Indian Point workers, Entergy reach tentative agreement to avoid strike

BUCHANAN, Westchester County (WABC) -- A tentative agreement has been reached with union workers at Indian Point.

The deal was reached at 2 a.m. Wednesday after talks with energy company Entergy were put on hold over the weekend.

The two sides worked for weeks to come up with a new collective bargaining agreement extending to 2020, one year after the nuclear power plant is expected to close.

The tentative agreement will now be voted on by union members.
