Rally at Beaver Court House to Support Keeping BVPS Running - Sept 20th

Tuesday, September 17, 2019
In efforts to kick-off the fall legislative efforts in Harrisburg, Nuclear Powers Pennsylvania and BVMatters are holding a rally for Beaver Valley Power Station in front of the Beaver County Courthouse This Friday, September 20th at 11am.  This is excellent opportunity for us, the employees of Beaver Valley, to demonstrate the importance of Beaver Valley to our communities and the state, in our own backyard!
 
In support of this effort, site leadership has called for all non-essential personnel (ie. those not supporting minimum shift manning or immediate plant needs, as determined by leadership), who wish to support, to be dismissed at 10am on Friday to attend the rally and show our support for our plant! The rally will last 30-45 minutes, and will include appearances by plant personnel, union leaders, community leaders, and state legislators.  It is expected that various media outlets will cover the event, and so your support is critical to demonstrating just how important we are!
 
We are expecting a large crowd in front of the courthouse, and yes that’s a good thing!  Parking in Beaver is available on side streets in every direction.  Employees are encouraged to car pool wherever possible, and to encourage their family and friends to attend as well!

Please help support the future of Beaver Valley by attending, ready to be loud and excited about our plant!
