ATLC workers ratify new Y-12 labor deal

Union workers at Y-12 ratified a new five year-contract on Thursday that includes 3 percent annual wage increases—the first of which goes in to effect on Monday December7th–and a $2,500 signing bonus. The new contract expires on June 22, 2020.
Negotiation teams from the Atomic Trades and Labor Council and Consolidated Nuclear Security LLC, which operates Y-12 for the National Nuclear Security Administration, had reached a tentative agreement on Monday on the new five-year labor agreement. The current agreement is scheduled to expire December 8, and the new agreement will go into effect then.
The ATLC is the bargaining unit for 13 local unions representing approximately 1,100 employees at Y-12. More than 900 workers voted on the contract recommended to them by union leaders on Thursday, but officials did not release information on how the vote broke down.
There are some changes to health insurance, but the costs will remain basically the same, according to officials. Employees will continue to pay 20 percent of their premiums for the first four years of the deal, which is the same as the current contract, but it goes to 21 percent in the last year of the contract. Employees will pay a little more in out-of-pocket expenses.
