The union`s application of these agreements through the appeals process has yielded many additional documents that clarify and expand these rights. EU administrators rely on these documents – which can be found via the PG-E Contract Section Index – to protect the rights of MPs in the workplace. We think this is a very good agreement, particularly if we look at all of the competitive challenges we have faced in recent years, including proposed corporate reductions by office workers, threats of municipalization, intrusion of distributed energy resources, micro-grids, efforts to reduce natural gas and speed pressure, which includes reducing costs and reducing violence. The agreement we reached in the midst of one of the largest and most costly corporate bankruptcies in American history is nothing short of monumental. Traditionally, when companies go bankrupt, it is the workers who end up paying the price – whether it`s reducing mass layoffs, losing old age security and/or dramatically reducing benefits and wages – but thanks to our diligence and the power we built together, we not only managed to maintain everything we had, but we finally managed to move forward. This is truly outrageous and says a lot about both the enormous power of our Union and the intrinsic value that our members offer to the company and the communities they serve. We can now report and discuss the terms of the four-year contract renewal that we negotiated with PG-E as part of the turnaround plan. We have already ratified a two-year extension for 2020 and 2021, so that this new four-year agreement will be concluded until 2025. In our view, this agreement reflects a real recognition by the management of the GMP,50 that the company`s recovery depends in large part on the hard work of 1245 IBEW Local members, who have experienced constant instability for more than 20 years. With wages, benefits, hours and protected working conditions for the next six years, our members can focus on their work. However, the best way to find the documents you need is to use the PG-E Contract Section Index below.
Here`s how it goes: Find the sections of the physical or clerical setting that are relevant to your problem. By clicking on the icon, you access a specific page in the index of the contract section, which lists all decisions and agreements related to this section of the contract. You will find brief descriptions of each decision/agreement as well as live links to the documents themselves. This way, you can view, view and/or print a copy of a document that may be relevant to your claim. Our regulatory, labour and bankruptcy lawyers continue to analyze the issue of ratification. Although the agreement is remarkably good and has no concessions, we would generally present it to our members in a ratification vote. The intersection between labour and bankruptcy law raises unique and difficult questions. We will inform you as soon as we have the final deliberation of our various lawyers and we have made our decision. Hitachi Rail (formerly AnsaldoBreda) contacted Cruz Serna for a copy of this agreement IBEW 1245 represents about 12,000 PG-E employees in physical and clerical classifications. Our employment contracts at the GMP over the years have criteria for the supply industry. And we`re not done! As a result of negotiations with the company, IBEW 1245 and PG-E have reached an agreement that we believe will bring our members the stability they so desperately need by 2025.
This four-year contract, which follows our two-year contract renewal, contains significant improvements in wages, without concessions.
