The holiday season is here and I would like to start by wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a Happy New Year. With the year coming to an end, I can't express how proud I am to represent the workforce that keeps the power running on Long Island. For our members at National Grid, this year's holiday brought with it a new contract that will ensure labor peace through February of 2021.
I am also happy to announce that our union is growing. This holiday season we are welcoming new members from Altice. These members have spent the last few years organizing their workplaces with Local 1049 organizer Bill O'Leary and recently filed to join our Local. Welcome to all of our new members.
I hope that everyone enjoys their holiday and gets to spend some time with your friends and family. Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!
