Union, Management Reach Agreement For Nine Mile Plants
State Senator Patty Ritchie and Assemblyman Will Barclay praised the members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) and Constellation Energy for reaching an agreement that ended a strike at both Nine Mile nuclear energy plants.
The union approved the new contract Tuesday in a 395 to 64 vote.
Senator Ritchie and Assemblyman Barclay met with both the union and management last week to ask both sides to return to the table to resume negotiations.
“The announcement that the strike has ended is welcome news to the families of both the union and management as well as the Greater Oswego community,” Senator Ritchie (R,C-Heuvelton) said. “The Nine Mile plants have enjoyed strong community support for decades, largely because of the outstanding relationship the workers have had with the company. Everyone is breathing a sigh of relief today at this terrific news.”
Ask Union Representatives, Constellation To Return To Bargaining Table
State Senator Patty Ritchie and Assemblyman Will Barclay met with representatives of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and Constellation Energy Group to urge both sides to return to the negotiating table to end the nuclear plant strike that has idled several hundred Oswego County residents.
"Oswego has a long and proud history of active community support for the nuclear industry," said Senator Ritchie. "A key reason is the outstanding relationship between the workers and management."
Assemblyman Will Barclay (R,C,I,-Pulaski), Ken Blankenbush (R,C,-Black River), Bob Oaks (R,C,-Macedon) and State Senator Patty Ritchie (R,C, - Heuvelton) urged Constellation and its Union leadership to return to the negotiating table.
“I think we all would like to see resolution to the situation so that people get back to work. The only way this can happen is by bringing the parties back to the bargaining table and work on a compromise,” said Assemblyman Barclay. “I have expressed this both to Constellation and to Union Leadership during talks this week. It is my hope that this meeting will take place soon.”
