Forum Post: In Leaked Docs, Honeywell Cites Obama Ties As Key to Anti-Union Strategy

In These Times has exclusively obtained a leaked internal Honeywell document outlining an anti-union strategy that includes leveraging Obama administration connections. The documents suggest that the megacorporation is deeply concerned about recent union activity at its factories and the bad press that has resulted (one example cited is a Working In These Times op-ed).

The PowerPoint presentation, downloadable here, was leaked to In These Times by unionized Honeywell workers who downloaded them from company’s internal database. Titled “DRAFT Honeywell Readiness Plan for Corporate Union Campaigns” and marked "Honeywell - Confidential," the slideshow was authored by four Honeywell interns (see correction at bottom). Though the document is undated, it appears to be relatively recent, relying on 2011 data. Its stated objective is “to develop a framework that can be used by Honeywell with the resources required to prevent or react to a nationwide corporate union campaign and dissipate any problems as quickly as possible.”

To think of all the unions that give money to Obama and the Democrats... It suffices to say they aren't getting a positive return at all. Sad, how they still put their faith in the Democrats.

Good to know.

Another aspect of the 'Corporate War Of Aggression'.

Of course these corpoRATions have war plans/strategies. Anyone who does not think so - lives a very sheltered life.

We need to get in the street and make Obama & all pols know we support strikers.

Without massive protests we can't expect pols to submit to our demands.
