September 10, 2019

 

G4S Security Lockout Ends @ Xcel Monticello Nuclear Plant After a Show of Solidarity By Labor Unions, National Union of Nuclear Security Officers NUNSO, LEOSU-DC, IBT, IBEW. Nuclear Security Officers have been picketing this week outside Xcel Energy’s nuclear power plant in Monticello in an ongoing labor dispute that started on August 31, 2019 The 23 union employees work for G4S, a London-based company under contract with Xcel to provide security for the plant.

 

G4S locked the workers out after their contract expired and they rejected a proposed new contract. The union said the company wants to change the employees’ health plan, which it said would result in higher costs and less coverage for workers.

 

"You called down the thunder. Well, now you've got it!"

 

LEOSU-DC Organizing Director led the charge to help end the lockout after Josh Haider, president of United Security Professionals Local 2, sought our help and our expertise. Once on the ground Maritas then contacted several of the local unions in the area to help assist in the lockout by G4S. This included the IBEW Local 160 who refused to cross the picket line as well as the operating engineers and the Teamsters union. Within 24 hours of us implementing a strategy, and applying maximum pressure, G4S ended the lockout. 

 

"Our strategy obviously worked and these Monticello Nuclear get to keep their health insurance" noted Maritas
