More on this petition:
American Water is waging an all-out attack on working families in this Country. Please take 2 minutes to sign our petition. This Company is demanding huge concessions in Health Care, while only offering minimal wage increases. This Company is demanding that Union workers be replaced by contractors, but it is doubtful that the consumer would see any reduction in the cost of their water. It's not about money - It's all about UNION BUSTING! American Water granted more than $12.5 million in total pay during 2010 to only seven top executives – including $3.5 million to former CEO Don Correll, who resigned in August 2010, and $1.4 million to new CEO Jeffry Sterba, who worked for the company less than five months last year. Jeff’s compensation for 2010 according to Forbes: Salary $246,634.00 Bonus $200,000.00 Restricted stock awards $308,618.00 All other compensation $12,955.00 Option awards $ $311,741.00 Non-equity incentive plan compensation $333,124.00 Change in pension value and nonqualified deferred compensation earnings $0.00 Total Compensation $1,413,072.00 Tell Jeff Sterba enough is enough. Stop your attacks on Union Workers! Keep qualified Union workers collecting the water, treating the water, and maintaining the water systems.
