National Grid is jeopardizing the safety of our communities by locking out 1,100 of its most experienced employees who are critical to ensuring safe and quality gas work in Massachusetts.

The 9/1/18 United Steelworkers Basic Labor Agreement (BLA) provides for a profit-sharing pool of 7.5% of the Company's profits, defined as Earnings Before Interest and Taxes (EBIT). The Company reported an unauduted adjusted EBIT of (-$5,491,152.90). As a result there was no profit sharing generated for the pool using the Basic Labor Agreement calculations. 

An important message from our President:

The first Labor Day in our nation was celebrated on September 5, 1882 in New York City
