THE BRONX - Hundreds of Con Edison workers turned out for the company's shareholders meeting in Manhattan Monday to demand fair wages and benefits.

Union members are protesting over what they say is a huge disparity in pay among workers and shareholders, and are threatening to go on strike if demands aren't met when their contracts expire next month.

A strike could affect 3.3 million customers who receive their electricity from the company.
