Hello Brothers and Sisters,

It has been extremely hot lately making outdoor working conditions difficult.  Drinking plenty of water and taking breaks helps keep you safe in these extreme conditions.

I have been getting a lot of calls regarding the Talen Bankruptcy.  The process is moving along without any impact to benefits, pay and pension.  The Montour gas project is underway.

At PPL we have 2 classes Lineman Trainees at Walberts Training Center.  A total of 28 trainees are being trained for their careers as lineman and we welcome every one of them.

There are many items being worked on such as the Material Department M.A. which was rejected back in 2020 & 2021.  Hopefully the parties can iron out the issues with mutual gains to both.

Congratulations to Brookfield negotiating committee and our members on ratifying a new contract.

Be safe,
President Frank E.G.

Our UNION and PPL have reached an agreement in an effort to help resolve the customer electric billing issues. The company will promote 15 CSA2s to CSA3 B03 step 1. The company will also temporarily promote 32 CSA2s to CSA3 B03 step 1 for 3 months. The company also agreed to pay the UNION monthly dues equal to CSA2 B01 step 1 for each contracted FTE in excess of the bargaining unit headcount if the company exceeds the contractor ratio for more than one month. Full details can be found in MA 23-0020.
