Retirement plans were high on the agenda when Local 1245 stewards from NV Energy convened at the Airport Plaza Hotel in Reno on May 13.
Nearly two hours was spent discussing Cash Balance retirement plans with Neff McGhie, a pension actuary. Stewards also took a look at an actuarial study comparing the current retirement plan with the sort of plan the company might propose in upcoming bargaining.
Other topics included safety, in particular the use of personal protective equipment, and the proper use of company computers.
The bargaining committee was named for upcoming negotiations with NV Energy. Members serving on the committee will be Tom Cornell, Gary Bailey, Reto Gross, Michelle Ramsey, Dan Lyday, Scott Hildebrand, and Louis Kelly.
Leading the conference was Business Manager Tom Dalzell, Assistant Business Manager Dennis Seyfer, Business Rep. Randy Osborn, and Dale Huntsman, a former bargaining committee member, now retired.
