Some of the topics we are discussing include, schedules, crewing, how you get on and off the shift and pay. Work life balance is the most important part of our discussions.

Once again, we had to endure a storm around a holiday, thank you all who played a roll in restoring power to the customers. With all the pressures we encountered during this storm event we were able to keep each other safe. Grievances have been filed in regard to this storm.

Take care and stay safe,
