The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) has been clamoring for a vote at Progress Energy’s Shearon Harris Nuclear plant outside of Raleigh for months, if not years.
Well, guess what, the employees voted and the union got beat. Bad.
According to the News & Observer, the vote was 499-157 against unionizing.
It’s quite promising to see that despite all the union’s grandstanding and rhetoric that the workers here in North Carolina clearly see that unionization is a bad deal for them and the company they are employed by.
