Rally in the Valley

-A A +A
By Roger Snodgrass

Current and former workers at Los Alamos National Laboratory will synchronize with other energy employees and communities around the country Wednesday to demand additional reforms in the compensation program for Cold War workers who have suffered occupational illnesses.

Nationally, rallies will take place between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. in Cleveland, Ohio; Denver, Colo.; Las Vegas, Nev.; and Oak Ridge, Tenn. Locally, the rally will be held in Española outside the Energy Employee Compensation Resource Center offices at 412 Paseo de Oñate, Suite D.

Maureen Merritt, a physician advocate with the Mexico Alliance of Nuclear Worker Advocates, organized the local rally.

“The intention was good when the act was set up,” Merritt said in a phone call Monday. “However, we have found that the current administration of this program has been far from ideal. Too many claims have been denied or endlessly delayed.”
