IBEW Local 1245 is organizing a rally and picket in New York City on March 25 to protest an award being presented to NV Energy by Assets International. The award is for “excellence in benefits.”
Local 1245 has urged the CEO of Assets International to withdraw the award because NV Energy has failed to keep its promise to retirees to provide medical benefits in retirement.
Several organizations have already endorsed Local 1245’s action in New York, including IBEW Local 3, the New York City Central Labor Council, UNITE-HERE! Local 6, and UNITE-HERE! Local 100.
Catholic Scholars for Worker Justice has also endorsed the rally and sent a letter to the CEO of Assets International asking him to withdraw the award offer. (See link to their letter on the Local 1245 home page).
