Leaders of IBEW locals in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont met with company representatives in Manchester, NH, today.

Our goal was to present proposals to the company that would reduce the surplus and create more vacancies and opportunities for movement within the company. We had an energetic exchange of ideas; however, we have not reached any agreement yet.

Although we have requested a current seniority list from the company, they have not provided one. Company representatives have said they want to conclude the layoff by the middle of July.

We will continue to update members as the process unfolds. We appreciate your unity and support at this difficult time.

In solidarity,

Peter McLaughlin
Business Manager, IBEW Local 2327
