Eversource Workers in MA Reach Tentative Agreement
June 2, 2015 - Negotiators for the Utility Workers Union of America Local 369 and Eversource have reached a tentative contract agreement for workers at the former NStar in Massachusetts. A strike threat had been looming for weeks, potentially affecting workers in New Hampshire employed by the Company.
According to the UWUA Local 369 website, a ratification vote has been scheduled for June 11. Challenging issues during weeks of negotiations included job security, working conditions and health care.
"The medical was an issue and we came to an agreement on that," said Dan Hurley, the president of the Utility Workers Union of America Local 369 on their website. "There were a lot of issues there yesterday morning, but we worked through them."
