Call Your Senator - 1-855-980-2231

Many workers in this country don't have paid sick or family leave, and even that do may not have leave that is adequate in the face of the COVID-19 Pandemic.  Call your Senator now and demand they extend paid sick days and paid family leave to all workers by passing the P.A.I.D. Leave Act (S.3513):1-855-980-2231. While your on the phone make sure to tell them about our health and safety concerns in the Plant right now.

LOCAL 201 DEMANDS 2-WEEK PAID SHUT DOWN

Official Statement on Local 201 5S Campaign for Safety and Jobs

3/31/20

IUE-CWA Local 201 considers our work manufacturing resources for the United States military to be an essential role.  However, the supply chain and the lives of workers are being jeopardized because we do not have the necessary supplies to keep our factory safe. We want to keep working, but we need some basic resources from GE to keep workers and the broader public safe. Our lives and those of our families and communities are essential.

IUE-CWA LOCAL 201 – OFFICIAL NOTICE

REGARDING SAFETY AND WORKING CONDITIONS AT GE-LYNN (COVID-19)

Whereas a member of our approximately 1260-person bargaining unit, was sent home Friday evening after reporting that a member of his household has, or is suspected of having the coronavirus; 

Whereas he likely had contact with some number of bargaining unit members, as well as with various objects and items in Building 74; 

"We want to keep working, but we want to do it safely!"


Local 201 is advocating for Supplies, Sanitizing, Six Feet, Sick Days, and Serving the Public

Supplies
We get too many reports of periodic shortages of cleaning supplies, Personal Protective Equipment, sanitizer, soap, cleaning spray bottles, and rubber gloves.  We work with metal, cardboard, and other surfaces where the virus can live for long periods of time.  We need access to proper supplies at all times.
Sanitizing
