Millstone Update

Millstone Update

In early May the NLRB regional office in Boston ruled on what an appropriate unit was based on the 34 days of hearings last summer.  We, along with the International Office, disagreed with that decision so we requested a review of the decision by the NLRB in Washington.  The vote was still held this past Wednesday and Thursday.  At the close of the polls last night at 7:00 p.m. there was still no word from Washington so the ballot boxes were sealed and then taken back to the regional office in Hartford.

We want to recognize the workforce at Millstone for staying strong and united throughout this struggle.  It has been a long haul to this point and while Dominion has spent a boatload of money on their anti-Union campaign, it will not crush the spirit of those who want a collective voice in the workplace.  So for now we wait and see how the NLRB rules.
