Movie ID: Disaster film, sabotage at a nuclear plant? (not The China Syndrome)

I vaguely recall seeing part of a movie 20+ years ago on TV. Recollection is hazy, but it takes place at a nuclear or chemical plant that is in danger of an imminent (or ongoing) disaster.
- The disaster was deliberately caused by a single worker
- I think it takes place at a nuclear power plant because of radiation/contamination
- At some point the employees discover that someone (saboteur) has hidden themselves in the contaminated area. May have been dying(?)
- Vaguely recall a lunch pail figuring into the plot, possibly used to smuggle something in, but could be conflating with another movie.
- Probably from the 70's or 80's
I'd always thought this was The China Syndrome, but I just watched that and it definitely wasn't it. I've also scanned Wiki's Disaster Film list and didn't see anything from that era. Could have been made for TV.
