MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING
Selection of TFIR-1’s
(Transmission Field Inspection Report)
- Local management will determine the number of TFIR-1’s that will be trained and operator qualified (OQ’d) at each reporting location.
- Employees within each reporting location from the Fitter Leader and Fitter Operator classifications will be grouped together and asked by seniority if they wish to volunteer to TFIR, until the full complement of required TFIR-1’s are identified. If additional TFIR-1’s are needed, employees from the above group will be polled for volunteers based on seniority. In the event there are not enough volunteers to fill the required number if TFIR-1’s, the number will be filled using reverse seniority.
- Once an employee is selected, trained, and OQ’d, he/she will remain a TFIR-1 until they are no longer able to perform the duties due to job bidding, retirement or termination. In this case, management will determine if additional TFIR-1’s are needed and employee(s) from the above group will be polled for volunteers based on seniority. In the event there are not enough volunteers to fill the required number if TFIR-1’s, the number will be filled using reverse seniority.
- Local management will consider requests from designated TFIR-1’s wishing to be relieved from TFIR duties, on a case-by-case basis.
- Local management will assign TFIR inspection work as part of the daily work assignment as per Article III, Section 1.

- Assist in isolating, shutting or blowing down of transmission and storage pipelines
Job Bidding / Selection
- A Company-wide selection process, by company seniority, will be followed for the initial manning of the T&S Workgroup (i.e. the bidders’ current work location will not be a factor in selection). For purposes of future bidding into the T&S Workgroup, bidders from within the T&S Workgroup will have first priority before bidding goes Company-wide.

- Work Group Leader must have no less than three (3) years job experience (cumulative) in one or more of the following classifications: Work Group Leader (Construction), Fitter Leader; Fitter, Fitter Operator, Welder or Equipment Operator (Note: Selection for this position is not subject to the 4/25/06 agreement regarding non-qualified bidders). In the event that no qualified bids are received for this position, the Company reserves the right to discontinue the selection process and abandon the creation of a T&S Workgroup.
- Successful bidders for Fitter Operator positions must:

- Vacancy Backfilling
- For the initial staffing of the T&S Workgroup, the Company will post and backfill all vacancies that result from employees bidding to the T&S Workgroup, with the exception of vacancies which may result within Meter Reader and SLLS classifications.
- When filling T&S Workgroup vacancies that occur subsequent to the initial manning of the workgroup, the Company will post and backfill only those vacancies that occur in Workgroup Leader (Construction), Fitter Leader and Fitter Operator classifications which result from employees bidding to the T&S Workgroup.
- For purposes of future bidding, crewmembers will retain bidding rights from the shop from which they bid when they originally entered the T&S O&M Workgroup.
- When crewmembers are required to report directly to a job site location, or to a location other than their Greensburg reporting location, overtime for travel will be paid if additional travel time is incurred. Payment will be limited to the incremental difference in travel time between the employee’s normal commute to Greensburg, and the commute to the job site location.
- Crewmembers will be expected to work overtime related to T&S projects, and if an employee is needed for overtime work, the employee shall be obligated to work unless he or she can provide a reasonable explanation.
- T&S Workgroup crewmembers will be placed on the auxiliary callout list of their Home Reporting Location (the shop from which they bid when they originally entered the T&S Workgroup).
Reporting and Travel Requirements Definitions:
Reporting Location – The official reporting location of the T&S Workgroup will be the Greensburg headquarters.
Home Reporting Location – The location from which the employee bid, when he/she was selected for the T&S Workgroup.
Job Site Location – The location of a specific Transmission and Storage facility project.
- Although the crew’s reporting location will be Greensburg, it will be responsible for working throughout the Company’s service territory.
- Equipment will be primarily housed at Greensburg, although a Company reporting location closer to the job location may be utilized to stage equipment on a temporary basis.
- Crewmembers will be expected to report to Greensburg at normal starting time, unless instructed to report directly to the job site location, or to a Company reporting location other than Greensburg.
- To the fullest extent possible, and where available, Company vehicles will be provided for travel to other reporting locations, as necessary. Company vehicles may be taken home on a project-by-project basis. If personal vehicles are used for travel to other reporting locations, mileage will be reimbursed at the IRS rate. Reimbursement will be limited to the incremental difference in distance between the employee’s normal commute to Greensburg, and the distance to the job site location.
- Subject to Management approval, and when projects extend for multiple days, crewmembers will be permitted to stay overnight at job site locations that would otherwise require excessive travel time to and from the employees’ home. These situations will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
- Basic crew complement will consist of one (1) Work Group Leader (Construction) and four (4) Fitter Operators.
- If additional crewmembers are required for a specific project, employees from within the Company reporting headquarters where to the job site is located will be utilized. (For example: If a particular T&S jobsite is located within the geographic boundaries of the Johnstown reporting area, additional crewmembers, if necessary, will come from the Johnstown reporting location.)
- Upgrades to fill temporary Work Group Leader absences due to vacation, short- term illness, etc., will come from within the workgroup.
- Fitter Operators who meet the three (3) year experience requirement outlined in the Labor Agreement under AGREEMENT – Selection of Work Group Leaders (Construction) and Fitter Leaders, will be considered as qualified for upgrade.
- The senior, qualified, Fitter Operator within the workgroup will be upgraded to Work Group Leader classification and will have primary responsibility for running the crew.
- If no Fitter Operator within the crew meets the three-year experience requirement, the senior Fitter Operator will be upgraded.
- The T&S Workgroup will not result in the elimination of local distribution pipeline construction crews, or the elimination of Work Group Leader (Construction) classifications in those areas where Work Group Leader (Construction) classifications currently exist.
- In the event of a surplus situation in the T&S Workgroup, crewmembers will retain surplus rights at their Home Reporting Location (the shop from which they bid when they originally entered the T&S Workgroup).
- During periods when no Transmission and Storage projects are underway, the T&S Workgroup will be assigned work within the Greensburg reporting location.

