On Friday, February 8th the IBEW 29 members that work at People’s Gas voted to accept the newly negotiated contract 23 - 0. We currently have 26 members that were eligible to vote, of which 23 actually voted. Although the new contract was not spectacular, it was very solid, with something for everyone.
I want to thank the negotiating committee for all of their hard work and effort that they put into getting the best contract possible. A special thanks to Mickey Maloney, Lynn Petrie and Garth Rae for all of the input that they contributed as part of the committee, their input was invaluable in getting to an agreement. The other members on the committee were Nicole Greb (Sr Business Rep), Glenn Camp (President/Assistant Business Manager), Kris Anderson (International Rep) and myself, Kenn Bradley (Business Manager
The Committee wants to thank all of the members that work at People’s Gas for your support during negotiations and for taking the time to come out and vote. It was a great turnout getting 23 out of 26 members to vote, every vote is important to show the company that you care about your contract and you will come out and vote. The next contract is less than 3 years away, and we will remind them that our members will be coming out to vote!!
Your Negotiating Committee
