Westinghouse risks still shadow Toshiba

Job concerns, payment obligations linger after former unit's bankruptcy

SOICHI INAI, Nikkei staff writer | Japan

Westinghouse said Sunday that it would temporarily lock 172 unionized employees out of a nuclear components plant in the U.S. state of New Hampshire. Management shut them out of the factory in a bid to gain the upper hand after labor rejected a contract offer.
