We have been tied up in negotiations:
· 97c, clerical unit out of Syracuse, contract has been ratified. They have a 4 ½ year contract with 2% general wage increases, job spec changes, they will now also have a core contribution added to their 401k plan and will participate in a bonus program.
· Town of Worcester contract was voted on and rejected by this six member unit. They felt they were not getting enough of a general wage increase. We have given their concerns to the Town Board and waiting for an answer.
· Service Employees – we have met and will be meeting again in January to try and get a contract.
The lawsuit was dropped by Entergy so hoping we can get the Dunkirk Power Plant repowered. We are still in the stage to make sure the companies who were on board are still interested. It will take some time for that to happen.
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
