Some striking Honeywell workers are skeptical about new contract offer


United Auto Workers Local 9 members are expected to vote Saturday on a new contract proposal from Honeywell Aerospace. However, some members have already decided to reject it.

They say the new proposal improves health insurance, but falls short in other issues, according to the South Bend Tribune.

Those issues include overtime eligibility changes, removing paid absence allowance days, and freezing pension contributions.

The six-member bargaining committee for the union has also not recommended members to approve the proposal, according to the South Bend Tribune.

Even though unemployment insurance runs out at the end of the month for the striking employees, it appears there is still no end in sight to the strike. Some striking members have even taken jobs at other companies.
