Nuclear Management Company Faces Violations

The National Labor Relations Board is accusing the operator of the Prairie Island Nuclear Power Plant of violating Federal Labor laws.

The Board says Nuclear Management Company of Hudson, failed to negotiate in good faith with its workers. Nuclear Management is accused of improperly withholding wage increases for workers who voted in favor of union representation.

A company spokeswoman says Nuclear Management has done nothing wrong, and that U.S. Labor law obligates employers to maintain existing wages and benefits until a contract is negotiated.
