PG&E filed a plan supplement that includes their schedules of assumed and rejected contracts. They confirm in the body of the contract assumption notice that they are assuming all collective bargaining agreements (CBAs). They then list out a number of agreements with the IBEW. Our concern is that they do not include any amount for cure.
We have followed up with PG&E’s counsel to try to get confirmation they will accept our language making it clear that grievances will be resolved post-petition in the ordinary course of business. That will resolve our concerns over cure—otherwise, they’d have a technical bankruptcy argument that the pre-petition grievances are barred.
Objection deadline for the plan and cure notices are both May 15. If we can’t get to resolution in the next week, we will take action with the court to address these issues.
