Plymouth Nuclear Plant Vows Contract Talks Will Continue

PLYMOUTH (AP) — A spokesman says Louisiana-based Entergy will continue to negotiate for a contract with its union-represented employees at the Pilgrim nuclear power plant in Plymouth despite their rejection of a proposed contract.

Spokesman Rob Williams said Sunday that the company is seeking a “fair and equitable” agreement for the company and union members.

Dan Hurley of Utility Workers Union of America Local 369 said in a statement Saturday that Entergy was demanding concessions on health care, salary and staffing.

The union, which represents about 90 percent of the plant’s work force, did not release details on the contract vote tally.

The current contract expires at midnight Tuesday.
