COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Two South Carolina power customers are suing the board of state-owned utility Santee Cooper, accusing it of unconstitutionally raising rates to pay for a failed nuclear power plant project. The utility and South Carolina Electric & Gas Co. decided last month to bail on the expansion of V.C. Summer Nuclear Station after jointly spending nearly $10 billion. The abrupt end left thousands jobless and brought a backlash from lawmakers and customers, who have spent about $2 billion on the project through rate hikes. The lawsuit is seeking class-action status.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — As negotiations start this month over wage increases at Walt Disney World, rebellion is brewing in one of the six unions that advocate for the resort's 70,000 workers. Many of the performers who entertain guests as Mickey Mouse, the Seven Dwarves and other costumed characters are Teamsters. Some of them are fed up with how their union is being run, and they're putting together a slate of opposition candidates. About half the members of Teamsters Local 385 are Disney workers. The rest include UPS drivers, hotel employees, food service workers, rental car employees and other drivers.
