Local steelworkers union to hold protest

METROPOLIS, IL (KFVS) -

A local union for steelworkers has planned a march and rally for Saturday, Oct. 10 at noon.

The United Steelworkers Local 7-669 and their supporters will protest in Superman's home town.

The members of the local union were locked out by Honeywell Inc. back in August.

According to the union, that was after Honeywell did not accept a contract that would eliminate a majority of the bargaining unit's positions and made drastic cuts to employee healthcare.

The protest will start at 519 E. 5th Street, in the Clark School parking lot.

The march will then move to Ft. Massac State Park.
