After many meetings, beginning in November, I am happy to report that Local 94 has reached a Tentative Agreement with NAES Company on a 3 year contract for our members working at the Linden Co-Generation plant. This is our first renegotiated contract since the employees voted to be unionized and ratified their first contract in 2017. The agreement provides an increase in wages of 3%, 3%, and 2.75%, improvements in wage progression, severance allowance, and the establishment of double time pay. A communication meeting is scheduled for Monday, December 16th at 4pm and 6pm, at Frenchyâ€™s on Westfield Ave, in Rochelle Park and a voting will be at the plant on Thursday, December 19th, from 5am till 730am. If ratified, the agreement will be in effect until December 31, 2022. Â
My thanks to the negotiating committee Adam Neuman, Dave Bishop, and Tom Turon for a job well done.
