IUE-CWA Local 201

 

Take Action

We need all Local 201 members, retirees, and friends to write their State Reps and State Senators and ask for their support on this bill. There is a very short window of time. Please go to https://actionnetwork.org/letters/protect-manufacturing-and-factory-workers-during-the-covid-19-emergency/  today and sign the letter to tell your elected officials to stand up for our safety!

The workers at the General Electric plant in Lynn, MA have launched a protest to demand that the company fix appalling safety conditions at the facility and allow workers to manufacture the life-saving ventilators the whole country so desperately needs.

GE is one of America’s leading producers of ventilators, but it is laying off workers instead of using its excess capacity to help meet our country’s needs as soon as possible. President Trump should use his authority under the Defense Production Act to require GE to use its highly-skilled union workforce and underutilized facilities to produce ventilators and save lives during this pandemic.
