The unions are asking the PSC to investigate service deterioration during the Con Edison lockout and are seeking an order from the Commission requiring Con Edison, on an interim basis, to halt its lockout of approximately 8,000 unionized workers. The unions cited imminent safety and reliability threats arising from the Company's reliance on managers and others not familiar with the Con Edison distribution system and procedures for maintaining it safely and reliably. The ruling granted the unions' request for permission to reply. PULP's Request for Intervention and PULP's request for a Reply opportunity were also granted.
In addition, the ruling states that "any other interested persons wishing to comment on the Union’s petition and Con Ed’s response to the Union’s petition may submit them electronically to the Secretary by e-filing through the Department’s Document and Matter Management System (DMM), on or before July 30, 2012...."
