Plymouth: Pilgrim Plant union workers to vote on strike

Union workers at Plymouth’s Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant say they have set a vote for this Friday on whether to authorize a strike at the plant.

According to a press release from the Utility Workers Union of America Local 369, negotiations have stalled with parent company Entergy over healthcare cost shifts and changes in working condition.

Entergy spokesperson Carol Wightman says they are still negotiating with the union, which she says is the plant’s production, maintenance, office and technical union.

“Contract negotiations between Entergy and Local 369 union are ongoing,” said Wightman. “We are continuing to negotiate in good faith, and we are working toward coming to a fair and equitable agreement between Entergy and the union.”

The contract between the UWUA and Entergy expires on May 15th.
