Hubbell Power Systems Employees In Centralia Form Informational Pickett Line

An informational picket line formed by several Hubbell Power Systems employees in Centralia yesterday (Thursday), as the union is currently in negotiations over contracts.

Picketers held signs up that read hands off our pensions, and employees chanted on the sidewalk.

According to a spokesperson from the IUE-CWA union the protest was just a practice in case they have to go on strike.

According to the union employees have worked 19 days in a row and have had just 2 days off.

A spokesperson at Hubbell says the company is in negotiations with the union at the Centralia location, and they will not discuss ongoing negotiations.
