Kerry Statement on Pilgrim Power Plant

Statement

Date:
Location: Boston, MA

Senator John Kerry today released a statement on current contract negotiations at the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant in Plymouth.

"More important than any bargaining tactics, the top priority must be the safety of the plant, its workers, and people in the surrounding community. That means having the best trained personnel who know the plant inside and out at the helm," said Sen. Kerry. "I'm concerned by what I'm hearing about experienced workers being sent out the door when contract talks stall, and the impact that may be having on plant operations. It is in everyone's interests, including management, to get back to the negotiating table and keep talking in good faith, and in the meantime avoid any downgrade in the smooth operations of the Pilgrim facility. A fair resolution should be everyone's goal, and the process of getting there should in no way leave people in Plymouth, the South Shore, and Cape Cod wondering whether shortcuts or understaffing are shortchanging their expectations for the highest level of safety."