Standardized Emergency Callout Process for Two Person Fitting Crews
To implement a standard Company-wide emergency overtime callout process for 2-man crews consisting of a Fitter Leader and a Fitter Operator.
This process will help to assure that Fitter Leaders have first opportunity to act as backup Fitter Operators, in the event that a classified Fitter Operator cannot be obtained for emergency callout overtime.
This process will also help to assure that Fitter Operators have first opportunity to act as backup Fitter Leaders, in the event that a classified Fitter Leader cannot be obtained for emergency callout overtime.
Effective July 1, 2007, each reporting location will create and maintain two (2) additional callout lists. These new lists will be as follows:
- Backup Fitter Leader List: A list consisting of Fitter Operators who are qualified to serve in a Fitter Leader capacity (to lead a crew) for emergency callout purposes.
- Backup Fitter Operator List: A list consisting of Fitter Leaders who are qualified to serve in a Fitter Operator capacity (2nd person on crew) for emergency callout purposes.
Example – Two Person Crew Needed for Emergency Overtime
Step 1 – Emergency Center Operator (ECO) begins making calls from the classified Fitter Leader callout list, starting with the name immediately following the name previously called.
Step 2 – In the event that the ECO runs the entire Fitter Leader list and is unable to obtain a classified Fitter Leader, the ECO will next begin making calls from the Backup Fitter Leader list in an attempt to secure a qualified person to lead the crew, starting with the name immediately following the name previously called.
Step 3 – If the ECO runs the entire Backup Fitter Leader list and is still unable to secure a Fitter Leader, then the Auxiliary List will be run in an attempt to obtain a qualified person to lead the crew.
(After obtaining a Fitter Leader to lead the crew, the ECO then will move on to obtaining a Fitter Operator to serve as 2nd member of the crew.)
Step 4 – ECO begins making calls from the classified Fitter Operator callout list, starting with the name immediately following the name previously called.
Step 5 – In the event that ECO runs the entire classified Fitter Operator list and is unable to obtain a Fitter Operator, the ECO will next run the Backup Fitter Operator list in an attempt to secure a qualified 2nd person for the crew, starting with the name immediately following the name previously called.
Step 6 – If the ECO runs the entire Backup Fitter Operator list and is still unable to secure a 2nd person for the crew, then the Auxiliary List will be run in an attempt to obtain a qualified 2nd person for the crew.
- All callout lists outlined in this agreement will be rotated on a continuous basis, with subsequent calls starting with the name immediately following the name previously called. The existing practice of a weekly rotation that is in effect at certain reporting locations will cease.
- Prior to the July 1 implementation date, local management will create the Backup Fitter Leader and Backup Fitter Operator lists, and these lists will be reviewed with the local union representative.
- Nothing in this Agreement changes the process outlined in Article XIV – Working Hours, Section 10, Paragraph 3.

