BUCHANAN, N.Y. – Entergy and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 456 have agreed on a new contract for the union’s approximately 186 security workers at the Indian Point Energy Center in Buchanan.

“We are pleased to have reached an agreement with the Teamsters that is beneficial for our workers, the union, and Entergy,” said John Ventosa, chief operating officer for Entergy Nuclear. “Our security officers play an important role in ensuring safe and secure operations at Indian Point, so that we can continue to provide clean, reliable, essential electricity to millions of New Yorkers.”

The five-year agreement was approved by union membership on Oct. 27, and went into effect retroactively to cover the period from Oct. 2, 2014, to Oct. 2, 2019.

“This is a win-win for our members and for Entergy,” said Al Liberatore, business agent with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 456. “The new agreement provides our members with job security and assured compensation for their important role in ensuring Indian Point’s continued secure and safe operation.” Indian Point Energy Center, in Buchanan is home to two operating nuclear power plants, Unit 2 and Unit 3, which generate approximately 2000 megawatts of electricity for homes, business and public facilities in New York City and Westchester County.
