BOSTON (AP) -- Utility workers, state officials and labor leaders will be rallying against the lockout of Entergy Corp.'s Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant workers at the Massachusetts State House.
State Treasurer Steven Grossman, Senate President Therese Murray, members of Utility Workers Union of America Local 369 and others are scheduled to rally outside the State House Thursday afternoon.
Last week union workers rejected a tentative contract with Entergy after union leaders had recommended the deal. Entergy said then it favored federal mediation.
The dispute became contentious with Entergy locking out union workers and the union filing complaints with the National Labor Relations Board.
Entergy has said about two-thirds of its regular workforce at Pilgrim is on the job and an alternate staffing plan remains in effect
