IBEW, PG&E EXCHANGE BARGAINING PROPOSALS
Negotiators for IBEW Local 1245 and Pacific Gas & Electric exchanged opening proposals on June 7 as general bargaining got underway at Weakley Hall in Vacaville.
Opening remarks were delivered by Local 1245 Business Manager Tom Dalzell and PG&E President Chris Johns, both of whom paid tribute to the parties’ long relationship and continuing desire to resolve issues at the bargaining table.
The opening proposals submitted by both sides are available on this Local 1245 website. Local 1245 will provide continuing updates on bargaining as the process moves forward.
The company and union both indicated that proposals relating to medical benefits could be introduced at a later date in the negotiations.
The parties will study each other’s proposals over the summer and could establish subcommittees to work on specific issues. Bargaining will begin around Labor Day.
