The Utility Workers Union of America Local 369 has reached a tentative agreement with Louisiana-based Entergy Corp. on a contract for 62 tech workers at the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant.

The existing contract for the workers, who are responsible for duties that range from maintaining plant safety to managing information technology systems, expired last night.

The vote on the tentative agreement will take place on November 1, and the contract has been extended until November 14, 2012.

Last summer, union workers were locked out of the nuclear power plant for over a month and had their healthcare coverage revoked before an agreement was finally reached in early July.

About David Skill

Dave Skill’s radio career began in the fall of 1964 when he arrived on the campus of Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA. Dave barely got his bags unpacked when he paid a visit to WCHC, the campus radio station. And, before he knew it, he was spending so much time as a disc jockey and news writer/reporter, it seemed like he was majoring in “radio” and minoring in academics at “The Cross”. As you might imagine, his grades reflected it! During his junior and senior years, he also worked weekends in news and as a disc jockey at WNEB, the CBS radio affiliate in Worcester at the time.
