At DCPP, what is a Chemical and Radiation Protection Technician?  Is this a RP, HP, RCT?  I saw the posting for this job position on the PG&E website and was hoping someone could provide more input.

The posting listed that this is an "IBEW represented classification currently subject to collective bargaining."  Can someone explain what that means in terms of being employed at DCPP?

RP=HP=RCT

This nuclear plant has RP's managed by the same person that manages Chem Techs.  So you would Be a RP Tech AND a Chem Tech, presumably.

You would be an IBEW Union Member

At Diablo you have to have ANSI quals as RP and Chemistry. Part of your year will be in Chemistry and part of it will be in RP.

Thanks for the information.

With regards to the following:

Is there any literature, or perhaps a point of contact, to help explain the interaction between the IBEW and DCPP?

Are Chemistry and RP two different departments?  What are the work hours/shift schedule like for a Chemical and Radiation Protection Technician at DCPP?

The IBEW is the Union representing workers in this job classification.  They negotiate wages, benefits, and other things outlined in the collective bargaining agreement between the IBEW and DCPP.

When I worked there in 2001, the technicians were BOTH RP techs and Chemistry techs, based on seniority you were given the opportunity to choose the shift that you worked and whether you worked in RP or Chemistry.  At that time they were working 8 hr shifts so there were 3 shufts per day 0700-1500, 1500-2300, 2300-0700.

Since the "choice" is based on seniority the chances of a newby on being on the backshift the majority of time is very high

If you aren't an ANSI qualified chemistry technician for Commercial Nuclear Power Plants, or an EX-Navy ELT; you have little chance of becoming a house tech there (along with RP experience, which it seems you have).  If you have a degree in chemistry and have RP experience, that might help as an alternate qualification.  A back door way is to become an RP supervisor or ALARA guy there if you really want to get in and you are highly qualified RP wise.
