It is with a great sadness to announce the passing of former Local 424 member and executive board member Ron Wolf. Ron dedicated himself to this local with all his heart. He was a fun, caring, and intelligent man who was an asset to our local and we thank him for his service. R.I.P. Ron.
After an extension on the negotiations from November 21st until December 6th due to Hurricane Sandy, a vote was taken today to ratify a new contract. It passed and we have an agreement for the next 3 years. Please contact our executive board if you are an allied Union looking for information on our agreement.
A one year contract extension was voted in today with a few additional perks thrown in by the company. As is our policy, the vote totals are only known to the Executive Board.
The Executive Board brought to the membership a 1 year contract extension that was offered by the company. In a secret ballot vote the extension was rejected starting the wheels turning for a full blown negotiation.

The Union played the company today in a charity softball game to benefit members who are out on long term disability. The Union won the game by a score of 14-4 but in reality, everybody won. Local 424 would like to thank the company, AGL Resources/Elizabethtown Gas and their management for their participation in this event.
Special thanks to Kathleen Neiman, Staci Sujkowski, Chuck Krapf, and Tom DiFranco for their hard work in putting this together. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of our members who are out with a disability. We wish you all a speedy recovery and hope to see you soon.
