IBEW 1245 member Anthony Macera — a Nuclear Operator at DCPP — was involved in a head-on collision on his way to work on January 9th, during the atmospheric storm event. He was just hired six days prior to the accident, and unfortunately, because he is a new employee, he does not meet the eligibility requirements for FMLA.
