Statement on UAW meeting with Honeywell; union files NLRB action
Today, the UAW met with Honeywell to resume bargaining. The union came prepared to bargain and made proposals addressing the concerns UAW local memberships have with Honeywell’s final offer. The company brought no new proposals to settle the lockout.
Further, after a two-month delay in allowing the union access to its South Bend, Indiana, facility, Honeywell frustrated the union’s efforts by not living up to its legal obligation to allow a comprehensive health and safety review -- a review that is vital to our ongoing collective bargaining. Today, the UAW filed an action with the National Labor Relations Board to make Honeywell follow the law and allow our experts to conduct a full health and safety review.
The UAW continues to demand that Honeywell end the lockout, return our members to work, and bargain in good faith to reach a comprehensive agreement.
Senator Joe Donnelly has sent a letter to the corporation demanding that Honeywell come to the table and bargain in Good Faith.
Where is Representative Walorski in all this she has remained quiet maybe because she has taken at least $10,000 dollars from Honeywell for her re-election campaign.
Candidate Coleman has been on the picket line with the LOCKED OUT WORKERS, while Honeywell was just rewarded a new government contract.
I just heard the story of a workers wife while on her cancer treatment was thrown off their Insurance coverage.
Isn't this a death sentence to this family? Representative Walorski's new campaign commercial shows how she intervened for a veteran, but where is she in helping over 300 families living in her district? Nowhere to be found remember to VOTE
