Labor Law Violations

To settle allegations of labor law violations, Honeywell agreed to pay “a total of $17.6 million in severance and other benefits to the over 500 former employees of the Allied Signal, Inc. plant in Stratford, Connecticut…The charges involved [Honeywell predecessor] Allied Signal’s failure to honor the terms of its ‘Effects Bargaining Agreements’ (EBA) with the Local Unions. The case arose in 1997 when Allied Signal announced that it would not continue the terms of the EBA. On April 12, 2000 the [National Labor Relations Board] issued an Order directing Allied Signal to comply with the terms of the EBA and begin paying severance benefits. Honeywell appealed the Board’s Order to the Appeals Court, which on June 29, 2001, issued its Judgment enforcing the Order in full. Thereafter, representatives of Honeywell, UAW Locals 1010 and 376, and NLRB’s Hartford, CT office (Region 34), entered into compliance discussions”
