Albany, NY – “We applaud Governor Cuomo for recognizing the vital role nuclear energy has in the state’s clean energy plan,” said Mario Cilento, President of the New York State AFL-CIO.

“We are encouraged the state is committed to working with all parties to come to an agreement that will continue the operation of the James A. Fitzpatrick Nuclear Power Plant in Oswego.

“This is an important issue for the entire Labor Movement.

“Our affiliates in the private sector, public sector and building trades recognize the critical role existing nuclear facilities have in our communities.

“Localities like Oswego also rely on nuclear power generation for jobs, revenue and the vital public services that funding stream enables them to provide,” Cilento said.
