Contract deal reached with Seabrook nuclear plant owner, union

Seabrook Nuclear

The owner of the Seabrook Station nuclear power plant and the union representing 226 workers reached a contract agreement Sunday and avoided a lockout, according to the Associated Press.

The plant had threatened to lockout the workers at midnight Monday. Ted Jenis, president of Utility Workers Union of America Local 555, said members will vote on the agreement Thursday.

The agreement includes 2.25 percent raises each year for three years and the company agreed not to eliminate its five fire brigade leaders, Jenis said. Major points in the negotiations also included scheduling.

Jenis noted that the agreement gives the union and plant until the end of 2014 to decide on employee scheduling.
