Honeywell employees protest, demand fair contract
GREEN ISLAND, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Local employees of a manufacturing company protested Wednesday in demand of a fair contract.
The Honeywell workers, based in Green Island, say the company refuses to come to an agreement with their union.
When local UAW members want to know what’s happening in their local and what the issues are that bring them together – like who the best candidate for workers is in the upcoming election – there’s no one they trust more than their union local. The UAW members who make that communication happen work tirelessly, usually on their own time, to bring it to their union sisters and brothers. Using all the platforms available to them such as social media, photography, video, publications, websites, email, texting and more, the UAW-Local Union Communications Association (LUCA) on Aug. 25 honored those hardworking communicators for a job well done over the past year.

A Statement from UAW Region 2B Director Ken Lortz regarding comments from Mike Pence
“If Mike Pence had his way America would have 2.6 million less jobs and $284.9 billion in lost income for just 2009 and 2010 alone. Every day in communities across Ohio and Indiana the auto rescue pays dividends through family paychecks. It’s astonishing he would double down on his opposition to a bill that saved the American middle class.”

Innovation Ohio has just released a new report on the success of the auto rescue. Its findings demonstrate that while it was characterized as a “lousy deal for Ohio” by Rob Portman at the time of its implementation, the auto bailout has in fact been a resounding success.
