    Default Nearly 1,000 Gas Workers Union Members Affected By Dominion Lockout

    Not good!

    DELMONT (KDKA) – More than 900 Dominion employees across six states, including Pennsylvania, are off the job today, following a lockout.

    The workers, many of whom work in natural gas, learned about the lockout when they showed up for work last night.

    The lockout affects nearly 300 workers all across Pennsylvania, including about 50 who work in Delmont. The workers say they’re ready to get back to work.

    I guess a fair wage, insurance, and a pension are more than these gazzion dollar a year in profit gas companies can afford? Or is it the executives feel they might see a slight dip in the millions they take?

    Dominion lockout continues; no date set for new negotiations

    Doesn't sound like this is going to get resolved any time soon.

    BRIDGEPORT — The lockout of union employees by Dominion Transmission and Dominion Hope continues, preventing over 915 unionized gas workers from returning to work, according to Craig Bradford, president of United Gas Workers Union Local 69.

    “Local 69 members are ready and willing to come back to work,” Bradford said. “We have a severe concern for public safety. We don’t believe that the current workers can operate the equipment as effectively and efficiently as we can.”

    Union leadership and Dominion representatives met with a federal mediator on Sept. 8, shortly after the lockout began. However, no agreement was reached.

    Bradford said that the issues preventing an agreement with the federal mediator were the same issues that caused the dispute to begin with: pensions and health care for new hires. Bradford also said that before the lockout, the union offered the company an agreement that would allow the union members to continue to work, provided they agreed not to go on strike during negotiations. He says this offer still stands, but the company will not accept the agreement.
