Nuclear Power Workers Afraid to Raise Safety Concerns

Article in the New York Times -- NRC: Nuclear Workers Fear Retribution, by the Associated Press:

Some workers at a nuclear power plant complex just north of New York City are reluctant to raise safety concerns because they fear retribution, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission said Thursday.

During an inspection of the Indian Point complex in September, ''We found out that there were workers who perceived that they would be treated negatively by management for raising issues and consequently some of the workers expressed reluctance to raise issues under certain circumstances,'' said NRC spokesman Neil Sheehan.
