Consolidated Edison (ED -0.4%) was today due to resume talks with its largest union in an attempt to end a dispute over a new labor contract that has seen 8,500 workers locked out. ConEd says it "bowed to public pressure" and reinstated health insurance for the workers. Meanwhile, ConEd and other utilities say they should be able to cope with yet another heat wave in the Northeast and Midwest.
