An Update from the IBEW Local 1245 Bargaining Committee
IBEW Local 1245 and NV Energy continue to bargain at least two and, most weeks, three days per week. To date we have met with the company at the table approximately 38 days.
We have tentatively agreed to approximately 23 modifications of the collective bargaining agreement.
Recently the company withdrew all outstanding proposals with the exception of what they are calling their “nine essential items”. These include:
Title 2.2 (Proposed) – Right to promulgate reasonable rules
Title 4 – Wages
Title 6 – Flexibility regarding work schedules
Title 19.4 – Agreement on benefits company provides
Title 22 – Benefits including Cash Balance
Title 23 – Effective demotion/layoff language
Title 24.1 – Evergreen language on contract duration
Tracy/Ft. Churchill subcommittee
Two new positions and one position revision in Generation
Union proposals remaining “on the table” include:
Title 4 – Attachment I Exhibit A(1) – Wages and STIP
Attachment I Exhibit A(1) – Shift premium
Title 22 – Retirement
Title 22 – Post Retirement Medical
Title 11 – Holidays
Title 15 – Family sick leave
Job descriptions and lines of progression
Two sub committees AMI, Apprenticeship
Although these lists have been reduced in size in recent days the biggest issues remain. We expect an economic proposal from the Company in the near future. This should include wages, STIP, shift premium and related items. The Company has described their wage proposal as “market based” from the beginning.
