Almost four months after the lockout began, the union representing workers at the Honeywell plant in South Bend will head back to the negotiating table.

Honeywell announced this week that negotiations will resume on the week of September 12, according to a press release obtained by 95.3 MNC’s reporting partners at ABC 57.

Over 300 workers remain locked out as a result of failed negotiations on a new contract between union workers and Honeywell. The last negotiation session took place in June.

Honeywell says it hasn’t requested bargaining during the lockout. It also notes that the union swatted away two tentative agreements before the contract expired in May.

The union responded, saying Honeywell is blaming them for the lack of bargaining sessions.