Commercial Drivers License (CDL) Agreement for Fitter Group
Between Dominion Peoples And
UWUA Local 69-1
- All current employees as of the date of this Agreement will not be required to secure a Commercial Drivers License (CDL) in the event they bid and are selected for a future Fitter Operator, Fitter Leader or Work Group Leader (Construction) that is posted for bid with a CDL requirement.
- Existing Fitter Leaders and Fitter Operators will be offered the opportunity on an annual basis to voluntarily obtain a CDL as part of their current classification. Once the employee elects to obtain a CDL, they will be required to maintain the CDL for as long as they hold their Fitter Leader of Fitter Operator classification.
- All future Fitter Leader, Fitter Operator and Work Group Leader (Construction) positions will require a CDL, and will be posted for bid with such a stipulation. Successful bidders who do not possess a CDL at the time of their selection will have one hundred and eighty (180) days from their selection date to secure one.
- All employees hired on or after the date of this Agreement will be required to obtain (per paragraph #1, above) and maintain a CDL, should they be selected for a future Fitter Leader, Fitter Operator, Work Group Leader (Construction) or
Mechanic “A” position (revision 04/26/2010.) The Company reserves the contractual right to utilize Article 27 – Demotion, Suspension and discharge – to address employees who fail to timely secure or maintain a CDL as required by the Agreement.
- The Company will reimburse employees for the cost difference between a CDL and a standard driver’s license. The company will also provide, during normal working hours, a vehicle, training and the testing necessary to obtain a CDL.
- No existing Truck Drivers will be surplussed as a result of this Agreement. The Company reserves the contractual right to eliminate Truck Driver positions that become vacant through bidding, retirement, termination, etc., per Article XXIV.
- CDL driving duties will be limited to those employees who maintain a “CDL and hold the classifications of Fitter Operator, Fitter Leader, Work Group Leader (Construction) and Truck Driver. The existing practice of permitting Mechanics to operate CDL vehicles for duties related to the garage function will continue.
- Work assignments which primarily involve truck driving duties will be first assigned to a classified Truck Driver within the reporting location, provided there is an incumbent classified Truck Driver in the location where the assignment originated.
- For emergency callout overtime assignments, CDL qualified employees will only be required if a CDL is necessary to complete the work assignment, based on the equipment needs of the job.
- Upon achieving CDL qualification, and for as long as the CDL is maintained, all Fitter Operators, Fitter Leaders, Work Group Leaders (Construction), Truck Drivers and Mechanics, will receive a CDL Adjustment equal to $0.25 per hour. This adjustment will be considered part of base pay for the purpose of benefit calculations for the pension Plan, Savings Plan and Profit sharing Plan.

AGREEMENT – Non-qualified Fitter Leader Selection Process
The purpose of this email is to summarize and document in writing the discussions that took place between the Union and the Company on Tuesday, April 5, 2006, relative to the Agreement on page 77 of the contract regarding the Selection of Work Group Leaders (Construction) and Fitter Leaders.
Our discussion centered around concerns from both Union and Management about the language in the Agreement specifying that bidders for F/L and WGL positions must have a minimum of 3 years of Company fitting experience (2 years for employees hired before 8/1/85). Because of the demographics of our current workforce, the possibility exists that we will be unable to fill many future F/L and WGL postings because of this minimum three-year requirement.
After considerable discussion on the matter, the Company and the Union agreed to the following process:
The Agreement – Selection of Work Group Leaders (Construction) and Fitter Leaders will remain in the contract without modification, and will be followed when reviewing bids for job postings for these two classifications.
In the event there are no qualified bidders in the candidate pool, the following process will be followed:
The senior bidder (Company seniority) in the candidate pool will be selected for the position, with preference given to candidates within the bidding location according to the current bidding process.
The successful candidate will be placed in a Fitter Operator classification, as qualified, for an interim period of time.** (For example, if the selected bidder has one (1) year of fitting experience, he or she will become a Fitter Operator (After One Year).
The successful candidate will remain a Fitter Operator during this interim period until one of the following occurs:
- The employee accumulates a total of three (3) years of fitting experience (including experience accumulated prior to selection), at which time he/she will be reclassified to the Fitter Leader or Work Group Leader classification for which they originally bid.
- Local supervision determines that the employee has satisfactorily demonstrated the ability to assume the responsibilities of the Fitter Leader or Work Group Leader position for which they originally bid.
**Note regarding upgrades during the interim period that the employee is accumulating fitting experience:
Local management may choose to upgrade the employee to Fitter Leader or Work Group Leader during this period, depending on the specific needs of the assignment, but will be under no obligation to do so. Any such upgrade, however, will not be construed as proof that the employee is qualified to be permanently assigned to the Fitter Leader or Work Group Leader position for which they originally bid.

In House Fitter Agreement
The Company and Union agree to replace the Utilityperson classification and Utilityperson agreement with this “In House Fitter Agreement.” This agreement will broaden the Fitter classification by adding the work set forth in this agreement to the Fitter classification as exclusive bargaining unit work. This agreement will bring back “in house” work that is presently being completed using contractors.
The “Fitter” classification will start at paygrade 5. A “Fitter” will progress to paygrade 6 after 1 year , paygrade 7 after 2 years , paygrade 8 after 3 years , paygrade 9 after 4 years , Fitter Operator paygrade 10 after 5 years and Fitter Operator pay grade 11 after 6 years .
No later than the end of the 1st Quarter of 2011 (March 31, 2011), the following work will be performed exclusively by UWUA Local 666 employees (replacing the work currently performed by our line- locating contractors):
Locating all gas lines and facilities owned by Peoples Natural Gas;

Service Line Leak Surveys; Corrosion reads;
Anode installation; Installing “line markers”;

Fitter Operators within the location will be given the opportunity to operate first. Fitters will not be upgraded to Fitter Operator when asked to operate, but they will be paid the appropriate rate when performing other classified work.
Classified employees with permanent restrictions, performing work identified in this Agreement or other restricted work, will not be displaced by this Agreement.
The Company will create a new classification titled “Pipeline Inspector”. All incumbents who are inspecting will be re-classified to Pipeline Inspector. All future Pipeline Inspector vacancies will be posted for bid.
