On Feb. 8, a powerful delegation of 25 IBEW 1245 members from the Diablo Canyon Power Plant, along with two members of 1245’s Executive Board, attended the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) public hearing for the relicensing of DCPP. The hearing took place in San Luis Obispo, with approximately 75-100 members of the public in attendance.
The public comment period lasted nearly three hours, as there were many commenters who testified both for and against the relicensing of DCPP, but our group’s presence was apparent in the room. Four of our members issued public comments in support of relicensing. Local 639 also showed up in support and made several comments in support of relicensing.
