Trade Unions Announce PLA Deal for Georgia Nuclear Project
America�s Building Trades Unions announced in May an agreement with Stone & Webster Construction, a subsidiary of The Shaw Group of Baton Rouge, La., to construct Units 3 and 4 at the Vogtle Electric Generating Plant in Waynesboro under the Nuclear Power Construction Labor Agreement.
Georgia Power (a Southern Company), Oglethorpe Power, MEAG Power and Dalton Utilities are adding Units 3 and 4 at Plant Vogtle. Shaw is providing engineering and construction services for the two proposed nuclear power units.
The units represent a $14 billion capital investment in Georgia and will create approximately 3,000 construction jobs.
The agreement includes the use of the Building Trades� skilled craft apprenticeship programs for the project�s workforce development needs. The Building and Construction Trades Dept. is an alliance of 13 national and international unions.
