Plymouth: Last-minute talks to begin after union rejects Pilgrim contract

Union workers at the Pilgrim nuclear plant have rejected the latest contract proposal from plant owner Entergy.

The move sets the stage for last-minute talks, Dan Hurley, president of the Utility Workers Union of America Local 369 told WATD.

He said Entergy was demanding concessions on health care, salary and staffing.

The union represents about 90 percent of the plant’s work force.

The current contract expires at midnight Tuesday, and negotiations are set to resume Monday morning.

Entergy says it will continue to negotiate with the union to reach a “fair” agreement.
