CON EDISON STATEMENT
NEW YORK – We would like to thank Governor Andrew Cuomo for his support and guidance in helping Con Edison and the leadership of UWUA Local 1-2 reach a tentative agreement that is fair and equitable for our employees and customers. We look forward to our union employees returning to work.
We also want to thank Mayor Michael Bloomberg for his continued strong leadership, as well as the Office of Emergency Management, NYPD, FDNY, DOT and other city agencies for their extensive assistance in supporting our operations during the labor dispute. A special thanks also goes to Westchester County Executive Robert Astorino, the Westchester County Department of Emergency Services, Westchester County Department of Public Safety, and all of the municipal police departments and other agencies.
We appreciate the efforts of everyone involved in the talks to reach this agreement.
