Honeywell Negotiations Update 11.15.17

Negotiations can best be described today as steady – but slow.

Economics continue to be the biggest obstacle. We’re getting closer. But not yet close enough.

As the clock on the current contract winds down, having your support from the shop floor is important now more than ever.

If we have to, we will negotiate this contract until the final hour. Rest assured.

But first, a few housekeeping items…

First, strike assignments were mailed out today as per IAM procedure. In the event of a strike, assignments will begin immediately Monday, November 20th at 12:01 am. Questions about strike procedure? Read the Negotiations Survival Handbook.

Second, don’t forget to wear BLUE or a union shirt tomorrow Thursday, November 16th. Show the company #WeAreOne!

REMINDER: A tentative contract ratification vote date is scheduled for Sunday, November 19th at 2:00 pm at Belton High School located at 801 West North Ave, Belton, MO 64012.

Honeywell Negotiations Update 11.14.17

Negotiations continue as the Committee continues fighting for a fair contract.

As this message is going out, your Committee is leaving for the night.

There was a lot of tough discussion on economics. Some progress has been made, but a number of important issues still remain on the table.

Rest assured that your Committee is working hard on your behalf. Our number one goal is to bargain a contract we can ultimately recommend.

There’s been a lot of questions about what would happen if the membership voted to institute a work stoppage. We highly encourage you to visit the IAM Local 778 website and read the Negotiations Survival Handbook. A lot of questions regarding a strike, negotiations, the ratification vote, etc. are answered there.

REMINDER: A tentative contract ratification vote date is scheduled for Sunday, November 19th at 2:00 pm at Belton High School located at 801 West North Ave, Belton, MO 64012.

Honeywell Negotiations Update 11.13.17

We’re back in the trenches this week as we resume talks and continue hammering out remaining economic and non-economic proposals in the contract.

We’ve got some issues resolved. But we need your support as we will be dealing with some tough subjects in these final days. Remember, #WeAreOne!

As the current contract quickly draws to a close, Honeywell’s final opportunity to show this Negotiating Committee – and most importantly, you, our members – how much it values its workforce is shrinking just as quickly.

Know that your Negotiating Committee remains committed to fighting for a fair and equitable contract – one that we can recommend to the membership.

REMINDER: Tentative contract ratification vote date is scheduled for Sunday, November 19th at 2:00 pm at Belton High School located at 801 West North Ave, Belton, MO 64012.
