Hearing to Look at ConEd Safety Record
A New York State Assembly committee hearing is being held to examine Con Edison's service and safety record since a lockout of its 8,500 unionized workers.
The hearing is scheduled for Wednesday in Manhattan.
About 5,000 managers have been keeping electricity going for 3.2 million customers in New York City and Westchester County since the workers were locked out June 30 after their contract expired.
Con Edison says it has been responding to emergencies efficiently despite several heat waves.
Neither side has reported any real progress in negotiations.
