As of 11/4/2023 workers of Atlantic City Electric IBEW 210 will be on strike. “Our members are members of the community, not just employees of Atlantic City Electric (Exelon). We are volunteers in our firehouses, coaches of youth athletics, we are amongst the individuals supporting the local businesses and restaurants here in South Jersey where we all live.”
For years, Atlantic City Electric has pushed and separated its employees into tiers to break down the solidarity of our labor organization. But, it is not just the employees of Atlantic City Electric who have been impacted by the Corporate greed that affects our wages, our benefits, and our careers, but you as a paying customer are also affected by the same Corporate greed in your everyday lives. Your very own household feels the effects of Exelon’s big business mentality.
When you look at your electric bill, you don’t have to look hard to see exorbitant electric charges that have affected your checkbook. We pay those same bills. All of this while Atlantic City Electric has enjoyed massive profits. They raise their rates and raise your bill all while dismantling our retirement, diminishing our healthcare, and cutting back our workforce to squeeze every dollar they can out of us. Best of luck to the hard working men and women of Atlantic City Electric. Stand strong.
