All of these people have a least one thing in common besides working here at the Atomic Plant: Gat refuses to accept any responsibility for the plight for each and everyone. Is it any wonder employees are becoming frightened and discouraged and quitting the plant? We think not!
We beg of you to use any enforcement of the state of Ohio Department of Health to have a complete investigation of the Portsmouth Area Atomic Plant. We earnestly urge your Department to look into the radioactivity and the protective measures against chemicals such as fluorine, chlorine, uranium hexafluoride and many others which we handle every day.
This request comes as a last resort to get something done down here!
For more than two years we have struggled through grievances, arbitration, conferences and even a plant-wide "wildcat" strike to get the management to change their policy of no concern for the people working in these conditions but to no avail. We will be deeply indebted to you if can help.
