The tentative agreement has been ratified and NRC has been notified. NRC is now going through their approval process. We expect that the new agreement will be signed within several weeks.
Performance Bonus: While the Performance Bonus Program was in effect, the RCEA challenged NRC’s refusal to publish the names of bonus recipients.
