“On behalf of our 12,000 members at PG&E, we would like to express our congratulations to PG&E’s new Board of Directors, and offer a welcome to the company’s incoming CEO, Bill Johnson.
“While we do not yet have personal relationships with the new members of the Board, we respect their experience and appreciate the expertise that they are bringing to the company. And we look forward to working closely with Bill Johnson, who comes highly recommended by our IBEW sister locals who have worked with him at other utilities in the past.
“The Chapter 11 bankruptcy and subsequent re-organization have presented a monumental task, and now that the new leadership of the company is in place, we hope to work collaboratively to build a better, brighter PG&E moving forward. By working together, we believe that we can and will re-establish a culture of operational excellence, ensuring that these are the first words that come to mind when people think of PG&E.”
