The Sierra Club determining whether it is economically feasible to continue operating a coal fired power plant? Isn't that like a starving lion deciding if its next meal is an endangered species?
Utility workers receive about 10% less than workers in comparable positions in comparable plants. The retirement is excellent but only costs as much as social security to the employer and a bit more to the worker. They can not retire at age 40 unless disabled and then it is with a maximum of 50% pay. As a result of not being union they can do a complete task with less workers than a union as they are not regulated to only machinist or boilermaking, carpentry, etc.
