As expected, the company decided again today not to negotiate in good faith with our committee. Half of the day was spent talking about the vacation that we earned in '09 that they owe us. After half a day of talking, the company decided they will pay us what the owe(they would have to anyway), and then put on their web site that they are doing us a favor by paying. We offered them some options on their so called "seniority issues" and they let us know that they weren't interested and again wanted to know if we were ready to fold. We don't look for there position to change for a while.
With cold weather fast approaching, we have temporary buildings with heat headed to the picket line. Honeywell should know that through our struggles together we only get stronger, and will last one day longer than them. The buildings were donated by Rick's Auto Sales and Frank Farmer Chevrolet, so if you have a chance, stop by and give them a big thank you.
