Facts on the Zadroga Bill
Dear Brothers and Sisters, Here are some facts about the Zadroga bill that you may find useful when sharing the video.  There are many people who think this bill only affects New York, but the facts are staggering as to how many responders and survivors, in all parts of our country, have been impacted.

Utility Workers Safety Bill

Unions Hope Cuomo Signs Utility Worker Safety Bill
The utility worker assault bill is now on Governor Cuomo's desk and union leaders are hoping he will sign it soon. As we discussed back in the spring, the measure would increase the penalties for attacking a utility worker. Joining us from New York City to explain more is Pat Guidice from IBEW Local 1049.
NRG Negotiations 2016

            May 17, 2016    

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

     The results of the Contract between IBEW LU 503 and NRG(GenOn) are in. The membership overwhelmingly ratified this Contract. The vote was 29 for and 4 against totaling 33 out of 36 eligible members entitled to vote on this Contract.

     We would like to thank the Committee Members for all of their hard work and dedication throughout bargaining. The membership at NRG property should be extremely proud of the time and effort put forward by the Committee.

     This contract is a 5 year deal with wage increases equaling 12.75% respectfully as well as additional $1000 bonuses for the first 2 years. The vacation schedule was enhanced for newer members and the medical plan remained unchanged. There was an enhancement to the 401k plan allowing for all gross earnings to be calculated towards contributions. Our members will continue to receive benefits as current with some enhancements.

     In the Utility Industry we believe this is a fair and equitable Contract ensuring our members financial security for the next 5 years.

     Thank you all for your continued support, without it this would not have been possible.


Fraternally Yours,

Scott Jensen

President/Business Manager

Hello Union Members,                                 

We continued negotiating with the Company today.  Tomorrow we have a federal mediator involved with negotiations.

Progress is very slow.

The Company is not interested in any pension proposal. They are also not offering up the $15 co-pay plan.

The strike lists are being circulated throughout the plant. 

Our International Rep. will be joining us tomorrow, as we continue to negotiate for a fair contract.

United we bargain!! Divided we beg!!

Letter from President Scott Jensen

Dear Brothers & Sisters,

It is with great pleasure to inform you that this year’s 5k run/walk fundraiser for the Wounded Warrior project raised $5,500. This year’s event was graced with the presence of the US Army Reserves Honor Guard and members, who performed the opening ceremony.

The generous contributions from the many sponsors, 503 members, 50/50 sales, raffle donations and the participants themselves contributed to the overall success of the event for which this Local Union is proud.

Special thanks to Vice President Ken Titland and Recording Secretary Linda Petrosky for another outstanding job organizing the event. Thanks to Steve Rinaldi and the 3-385th Regiment, the many volunteers, sponsors, donators and all of the runners/walkers that participated in making this such a special and successful event.

Thanks Again,
Scott Jensen
President/Business Manager
