Senator Sal DiDomenico recently joined with union gas workers and his colleagues in the Massachusetts Legislature at a State House rally in support of ending the National Grid lockout. This four-month lockout by National Grid has cost more than 1,200 union gas workers their jobs and has cost the state millions in lost tax revenue, as well as more than $13 million in unemployment benefits, according to a recent analysis by the Baker Administration.
At the rally, Senator DiDomenico voiced his strong support for the gas workers and urged a quick end to the lock out. “This National Grid lockout has gone on for far too long,” said DiDomenico. “It is critical that we put public safety first, and it’s time that we get our union workers back on the job! I’m proud to stand with them today as they fight for their livelihoods and public safety for our communities!”
