Democracy Now! 26 Apr 2011 Democracy Now! interviews labor journalist Mike Elk about the dozens of workers who protested at Honeywell's shareholder meeting on Monday, accusing the company of putting employees and the public in danger at its Uranium Enrichment Plant in Metropolis, Illinois. Major U.S. defense contractor, Honeywell, pleaded guilty last month to illegally storing hazardous radioactive waste without a permit. The company kept highly radioactive mud in drums in the open air behind its facility near the Ohio River. Workers at the facility say they notified Honeywell of the problem on many occasions. Many are members of the United Steelworkers union and feel this particular incident led to the company's desire bust their union. More than 200 workers at the Metropolis plant have been out of work since last June due to stalled contract negotiations with the company on workplace safety, economic and seniority issue. Mike Elk has covered this story extensively for In These Times magazine.
