Dominion Energy respects and recognizes the right of its employees to bargain collectively through representatives of their own choosing for rates of pay, wages, hours of employment, working conditions and other employment-related issues.
Nearly one-third of our employees are union members, and we are committed to building and maintaining relationships with the local unions in eight states that represent them. The company bargains collectively and in good faith with the following locals in accordance with the National Labor Relations Act and consistent with the highest ethical standards:
- International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers – Local Union 50
- Utility Workers Union of America (Gas Workers Union), Local G-555, AFL-CIO
- Utility Workers Union of America (United Gas Workers’ Union), Local 69, AFL-CIO
- Utility Workers Union of America, Local 310, AFL-CIO
In late 2017 the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) signed Project Labor Agreements with the nation’s four leading building-and-construction trade unions. The agreements reaffirm the ACP project’s commitment to hiring skilled union workers. Under the agreement, the four trade unions are responsible for hiring and training the 13,000 workers needed to build the pipeline. The unions have committed to hiring at least half of the construction workforce through local union membership in West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina, and to hire at least 25 percent of new hires (persons joining the trade unions for the first time) from local communities along the pipeline route.
The four trade unions are:
- The Laborers’ International Union of North America (LiUNA)
- Teamsters National Pipeline
- International Union of Operating Engineers; and
- United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipe Fitting Industry of the United States.
