B&W Y-12 released a short statement Saturday saying it was pleased with the contract extension approved by hourly union workers at the Y-12 National Security Complex on Friday.
The 14-month contract extension includes a 2.5 percent wage increase, and it was ratified by members of the Atomic Trades and Labor Council during voting at a union hall on Friday afternoon and evening. The ATLC represents 14 international unions.
“We look forward to continuing our productive relationship ensuring the missions of the National Nuclear Security Administration at Y-12,” B&W Y-12 said in the statement.
The extended contract goes into effect April 22, and it will last through June 20, 2014.
It applies to roughly 1,100 union members at Y-12. It could carry the workers through a transition from B&W Y-12, the current managing and operating contractor, to Consolidated Nuclear Security LLC. In January, CNS won a consolidated five-year contract to manage and operate Y-12 and the Pantex Plant near Amarillo, Texas, although that award has been challenged.
