Entergy and Utility Workers Union of America Local 1-2 Reach Agreement on Contract

Rye, N.Y. – Entergy and the Utility Workers Union of America Local 1-2 reached an agreement early Saturday morning on a contract for the union’s approximately 395 workers at the Indian Point Energy Center.

“The agreement reached today allows all our employees to focus on their continuing mission to safely provide affordable and reliable power to millions of New Yorkers every day,” said John Ventosa, site vice president and Entergy’s top official at Indian Point. “This agreement is one that benefits all parties – our workers, the union, and Entergy. I applaud the union’s negotiating team, led by James Slevin, for their determination throughout the negotiations.”

The agreement between Entergy and union leadership would have to be approved by the union membership in a vote that is expected to take place within the next few weeks.

Indian Point Energy Center, in Buchanan, N.Y., is home to two operating nuclear power plants, unit 2 and unit 3, which generate approximately 2000 megawatts of electricity for homes, businesses and public facilities in New York City and Westchester County.
