Honeywell, union: No progress in negotiations

Staff report

Both sides agree that little progress was made during the third day of renewed contract negotiations between Honeywell and the United Steelworkers Local 7-669.

Honeywell on Wednesday morning offered counter proposals on issues that included vacation policies and grievance procedures.

The union representatives then spent the remaining time in private meetings, Honeywell spokesman Peter Dalpe said in an emailed statement.

"During this week's talks, the company repeated its position that any new contract must not only be fair to employees, but also allow the plant to continue to control costs and have operational flexibility to compete effectively in (the) difficult global market for the plant's only product," Dalpe wrote, adding that the plant has lost $300 million in the past decade.

Union spokesman John Smith said that Honeywell negotiators made "a few very minor moves" Wednesday, some of which they had previously made.

By contrast, he said, "the union has made significant moves this week ... that were met with resistance and lack of response."

Honeywell locked out union workers this month when the sides failed to reach an agreement by Aug. 1.

Negotiations began again this week.
