Negotiations continued Thursday between NSTAR and the Utility Workers of America Local 369.
The lights are back on in the Back Bay, but Mayor Tom Menino is still unhappy with NStar.
A power outage affected parts of Boston’s Back Bay for a short time on Tuesday afternoon.
Following 18 months of federal and state review, Northeast Utilities closed Tuesday on its $5 billion purchase of NStar, creating the biggest utility in New England.
The Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities OK’d the purchase of NStar two days after approval by Connecticut regulators.
NStar says it’s not liable for losses from the Back Bay power outage, but some local attorneys say that may be wishful thinking.
Boston Mayor Tom Menino says NStar’s charitable foundation has donated $10,000 to help low and fixed income people who lost food during a power outage last week.
Back Bay businesses are up and running just in time for St Patrick’s Day and trying to make up for the business lost when the lights went out during the massive Back Bay blackout.
The outage is so the company can switch the customers from a temporary connection, to the company’s permanent underground network.
NStar says power has been restored to the last of the customers who lost electricity after a smoky electrical transformer fire in the Back Bay earlier this week.
