Local 1-2 workers protested outside Consolidated Edison Chairman Kevin Burke's Upper East Side home Thursday, as talks continued between Con Ed workers and the utility on the lockout's 12th day.

Workers maintained pensions and fair pay are a sticking point.

"There's a lot of guys put a lot of time and effort in this company. It's a good company but we do want a fair contract and they're not being fair," said one protester.

"We're not out to take everybody's money, we just want our fair share for our labor," said another. "When you've got a guy making $11 million a year, I mean, we're not asking for too much."

The Local 1-2 filed a petition Wednesday asking the New York Public Service Commission to end the lockout.
