u stated that the postal worker union is the largest union in the US with a 1/2 mil work force. The NEA & AFT has close to 6 mil educational workers in their unions (NEA 3 mil + & AFT 2 mil +). The NEA, with the largest democratic deliberative body in the world, is the largest single union in the US.

As far as I could find out the American Postal Workers Union has 330,000 members and there were many other unions larger than that with the NEA being the largest.

Nuclear Plant Has Been Leaking For Four Years

According to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Entergy Corp has allowed highly radioactive waste to leak into a contained area at the FitzPatrick nuclear power plant for the last four years.

The FitzPatrick plant is near Oswego, New York, but the NRC has said that the leak "poses no immediate risks to any residents or the environment."
