PSEG Long Island workers OK 4-year contract with cumulative 15.5% pay hike
Patrick Guidice, business manager of Local 1049, said 536 members voted in favor of the new contract, while 329 voted against it. There are 1,397 unionized PSEG workers, 907 of whom participated in the ratification vote, Guidice said. Approximately 40 votes were voided for technical reasons.
Guidice said the wage increase, while it falls short of current inflation rates, was “acceptable to us.” The new contract also includes unspecified improvements in a pension for unionized workers.
