PSC Dismisses Union Complaint

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - The Wyoming Public Service Commission has dismissed a complaint from a union that claimed Rocky Mountain Power had retaliated against it for intervening in the power company's request for a rate hike. Reports state that the three-member commission on Thursday dismissed a complaint filed by the Utility Workers Union of America against Rocky Mountain Power.

The union had asked the commission to impose at least $10 million in sanctions against the power company. The union claims Rocky Mountain Power fired union president Harold Giberson after he testified against the company's request for a rate increase earlier this year. The commission says the union's complaint against the company belongs in the courts.
