* In 2000, Commonwealth Edison parent company Unicom merged with PECO Energy to form Exelon, unifying the ownership and operation of Braidwood, Byron, Dresden, LaSalle, Limerick, Peach Bottom and Quad-Cities. Exelon also became part owner of Amergen, which during the same year acquired Oyster Creek from GPU Nuclear.

* "Because of various legal reasons, AmerGen (originally formed by PECo with BNFL, with the PECo share later taken over by Exelon) will continue to have a separate identity for a while, but the AmerGen and Exelon nuclear plants work under a single overall organization."

* In January 2009, Exelon fully absorbed Amergen, establishing Clinton, Oyster Creek and Three Mile Island-1 as Exelon reactors.

Oyster Creek union may be in for very hard time

There's an apparent impasse between union and management involving the 217 members of the IBEW amongst Oyster Creek's 450 workers. Contract negotiations began about a year ago, and the workers went out on strike on May 22. AmerGen has been able to use it's own nuclear staff from other sites to replace the striking workers. The company has even withdrawn the last and best offer.
