Report: WIPP workers may go on strike (November 2015)

Workers at the underground nuclear waste disposal facility near Carlsbad could go on strike this year.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports workers at WIPP are demanding a pay raise.

The union representing the workers says they’ve already extended contract negotiations five times. They now have until mid-December to work out a deal.

The union says going on strike is a last resort.

WIPP shut down last year after radioactive waste leaked in the underground storage facility. Crews are working to reopen the facility.
