Labor violation charge dismissed

Posted: Updated:
METROPOLIS, IL -

Early in November, members of the United Steelworkers Local 7-669 union at Honeywell Metropolis filed a charge with the National Labor Relations Board claiming the company illegally locked out the union.

The federal agency released a ruling on Tuesday, dismissing the charge because they could not find any evidence of violations.

Honeywell spokesperson Peter Dalpe sent us this statement, “The National Labor Relations Board has dismissed the Unfair Labor Practice charge filed last month by the United Steelworkers over the work stoppage at Honeywell's Metropolis plant. The NLRB investigated the complaint, which included a range of union claims, and found no evidence to support any of the union's claims. Honeywell, which has bargained in good faith and complied with all laws and regulations when it comes to bargaining, is pleased with the NLRB decision and remains committed to reaching a negotiated settlement with the union.”

We also reached out to the union for a response. We have not yet received one.
