Lockout of Gas Workers to be Focus of Massachusetts Legislative Hearing


Massachusetts lawmakers are considering a bill that would require National Grid to provide health insurance to locked-out gas workers and prohibit public funds from flowing to the company until the labor dispute ends.

The bill scheduled for a legislative hearing on Tuesday is another sign of growing impatience among lawmakers over the lockout of 1,200 workers that began back in June.
Robert DeLeo, President of the Democratic Parliament, is among those calling for the National Network to end the lockout. State regulators have already acted temporarily to be temporarily out of service after an emergency gas operation led to the closure of a pressurization event to hundreds of Woburn houses in October.

National Grid, union leaders said they refused to oppose the key issues. Monday’s talks were expected to continue.
