KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Striking machinists at Honeywell will vote on a proposed contract on Sunday.
Steve Nickel, a representative of the machinists’ union, said late Thursday that union negotiators agreed to present the proposal from a mediator to its member. He said the company has agreed to accept the proposal if it is approved.
The Kansas City Star reports that neither Nickel nor Honeywell spokeswoman Linda Cook would describe terms of the proposal.
The 840 members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers in Kansas City have been on strike since Oct. 9.
The walkout started after union members rejected a company proposal that offered better pay and benefits to existing employees but created a lower pay scale for new workers.
