectually honest. That’s what FR is all about.

Intellectually honest, yes. Correct, no. I stand corrected. Not sure that calls for an apology but if one is in order, you have mine.

Will Obama be on Mt Rushmore by then?
