Approximately 30 union employees of Allegheny Power conducted an hour-long informational picket Wednesday afternoon at the utility company's Downsville Pike headquarters.
"We are hoping to attract the public's attention to some issues we have with the company," said Joe Moser, an area vice president of Utility Workers Union of America Local 102.
Moser said those issues include inequities in wage increases, concessions in health care benefits and other factors that caused workers to reject the company's June 2001 contract offer.
"These are long-standing issues ... we're just trying to get some action," Moser said.
A spokesman for Allegheny Power said that while the company respects the union's right to express its views as it chooses, officials believe the company's offer is fair.
