Braidwood Nuclear Officers Vote 54 to 8 YES to Ratify its First Contract with Our Union


Braidwood Illinois 8/12/21 - The Braidwood Nuclear Security Officers working for Exelon Nuclear in Braidwood Illinois have voted 54 to 8 in favor of ratifying its first nuclear contract with the National Union of Nuclear Security Officers NUNSO, a division of LEOSU affiliated with United Federation LEOS-PBA.


These Braidwood Nuclear security officers had made the switch from their previous International Union to join NUNSO a few months back followed by Ginna Nuclear who also decided to leave the same International Union to join NUNSO. Both the Braidwood Nuclear security officers & Gina Nuclear Security officers noted they sought their independence from their previous International union that for years has failed them.
