Utility Union Threatens Strike During Historic Heatwave
Con Edison has authorized a strike if necessary; its contract expires at midnight Saturday
The second heat wave of the summer will again test the power grid in our area just as a deadline comes for a possible Con Edison strike.
Con Edison and its workers are in the middle of contract negotiations, with the current contract for Local 1-2 of the Utility Workers of America expiring at midnight Saturday.
Con Ed said it looked forward to "productive discussions with the union leadership on a new contract that's fair and equitable for our employees and customers."
