Lynn Votes NO!  Tentative Agreement Rejected!

Members of Local 201 in Lynn, MA and Local 301 in Schenectady, NY voted to REJECT the Tentative Agreement between the IUE and the General Electric Company yesterday.  We are awaiting communication from IUE-CWA for more details, including the final tally from all IUE-CWA GE sites.  For now, report to work as usual and prepare for a strike.  Neither side has served a termination letter, meaning we are still working under our National Agreement per the contract:

IUE-CWA Local 201 Delegates vote to ACCEPT (2-1)

Please read the Memorandum of Settlement that contains the details of the Tentative Agreement.  Below as a .PDF file.  

Today, GE Retirees lead a demonstration outside GE Global Operations in Cincinnati, Ohio.  They were supported by the Coordinated Bargaining Committee, including 201 delegates Bill Maher, Adam Kaszynski, and Freddy Russell.  Retirees built GE, and the Company totally disregards their important contributions and attacks their benefits.  We say NO MORE! Watch the video of the rally here.
