Service Planning and GDPM&E Negotiations 11/28, Conference Call 11/29

The ESC committees for Service Planning and GDPM&E met with management on Tuesday, November 14.  Management continues to stress the importance of concluding negotiations by the end of the year and beginning to implement the new provisions in January.

Call-in information:

The ESC committee continues to negotiate on the main topics of relocations, NBR field checking, and emergency and storm response.

Regarding GDPM&E, it seems that the same relocation criteria as for Service Planning could apply to this group as well.  This would ensure consistent treatment and options for all Gas Estimators, regardless of which department they are in, as well as Gas Distribution Engineers and Senior DE’s.

The next bargaining session will be Tuesday, November 28.  The Wednesday, November 29 call will provide the most recent updates regarding this process.
