Honeywell Workers Reject New Contract

Honeywell workers represented by the United Auto Workers Local 9 have voted not to accept the company’s latest contract proposal. A lockout began in May after the union rejected the original contract. The new proposal contained some health care changes: guaranteed weekly premiums for health and dental insurance would not go up more than 15% per year and Honeywell would contribute more to employee health care savings accounts to offset increased costs. The UAW member continue to be concerned about other parts of the proposal: changes in overtime eligibility, removal of paid absence allowance days, and freezing of contributions to long-standing “legacy” pension plans.
