Millstone Vote- Union Lost By 39 Votes

I want to thank everyone that helped out on this campaign; it’s been a long road. We had 36 days of hearings at the NLRB, many meetings, and several days standing out in the cold leafleting at the plant.  Dominion spent a tremendous amount of money to keep us out and in the end, even after the Board included many job titles that we felt were not appropriate for the production unit we sought, we fell short by only 39 votes.  If 20 no’s had been yes’s, it would have been the other way around- that’s close.  We’ll be meeting with our folks at Millstone in the next few weeks to see where we stand.

In Solidarity,

John Fernandes
