Defiance Area UAW CAP Council Lends A Helping Hand

Members of the Defiance Area UAW CAP Council delivered four truck loads of food, toiletries, and school supplies to UAW Local 9 in South Bend, Indiana.  Honeywell locked out 317 Local 9 members from their jobs on May 9, 2016.  The Indiana Department of Workforce Development did not rule on their eligibility for unemployment benefits for over two months.  The UAW International Union responded to this situation by issuing Local 9 members strike pay and a continuation of their health insurance until they start receiving unemployment payments.
