I worked at El Paso Electric full-time (More than 3 years)
Overall I had good pay and good benefits which I didn't have to pay a great deal for ... For those who staying long enough, the pension is good and not likely to go away (various reasons). An overall good work environment. Very good safety record.
Maintenance budget had been cut a few years running and the shortfalls were catching up to us. A company is always trying to do more with less, but in a company where reliability and availability are a must, you can't push budget cutting to the point it hurts production. NO OT - Of the employers I've had in the power industry, there is a 50/50 chance each would offer overtime to salaried employees in cases were the work required went well beyond proper management of a professional workload. EPE was not one of them. Some friction between the Union and Management. There was occasionally unnecessary agitation on both sides. Overall not too bad though. The VP to whom we reported projected an air of negativity. The mission and values statements felt rather empty.
Advice to Management
If you want a job done and done right be willing to commit the resources to get it done. The company would benefit from a more mutually beneficial relationship with the union (you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours). This requires cultivating that relationship all of the time, not just around contract negotiation time.
