RICHLAND -- More than 1,000 union workers at the nation's most contaminated nuclear site have rejected contract offers from five cleanup companies there.
The Hanford Atomic Metal Trades Council and contractors at south-central Washington's Hanford Nuclear Reservation have been negotiating for 18 months.
The union agreed to put the offers to a vote and to remain neutral as workers considered the proposed collective bargaining agreement, covering issues including pay, health care benefits and retirement.
The Tri-City Herald reports that workers decisively rejected the offers Tuesday night.
