Members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 636, representing 69 GrandBridge Energy employees, voted to accept an Offer of Settlement for a new collective agreement on Friday, May 12, 2023.
GrandBridge Energy employees, who are IBEW 636 members, will resume their services as of May 12 at 3:00 p.m., ending a labour disruption that began at 12:01 a.m. on Sunday, April 23, 2023.
The IBEW represents GrandBridge Energy employees in Operations, Metering, Field Services, and the System Control Room. The offer was presented by the IBEW to its membership on May 12, followed by a ratification vote where IBEW members voted to accept the offer.
“We are pleased that we reached an agreement that is acceptable to the membership and the company,” said Ian Miles, President & CEO, GrandBridge Energy. “We appreciate our customers’ patience during the labour disruption and we are happy to be back to a full complement of employees. We apologize for any inconvenience and delays in service that the labour disruption has caused. We expect there will continue to be some service delays while our crews work through the backlog of rescheduled appointments and requests.”
