If that plant plans to reopen the company should re-evaluate its entire management team from top down and clean house. Too many accidents and incidents being swept under the carpet for the sake of a dollar. The community is in danger from the company's incompitent management. I am sure some of the hard core union guys did not help the situation, but there are many union guys who just want to work and work safely without the threat of losing their jobs.

They'll find another plant to infect and bring to it's knees, forcing it into bankruptcy, then on to the next.. Etc. Etc.

I Thinkmthe company has already re evaluated. And management was not their conclusion.

Well if they did the evaluation was done with blinders on. How can management blame the union for the leak of hazardous gases when the union was not there working at the time of the leak. Something is not right with that picture. The only ones who will pay dearly will be the surrounding communities.

The company DID just re-evaluate the work force. That is why all the bad apples are not working and probably will NEVER work there again. Smart move by the company.

The workforce is fine; if you don't already know they are about to terminate most of their foremen and engineers too. Middle management and the union boys are 10 times more professional than the stupid upper management and corporate. If they would eliminate some of those jerk offs, MTW would be fine.

Hard working foremen and Management? I never say a manager there that did anything constructive; just pushing papers around their desks and trying to justify their continued existence. And as for foremen, there were very damn few that even knew enough to come in out of the rain, and those men are so long gone from that hellhole, it's not even funny.

Never saw a union guy that didn't think he was smarter than his boss either. Not after flunking out of high school. Not after a lifetime of setbacks. The same guys that are not bright enough to follow a procedure written on a third grade level, criticize the guys that designed the plant. I've seen it all my life. God, it gets old!

YOu should be concerned with the NRC findings. Does anyone understand he costs of bringing this facility to Standards for withstanding a New Madrid 8+ earthquake? Can you say $100 million?

The reasonable concern is after the company reviews these costs and the libilities will they stay in Metropolis or move? I think this is all in concert with closing USEC in 2013 removing both these high libilities from New Madrid fault area.

My concern it will not reopen.....ever!
They just built and started a "state of the art" centrifuge in New Mexico and are opening uranium mining operations within hundred miles.....any clue?
