WOBURN – National Grid union workers were protesting again Wednesday while the company works to fix a mistake some believe wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for the lockout. The mistake is putting more pressure on National Grid to end the lockout, now entering its fourth month. “So anybody coming into the company, they don’t want them to have a pension anymore.”
A spokesperson for National Grid tells WBZ instead of a pension, new employees would be given 401K’s. National Grid telling WBZ they are frustrated by the lack of meetings since then.
Union president John Buonapane says after the incident in Woburn, he hopes National Grid will value the employees more.
