    March 27, 2014 -- Bargaining Update: Contract Ratified

    Honeywell is pleased that the union membership has ratified a new three-year contact. We believe it is a fair and equitable agreement that satisfies all of the company’s bargaining objectives. This includes terms that provide the plant with flexibility needed to sustain its economic viability.

    Along with the new contract, the company and union have agreed on a plan on how union members will return to work over the next two months. This plan is needed, in part, to allow for retraining and re-certification required by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

    The plant is currently in a maintenance shutdown but will be returning to production on or about April 1. The plant will continue to be operated by trained and qualified salary and contingent workers until union members return to those positions.

    Honeywell’s Metropolis Works facility plays an important role in providing Americans with an important source of clean, safe and sustainable electric power and helping our country move toward energy independence.

    Metropolis Works is the only facility in the country that converts uranium ore into uranium hexafluoride (UF6). UF6 is an essential compound used to produce enriched uranium for use as fuel in nuclear power plants, which provide about 19 percent of America’s electricity. Metropolis Works is part of the Fluorine Products business within Honeywell Performance Materials and Technologies.

    The Metropolis facility is one of the region’s largest employers, providing more than 350 good jobs in the Metropolis area.
