DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - Vectren Energy's Workers Union of America Local 175 employee voted Friday afternoon to ratify a new three-year contract.
UWUA Local 175 represents nearly 130 of Vectren's natural gas employees in the greater Dayton area.
The previous contract expired October 31. The employees rejected the original three-year proposal on November 16 at which time they were not permitted to continue working. Both parties met with a federal mediator on Monday, November 26 to come up with the tentative agreement which was approved Friday by union members.
Those employees will return to work on Monday.
