Honeywell’s Metropolis Work Plant in Granite City Illinois has been having a labor dispute and brought in replacement workers.
One day after the replacement workers were brought in something happened:
The Union said it was "an explosion" and that replacement workers "blew up" part of the plant.
Honeywell said it was "a loud noise" and not unexpected.
Inspectors for the Nuclear Regulatory Agency were on hand and they referred to it as a “small explosion”.
The company and regulators said that their were no injuries, no damage, and no release of activity.
Don’t you just hate it when you have one of those loud noises and everyone else thinks it’s an explosion?
