Entergy (NYSE: ETR) said July 2 that it and Utility Workers Union of America Local 369 leaders have agreed to resume labor contract negotiations for the Pilgrim nuclear plant July 6 under the guidance of a federal mediator.
“Until agreement on a new bargaining unit contract is reached between both parties, the company’s alternate staffing/contingency plan remains in effect,” Entergy said in a statement. This includes mostly salaried workers. Local 369 leaders have said that Entergy is continuing a “lockout” at the nuclear plant in Massachusetts.
On June 20, UWUA Local 369 members voted down an Entergy contract offer for the second time in a month.
