Ratified Labour Agreement Reached Between Maritime Electric and IBEW
August 10, 2023 – Charlottetown, PE – Last night, Maritime Electric members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 1928 voted in favour of ratifying a tentative agreement that was reached on Tuesday.
With the assistance of a government-appointed conciliator, Maritime Electric and IBEW representatives recently met for two days and negotiated a final contract that avoids a strike and disruption of service to customers.
“I am pleased that we reached a mutually agreeable outcome that benefits our employees, our customers and the Company,” said Jason Roberts, Maritime Electric President & CEO. “I want to thank both negotiating teams for their work and professionalism in reaching this positive outcome.”
