Honeywell talks with union proceed

Staff report

After a two-week break, union officials and Honeywell leaders met Monday to proceed with negotiations.

Honeywell and United Steelworkers Local 7-669 began contract negotiations July 21 in anticipation of the union's three-year contract expiring Aug. 1.

Talks failed to result in an agreement by Aug. 2, and negotiations were put on hold until Monday.

Information from Honeywell spokesman Peter Dalpe states the company and union leaders talked about subcontracting and health care Monday.

"The company again presented additional details on the company's consumer-driven health care offering, which the union had agreed to adopt starting in 2015 under the terms of the previous contract," he said in the statement.

However, a statement from Union 7-669 spokesman John Paul Smith said "the company has been unwilling to compromise" on the issues of subcontracting and health care.

On Aug. 1, the union declined to vote on a proposal Honeywell management had offered that day. The union proposed a counter-offer, which Honeywell declined.

The company locked out union workers after failure to reach an agreement when the union's contract expired Aug. 1.

Negotiations took place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday. Honeywell and union leaders are expected to resume negotiations at 10 a.m. today.
