LUNCHTIME RALLY – GE FAIRCHILD GATE
WEDNESDAY APRIL 22, 2015
11:42AM TO 12 NOON
• BETTER PENSIONS WITH COLA
• STOP MEDICAL COST SHIFTING ON US
• STOP CUTS ON RETIREMENT BENEFITS
We ask all our members to punch out and join this short rally at the GE Fairchild St. gate.
All IUE-CWA GE Locals are holding Contract 2015 protests at their plants on this day. GE retirees will be protesting this same day at the GE Shareholders Meeting in Oklahoma City and buses of union members from IUE-CWA Local 1004 (GE Strothers plant in Arkansas City, Kansas) will be joining the retirees.
With National Contract negotiations opening on June 1, 2015 in New York City, union members need to deliver a strong message that we want better pensions and improved affordable medical and an end to the huge cost shifting that has been thrown on our backs the last 4 years We also need to let GE know we will fight to protect our retirement benefits and that GE’s recent elimination of such benefits on salaried exempt employees was outrageous.
A corporation making over $16 Billion in annual profits out of its Industrial Divisions has no reason to treat its employees and our members in this horrible fashion.
Please PUNCH out and join us in a short but important CONTRACT 2015 protest. Wear your red CBC T-shirts for the April 23 protest. If you do not have one yet- wear a blue Local 201 T-shirt. Remember to punch back in.
IUE-CWA LOCAL 201
