Duke Energy and the IBEW

The collective bargaining contract between Duke Energy and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers expired in early December. Duke Energy has informed the union that the current contract will be terminated if there isn’t a new deal by February 3rd. The possibility of a strike raises concerns about the Crystal River nuclear plant, which is no longer operational. See articles in the Tampa Bay Times here and here.

The state chapter of the Sierra Club has expressed its concern in a letter to Duke Energy.
