Statement from Entergy Nuclear in regards to the Pilgrim Station Contract
June 6, 2012
We have tremendous trust and confidence in our employees, and we remain committed to finalizing a new agreement that balances our responsibilities with the realities of today’s economy.
Our proposals seek to reflect this commitment, as we have proposed further wages increases each year atop an average income that is already more than $122,000. Also, the premium health plan proposed to employees was developed by the union – which we agreed to support.
We believe the further wage increases, comprehensive medical benefits, a company-matching 401(k) savings program and annual incentive awards that average $3,400 per employee all represent a substantial four-year commitment to our employees and their well-being. We believe this is an exceptional and very attractive opportunity, particularly in today’s economy and competitive demands.
We believe the proposals we have offered are unquestionably fair and reasonable.
