Workers at the Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant say they're ready to go on strike if bargaining talks break down.

Officials from the Utility Workers Union of America say they've authorized a strike against the plant's owner, Entergy.

The workers' collective bargaining agreement expires on January 17.

However, talks are still in progress, so there's a good chance both parties can reach an agreement without a strike.

An Entergy spokesman said that they respect the vote that was taken and they're working hard to reach an agreement that will satisfy everyone.

According to Entergy, Indian Point generates about 25 percent of the power used in New York City and Westchester County.
