Two locked out Honeywell Metropolis Illinois USW 7-669 workers will be speaking at LaborTech 2010 which will be held in San Francisco. Their plant which processes nuclear material has been kept operating by Honeywell by illegally manipulating the tests required for operators although this is a criminal conspiracy to violate Federal OSHA laws. As a result there have already been toxic releases from this scab plant. Obama is a friends of the Honeywell CEO David Cote.


Special Guests Honeywell Metropolis, Illinois locked out USW 7-669 members Stephen Lech and James Childers At LaborTech Saturday Night Event

Today in Metropolis, Illinois 230 USW 7- 669 Honeywell nuclear processing workers have been locked out of their jobs at this plant since June 28. Stephen Lech and James Childers are activists and leaders of this fight and will speak about the fight for health and safety, their issues and how working people and the public can defend their fight for justice. The US government and health and safety oversight agencies so far have allowed the Honeywell CEO David Cote to manipulate health and safety laws to allow untrained scabs to run the highly dangerous plant.
Already there have been accidents and releases of toxins in the environment.
