On July 20, 2009 representatives from PG&E and IBEW Local 1245 met to discuss what work is appropriately done by Troublemen and Electric Crews. The meeting was scheduled after questions were raised on when it is appropriate for one or more Troublemen to restore electric service versus calling out an Electric Crew from the Title 212 list.
As a result of this meeting, Local 1245 Business Manager Tom Dalzell and Bill Hayes, PG&E Vice President of Gas & Electric Distribution, requested that a Joint Company-Union Subcommittee meet to discuss specific scenarios and develop guidelines for distribution throughout the system.
The Company-Union Subcommittee is expected to meet within the next four weeks.
