On November 16th, Local 459 members employed with GenOn Maintenance Services, Mobile Maintenance department were informed that the group would be eliminated in early 2018. GenOn is currently a part of NRG and is in bankruptcy. GenOn plans to emerge as a stand-alone company and stated that the mobile maintenance group is not part of GenOn's plans for the future.
The first meeting between Union leadership and management is scheduled for November 29th and 30th. We will discuss the company’s decision in great detail as well as any options and the effects to the membership. Further meetings are anticipated and any new developments will be relayed to the affected members.
As a former Mobile Maintenance employee, I truly understand the unease and how difficult it can be to stay focused. Whether performing job assignments at a plant or more importantly, when you are with your families, please take time to think twice and make sure you are being safe and if needed, take a step back and refocus.
