Lewis Tree Workers Win First Contract
Twelve skilled workers at Lewis Tree in New Hampshire voted to accept their first contract in late-September 2023.
These employees won their union with IBEW Local 1837 back in January 2023 after expressing their dissatisfaction with the lack of benefits and fair pay being offered, especially when compared to other unionized units within the company.
The newly ratified contract includes an immediate 2.5% pay raise, followed by 3% raises in both 2024 and 2025.
While this is just the first contract, there is optimism about its potential for improvement over time. As we welcome these new union members, you can find them actively contributing on the Eversource distribution lines in New Hampshire.
