The union that represents more than 400 workers at the Pilgrim nuclear plant in Plymouth has scheduled a vote this week on whether to authorize leadership to call a strike.
Utility Workers Union of America (UWUA) says contract negotiations with
the Entergy-owned plant have stalled over health care costs and working
heard clearly from my members that they would rather strike than accept
Entergy’s ongoing efforts to cost shift medical coverage and change
their working conditions," UWUA President Daniel Hurley said. "This vote
is absolutely critical to the safety of our communities and the
well-being of our members."
