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.

"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
