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
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.
