Con Edison workers are threatening to strike on July 1 if contract negotiations aren’t worked out when the old deal expires at midnight Saturday, Reuters’ Scott DiSavino reports: If the 8,500 Con Ed workers do walk off, that would leave managers and any crews the company can hire to fix whatever problems arise as 8.2 million New Yorkers crank up their air conditioners to beat the heat.
