Honeywell negotiations short on time


A major employer has one more day to reach a new contract deal, or face a possible work stoppage. The Honeywell Plant in Metropolis and United Steel Workers Local 7-669 have until midnight Friday to come up with an agreement. Businesses that depend on the workers are hoping they won't see a repeat of the 14 month lockout of 2010. After two weeks of negotiations, both sides have only agreed on two of the 23 negotiating points. If no agreement is reached, the union has the option to strike, which they say they have no plans to do at this time. They can also work without a contract, or the company could choose to lock them out. (Honeywell, Inc.; Updated: 10:52 am, Thursday)

Area school districts receiving big bill

Some local school districts are among districts statewide that have started getting bills to help offset insurance claims against the failed Kentucky School Boards Insurance Trust. The trust announced last year that it would disband due to financial woes, and school districts would have to pay off outstanding claims of about $60 million. The trust offered insurance for worker's compensation, property and liability claims. McCracken County Public Schools has received a bill for $122,032 for worker's comp. Paducah Independent Schools got a bill for $210,834. Neither knows how much it will need to pay for property and liability claims. (Updated: 10:48 am, Thursday)
