It’s Official: GE Workers To Strike In August

GE workers have had enough with management.

ABC affiliate, News 10, reports:

“A major union representing GE workers in the Midwest has announced its intention to go on strike starting the second week in August.

The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) announced Wednesday that four locals in Wisconsin and Ohio have collectively rejected GE’s final contract offer by an overwhelming margin.

IAM says a strike will begin on August 12 at 12:01 a.m.

‘Our working men and women at GE deserve a contract that mirrors their efforts in helping make GE aviation and medical the company’s most profitable divisions’ said IAM International President Robert Martinez Jr.

Sticking points in the contract negotiations still include wages, overtime, healthcare and retirement issues.”
