KNSI) – Workers with the United Security Professionals Local 2 Union say G4S security solutions company told them they have reached an impasse in contract negotiations with the union and have no interest in coming back to the bargaining table. The main sticking point is a change to their health benefits package. The union says they want to work out an agreement, but according to workers there, G4S is refusing to come back to the table.
The security contractor at Xcel Energy’s Monticello nuclear power plant appears set to lock out some guards after a breakdown in contract negotiations.
The lockout would affect “lieutenants “ or “shift leaders,” whose contract expires at midnight Saturday, said Josh Haider, head of United Security Professionals Local 2. There are about 25 unionized lieutenants at the Monticello plant employed by G4S, a large global security firm.
G4S and Xcel have been training replacements for union guards over the past month, Haider said.
