Con Edison seeks court intervention in union protests

0

Con Edison filed a request for judicial intervention on Tuesday asking the state Supreme Court to impose limits on the Utility Workers Union of America’s members’ protests outside Con Edison properties.

The utility is alleging that the union members are unlawfully intimidating employees and blocking entrances and exits to its properties, among other illegal activities. Here are a few pages from the lengthy document that detail alleged misconduct by the union in Westchester County.

Con Edison locked out about 8,500 union members on Sunday after talks broke down on a new labor contract. The old four-year contract expired at midnight on Saturday.
