Weymouth — More than 100 utility workers at power plants in Weymouth and Everett are preparing to go on strike at midnight as a deadline looms to reach agreement on a new contract with Maryland-based Constellation Energy. The union employees are protesting what they have described as “dramatic health care and unsafe staffing cuts” proposed by Constellation management as the corporation pursues a multi-billion-dollar merger with Exelon Energy of Illinois. Negotiators have set a midnight deadline to reach a deal.

“It’s outrageous that these two out-of-state energy corporations are trying to impose dramatic staff and manpower cuts that threaten the safety of Massachusetts residents,” Dan Hurley, president of Utility Workers of America Local 369, stated. “Constellation stands to reap millions in bonuses from this merger, but it should not come at the expense of the hardworking men and women who live and work in Massachusetts. We hope our supporters across the Commonwealth will join us in opposing these disgraceful actions."

Spineless pawns, everyone of them. Their faith is lukewarm and I shall spew them out and to their Republican masters.
