Making Con Edison See the Light


Unions and community organizations from across the city marched in support of locked-out Con Ed workers on July 24. Con Ed locked out 8,500 full-time workers from UWUA Local 1-2 on July 1. Two days after the rally, Con Ed and Local 1-2 reached a tentative contract agreement, ending the lockout. According to Labor Press, the new contract would grant an 11% pay raise over four years, impose higher medical costs and protect the company’s defined benefit pension plan for current workers.
