PLYMOUTH, Mass.—The union representing workers at the Pilgrim nuclear plant in Plymouth has filed five charges of federal labor law violations against the facility's ownership.

In a complaint filed with the National Labor Relations Board, the union said Entergy managers made a series of "coercive, threatening statements" before a June 2 vote on a proposed contract, which union members rejected 174-34.

Nearly 250 workers at the plant have been off the job since last Tuesday, in what the union terms a lockout.

The union also alleges that Entergy workers were making recordings of union members on the picket line, in violation of a state law requiring both parties to consent to recordings.

An Entergy spokeswoman tells the Patriot Ledger ( http://bit.ly/KZHema) the company would respond to the charges in a filing with the NLRB.
