Labor and Vermont Yankee
Submitted by Rep. Sarah Edwards on Tue, 2010-01-12
"Highlighted this week in the press was the issue of jobs, labor unions and Vermont Yankee. Thirty-eight years ago a decision was made in the Vermont Legislature to allow a boiling water nuclear reactor to be constructed in Vernon, VT. When the vote was taken, success for the decision was by a margin of one vote. The slim agreement was made with the provisions that the high level nuclear waste would be removed from the site and that the plant would close on March 23, 2012."
"While we do not want to hear of any Vermont jobs lost, Entergy (or perhaps Enexus) and unions should be planning now to help those workers get what they need when the aging, leaky nuclear power plant is closed. ENVY should set up a blind trust fund now to help its employees transition. Also, the state should be seeking a project labor agreement. While the state cant insist that the jobs be union, they can specify an agreement that assumes certain standards. Given the uncertain nature of continued operation, it would be wise for unions to be working to guarantee quality standards for jobs going forward past 2012 and beyond."

You are doing it wrong, short for nuclear should be nuc, not nuke.
And so whats the issue here, what do you want to talk about? This article is over a year old. If it is relevant to the topic you started 7 hours ago, why not just add it on to that one?
