Robert Heisler, Jr. – a member of the board of directors of Third Federal Savings & Loan’s parent company TFS Financial – is also a director of giant utility FirstEnergy Corp. Three days before Thanksgiving, FirstEnergy locked out utility workers in Pennsylvania in a ruthless scheme to impose cutbacks in employee benefits and customer service standards.
FirstEnergy forced these 150 employees at its Penelec utility out of their jobs to try to intimidate them to accept unfair concession demands during contract negotiations. In October, FirstEnergy also destroyed the jobs of nearly 200 Pennsylvania employees by closing two power plants – with no regard for the devastating impacts on local communities – and then tried to use the hardship imposed on the laid off workers to extract concessions from still other FirstEnergy employees.
In both cases, we wrote to Robert Heisler and other FirstEnergy directors, asking the directors to urge management to adopt more constructive labor relations policies. In both cases, Heisler refused even to respond to our letters. As far as we can tell, Robert Heisler has done nothing to speak out against FirstEnergy conduct that is hurting working families.
During this holiday season, we urge Third Federal customers to take action to help stop FirstEnergy’s unfair attacks on working families. Please speak with your Third Federal branch representative today, or contact Third Federal CEO Marc Stefanski at 888.844.7333 or by email at email@example.com.
Please ask Marc Stefanski and Third Federal to let Robert Heisler know that FirstEnergy must immediately end its lockout of Penelec employees in Pennsylvania and negotiate fair labor agreements with utility workers. Thank you for your support.
