Tentative agreement reached between Con Ed and union workers

(06/27/04) GLEN COVE, LONG ISLAND - Con Edison officials and 8,600 Con Ed union workers have reached a tentative agreement for a new contract.

Officials of Local 1-2 of the Utility Workers Union of America say the four-year agreement will increase wages and improve pensions and medical benefits. Union officials say the agreement will go before the union's executive board for approval before union members vote on ratification. A Con Ed spokesman says the company is pleased to have reached an agreement.

Union workers had planned to strike at 12:01 a.m. Sunday unless a new deal was reached. The deadline had been extended twice so Con Ed officials and the Utility Workers Union of America could continue negotiating.
