BAKER GETTING MORE VOCAL OVER NATIONAL GRID LOCKOUT

By Chris Triunfo
STATE HOUSE NEWS SERVICE

BOSTON, OCT. 10, 2018....Locked out steelworkers aimed their bullhorns and pointed their picket signs up at the Prudential Center Wednesday, calling for the resignation of National Grid Massachusetts President Marcy Reed from the board of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts.

Missing from their signs and chants were Gov. Charlie Baker's name. In the past, the unionized steelworkers have been seen calling the governor out for his alleged inaction or simply asking for his help.

When Baker toured a mock-up of a new Red Line car in August, he was flanked by locked out workers who held signs high above the crowd. On Sept. 2, union presidents Joe Kirylo and John Buonopane published an editorial in The Metrowest Daily News imploring readers to "...please pick up your phone, or get on email and ask Gov. Charlie Baker to tell National Grid to put public safety first and stop punishing the families of unionized gas workers."
