The National Labor Relations Board has issued a decision in favor of Honeywell Plant officials regarding a complaint that they illegally locked out members of the United Steelworkers Union.

Honeywell’s Metropolis plant restarts production today, 18 days after a gas leak at the facility.

On the evening of Oct 26, employees there reported a uranium hexafluoride gas (UF-6) leak that put the plant into emergency shutdown mode.

A company investigation determined the leak was internal and caused by mechanical failure near the end of the production process.
