Entergy Replaces Union Workers At Nuclear Plant After Talks Fail

PORT GIBSON, Miss. (October 2, 2012)--Entergy Nuclear has locked out union security workers at its nuclear plant near Port Gibson, Miss., after contract negotiations with the United Government Security Officers of America Local 36 failed and the current contract with plant security officers expired at midnight Sunday.

Mike Balduzzi, Entergy Nuclear's senior vice president of nuclear technical services, said in a statement that because the union workers could leave their posts and strike at any time, the company decided to replace them.

Balduzzi said experienced individuals at Grand Gulf and from other Entergy nuclear plants and professional security firms will be filling those positions.

Union officials could not be immediately reached for comment.
